BenQ HT3550 4K Home Theater Projector on Amazon for $1309.92

The last Slickdeal posted was $1400, this is the lowest it's been on Amazon.

The Benefit vs. Cost ratio for a 4k projector upgrade isn't there yet, for me, but this may push some of you over the fence.

Not bad but I agree, 4k isn't worth it quite yet. I actually got a BenQ 4k projector to replace my 1080st, but definitely wasn't worth it for me so I returned it.

Well it depends what you define as native 4k. Pixel shifting is considered faux 4k by most people.

actually, no, it's not.

pixel shifting looks exactly the same as native 4k at viewing distances.

if you sit 2 feet from your screen, maybe you'll run into an issue.

Not in my world. The upgraded HDMI brings no benefit to home theater usage, and as I don't sit 2 feet from my 158" screen the native 4k is not much of a benefit. Not to mention if you are sensitive to rainbows..

I am not commenting on how it looks. I am just commenting on someone claiming this is native 4k. You just confirmed with your statement that pixel shifting is not native 4k.

And I wouldn't say pixel shifting looks exactly like native 4k all the time. Depends on what machine you are looking at. But it is pretty close. I just don't know why people keep calling this a native 4k projector.

I could tell a noticable difference upgrading my w1070 to the HT2550. The 2550's quirks are all worked out in this model from what I've read. Really tempted to upgrade, this should be able to tide me over until variable refresh rate on projectors becomes a thing.
