Hi Honzik

Congrats on your purchase, hope it gives you many hours of entertainment. Double thanks for the speaker test , i was particularly interested in this , it sounds pretty loud and clear to me, dont think the PB70G can match it. Just wondering about the HEATING , how hot does the projector get say after a good solid use of 4-6 hours ? since its 30,000 hours lamplife im going to use this for everything so it will be on alot. Ahh yes one more thing ,when you got the projector , do you get option to select language ? Im based in uk and need english option from the start, what did language setting did you recieve the projector in ? lastly the plug, i can clearly see in photo its a 2pin plug , is there an adaptor in the box for uk ? 3 pin ?

Ok off topic , for the maths/techies... the power consumption of this is 130 Watts , can someone give me idea how much its would cost to run this say 45 hours a week, over the year what would i pay in electricity ? is this machine energy efficent ?

for the maths people ..UK cost per kilowatt is approx 22p , so can someone work out the overall cost of running this machine for like a 1yr ? sorry i ask alot , just math is not my strong suit
post #127 of 2305
The math (non Geek)

52 weeks times 45 hours = 2340 total hours per year

2340 times 130 watts = 304,200 watts.

304,200 devided by 1000 = 304.2 KW per year

304.2 times .22 = 66.924 ? (value in UK )

5.577 ? per month

I will try answer to your questions.
1) Yes, it sounds pretty loud and clear, but dont expect huge bass effect ......as expected at these small speakers.
2) I havent tested it yet for so many hours in row but there is no heating problem in my opinion. The fan speed is auto-set by choose one of the minimum/medium/maximum power saving mode but NOT by the tempreature. You can see in the videos that the fan noise is louder/quiter immediately when you switch to any other power saving mode.
3) When you run this projector for the first time, it will ask you for selecting of the language. But this popup window will never show up in the future. Its just first-use popup dialog.
4) I have ordered LG PA70G from the cyberport.de (Germany) and I am from Czech Republic and there was just classic EU power connector as you can see on the pictures.

Power consumption I have measured was exactly 60W / 80W / 110W for MAX / MED / MIN power saving mode.

Hi Honzik1,

First, congrats on your new toy and many thanks for the time spent on posting all the pictures.

Nevertheless, I'd like you to give us an idea of the width or diagonal of the image on the 3 last pics cause it looks pretty good.

But as pics doesn't really reveal reality, what size can you get with good quality ?

thanks

I have tried screen size around 100" and in the night it was bright enought also in maximum power saving mode. I have actualy screen diagonal size 172cm and its good. But there is little problem with focus, one corner seems be more focused than the another, but just slightly.... So I have to pull the focus wheel between these 2 focused corners and its on 95% well focues everywhere, but how I can fix this small issue?
post #131 of 2305
On previous small led projectors, some users got good resluts by warming it up 10 or 15' and then adjusted the focus.

That because it was plastic lens, I don't know what kind of material is your model.

Anyway, optic is small and maybe perfect focus may not be possible.
post #132 of 2305
The remote controls for the PA70G and PB60G sound like they make a fairly pronounced click when pressed. Has LG moved away from the soft rubber buttons and started putting hard plastic buttons on the remotes?
post #133 of 2305
Here's something strange:

In the photos the LG logo on the PA70G is red and in this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5Gpw_mvEAc&feature=related the LG logo is grey on the PA70G, but red on the PB60G

LG does some wierd things for sure.

+1
I Also want to know the material of the Lens. Would hate if the plastic trend continues.

The PA70G is about to hit Europe and it looks like a pretty good match for my needs. However, given the confusion concering previous LG LED beamers, I'd love to get a definite answer on the question of all questions (best by someone with first hand experience):

Does the PA70G suffer from stretching issues or not?

Thanks!

The PA70G is now available at FRYS.com
post #139 of 2305
Thanks I just ordered one..I will be comparing this to my LG HS201 that I've been using for years.
post #140 of 2305
According to LG there will also be a PA72G model, apparently it will be like the PA70G, but also include Intel WiDi
(Intel's wireless display technology)

Very tempting....only 6 benjamins..........

Ugh. But I refuse to buy anything that uses the ****** diamond shaped pixel setup....since it will be hooked to a PC.

as a computer display it really sucks, text is not sharp at all, I think a 1080P model in this price range will be coming out next year since the competition is heating up big time. it's still tempting but...I think I can resist it, maybe
post #144 of 2305
Hey guys ...

What do you make of the PB60G ? the smaller version ? im not sure what to go for , is the PA70G significantly better projector ? now theres this PA72G ? really LG should have just made 2 models instead of releasing so many , its confusing and makes choice difficult..the Widi feature should have come standard with the PA70G.

This looks like a great contender. But at what price? with that kind of Lumens and lens shift I bet is not going to be cheap. A 1080p Pico Chip could result on a much more afforable product.

i get that a lot of you are trying to do pj theaters on the cheap -but saving even a few hundred dollars on a dlp chip isnt gonna make much difference.
post #148 of 2305
I was thinking about the same thing. Is the PA70g worth that 250$ extra. I like in the PB60g thats its much more portable and the different is only the +200 Lumens ( if its true). Actually i watched the 2 youtube video below side by side from the PA70g and the PB60g, and there is not much of a difference. Settings are different, so cant compare them well, but i think with same settings, there is not much difference. The PB60g looks bright like the PA70g .

Watch them side by side!
post #149 of 2305
A review at amazon.de also states that the PA70G isn't all that much brighter than the HW300Y (the HW300Y has less brightness than the PB60G to start with). In the reviewers opinion the PA70G cost of an addiional 300 euros isn't really worth it.

http://www.amazon.de/product-reviews/B0089RG30W/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1

Also, the review states the PA70G's sharpness is less than the HW300Y.

According to the review the unit produces a whistle like sound at all brightness settings, whereas the HW300Y did not have this issue.

eat_meat, you are always coming out with some great info, dunno how you do it but thank you man. I know it's a matter of time. doesn't someone make a 20,000 hr hybrid already? wxga though can't think of the brand but it's those SLIM projectors, here...

Casio WXGA 2500 Lumen Green Slim Projector:

Brilliant presentations in almost any lighting condition with 2500 lumens
Lightweight, travel-friendly design (just 5 lbs)
Native WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution for remarkable clarity and color
1,800:1 contrast ratio allows for a clear, crisp picture
Energy-efficient lamp that lasts up to 20,000 hours

why can't they borrow a 1080P chip and pop it in there??? it seems like it would the logical thing to do
