yummy but my hd projector still good
tempted to replace my Benq W1070 but am afraid as this is double in weight and its right about my head when I sleep :-(
Not true 4K but hey I'll take any resolution increase over my current 1080p projector when it dies.
Why not true 4k, all reviews say it is ?

For projection, the most common 4K standard is 4096x2160 resolution, slightly higher than the typical consumer screen standard of 3840x2160 which is what this supports.

Seems odd considering broadcast and UHD blu ray is 3840x2160. The extra pixels will cause the image to stretch and lower the quality or just not use the extra pixels..

Because they use some trickery to create a 4K image from a 2K panel. @FunkiestMonkey
My brother had optoma projector. The fan noise kept going high and low. It wasn't constant so very annoying.
Hope this isn't the same

All the reviews are for the 3600 lumen one which is £500 more. Any idea how good the 2000 lumen one (pictured) is?

Well all commercial 4k tvs are 3840x2160, and thats a great thing, as 4096x2160 resolution gives slight overscan/and extra stretch, so i prefer the consumer 3840x2160.

Yeh 3840x2160 is the best, thats why bluray uhd 4k spec and tv broadcasts went for it, so this projector is 4k in my eyes.

Projection in a cinema is a whole different world to home cinema which is reflected in the price tag (a cinema projector is in the same ballpark as a cheap house). I don't have an issue with a consumer device following consumer standards, 3840x2160 will do.

I’d be happy with either 4K standard, both being a step up from my ageing 1080p epson...just there was a question why this was not true 4K. I thought this might be why as couldn’t see another reason. @tempt mentioned it’s a 2k panel with some cleverness to achieve the 4K resolution - can’t say I understand what this is though?

Oh that. Imagine you overlaid 4 1080p pictures over each other. The first picture is centred, the second is 1/2 a pixel to the side, the second is 1/2 a pixel to the side and 1/2 a pixel down, the final one is 1/2 a pixel down. Suddenly you've created a 4k image from a bunch of lower resolution ones... sort of. The more shifts you do the worse the image compared to a true 4k output but if this model is one of the ones with a ~2.5k DMD so only needs one shift then that's good enough.
