The Focus is a VERY BIG issue for me and I'm not alone. Now if there were 2 or 3 pro reviews on this model and they were positive and 20 user reviews and they were mostly positive, I could understand maybe someone not liking the PJ. But you guys in this room that own the unit got to give the rest of us, heads up, because many of us don't want to have to pay 15 percent restocking fee if we don't like the unit.
I would be using something like this LED PJ as a pc monitor, so top to bottom, left to right focus is important for me.
What I wanted to figure out and I couldn't a few weeks ago , is how many people had focus problem 5 out of 10, or 1 out of 10, and without pro reviews and user reviews , I decided to pass on this PJ.
Maybe some of you guys that do own this PJ, can post something on youtube , mini reviews. Because if it goes on sale again, I would like to know if problems are rare or the norm.
I had the same feeling as you are now. I was reluctant to get the LGPA70g while Frys' was on sale 1 month ago with the price $450. I read every comment this threat and I was so confused and asked myself that should I get this projector. Since the forum has positive and negative comments, I could not conclude it was good or not. I put a lot of hope on Q5 because it was the pre-release and there many good feedback about Q2. At the time Q5 releases and I was so excited to order this projector from Amazon. However, the device is a little bit expensive at the price $650.00.
I really enjoyed about the Q5 and it was so tiny and the picture quality is very good but I was not happy about the fan noise and over price.
Since Fry was on sale again for the LGPA70G with the price $499 + tax, I evaluated the device wa stronger or brighter and the price was cheaper. I was reluctant to buy this unit at my local Fry's.
Yes, I was glad to move the right decision and I also was worried about the focus issue which other members noticed.
I was surprised that LG PA70g is a lot of brightness to compare with Q5 and fan is less noise. I don't have a focus issue every time and it happens few seconds it comes and it goes.
Since I am a novice user, I don't expect to much as other experienced users. My wife usually against me to buy an expensive thing but since she saw the projector's performance and she had no
word to me. She is so happy and enjoyable about the projector and blesses me a thousand of kisses : )
Another reason I like the LG PA70g it has a short throw, and the picture is very good. Last week, I streamed the Battleship movie from Vudu with the 1080 p resolution and played the Avergenger movie through a Blue ray player to the people at church, every one was enjoyable and very surprised.
