How is this for watching movies and sports compared to their HD142x and HD143x series?

If you saw the rainbow, you may always with DLPs.

I have this projector and I love it. I use it for movies and my PS4 on a 120 in elite screens pull down. It's bright clear and has great color. I don't watch sports or have experience with HD142x though so can't help there.

Benq MH530FHD rated as 3000 lumens - this is more suited to 'living room' environment compared to Benq HT series (less lumens)

I have one of these set up in my living room. It is plenty bright. I try to close the blinds to really help it, but even with a little light it works fine. I wouldn't say it has the best picture ever, but I'm real happy with it at 80". I use it for football and I don't see any issues, but I'm also not that picky.

I used this guide to help me determine between buying this or the popular HT2050A.

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/expl...projectors

The only benefit I see from this over the 2050A is the high lumens, which would help with ambient lighting you cannot control. However, according to the calculator, both models require a very dim room (6 FCs for this model, 4 FCs for 2050A).

This might be a dumb question but I'm going to ask anyway. I have this on my radar to put in my basement. I have a top of the line Samsung 4k led from 2015. Love the picture on that.

I know I'm not comparing apples to apples, but what can I expect for picture quality with this compared to a higher end led

2W built-in speakers, so definitely needs an external speaker...

MH530FHD is a 1080p, not 4K. So I would look at this from the price per inch for the ROI. Once you experience the large projection image, sometimes you won't go back to TV for sports or movie watching or video gaming.

for 100" or 120", you definitely want to hook up with your speaker system in the room or portal speakers outdoor

I thought with 10W speakers you "might" be OK with built in speaker? I mainly want to use the projector for backyard movies, but this one doesn't seem to have Bluetooth either, so one more cable to trip over.
