BenQ HT4550i 4K HDR LED Projector

The BenQ HT4550i 4K HDR LED Home Theater Projector is a current top pick for its outstanding factory calibration, wide color palette, and bright imagery. The HT4550i's robust LED light engine claims an impressive 20000 hours of use in its brightest mode and up to 30000 hours in eco mode. Horizontal and vertical lens shift with generous zoom adds flexibility to the projector's placement. The HT4550i supports 4K60 and 1080p240 HDMI input with auto low latency mode (ALLM) for responsive console and PC gaming. I appreciate the HT4550i's 100% DCI-P3 color coverage, support for HDR10/HDR10+, and comprehensive calibration controls that can further refine the HT4550i's picture to reference levels. This Android-based projector also integrates Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi, including AirPlay and Google Cast support.

The Optoma UHD50X 4K UHD Home Theater Projector surprised us with pleasing, accurate imagery right out of the box thanks to decent factory calibration. This DLP-based projector can deliver DCI-P3 color when enjoying HDR10 (or HLG) content making it a good match for popular disc-based, satellite/cable subscription, and streaming content options. The UHD50X minimizes input latency for gamers while allowing for 1080p input up to 240Hz. The UHD50's lens package includes vertical lens shift, but not horizontal - center it nicely with the middle of a screen for best results.
