Throw ratio is 1.39-2.22; make sure your room has the proper dimensions for your desired screen size.

While this does have the newest TI chip using XPR pixel-shifting (0.66", NOT 0.47", meaning 2 2716 x 1528 mirrors instead of 4 1920 x 1080), the color wheel is regrettably RGBCY, which compromises color accuracy for an advertised lumen increase. I say advertised because the color brightness, once calibrated, does not demonstrably benefit from the addition of the CY segment of the wheel in testing from the major review outlets like projectorcentral.

The BenQ HT3550 mentioned above has the RGBRGB wheel that lends itself much more to light-controlled HT setups and delivers the goods - better colors, higher contrast - over the UHD60 if you are dedicated enough to have one. Plus, it has 3D for those who want it, something you'd find only on the UHD51A(LV). If you want to watch during the day without bothering about ambient light, it does not fit the bill nearly as well as the Optoma. Also, I am not sensitive to RBE, but if you are, the 0.47" chip in the BenQ is reportedly more prone to it than the 0.66" in the Optoma. Lastly, I've been hearing a lot of QC rumblings from AV forums, so some production growing pains might still be a problem. A firmware fix is en route TBD.

In any case, this is a decent deal on a well-received native 4k projector. Just go in with your eyes open. And if you aren't in the immediate market and would prefer options, I'd say hold off for a few months. BenQ is set to release the "high brightness" model of the current HT3550, akin to what the TK800M is to the TK800. It should launch this year (Q3?) at this same price point given what the HT3550 retails for.

EDIT- a few things of note I forgot to mention:
- The UHD60 advertises DCI-P3 conformity, but this is only achieved 100% in one low-brightness Reference mode. In short, the gamut of colors capable of being produced is effectively lesser than the newer 0.47" equipped offerings like the HT3550
- Input lag on the UHD60 is ~50-55ms at best. For most viewers I'd say that's fine, but if you're gaming competitively it might give me pause. 1080p projectors still rule the roost in this regard
- The UHD60 does NOT have a dynamic iris
- 3LCD projectors like Epson's 5XXX line are a whole different ball game. I'd recommend reading the differences for yourself.

Just wait for the HT3550 to go on sale. It blows away all these projectors in the under $1500 category.

yeap...it only matters if you using 4K so dont worry.


Is this projector true 4k or is it a conversion from 1080?? (epson)
Answer: No, it is not a true 4k. It uses a different process to arrive at a near true 4k picture quality.

The Optoma UHD60 and the Epson Home Cinema 4000 are both highly attractive home theater projectors but for different reasons. Though the UHD60 lacks a lot of the features that the HC 4000 has, it has one obvious advantage, which is its ability to resolve finer detail in the 4K picture from a native 4K signal. In addition, it can (when both models are set to their most probable operating modes) achiever deeper blacks in images that are largely black such as title screens, rolling credits, and images of deep space in Star Wars. The UHD60 also has a quieter fan, which is mostly noticeable when they are both in full power mode. The UHD60 has the best onboard audio we've yet found on a home theater projector, in case you want to use it for occasional backyard movie nights. As far as portability goes, neither is designed for portable use, but the UHD60 at 16 lbs is smaller and much easier to move around than the 24 lb Epson 4000. And if you are going to ceiling mount your projector, the UHD60 requires a bit less muscle to get it installed than the larger and heavier HC 4000.

Yeah an Optoma uhd51-a or uhd51-alv be nice. Supposed to be some of the best 3D pj's ever even if the HDR isn't quite as good as the newest upgraded 4k's from BenQ and Epson.

Far more important than 3D is HDR which you absolutely want

The new Epson was just released so worth taking a look, however when looking years ago the Sony image was much better with less noise. Bought a VPL as a result and love it.
