LG has finally announced US pricing and availability for its 2022 CineBeam projectors. The series consists of 2 ultra-short-throw DLP units rated to cast a 4K UHD window of 120 inches in size from less than 20 centimeters (cm) from a wall. They also feature up-to-3,700 lumen brightness, HDMI with eARC and integrated 40W speakers.

LG has now officially unleashed its latest CineBeam projectors through its United States channels. They include the HU915QE, now joined by a HU915QB variant. This, however, is where LG's pricing choices get a little weird.

The HU915QB has nearly the exact same specs as the other new CineBeam unit: it is rated to throw "stunningly sharp" image of between 90 and 120 inches in size at a distance of 5.6 to 18.3cm (or a throw ratio of 0.19) using "2nd-gen" 3-channel laser tech with HDR Dynamic Tone Mapping, Adaptive Contrast and the same advanced Digital Keystone Correction.

The 2 projectors also have the same complement of ports, which include 1 of 3 HDMI ports with the 2.1 standard. However, the HU915QB has been priced at US$6,499, whereas the HU915QE is US$5,999, a difference that seems to be mostly based on the former's black finish to its "stylish" fabric exterior, whereas the latter is stuck with a beige-ish and off-white combo. 

More puzzlingly, the HU915QE is rated for a max brightness of 3,700 ANSI lumens to the HU915QB's 3,000 (yet they are still rated for the same 350W/<0.5W active/standby power-consumption specs).

This might be why the apparently more economical HU915QE is unfortunately out of stock on LG.com at the moment. Saying that, it is available on Amazon right now, though.
