I own the HU80KA and it's one of the best purchases I've ever made. I've had it for about a year, leave it on all day constantly, still bright and crisp (due it being laser vs traditional lamp). It's use-case is portability, so if you need something you can easily take to your friends/family/outing/backyard/work/etc, get this Smilie

​If you don't need a portable projector, well, look elsewhere Stick Out Tongue
I have the HU80KA and it's awesome. Get an ALR screen which rejects lights coming from different angles. It allows me to use the projector in the daytime in a room where half the walls are windows. It doesn't look great with all windows open but if I close 1/2 of them, it's fine. Look up "carl's place" screens. You can build your own frame with about $25 of wood and a staple gun.

The portability is awesome. I can project onto an outdoor screen and watch movies while floating in the pool. It has a retractable cord which is more convenient than you would think.

One of my best splurges to date.

Any reason to switch from an existing Epson home projector? Especially if I have it mounted about 10 ft back on the ceiling?

Like the idea of laser but will it be an issue if it's mounted ceiling 10 ft away?

Depends which one you guys are talking about, there's 4 projectors in this thread, each serve slightly different purposes.

Example: The HU80KA can't really be compared to any projector because no projector offers what it does.

How's the HU80KA for gaming?
Edit: Seems like the input lag is around 71ms. Good projector for movies or light gaming, but I'll keep waiting.

Yes it will be an issue. Doesn't work far away. Only short throw I believe.

It's not exactly the same - not even close. LG is laser based, and ViewSonic is lamp - huge difference. Laser based ones are pretty much always superior picture wise.

Not the same but isn't the viewsonic one superior (LED lamp replacable with 30k hrs life vs laser non-replacable at 20k hrs life)

How does the HU80KA compare to an Optoma CinemaX P1?

Someone says there's lag on the projector, was hoping to buy ps5 and Xbox X just for my new projector room when they come out.
