LG AF115 Review

thinkdigit.com
9 August 2011
  • Summary: LG touts the AF115 as a premium home cinema projector, and post evaluation, we have to agree. At Rs 1.6 lakhs, the AF115 does cost quite a bit, but high performing full HD projectors aren't exactly affordable, and good performing ones definitely aren't. An AV receiver is needed to handle audio - a glaring omission. That not withstanding, the AF115 will please videophile movie-buffs with deep pockets.
  • Pros: Full 1080p support and excellent handling of HD videos, SD content looks good, Lots of video settings to tinker with, Detailed image tweak settings, Well built and attractive looking � important to some!, Dedicated key to manage display height via vertical lens shift, Backlit remote. Ah, finally!
  • Cons: No audio handling;separate AV receiver required if you want audio as well, Extremely glossy body � smudge-magnet, Much bigger than some other 1080p projectors

  • Conclusion: First of all, sorry LG AF115 , no award. There is no way to decide the value proposition without having a decent idea about pricing. I’ll say that if the price is under $2000 (where I think it belongs), it would at least be seriously considered. There are several things going for the AF115. First, it’s still brighter than average in “best mode” among 1080p home projectors, and it combines those lumens with impressive color.
  • Pros: An impressive almost 700 lumens in “best” mode, makes handling larger screens practical, and dynamic, Excellent color, post calibration, especially skin tones which really do look a touch better than some very good projectors, Reasonably “good enough” black levels, though not great, Better than average placement flexibility with 1.8:1 zoom and lens shift, Dynamic iris, though not producing the blackest blacks, does offer pretty smooth operation, Iris can be put in man...
  • Cons: CFI a bit jerky at times with 24fps film content. Not recommended for movie viewing, Black level performance is “average” for a normal projector, and a ways from matching any of the ultra high contrast projectors, Documentation – pretty basic, though generally helpful, but lacks good descriptions of many features. For example, Real Cinema On, 24fps 1080 becomes 48fps. Set it Off and it uses 3:2 pull-down. It’s not explained in the manual., No anamorphic lens support, ...

  • Conclusion: LG’s SXRD projector, the AF 115, is extremely bright and can happily illuminate pictures of over three meters in size. The drawback: The LG only delivers a truly attractive picture once you’ve carried out extensive fine-tuning — the colors don’t look so hot in the factory setup. So if you’re crazy about huge pictures and have enough patience to adjust the device properly, the LG gets the green light.
  • Pros: Extremely bright., Superb 24p reproduction., Excellent video processing.
  • Cons: Requires manual adjustment for optimum picture., Operating noise is too loud., Bluish residual illumination., No letterbox zoom., Some color-shading when using the zoom lens.

Test: LG AF115 SXRD (Heimkino-Beamer)

CHIP Online
13 September 2010
  • Conclusion: Der LG Electronics AF115 hinterlässt im Test ein ambivalentes Gefühl. Seine Bilder sind zumindest bei HD-Material von ausreichender Schärfe, allerdings fehlt es sichtbar an Zeichnung in dunklen Bildbereichen. Die Farbdarstellung bietet ebenfalls Potenzial für Verbesserungen. Ausstattung und Bedienung zeigen gute Ansätze, allerdings vermissen wir einen horizontalen Lens-Shift – und ein Bildschirmmenü ohne allzu viele Übersetzungsfehler.
  • Pros: Helligkeit, Schärfe bei HD-Video, Anschlüsse
  • Cons: Durchzeichnung in dunklen Bereichen, Stromverbrauch, Kein horizontaler Lens-Shift

  • Conclusion: Der LG-Projektor AF 115 ist konkurrenzlos hell und schafft Bildgrößen jenseits der drei Meter. Ein ansprechendes Bild liefert er aber erst mit viel Tuning. Wer auf Riesenbilder steht, liegt mit dem LG richtig – die Farben ab Werk sind wenig faszinierend.

  • Excerpt: La manera más eficaz de comercializar un producto con grandes posibilidades de éxito no es otra que apostar por una tecnología fiable, respetada por los consumidores y de contrastada eficacia
  • Pros: Presume de un contraste y un detalle en sombras excelentes, Su calidad de imagen global está a la altura de la ofrecida por los mejores proyectores de su precio
  • Cons: Su notable peso exige utilizar un soporte robusto para colgarlo del techo con seguridad, Como todas las propuestas de la comparativa, utiliza un iris dinámico, por lo que los fotogramas que muestran objetos brillantes y oscuros simultáneamente pierden algo de intensidad
