Nice model, I actually posted it last week for around £140 more and now it's under a grand. So even more of a tempter than before (Have to resist because I like living in the house)

As you'd expect at this price point, it has speakers built in and a 2 year warranty

Once you've had a projector a TV is ****
Edited by moderator: "Edited out swearing" 5th May
I got the UHD550x for this price but on a crazy deal around boxing day

Good price for the 330X

Once you go 4K 120" you can never go back to a TV

and yes I know I know the DLP chip isn't "true 4K" but if the image on the screen is 3840x2160p then what you see is 4K so I don't GAF how the sausage is made, I just want it with a side of mustard

pig is dead at butcher's. I see the pig. He cuts the pig into pieces. I take the pieces and mince them. I mix the pieces with spices. I feed the mix through the sausage maker into casings. I cut the casings into sausages. I cook the sausages and then put them in my mouth. The sausage passes through my gastrointestinal system, until my body has extracted the proteins, fats, and carbohydrates from it, and the remnants are expelled from my body. The remnants pass through the city's waste treatment system, and are then returned to the biosphere. F-Z

This should be moved to deals. You've posted it in freebies.
Oh man, if I hadn't bought an OLED, I'd have been all over this. My old HD projector was perfect for gaming. 100" of glorious screen space.
poor specs for the price, for half price you can get decent full hd projector with better contrast and lumen
The benq w2000 is fab for less money

I've made Christmas sausages as a family tradition for many years

I've learned how to compartmentalise and forget

Why? BECAUSE SAUSAGE

Sounds fun when your put it like that!

agree, it is fab, and it is cheaper, but it's not 4K...

good deal, same price on Amazon (free NDD with prime also). however, while Optoma were first to market with relatively affordable 4K projectors, there are a lot of new 4K projectors now hitting the market around this price point, so i wouldn't be surprised to see this going for £800 in a month.

Only if your room suits.

Like what do you do during the day and sun is shining bright through your windows?

Close the curtains and live like a hermit.

Projectors should be used in conjunction with tvs not as a replacement. Have both. Having just a projector would be stupid.

You can get ones that can make a big picture in a small room
Same price on Amazon. Higher lumens version for a higher price point too.

Very tempted!

I started off with an optima GT720 gaming projector for £150 refurbished from Richer Sounds. It changed my life! As said above, you cannot watch on TV again!

Then I got the upgraded GT1080 for £550 on prime day.. waited especially for that!

Next stop is 4k and three digits is getting there...

The only issue is the GT range are short throws so I can put it 1.5 metres from the wall on the subwoofer.

But I think all the '4k' (not quite) ones are longer throw ratios...

It's throw ratio is around 0.5:1 meaning 0.5m distance gives you 1m display!

This has a throw ratio of around 1.4 to 1 meaning I would get a 3x smaller display for same distance!
Unless you get up close to a 4k projected image in a normal room it's not going to make a massive difference to your viewing pleasure...

i have no idea why people are always saying this. compared to a 4K TV, it's WAY EASIER to see the increased level of detail on a 4K projected screen, because it's way larger...
fyi

it's nothing to do with the res but the quality of the source. 4k sources are much higher in quality than 1080p sources. nothing to do with the actual native res but the res of the media you are using that makes the biggest difference.

not sure what you're saying here, it's actually lot to do with the resolution. "quality" doesn't actually mean anything without a quantifiable metric to back it up. for example, 4K is sharper, and has more colour information because it has 4x the number of pixels as a 1080 image (ie a higher resolution).

the "source" for most 4k content these days is digital film, which is recorded at 4K (ie sampled by an image sensor with 8 million+ pixels, compared to 2 million at 1080). for older content sampled from actual film stock, the "source" would be the same for a 1080 or 4K transfer depending on the sampled resolution.

if your display can't render the same number of pixels as the media, you aren't getting the benefit of a higher quality source because you aren't seeing all of the captured information. 4K is objectively better than 1080, and the bigger the image, the easier it is to see the difference.

fyi[Video]


so watching video footage of 4k at about a quarter size (ie 1080p), probably on a 15 inch 1080p laptop screen is what makes you think 4K at 100+ inches looks the same as 1080p?

thanks for the "FYI" but you haven't exactly blown my mind.

You have missed my point.
1080p streams are akin to dvd in quality.
Whereas 4k streams are akin to blu Ray quality albeit a 1080p blu ray not a 4k one.
So if you have a 1080p screen/projector it streams the 1080p source which is dvd quality. If you have a 4k screen/projector it streams the 4k stream which is akin to a 1080p blu Ray.

So the reason why there is a big jump in quality going from 1080p to 4k is that the quality of the stream is a lot better rather than the actual resolution of the screen.
A fair test would be using 1080p blu Ray on a 1080p screen vs 4k blu Ray on a 4k screen. However 99% of people don't buy blu rays. They stream.

"A quantifiable metric to back it up" - that would be bitrate.

"4K is sharper" - Nope, not if its 480, 720P or 1080P up scaled its not, Just because something is "4K" doesn't mean squat.

Native 4K is better than 1080P obviously as you refer to, but even then, if the bitrate is low then all that goes out the window.

Think Netflix 4K v UltraHD Blu-ray 4k. Still 4K, but the difference in quality is vast.

4K is nothing but a marketing term without bitrate.

and ice cream tastes like dog poo if you put dog poo on it. what's your point?

a 4k display is sharper than a 1080p display, if you play 4k content on it. i play 4K content on my 4K display - IDC if you want to use yours to watch DVDs, the display is still capable of providing better image quality.

look, i commented here because someone said you wouldn't tell the difference between 1080p and 4K in a normal room. if you're trying to prove that to me, don't bother, because you're wrong.

if you're trying to explain what bitrate is, don't bother, because i know, and it's nothing to do with my original comment.
