Home projectors are having a moment because huge media firms are making it easy to see movies at home weeks after they’re released in theaters.
The LG HF65LA ultra-short-throw projector delivers excellent picture quality and a big “screen” size without the need for a TV. Though expensive, it’s a great solution for small, dimly lit areas.
Purchase via the following links:
- Great range
- Good picture quality
- Very portable
- Very high price

HF65LA is a good projector for the suitable market. It’s a good alternative if you want a smart TV without having to wall mount it or clear a large area for it. If you choose utility and/or adaptability over image quality, search elsewhere. LG’s offering is strong for the price owing to its features.
WEMAX NOVA 4K UHD
A great alternative to the LG HF65LA is the WEMAX Nova 4K UHD Ultra Short Throw Smart Laser Projector – Android TV – HDR10 150″ Projection – UST Laser TV for Movies, Video, Gaming – Voice Command Remote – Projectors with WiFi Bluetooth
- Accurate default SDR color
- High native contrast
- Compact chassis
- Three HDMI inputs
- Game and Monitor modes
- Dark images and banding with HDR
- Limited to Rec.709 color gamut
- No calibration controls
- Confusing menus
- Audible coil whine

Overall, Wemax Nova is a $2,699 4K UST with outstanding native contrast and realistic SDR color. It has some difficulties, especially with HDR. The Wemax Nova 4K UHD Projector does not seem to handle Blu-ray discs very well, but its ultra-short-throw lens, fully integrated Android TV, and image quality for streaming and live video make it a strong choice as a smart TV replacement.
