Installation and Ease of Use

You don’t have a lot of time to set up a projector before the meeting starts. Often, you only have a few minutes. If you don’t want to keep everyone waiting, and risk appearing unprofessional, the projector must be simple to set up.

This projector doesn’t need to be far away from the screen to produce 120” images. You only need a spot 7.2-inches. You also won’t need to rearrange the room to ensure there’s enough distance, and this will save you time. The only downside is the projector’s slightly heavier weight at 33 pounds.

Thanks to AI ThinQ technology, Alexa and Google Assistant are built-in. You can control the projector with your voice. You can start the presentation with a simple request. If you prefer staying silent, it is Bluetooth compatible and comes with a remote.

Pros

  • Simple installation
  • 12 alignment positions
  • Voice-controlled
  • Compact size
  • HD and 4K compatible

Cons

  • With 2,700 lumens, you will still need to shade bright windows.
  • At 33-pounds, the projector is similar in weight to other models but there are some designed for home use that are lighter and easier to transport.

Picture Quality

If your images are grainy or blurry, no one will be paying attention. You won’t have this problem with the HU85LS. Images are bright, crisp, and clear in 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution. Colors are bold and blacks are rich and deep.

HDR 10 technology and Dynamic tone mapping, combined with the 3-channel laser wheel ensure that images are bright and colors true to life. It also comes with TruMotion technology for smooth, frame-by-frame animation.

If you’re worried about ambient lighting interfering with image quality, you can relax. With 2,700 lumens, you might not need to hang blackout curtains. If there is bright sunlight and the windows can’t be shaded, you will need to darken the room during the presentation.

Consumer Impressions

New to the market, consumers are still making their minds up. First impressions though are mainly positive. The projector is a breeze to set up and even center the images with the warping function. It also produces great images if the lighting is right. The primary consumer concern is lumens. They’ve noticed the room does need to be slightly dark for image clarity.

Conclusion

There is a lot to like about the HU85LS short-throw laser projector. Image clarity in HD and 4K is impressive. Colors are vivid and you don’t have to worry about fading due to Dynamic color mapping. It’s also easy to set up and align your images.
