If you're comparing them to some of the Chinese manufacturers, there are a few things you are getting. Better support, a three year warranty, and overall better picture quality.
While Xiaomi are roughly 2/3rds the price, what's the warranty on it? I think they had a UST 1080p version for the US but for the 4k version you have to buy from China and see off brand seller with maybe a thirty day warranty. Lower lumens, poor color quality (based off of reviews).
If I bought the Xiaomi 4k version and it died after six months I'm pretty positive that there would be no easy way to get a replacement. At best you might have to ship to China and pay for shipping both ways. Input lag isn't much better on the Xiaomi either and I'm more optimistic about Optoma improving it via a firmware.
There's always something better around the corner and there always will be. Outside the Epson LS500 (early 2020, if it doesn't get pushed back), there aren't any other competing UST's coming out soon. The model for Europe is brighter but you pay for it. Sure, there will be a bunch of stuff anounced in January/February, but so was the P1 and LG at the beginning of the year. The LG is superior in every way. Two laser, no colors wheel, lower distance to where the bottom of the image is but you certainly pay for it.
