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

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
How much did you pay? Was it just delivered recently?

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?!"
I see trash can with lid opened laugh out loud

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
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.

Hmmm... This or the 65" LG C9... Tough call. How close can this get in image quality to the OLED? I know screen size matters which is why that's a tough decision.

If you are setting up a home theater in the basement I would go for this. For livingroom go for oled.

Image quality is better on OLED, Projector has good SDR performance, but it is mismatched for the new 4K HDR discs, these new discs are strictly mastered for TVs in mind, not projectors.

With tone mapping it'll still look OK, but you lose alot of shadow and highlight detail, because the projector simply doesn't have the ansi-contrast

I'll never understand why people think projectors are worth it. RIGHT NOW, A FEW ROWS ABOVE THIS DEAL, for an extremely similar price as this projector you can get a true 4k 80" tv.

And i PROMISE wall mounting it is a gigantic joke.
That would work if you are okay with 80" but I'd suspect most people with a home theater want larger. Plus, the look and feel of the room isn't the same with a TV but that might just be because of the screen size difference.

My designated room is pretty big so 80" wouldn't do it.

I wish it did 3D.
Really? Curious as to why. My TV does 3D and personally I couldn't give a shit.

I'm gonna pass on this pixel shifty 4k stuff. I'd rather have a great 1080p projector than a whatever not really 4k one. I can't tell the difference in a movie past 12 feet anyway between 1080p and 4k.

Some people are die hard about their 3D. I also do not get it. Everyone knows 4D is where the real action is! /s
