Get the Epson 5050 refurbished w 2 year warranty. A dedicated theatre room will show the BenQs weak contrast. Grey instead of deep blacks. Gaming response will be better on the Epson as well I believe around 25 ms
I got my 5050 from PG but again the 5050 is significantly more expensive than this projector. If you have the budget go for it . Not true 4k but good enough for me. With full zoom I get a 146 inch image from a mere 13 feet. The horizontal and vertical shift is just awesome and perfect for my needs.

I have a dedicated theater room and will be 80% for movies, and 20% gaming. My budget is $1500, would spending $500 more get me more "WOW", or should I just pocket the 500 and get this thing
For a dedicated, light-controlled room, you don't want this projector. The TK800M and TK850M are intended for multi-use rooms with significant ambient light. They had a white segment to the color wheel (RGBW) to increase white lumens, which sacrifices color lumens, color accuracy, and contrast. It's a good projector for a living room, but not for a dedicated theater.

The HT3550 is a much better choice for a dedicated theater. I would definitely think it's worth the extra, and you can get a refurb with a full warranty from benqdirect for $1199. It adds more lens shift and zoom, excellent factory-calibrated color accuracy, a dynamic iris for scene-by-scene dynamic brightness and contrast, and 18GBps HDMI for 4K 60fps HDR. It is a very large improvement for the price difference.

How much of an upgrade from the benq 1075 is this? I have a living room and can somewhat control most of the lights but it's a living room...

Does that mean this projector is good for LCD TV replacement? I'm looking to upgrade my 55inch LCD TV. I was going to get some cheap 82 inch TV on BF but if this one works relatively well under normal lighting, maybe I would get this one..

I bought during the last sale when it was a $600 refurb.

Before that deal came up, I was debating between an 85" LCD or projector. Screen size trumps all other picture quality considerations. I'd fit the largest screen you can into the viewing space with consideration for the viewing distance. If you're very close to the screen, it doesn't need to be so large to have an immersive experience.

I built a 152" screen out of 1x4 lumber and spandex. Probably $100 of materials. I went this direction because I had an alcove of a certain size, and it seemed to make sense for the screen to fill the width and be flush with the alcove. Hanging on a flat wall, I'd be more tempted to buy a pre-built screen.

For $700 total I now have a 152" screen and projector, though it was a lot of time to set up. Fishing cables to my projector was a nightmare and I have 2 "extra" drywall holes I need to patch now from not having figured out exactly where to route cables.

As a minor bonus, this is 3D capable with the purchase of inexpensive 3D glasses.

Quote from mhues :
I thought it was not pixel shift. https://www.projectorcentral.com/BenQ-TK800M.htm "True 4K UHD 8.3M Pixel Resolution"
True 4k means pixel shifting the 8mil + pixels. Native 4k would be an actual 4k panel. You will not pony up for a native 4k projector now or in your near future if this is the price range you want to be in.

People really need to get over this bitter snobby uninformed faux K thing. It's old and shows you don't know what you're talking about.

And actual resolution and the number of pixels pj is throwing is just one aspect of image quality. Actual native 4k projectors have better optics, better image processing and so on to further distance themselves from shifting projectors in this price range. Plus they are quieter, have motorized lens controls, better build quality and so on. The way they throw the pixels on the screen is not the single greatest factor in image quality differences.

If you're a gamer and wanting something with good input lag, recommend looking into the Epson 3800 or Optima UHD50x. Both are very low input lag and have been available for roughly $200 more than this.

This is still a capable unit though, but I wouldn't recommend it for gaming

I am sensitive the rainbow effect in color wheel projectors. Unfortunately all the cheap 4k projectors are DLP/color wheels. I'll stick to 1080P 3LCD for now.

The VAVA is a great projector for the price point, but beware of the lag if you're gaming on it. The lag is about 100ms, which about 2x higher than my personal limit when shopping for projectors.

3000 lumens is nothing. That's basically a 60watt bulb.

You can actually turn down the lumens via settings to suit dark rooms so it's actually a non-issue.

Here's a good video for the review of the product: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L...isMajestic

my 60W equivalent LED bulbs are rated around 800 lumens. But this PJ is probably closer to 1500-2500 lumens depending on the setting you're using.

Who has a better return policy? Adorama or bhphoto? I'd like to try and compare this with a epson 2250 HD projector.
