$9K nets you the projector and a 100" screen suitable for most any room.
Twenty-two inches. That is all that LG's Laser TV projector asks in terms of distance away from its bundled 100 inch screen. What's more, the Ultra Short Throw projector's laser lamp works with the dark, angular reflection screen to produce a reported 150 nit brightness level in a moderately lit room.
Not only can the projector handle normal lighting conditions, but LG claims that the bulb will last an incredibly 25,000 hours, something that customers used to replacing bulbs every other year can appreciate.
The projector also includes an ATSC tuner which can pick over the HD with an antennae, 20W speakers, Wi-Fi enabled apps like Netflix and YouTube , 3 HDMI inputs, one optical output, and LG's Magic Remote.
The LG Laser TV should be on sale in April for $8999. While not cheap, the DLP design is great for both portable projection usage and for rooms with normal light levels and without several feet of space between the projector and screen.
