I checked LG PA75C:

- 1450-1200 USD, 9000-7300 CNY
- wireless DLNA and Intel Widi
- built in Tuner DVB-C
- video on demand
- different remote
- same hardware and lens

It overpriced well.

Hopefully LG will get their act together and fix the focus problem with the new model.

It sounds like a nice unit, wifi , smart internet for surfing the web, tv tuner, 2 remotes.

It is 1,100 dollars in exchange currency with china.

Do you think it will reach fry's in march 2013? For 499 or 399?

This would be an all in one device, tv, internet, wifi, PJ! Killer PJ if it works. smile.gif

I highly doubt that frys will drop the price on this unit if it ever comes to the US. But hey what do I know.
I will just take the luck that I have and settle with the PA70g for now and if the PA75U ever drops to 399, I will just pick it up and sell my old PA70g projector. I can definately resell it for at least 400 on craigslist

I will definitely buy the PA75 if it shows up in the US even if it has less than perfect focus, does anyone know if tv tuners in china are compatible with US broadcasts?

I've put in my PA70G one monthly salary.About 547 €.And I am very happy.In the USA are certainly bigger than salaries for us in Slovakia.And I don't regret buying a projector.Some would prefer shopping around for free.

$ 28 that's not a bad price for what it looks like a pretty strong projector mount.
I seen securtity cam mounts there on Amazon for $ 6 but has limited swivel angles.

How long will that sale price be available ?
For $ 399 what the heck I might even buy it.
I did notice that they have shipping available and not like the last time where it was just in store only sale.
I was wondering if any one knows if this sale price is only for in store pick up ? or is that price available for anyone who does not live near a FRYS store ?

That mount is available at Monoprice for even less than that price (and it comes in white or black).

You are wrong and missed something. 3D works on LG PA70G through VGA at
- 1280x720 and 1280x768 @120HZ resolutions without any issue.

You have to use custom 120hz resolution, or my custom monitor.inf file, what I posted earlier. I made a quick shoot, only the uploaded photo is blurred and bad quality, thanks the phone, but not the real one.

@Tataniko "You are wrong and missed something. 3D works on LG PA70G through VGA at

I could not get my PA70G to display 120Hz in VGA or HDMI at 1280.

The picture that I downloaded DO NOT indicate that you did either.

Please use the info button (centre button in the round dial) to show the ACTUAL frequency and scan rate of the display.

That shows what the projector is displaying (not what you are sending it). For example sending it a 1080 picture does not make it a 1080 projector.

I think it's still going to be pretty expensive, here is mostly what we have to look forward to Link.

BenQ, has that 720p laser projector, but it's going to be a few years at least before the price comes down.

BenQ Laser LW61ST, BenQ Laser LX60ST around $1800.

Hey guys! I got this projector back in November and i have to say i absolutely fell in love with it. I think i must have gotten lucky with this projector because the focus is just perfect and my projector was manufactured in June.

I have a really important question to ask you guys.. I want to use this projector outdoors but the bad thing is that it has to be connected and it doesn't come with a built in battery supply. Do any of you use this outside? what do you guys use to power the projector instead of just plugging it in.

Hopefully some of you can help me out here. I live in the US if that helps out.

i have LG PA70G LED last 2 weeks ( just to go on )
iam not that happy - its OK with movies but not with games and text
just waiting 1080p high end led/laser or 4k under $5k ( i think 2016 will be fordable )

next year if i could get 1080p led/laser mid range like -$1.5k i will go for it ..... until then !!!

laser tech is easier ( no focusing issue and cheaper ) but the tech expense not the materials it self !!!!

anyways lets wait and see when competition rises 2013 biggrin.gif

@tataniko. Did you use the info button on the projector to confirm what you are posting? Did the projector show the resolutions AND scan frequencies at the top of the display?
