Please post as many First/Second/Third impression videos as you can! And please use a proper screen/lighting. Very anxious to see how this flagship UST performs!

At $5999 it's double the price of the Optoma p1 Smart 4K, which is releasing soon for $2,999.

http://4k.com/news/optomas-new-p1-4k...-in-one-25148/

How would you compare the two spec-wise?

That Optoma projector is a e-shift 4k projector which means it isn't a native 4k projector and it doesn't use pixel-shifting either.
That's one reason why it's cheaper.

Question Confirmation of 3d support?

When you get them can you confirm if it has 3d blu ray support (as the Optoma P1 is rumored to have). I currently have a lamp based 1080p Optoma UST projector and I don't want to have to give up watching my collection of 3d movies (especially newer releases from the MCU and titles like Alita: Battle Angel) if I upgrade to a 4k laser UST.

Has it been confirmed that the LG isn't a pixel shifter??? AFAIK the detailed spec is still a bit of a mystery.

I thought the difference in price was more down to the fact it uses two lasers rather than because it was not a fauxK projector).

This is a quote from one of Roberts posts on the LG :

" Sorry to belabor this issue of the chip set i the HU85LA, but for my final clarification the HU85LA is designed and built with TI's 0.66 DLP DMD chipset – 8.3 million pixels (3840 x2160) on the screen.

True native 4K is actually 8.8 million pixels (4096 x2160). The HU85LA delivers a native 3840x2160 full resolution with 8.3 million pixels in the 16:9 (aka 1.78:1) aspect ratio. True native 4K (4096x2160) delivers a wider screen with a aspect ratio of 1.9:1. "

Thanks for clarifying...

It shouldn't be an issue only being 3840x2160 though as AFAIK the UHD blu ray spec max resolution is 3840 x 2160 so any disc based or streaming based "4k" content that you might want to watch will only be that resolution anyway.

Really keen to find out if the LG will support 3d playback of 1080p 3d bd discs, as that is a must for me (and I understand that the Optoma P1 will support it). If it does support 3d then the native resolution and potentially wider color gamut offered by the dual laser LG might be enough to persuade me to pay the premium over the P1.

Thanks for the update Robert.....

I still find the specs very confusing because yesterday i watched a video on youtube in which a representative of LG was on a conference and he was saying that this is a laser projector with 3 diodes for Red Green and Blue......
He was also talking about they are going to look out for signs of consumers asking for a black version of the projector and they maybe consider releasing it in the future.
This was a conference in Germany and he talked about the European version not having tuners as well.
Finally he said the projector will hit European markets in October with a suggested price of € 6000,00 euro.

LG builds the HU85LA to each regions unique needs and regulations.

I have also asked for the projector to be available in black. It's a dual laser, red and blue lasers. The blue laser light is also converted to green to deliver RGB.

We're getting an OTA and QAM tuners builtin as well as web OS4 and a decent 2-channel audio system.

I was able to get the USA price down to $5,999.00 USD.

LG launched last week in South Korea and sales were much stronger than expected.

Sorry, no 3D support for the HU85LA.
