Pin-sharp laser imaging
Using exceptional technology for its class, the HU80KSW uses a cutting-edge laser light source. This powerful light source offers consistent lighting through its lifetime and also the promise of longer lamp life. It also provides this compact projector with excellent brightness and contrast, making the most of UHD 4K and HDR content.
Support for HDR10 and HLG
Making the most of the laser lighting, the HU80KSW supports HDR10 and HLG. HDR10 and HLG deliver greater brightness and contrast, for a truly life-like picture. These technologies work seamlessly to deliver a more natural picture with movies, games and TV.
4K UHD Resolution
Ultra HD 4K resolution gives you four times more detail than Full HD with over 8 million pixels! It delivers a sharper, more life-like picture with richer and more natural colour. It also lets you sit closer to the screen – making it ideal for smaller rooms, too.
Works well in smaller rooms with short throw
Capable of producing a 40 inch image from just 1.15 metres, the HU80KSW is ideal for smaller rooms. Up the image size to 80 inches and just 2.3 metres is required. For the largest screen size of 150 inches, the projector needs to be from 4.3 metres away – still achievable in many UK living rooms.
Portable design – use it vertically or horizontally
Featuring a handgrip and power cord reel, the HU80KSW is easy to move from room to room, or even a friend’s place. Once there it can be used vertically or horizontally. Vertical Auto Keystone and Zoom help you fine-tune the image for the best fit.
Connect and show, wirelessly
Featuring Smart Share, Wireless DLNA and Wireless Contents Share, you can stream what you’re watching on your smartphone or tablet to the projector – wirelessly. Bluetooth Sound Out lets you wirelessly output the sound to a Bluetooth speaker or Bluetooth enabled hi-fi or AV system.
All the right connections
Featuring twin HDMI sockets, both with HDCP2.2 compatibility, the HU80KSW is ideal for using with your UHD Blu-ray player, games console or TV set-top box. Twin USB interfaces are ideal for connecting media devices and playing back stored content. Other connections include digital and analogue audio outputs for wiring up to your hi-fi or AV system.
Make every movie and gaming night a memorable night, with the LG HU80KSW.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JackG from Does it all better than I expected This projector is a banger - ok it could be a little brighter - but the picture is absolutely pin sharp and there are enough settings to make it work fantastically in dark to semi-lit environments. Totally portable and versatile - I was looking for a projector I didn’t have to mount on the ceiling or set up a stand every time I used it and this works perfectly for me. I get a 106” picture from about 3.7 metres and although it ends up being very close to my head, it’s super quiet in eco mode. The onboard speakers are average but it has Bluetooth stereo out for when you need it and it works perfectly with my AV system - no sync issues - 5 mins set up and go. The only issue I have found is that low latency ‘game mode’ does work with Bluetooth which is annoying as I can see the potential for setting up gaming away from my living room more often than watching films... that said - I’m going to be trying outdoor cinema nights this summer. It’s basically a high 4.5 due to the smallest of issues but the sharpness and connectivity make happy to round it up! I feel like it’s on the pricey side - but I reckon that the laser’s life span will eventually pay for its self and this product is so unique - there’s nothing else I have found that is quite like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Keith 5938 from That’s some picture quality. I thought that I was getting the one that has an aerial jack and the voice activated remote. Having waited 5-6 weeks for this, undeterred, I simply went for the 4K UHD Firestick, so the possibility of network tv is restored, (and voice activation). I was initially going for a 100” screen but now may well push that out to 120” as the picture quality is magnificent. As it’s an led laser device it’s almost instant on and the built in speakers are very good indeed. The remote controls functions and menus via a pointer on the projected screen (witchcraft!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by jmmonline from All-in-one projector Very pleased with this self-contained and portable home media centre. Excellent bright and detailed picture, even in partially lit rooms. Bit disappointed that Amazon Prime can't be added but you can always plug in a streaming stick. Highly recommended.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mheinst from Good hardware, dreadful software updates Bought the beamer end of 2019. I'm happy with the hardware. LG stopped updating this beamers webOS 3.5 since 2017! Means no Prime, HBO Go, Disney+ and other new features. Only way to solve is to buy a stick of Android, Amazon or Apple TV. Just buy a non-smart beamer for less money and get Google TV with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob Stead from Amazing Projector Bought this as we needed a 4K projector to work with a wall mounted electric screen. It's extremely powerful, easy to adjust, and the picture quality is superb.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MichaelYaskin from Great all in one home cinema The difference between my old LED projector and this laser projector is huge. The price difference justifies the difference in picture and sound quality. Easy to set up in a 'stood-up' position on the floor, but its now ceiling mounted. Even at less than the recommend 4.3m for a 'direct throw' the picture is fantastic and the zoom adjusts nicely into the screen. The sound is as good as any TV so I have not needed any external speakers. Though the set up options are there to use. Only down side is the lack of apps. Netflix and YouTube are the main ones of a few still usable for this unit's OS. LG have explained this is due to decisions of the app providers so out of their control. However, a simple Fire TV stick inserted into one of two HDMI ports has given us endless things to watch. This also allows us to switch the projector on using an Alexa device in the room. All on all a very happy purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andy110980 from Awesome Picture, Great Sound and it's Portable! This is my first projector and I was looking for something reasonably priced and portable. I was very impressed with how quick and easy it was to setup. Also it has Netflix and other apps directly accessible. The HDMI port allowed easy connection for my Firestick and other devices. The zoom and focus were well positioned and within 10 minutes I was sitting watching a movie. My family and friends have all been amazed by the picture quality. The plug and power cable is stored in the base of the unit and a handle allows easy portability. As well as fantastic picture quality it has very good sound. Also bluetooth speakers can be connected if required. I'm extremely pleased with my purchase and would highly recommend this projector.
