Since LG launched its previous model, HU715QW, it is still the successful projector currently dominating the market at below $3000.
It is now LG’s first single laser projector to have 4K resolution with HDR compatibility for an affordable price.
This time, LG has launched its new model LG HU915QE, a true 4K UHD projector that promises even better picture quality, a better sound system, and brighter picture quality than its previous model.
But does it deliver on its promise with a significant upgrade? Let’s find out in this LG HU915QE review its advantages and disadvantages.
With this new LG CineBeam HU915QE, it will give a tremendous challenge to its counterpart Samsung SP-LSP9TFAXZA which is right now dominating the market in this price range.

The model is designed in sleek and modern design, and according to my hundreds of projection testing, this is the cleanest ultra-short-throw projector out there right now.
The body is all white, but there is also a choice of black color for those who don’t want to go with white.
On the front of the projector, there is no marking or anything written except the sensor for the remote control.
The setup took less than 5 minutes as I placed the projector on the table, and it was ready to use.
You can also mount it on the ceiling as there are four mounting points to permanently fix the projection system.
We placed the HU915QE at a distance of 2.5 feet from the screen to get the image size of 120 inches. At the top, a small door opens up to adjust the zoom manually with the help of the focus ring.
The LG has kept a minimal connectivity option at the back of the projector there are three HDMI ports, two USB, power, optical digital audio output, an Ethernet LAN port, etc.
The LG has used DLP technology with a triple laser design, providing more excellent image quality with smooth color quality produced on the screen more naturally.
Also, it comes with a native 4k resolution and true resolving power of 8.3 million pixels or 4k pixel grids on the wall.
It covers the solid 90% DCI p3 color space that is way above the single laser RGB and below average compared to other triple lasers’ RGB true 4k projectors.
This model will work perfectly in ambient light conditions in your room even though the blinds are not on the windows due to its 2,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.
With the LG brightness II optimizer feature, this projector automatically adjusts the brightness level according to lighting conditions present in the room.
Also, this model will have a hefty price tag of more than $5999, and still, there is no 3d support by the LG, which I think is a bigger disadvantage for those viewers who like to view 3d content on a bigger screen.
According to sound quality, this model has an in-built 2.2 audio channels with a 40-watt soundbar which sounds good compared to LG’s previous model.
It is always recommended to connect external speakers to your projection system to true cinematic experience in your room with the help of Bluetooth or optical audio output.
The whole projector is controlled by LG magic remote control system, which also has a google assistant voice control and Alexa voice assistant.
You can directly play Netflix, disney+, and Prime with a single touch from the remote control. Also, Apple devices it has an Airplay feature to share or cast anything from apple device to screen.
Now the HU915QE runs on LG’s official operating system, where you can download hundreds of applications or games from their app store.
- Display image size of 100″ inches from just 2.5 feet away.
- True 4k resolution.
- Minimum noise of a fan.
- LG’s latest operating system is easy to use and will eliminate the use of the streaming device.
- The LG brightness II optimizer automatically adjusts the screen’s brightness according to ambient light in the room.
- It is not made for professional gaming.
- The lag time in 4k is above 55ms.

If you are just a type of person like most of us who don’t want to delay their time changing the setting of the projector and you want just plug n play to watch, then this projector can be a great option for you.
