This is a Full HD projector that tops out at 1080p resolution, with brightness at just 450 ANSI lumens. The LED light source is rated for up to 30,000 hours, and the projector has a built-in 5-watt mono speaker and supports Bluetooth, so you can send audio to a separate system if you want.

As you’d expect from a portable projector, it’s pretty lightweight at just 2 pounds. It’s meant to be used to project images as small as 30 inches diagonally, all the way up to 120 inches. It’s got automatic adjustments for keystone alignment, too, so you shouldn’t have to spend any time dialing in the picture on your own.

The projector is running LG’s webOS-based operating system, which means it has access to a large number of apps, including all the major streaming services, like YouTube, Apple TV+, Netflix, Disney+ and more. It also has Apple’s AirPlay 2 and HomeKit built in, and it’s simple to share video from Android devices as well.

It’s not meant to be the One Projector to Rule Them All; instead it’s the sort of thing LG imagines you could carry from a kid’s room to a playroom, or maybe even on the road in a business setting, without all that much in the way of setup as you go from place to place.

Projectors had long been large, cumbersome pieces of equipment that cost thousands of dollars. But in 2021, there is a wide range of options, from excellent 4K projectors to great on-the-go portable projectors, and that's precisely where the new LG CineBeam PF610P slots in. 

The latest in LG's CineBeam lineup brings full HD video to screens as big as 120-inches. Thanks to its 1,000 ANSI lumens of brightness coming from the 4-channel LED light source, this projector can work in various environments other than pure darkness. Also, because the projector uses LED technology, the lamp's life span is up to 30,000 hours of use.
