Just like it was back a year or two with the LG PA70G and then LG releases the LG PA75U with full 3D.
The LG PA85U would be like the LG PA70G but without the 3D.
I did read on a Korean electronics site that it's DLP link ready so I don't know what that means, perhaps ? it won't enable all 3D ?
But why in this day and age ?

It has Dark Chip 3

Here is their link: Korean LG

No 3D information on Korean LG site.
But I see a 3D Magic Remote picture in PF87K Korean site:
http://www.lge.co.kr/lgekr/product/d...tab_features_3
And I see a not 3D Magic Remote picture in PF85U USA site:
http://www.lg.com/us/projectors/lg-P...-led-projector


I think PF87K is a 3D Ready projector.

The PF85U is the USA release version of the PF80U and is the one that most people are discussing within this thread. No known differences between the PF80U and PF85U that I am aware of.

Just like it was about a year or two ago when LG released the PA70G with a half baked 3D set up when you had to jump through hoops just to get some kind of 3D going but not all 3D formats.
That was until ? LG released the LG PA75U when you just simply plug and play and you had 3D with many different 3D formats, so as long as your player or input device had the right format.
I would venture to guess it's the same with the PF85U except the PF85U did not come with 3D but perhaps later this year in September LG might ? maybe ? release the Korean version the PF87K in the USA as the PF87U ? with a working 3D with many formats to choose from.
But in this day and age why released something with a half backed 3D set up ?
I felt sorry for those who bought the LG PA70G and had to go through all the trouble just to get some kind of 3D going.

Pardon my double posts but I looked at Cine4Home's review of the LGPF80G and looked the picture of the dissembled projector and I saw only 1 XD video processor.
I wonder if the PF85U ? would only have one ?
Or perhaps , maybe if LG releases a US version of the LG PF87K would it have tripple XD engine ?
Of course it would come at a higher price.

If the price comes down on the LGPF85U drastically I am going to hold onto my money until I see what comes out later this fall by either LG or other projector companies.
Until then I have the LG PA75U to keep me happy.

am i right that the projector still needs a converter box for 3d? does it support 3d in full hd... so 1080p at 120hz?

Bought a PF87k yesterday, will post more when it arrives.

Expensive at about $1,500US or $1,800AU but not many 1920x1080 LED 3D projectors around is there ?

There's about 3 on ebay, with absolutley no reviews for this unit yet.

Korean model, so i will need new remotes and a new power cord.

Anyone know the Model Numbers of both of the remotes? I'm guessing it will same as other LG projectors.

Anyone know if the built in tuner will work in Australia? I'm guessing not, but not sure.

Korea----->ATSC
Australia--->DVB-T

Not work in Australia...not work in Spain and the rest of Europe


PF80G is very expensive here (around 1000€)
I can't wait to make the leap to the 1080p led but for now I still continue with my beloved PB60G

The misterious PF1500...And if it were FullHD LED, Native 3D, Glass Lens, Zoom, and Affordable price.

Too good to be true...or maybe not?

So the PF87k is better then the Acer k750, viewsonic pro9000 and optoma hd91? Does this projector have zoom, anamorphic lens, glass lens, and no focus issues? "half clear/half blurred screen"

It matches or beats them in color-accuracy, native on/off contrast, resolution, motion clarity, extra features, portability, and price.
They match or beat it in calibrated brightness, still-picture clarity, placement flexibility, and dynamic contrast.

None of what you've listed comes with an included anamorphic lens, but all can support one.
They still haven't included zoom on the LG for some reason.

Simple <$250 dedicated black-fabric theater room, build in a day, takedown in an hour.

Still-picture quality? Placement flexibility is important for me! I currently have a Acer k750, would it be worth it to get it or no? I'm thinking about getting a Vizio 70" 4k TV by November, and I know for a fact that it would beat it, or should I say kill it! In picture quality/clarity, but 70" is just a bit too small for me! The smallest I would get for a TV to permanently replace my projector in my living room is 84/85" inches! I just remembered that some company is selling a 84" 4k TV for $6000 with free shipping,. That's coming very close to a high-end projector, would it be better for me to go that route, seeing as the prices are coming down? If I find the link and brand, I'll post it!


I currently use a 110" screen from about 10 feet away, would it be worth it to try and wait it out for better LED projectors to come out next year, or go with the Vizio for the time being instead?
