If you’ve ever dreamt of having a portable projector, then at some point you’re going to buy it. What is better than watching live sports on big screen in your backyard, so the question is: Which one you should buy?

According to Best Buy, If you’re looking for a projector for your home theater or for travelling then LG PF50KA projector is the best deal you can have. LG PF50KA combine an elegant design, compact size with high picture quality at an excellent price.

While looking for a projector, space and budget must be always taken into consideration. If you’re looking for a home theater, you will need a large space to get an optimum experience. If you’ve got that then you might look for the price next whether it fits to your budget or not.

As for the high-end projectors, Sony and other big brands dominate the industry. But if you are looking for a projector under $600 with high-quality resolution, big screen size then absolutely go for LG PF50KA.

I’ve personally looked into the LG PF50KA and found some great pros and cons. Let’s take a dive into it so that you can decide if it fits to your need or not.


LG PF50KA has a compact size and easy to carry while travelling. You will not have to face any difficulty while installing the projector. Thanks to its autokeystone, it works great when the projector is pointing up.

Autokeystone is important as it prevents image from distortion in the wrong direction. It makes sure that the person can comfortably watch the screen from any angle without any distortion.

The smallest size screen of LG PF50KA can project 25” screen from the projection distance of 31.1”. It can also automatically recharged when the projector is connected to the power.

One advantage of LG PF50KA is that it is light weighed, small size, portable and durable. Paired the light weight and compact size, that makes it great choice for travelling. But, one negative point you will find will be the weight of the remote. It is bit heavy to carry.  

Picture quality

If your projector lacks high definition picture, then believe me your watching experience will suck. Nothing says projector like a 1080p high resolution sharpness and lifelike picture.

Most of the projectors around 3000 lumens or 300 watts will burn hole in your pocket with $40 electricity bill every month. With LG PF50KA you’ll be able to comfortably watch movies in a semi-lit room and will save you extra bucks.

The dedicated modes of LG PF50KA are worth exploring. Especialy for sports fan, i found that switching to sports mode or any other cinema oriented mode gave me brighter picture, color and sharpness.
