Both of these projectors are 1080p x 4 Pixel shifters. The 3550 uses the newest version of the 1080 X4 ti DLP chip while this ViewSonic projector uses the older version. The 3550 also has a dynamic Iris and tone mapping modes to help with HDR performance which is difficult to get right on projectors.

This is misleading as it is not native 4k. They have received certification which allows them to market as "true" 4k but it still uses pixel shifting to achieve that. Not saying it's a bad projector by any means, in fact it has received a lot of positive feedback. Not a huge fan of these marketing schemes though.

The new BenQ 3550 is true 4k retailing at $1500 and getting glowing reviews from users at av forums. I have been following that thread for a while now.

The specs say native 4k on Newegg. Is that right? Isn't this really cheap for native 4k?

Yeah, it's a very cheap 4k, but it is actually 4k. General reviews indicate similar priced 1080p projectors seem like they'd be a better choice in overall PQ. Not an expert though.

It's not "native" 4K. It does pixel shifting to hit 4K. Like 1080x2 basically. Anything native 4K is 3x the price, minimum. I do t have any experience with this unit, but the general consensus is a better 1080 projector will look better than a cheaper 4K pixel shift projector. I've owned a few projectors over the years and run a nice epson now at 1080 and have been waiting for something 4K that makes sense to replace it with, but short of the Sony at around $5k (now can be found a little cheaper, but that's retail) nothing that claims to be 4K is "great"

It's disappointing they call it "true 4K" and list 4K as the native resolution. That's deceptive in my opinion if it's pixel shifting

Isn't pixel shifting something like 1080x4?
