Please can you tell me what is the diagonal in inches of the screen that you projecting your LG, considering the statement that you are not satisfied from the brightness?

I was projecting it at about 95 inches but now I have it at around 80.
For me I guess the projector will have to be good enough and a hold over until a affordable LED 1080P projector comes on the market.
This LGPA75U is good enough and is a good multimedia projector for TV , games, movies but so so for computer graphics.
Yes you can surf the web with it but the picture quality is so so but it will get you by and readable.
Games I have played on it ?
I tested it with Heavy Rain it passed the picture quality test for that game.
Call of duty 4 modern warfare is ok.
Ratched and Clank it passed the picture quality test.
All those games was played on the PS3.
Cities XL ? the picture quality is so so, but playable.
Maybe it's because it's a computer based computer game.
Maybe the graphics card might have something to do with it or the problem with computer graphics not being able to map the square pixels into diamond pixels.
The brightness is good in some areas but not for 3D.
Movies so far looked good.

Thank you for your reply, and I assumed that for 80 inches is ok! But reading the forum i am very skeptical about the lg pa 70 g. I had the lg HW300 g and i sold it after one week losing 300 euro! I could'nt accept a projection at 80 inches and be so dim, 55 inches was ok, that's why I still have a fear!

I have the LG HX300 and never was happy with it LG says it's 300 Lumens but people who posted here on AVS who read or seen people who tested it say it's 280 Lumens.
I bought the LG PA75U about 4 weeks ago the only thing I am not happy with is playing one game on the computer Cities XL.

Yes I realize that the projector is 720P and my computer monitor is 1080P so I had my expectations way out of what they were suppose to be for that game.
However ? games on the PS3 especially when playing Ratchet and Clank on my other projector the LG HX300 that not only meet my expectations I am happy with how everything looks on the PA75U with all the games I have played.

If there is a that you might be able to go to a store over there that might have a demo model of the LGPA70G or the LGPA75U maybe you can go and see if it meets your expectations or not.
By the way I know there are going to be those who say this is suppose to be the Acer K335 thread and why are you talking about the LG models.

Well, I was going to either by the Acer K335 or the Vivitek Qumi 7 but they were suppose to come out this summer and they still have not come out yet here in the USA.
Besides I don't think many would buy those projectors with the $ 1000 retail price with only 720P.

Actually ? the Vivitek Qumi 7 is only 100 Lumens more than the LG PA75U so what would justify the difference of $ 350 ? beside the Qumi 7 does not have a built in TV Tuner in which I needed.

What people don't realize is that all those 3 projectors might have the exactly the same DMD DLP chip sets, and Luminus Phlatlight light engines.

I don't see any reason why they would not.

The LGPA70G or the LG PA75U might have the Phaltlight LEDs down rated but maybe the same Luminus Phaltlight LEDs in the Qumi 7 and the Acer K335.

At least all those projectors have the same Texas Instruments DLP chip sets.

I am guessing there might be even away to bump up the lumens on the LG PA75U and 70 G projectors with some kind way of getting into the service menu and adjust the amps for the LEDs.

If you can wait LG will be coming out with a new projector with 1080P.

It's the LG PF80G 1080P with 1,000 lumens.

Since this new LG projector is coming out I don't think many will be buying the Acer K335 or the Vivitek Qumi 7 because ? what's the point ?

I personally couldn`t wait. Its gonna be a while before we see any decent reviews of LG`s new model and then even more time before its faults gonna be discovered and fixed- will be more than happy to join the crowd once second batch is out. This being said I purchased PA75U recently for 460USD - prices came down as expected and so far this is the best that`s out there within this spec/price range.

Does anyone know, if the K335 is equipped with a HDMI 1.4a-connection? I recently bought this projector, but I do not own a 3D-blu-ray-player with HDMI-1.4a-output in order to test 3D without PC.

Many thanks in advance.
Kind regards
Thomas

It will do 3D from a PC, not from frame packed Blu-ray Discs. Please read the review posted in the link above.

I reviewed the Acer K335 for projectorsreview.com (review is HERE). LED portable/pocket projectors, such as the K335, have features that make them well suited for the 'road warrior' business traveler, but generally they are not very good as a home theater projector. In the case of the K335 the actual, measured lumens, when set in its best preset picture modes is just over 350 lumens. I didn't find any of the the K335's preset picture modes to have close to accurate grey scale, gamut or gamma. Again as a business class projector the K335 if competitive with other similar LED models and has performance that is OK for routine business presentations, but not well suited for movie viewing within a home entertainment environment.

Dear AV_Intergrated,
here a quote from the review above-mentioned:
Quote:
The 3D capabilities of the K335 were not evaluated for this review. - See more at: http://www.projectorreviews.com/acer/acer-k335-led-portable-projector-review/#sthash.l8hUqQI8.dpuf
Since there's no evidence for the question, whether this projector has or hasn't a HDMI-1.4a-connection, I will not exclude that it has.

I've been using a LG HX300 for four years until a few pixels passed away, and was / is very well suited as a home theater projector. I am sure that it has often been discussed here, but it is not correct, just comparing measured values (measured in white) when comparing LED projectors with bulb projectors. Impartially, the picture of the Acer really is three times brighter than the picture of the LG was / is, but that doesn't matter in a darkened room (home theater). As for looking football at daylight, the higher lumens output certainly is an advantage.

Kind regards
Thomas

It also depends on how much control you're given. The p300 default settings are beyond terrible and using them would make anyone think it isn't useable as they over-saturate and crush colors, darks and lights badly. Turn to user control and raise brightness a little, drop contrast a few and turn color down a LOT and viola, it has a pleasantly balanced, sharp picture with matching or higher contrast than a majority of lamp-based projectors under $1800. Its black levels in a dark room look great while dark details aren't lost on a 110" screen.

Sadly the fan noise (pitch, mostly) and too warm (at the high end) WB take away their parts of the full experience, but the point is, default settings on some of these cheap models are a joke. I did get the service menu codes, and now the default settings are useful in different lighting situations. Best <$399 ever.

I wonder what can be fiddled with in the 335 service menu.

Simple <$250 dedicated black-fabric theater room, build in a day, takedown in an hour.
Easy $25-40 DIY black/dark-grey ambient-light rejecting screen, grab two things from a local store..mix..roll..done.
