I think you should go for VAVA 4K short throw in that case, I bought that last week for 1949$ and it's really amazing.
Where did you buy from? I see the price for VAVA 4K around $2800

I have a ht3050 1080p, how much of an upgrade is this? Is it native 4k or pixel shifting?

Quote from gadgetman2k :
I don't want to spark any flame wars, but I'll take a bite at your questions.

1) You're right that the darkened room is the initial critical factor for many projectors. The comparison vs lcd/led will depend on a few environmental factors, including light control, screen material, and both projection and viewing distance. Viewing position can also come into play as the reflective angles of the screen and projector need to be aligned correctly. If setup correctly, and viewed in a properly light controlled environment, IMHO you can produce the same level of detail from a projector or fixed panel display. But don't underestimate the impact on black levels of light control. Even with a darkened room and cheating via light absorbing borders (like black felt) surrounding the screen, small amounts of ambient light can really impact a projected image. On the other hand, you can't reproduce larger image sizes for anywhere near the cost of a projector, and the visceral impact of that large image (or a larger group viewing space) is a factor to consider as well. For what its worth, I love projectors, but when the price on ~106" panel with good quality and performance drops near $2k I'll buy that in a heartbeat. So far none exist, and thus I'm a projector guy.

2) This answer largely depends on your screen, your wall finish, and the projector (in that order). IMO that can only be answered by trial and error. Note that you can address it by adding DIY panels to the "risk areas" if needed.

Basis: I've used a series of projectors as my primary display for household viewing in an open-layout living room for the past 20 years. All front projection, all at ~106" diagonal, various screen materials and various types of projectors ranging from $500-$3200.
thanks for the feedback. Im early in the home theater process right now and just want to see what the best options are. Lucky for me i have a small room that i plan on converting so that should help with expenses. Right now 85 inch tvs are fairly cheap but like you i want something in the 100-110 range which is not cheap, hence the inquiry into projectors.

Its an upgrade no matter how you look at it, just in general image will look sharper and have more pop. Hard to quantify but definitely a noticeable difference. My Epson 3100 which has an amazing image and can rival most medium end to high end 1080p projectors, still is out shined by some budget $1000-$1500 4k projectors, but not enough yet for me to bite the bullet. I am waiting for a 4k with 3-D with extremely low input lag to make an appearance, currently I dont care about whether its pixel shifting or native, but I do care what chip they have doing the processing as that will make the difference in the pixel shifting quality.

You will not find a native 4k projector under $4/5000 currently, so if you see any projector for under $4k its always using a degree of pixel shifting.

That's what I am thinking but since I'm not even at half life on my current bulb, I'll hold out until the it reaches end of life and see where the 4k market is at. Thanks for the reply.

If your into 3-D as mentioned earlier the 850 version is a step up but gives a significant pop to 3-D, outside of that nope you really wont find any projector that will give you a significant difference for an extra $500. The 850 normally is around $1500 but has been on sale for a few hundred less if you want to wait.



When it comes to quality there are projectors that are comparable to OLED, but they are extremely expensive, but yes they do exist. As for in a light controlled room you can get pretty close, and the size of the screen clearly overshadows and provides a more impressive image compared to a 70"/80" TV. My older 1080p projector 120" screen is more impressive than any of my friends 60"-70" 4K LED/OLED setups. I always get the wow comments when I play high end HD content, waiting patently for a very solid 4K projector that suits all my needs, probably sometime next year.

Light bleed is not very common anymore as the lens themselves are extremely elegant compared to the old large bulky lenses that older projectors used to use. So for the most part its a problem that really does not exist anymore, at max you will get a light border of only a few inches, if any with some projectors. You can literally have it right against a wall surrounded on all sides and it should not be a problem. Having a proper screen also helps make problems like that obsolete.
How about optoma uhd50x for 400 more?. I seen them for 1399

The vava is not true 4k. It's 1080 pretending to be 4k

Welcome, yeah if your not in a rush like me we can afford to wait for a better deal or a steal of a deal. I got my 3100 which has the image quality of the 3700 ($1500) for under $600 in late 2018 so I pretty much stole it at that price :-).

Poor HDR and color reproduction cause of high light output on this, but its made more for gaming and it does gaming extremely well! It still has great image quality but last I checked the Benq TK850 would be better, unless your main goal is gaming then the UHD50X is the way to go.

Quote from CoolDealFinder :

No it does not, it does offer automatic vertical keystone correction, but as always you want to not use it if you can avoid it. Anytime keystone correction happens it hampers overall performance slightly.

Quote from dealbreaker15 :

Image quality wise I would say mostly identical, but I would give a slight edge to the BenQ. The BenQ offers both HDR and HLG with 96% REC 709 out of the box. More importantly the BenQ does 3-D the Viewsonic does not. Also the input lag is a bit higher on the Viewsonic, we are talking about 3-5ms difference so not much but every little bit helps when gaming. Zoom lens is also slightly different 1.1 vs 1.2 so a slight placement difference but not much.

I got this in July for outdoor movie nights. It was awesome, especially 3D movies. Our screen was 9'x12'. I was surprised I could walk up to the screen and not see pixels.
