I bought this projector from Costco a few months ago and love it. Although Technically not native 4K, it DOES achieve 4K resolution through pixel shifting. It works very well.

Native vs pixel shifting is very different.

Native is very sharp , especially in terms of textures.

Pixel shifted, it's sharper than 1080p would be, but (UP CLOSE) it looks nothing like native 4K, no contest.

Pixel shifted looks Smear-ed.. not bad, but smeared.

However, having said that, will you see a huge difference at 10 feet. Heck no, you can barely see a difference between 1080p and 4k at that distance, Even on a giant screen.

It has a 0.47" 1920x1080 DMD employing XPR to achieve 4K. So not native 4K.

any feedback from people who had an epson or equivalent non-4k non-laser projector as to whether it is worth moving to laser yet ? especially if you don't have an issue with the mounting location being 10-15 feet back? just wondering if laser is really that better.

also worried about laser being mounted 10-15 feet back and if people look into the projector/laser accidentally (kids especially) - is that a concern?

Lifetime and total brightness are the big plus on laser. The laser is dispersed around the image not a solid beam like a laser pointer is. this is rated at 150" screen at like 14ft back and 100" screen at 10ft back

This is a good deal for 1600$. I purchased earlier from Costco and returned due to the price. Overall it's a good laser projector.

While it is true that it doesn't have 3840 x 2160 micro mirrors, with the way DLP works, a multi-color image is produced in the same way, as it isn't projecting more than a single color at a time either. The resulting image is very close in quality and for much lower cost

Black levels are more important in a projector IMO. Epson 5040ub refurbished at $1150 is a better buy

hey - i bought that VAVA one that's on IGG - and it's pretty freaking sweet. the brightness is there for sure. and never needing a bulb is also great. It's a lot more money than this guy, but I think it's worth it. UST is king... allows you to hide the thing and not even know where it's coming from

Every time I see one of projectors come up on here, I see the photo and think "Wow, that's an expensive wine gift box. Oh wait... that's a projector?!"
