For those wondering, why is this price so good? The color wheel on this projector is more suited to office type material and not movies. It will still give you a good sharp clear picture no matter what you display, but the color reproduction cannot touch projectors suited for movies.

Welcome, the color wheel is made to make white pop, everything else will be mute and not vibrant.

The 727 version is the movie oriented projector from this line up.

That being said this would be a really good first time buyer projector if you want something versatile or that will be used in room with a lot of natural light. This would not be good replacement or upgrade over a professional movie focused projector.

True, but the 727 requires a really dark room, especial if you need 135" screen.

The 747 will suit the needs of a mildly ambiant lighten room, such as the living room.
Id also recommend a grey screen, if ising in the living room with light. It reduces reflections, and seeing an image on the screen is a really nice feature.

Any thoughts on this versus a lower end 75" 4k like a Vizio E-Series. This would go in my Living Room, which has some light during the day, but we don't watch tons of TV during the day and it is not complete light by any means. We already have a Home Theater Projector setup in a different room without light.

Could one "fix" it with whatever the modern equivalent of the old Sony Chromavue/Dynaclear screen is? I never quite figured out why they discontinued those. I had a ChromaVue briefly, but only long enough to send it back because it was damaged in shipping, and they'd already been discontinued by then so the seller had no replacements.

A gray screen comes in a kit, that you unfold and set up.
They're like $50+, depending on the size that you want.
Cheaper than a pull down. But they are static.
I believe that you want a bright projector to use with them.

I've been ignoring HT for too many years and haven't kept up to date since first upgrading to 1080p, and just changing bulbs since then.
The thing with the ChromaVue or later Dynaclear screens is that they were specifically designed to reject ambient light. It was kind of a cool technology. From my quick test of the ChromaVue many years ago before sending it back, it seemed to work, but now that I think about how the screen was designed, I suspect a projector with a white segment color wheel wouldn't work with it. The screen was designed to reflect R, G, B, light and absorb ambient light, so the light from the white segment might get rejected.
There were also the Black Diamond screens (which I think are still around) that only reflect light shining from the front, and reject ambient light from the sides, top, and bottom, which would probably help in a lighted room as long as the light isn't coming from straight in front of the screen.

I would say go to Projector Central, and do some research, and ask questions, but that can take some time. Though more than likely the px747 will fo on sale again, like it does once a month or so. You should try googling px747 in living room reddit/forum, or in bright room. Also look at previous px747 &727 deals here on SD, to get others opinions.
I mentioned about $50+ or more static gray screen sheets that you hang on a wall.

https://www.amazon.com/Yescom-177-16-Projection-Conference/dp/B00OZLZ9BU/ref=mp_s_a_1_26?keywords=gray+screen+projector&qid=1558384458&s=gateway&sprefix=gray+screen+projec&sr=8-26-spell#aw-udpv3-customer-reviews_feature_div

You can get a cheap, but less attractive 120" white screen for as cheap as $20-30.

https://www.amazon.com/120-Inch-Widescreen-Anti-Crease-Projection/dp/B07DMKZW4G/ref=mp_s_a_1_13?keywords=projector+screen&qid=1558384676&s=gateway&sr=8-13

Nicer framed ones might be a little more. Pull down ones are $100-200, but sometimes on sale. Gray screens dont have pull down, or at least three years ago.

Tvs will always have better contrast, and darks. But projectors give more immersion.
For fast speed games such as competitive online shooters, TV's are more appropriate due to their lower response time. For other games, it doesn't matter much.
Last, projectors have an audible fan that is always running while on.
Also, check out bulb lives, and bulb replacement costs on particular models. This is one of the crux's of projectors.

Thank you! Like I mentioned, I already have a home theater projector setup in a "theater room" so I am pretty knowledgeable on the pros/cons of projectors in general. I have also built my own framed screen. Was more just looking for any insight from people who have compared a lower end 4K in those areas you mentioned like blacks and contrast to this projector. Sometimes with slickdeals people come back to things they have already purchased and someone may have already made similar comparisons.

Seconded. The OEM bulb for my old Sony projector is literally $500 and only lasts around 2,000-3,000 hours, but luckily the projector is old enough and common enough that it's easy to find good quality third-party replacements for less than 1/4 of that.
For the PX747-4k, it would use a RLC-117 bulb that runs $240 with a street price of around $150, and knock-offs for cheaper (have to be careful of quality though). It lasts 4,000 hours in normal mode, or longer in eco mode.

Best Buy has this for the same price this week. I want to know when the 1080P projectors are going to drop down to the $400 price range.
