This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

For those who had their ordered cancelled by Scam for this Acer which they could no longer get, but weirdly now have in stock, this is still a decent price.

On Box's own site it is just under £1469, but on their Ebay store it's £779.99.

I picked one up from Ebuyer for £788 after my Scam order was cancelled and i'm super happy with it. It's basically a rebadged Optoma UHD51 but with slightly different software and they have the more desirable RGBRGB wheel for cinephiles although still pretty bright.
I would recommend the ND2 filter trick though to get the best out of it (or any projector really!)

Problem with projectors is they can't do decent blacks. This is most evident on the black bars on wide screen films.
If you get a glass ND2 filter that you would usually use on a camera you can attach it to the projector. I got a 77mm one that slips in the plastic lens rim perfectly and I hold it in place with a bit of blue tac.
Due to how our eyes work doing this noticeably reduces the brightness, giving better blacks, but without affecting contrast and in a better way than just fiddling with the settings

More info about it on places like AVforums

Does this have vertical lens shift and keystone correction? I think the Optoma UHD51 does but I can’t find out if this Acer does.

Vertical lens shift but no key stone so same as the UHD51a which this one pretty much is. Both have Alexa and even the inputs on the back are in exactly the same positions
Dont post to northern ireland
I just project onto black to get good blacks.
OK I will be the one to say it, is this real 4k? Really want a projector for my bedroom project, my last one was a few years ago the beautiful benq w1070. Is this a decent upgrade from that? thanks

It's faux k if you will but fully certified and picture quality really is a step up from my Optoma GT1080e
Why not get a 747 from amazon for less? I got one last week and getting very good results. It's v2 so ignore original reviews.

The 747 has an RGBW wheel so gives a brighter picture but not as accurate colour (this does 100% of rec709)
747 only has one 2.0 compatible HDMI port, this has two
This has built in media player and network capabilities so you can cast direct to it and control with either alexa or home
Plus the 747 was only 659 quid a couple of weeks ago but i'd still pay the extra for this...
Which I did cos I posted the 747 deal for 659 but still went for this one

Fair enough.

Do not believe the whole 100% rec 709. (also that's for 1080)

A review of the 747 v2 if Any1 interested.

RGBRGB wheel will cover 100% of Rec709 but obviously down converts for Rec2020 as no projector can do perfect HDR due to the nature of the technology.

I did consider the 747 at £659 as I couldn't get a 757 anymore and it was a good deal but I have a fully blacked out room so don't really need of something that can send out a pic you can happily watch in near daylight like you can the 747 which is perfect for living room use

Interesting I have a 5 year old GT1080 not the e version, that I am still very happy with but mind me asking in what ways this one is better? Is the one advertised good for gaming, is it also short throw?

This one is not short throw.I was filling my 92" screen from about just over a meter away with my 1080e but I have this on the ceiling about 2 and a half away.
For me it was about wanting better picture quality as I use my PC with my projector as well so wanted something I could run games at 1440p or 4k.
I can definitely see a lot better detail with the Acer (and that was even with running my 1080e with a Darblet) and when HDR kicks in it looks fantastic.
Also my screen is a sapphire slow return which due to the nature of short throw showed up every crease and bend. Now with the Acer it's pretty much as perfect as you can expect for a non tab tensioned screen.
