This is just simply not true. The ht3550 is light years better than the Uhd50. The Uhd50 is fine for an entry level budget 4k but resolution is not the only deciding factor in the quality of a projector. We could spend days going over things that are important or that make a massive difference in your viewing experience. I have owned the px747-4k and now moved on to the Epson 5040. The are both faux 4k projectors and the difference is night and day.

If anyone is truly considering a projector please spend some time and to your research it's easy to be disappointed with projectors if you go in uninformed. Screen, throw distance, 4k vs 1080p, hdr vs non, are you in a light controlled room or a living room, etc. All of these are important decisions that can drastically sway your decision.

I could buy a $10,000 projector if I chose to, but I wouldn't. I'm saying this is a good projector with a lot of features for $799. It is about price versus value here, not saving an extra $500 over 6 months to get something slightly better. You're basically saying someone would have to be poor and stupid to buy this, which shows me you are ill informed.

I've been eyeing the BenQ HT3550. How much better is it than the Optoma UHD50. These 2 projectors are some of the only that will fit in my space on a 150" screen.

After reading these comments [amazon.com], I've decided that the UHD50 isn't worth buying.

The professional reviews say it's great. Doubt you will find anything close to this at $799.

For something you're only going to buy once, unless your budget is stretched to breaking, IMO it's worth spending a few hundred extra to get a better one.

Not everyone has a few hundred extra in their budget. I've seen projectors with a border like this, it's not a big deal. Buy a screen with a black border, or paint your wall and create a black border. Either way it will eliminate the issue.
A 4k projector, even marked down and refurbished is still a relatively high end purchase. If your not financially healthy enough to spend few hundred more for a something that will be significantly better, then you probably should not be making this kind of purchase at all. If it's a matter of being firm and sticking to a budget, I'm sorry but that's stupid. Just rework your budget so you make up the difference over the next 3-6 months. I help clients work through their budgets almost daily, and most are too ridgid/firm, and end up making bad decisions as a result or miss out on good opportunities because they can't be flexible with their discipline.

I personally have been researching and shopping for a projector for quite a while now. I have pulled the trigger yet because I'm not ready, but come black Friday if the BenQ HT3550 drops sufficient I'll be getting that. The improvements it has over the last generation of 4k projectors are very meaningful

Woot has the HD27HDR for $444 factory refurbished. And Best Buy will price match Amazon on a new one with full factory warranty for $579. For the $135 difference I can't decide what way to go.

Everyone has a budget their own thing. I don't think there is another 4k projector under $799 so this is a great price. The HT3550 is still not a "real" 4K projector so if you are wanting something better, that is not it. Additionally if you have to wait for a discount to come up to buy something, maybe you shouldn't buy it.

Not at all, I am saying that this projector, although at a good price, is not a good value in the long run, compared to something like the HT3550. The fact that you think it is only slightly better shows me that you yourself are ill informed. If an $800 budget is set in stone for you, there are plenty of higher end 1080p projectors you could get for that price will outperform the UHD50.

Just upgrade every other year, and sell the old.
For me though, each iteration of mounting that i do, gets worse and worse. So no improvements for me, even though I frequently upgrade.
