Under 10k your best options are the uhz65 and the soon to be announced ht9060, with the latter better for dark home theaters with screens 140" and under. The BenQ is only rated 2200 lumens but since it uses high lumen density rod on the green led to focus etendue better on dmd it is typical of much higher brightness than typical LED. When both are calibrated the UHZ65 falls in the 1600-2000 range depending how you calibrate it, while the benq falls in the ~1500 range (~1250 eco w/ dimming). So the lumens difference actually isnt as large as the specs indicate, about 500 less on benq if you want to use dynamic black dimming.
The uhz65 is much cheaper, though with the benq you get a better lens, better chassis, much more lens shift, 98% p3 coverage insteqd of 87%, and less rbe on the ht9060 with its fast cycling leds vs
uhz65's 2x color wheel. Plus ht9060 supports 3d while uhz65 doesn't.
So for dlp camp if you can afford the ht9060 its essentially the only 4k uhd solid state projector under $10k that has all the blu ray 4k (and 3d 1080p) features with a still quite bright output if not as bright as the uhz65. Seems it will be great for a dark home theater room, but we won't have all the details until its released and tested.tested
On the other hand the uhz65 is a proven great value for its price and can get brighter for rooms with ambient light or bigger screens. Still a great picture even if color, lens, build, and features dont match the ht9060.
