Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by

This projector features a wide color gamut and HDR support with a 1,500,000:1 contrast ratio provides stunning color accuracy, brighter whites, and deeper black levels. An integrated Dolby Digital 2.0 soundbar with two full-range aluminum drivers, two woofers, ported, isolated chambers and 40 watts of power, engineered by NuForce, delivers crisp details with superior dialogue clarity.

Yes it is expensive, but this is fairly new tech that is starting to gain traction. Main benefit of UST's are that they tend to be brighter since the projector sits so close to the wall. Coupled with Ambient Light Rejection (ALR) screen, you can get great daytime viewing with these projectors.

This TV is for folks that want a large screen but not have to contend with TV viewing in a very dark room at all times.

Competitors to this would be the Vava (noisier however, PQ a little bit better on Optoma per avsforum observations)

Another competitor would be the LG HU85LA but its pricey at nearly 6k. It uses triple lasers to emit rather than one. From what I gather only LG and Hisense have this

Projector screen for this would be any ALR UST screen. I got mine direct from manufacturer called XYscreen

in order to project a 120 inch screen, you will need a tv stand that is 30 inches in depth. this was the hardest part of the UST setup. I ended up using a low coffee table

example day time video (looks better in person): https://streamable.com/lxuii3

night time viewing (the color banding is due to the camera, does not show in person)

for that dunkirk scene, the walls were NOT that bright as shown in the video. when the video gets dark around 13 second mark is what the walls actually looked like.

I hate how SD voters thumb down anything that is pricey
It's easier to fit this through the door than a 120" TV
To say "just the brand name got changed" then you would have to say these are IDENTICAL products and rebadged. You can't say SIMILAR. LOL! But these are not identical products. This projector was never $1700. Not sure what the heck you're rambling about.

If the LG HU85LA doesn't start dropping in price I'll be picking this one up soon.

Any worries placing a UST projector on top of a center channel speaker? I have the Klipsch RC-64 III.

I would not place it on top of a speaker. The speaker itself is shielded so magnetic interference should not be a problem but I think that the long term negative impact of constant vibrations will not be good for the projector.

added photo to original post. i place the center channel speaker behind the projector. for a 120 inch screen you will need 15 inches of clearance space behind the projector

the optoma can support 3D (sbs,ou, and frame packing) The LG HU85LA does NOT support 3D.
