The Optoma UHZ65 Theo model is a modified version of the UHZ65. There is an owner's thread on AVS forum for the Theo. Just another projector for your consideration.

Another 4K DLP release without powered lens controls...
Does anyone know of an upcoming FP to include powered lens controls/lens memory?

The Optoma 4K500 is a 4K DLP projector with HDR and has a motorized lens.

It isn't on my list since it uses a bulb...

But only shows 90% of REC 709 on the color chart they provide.

Yes. Both are bad numbers.

The light path is not sealed? So the model is prone to white clouds when projecting black^^

They recommend cleaning the external filter every 3 months (there is a graphic in the manual showing removing the side vent cover, then vacuuming the filter)
Filter Reminder
Choose this function to show or hide the warning message when the changing filter message is displayed. The
available options include Off, 300hr, 500hr, 800hr, and 1000hr.

Note: Dust filters are only required/supplied in the selected regions with excessive dust.
So I would assume that the light path is sealed, and the dust filter is only there to keep the internals from clogging up with dust that the fan would draw in.

Sadly, the Optoma 4K500 is not a HT projector.
I'm waiting for something similar to what JVC and Sony have as standard on most models.
How hard can it be? Our Sharp Z30K DLP has powered lens controls and lens memory and it's circa 2012...

I'm close to buying a UHZ65. But am still spec'ing other hardware & furniture for a new dedicated H/T room. So, I certainly can delay a UHZ65 purchase; especially if the ZK507 is considered a replacement &/or an upgrade to the UHZ65.

In fact, because the UHZ65 has been available since October, 2017, before buying one, I thought I had better check for a potential heir apparent waiting in the wings. Is the ZK507 or another Optoma U.S. Model pending release, to supersede, or be an upgrade to the UHZ65?

Have you checked out the BENQ 9060? LED’s, sharpest lens currently, 98% extended color. Personally I chose the BENQ over the UHZ65 b/c of zero rainbows.
Really love it.

I'm a big Benq fan. Back in the day, our first front projector was a Benq PE8720. Tack sharp. Beautiful image.
I would jump on the Benq 9060, except for the lack of lens memory.
I even emailed Benq CS to ask if they had any plans to include powered lens controls in a future model?
Sadly, no response...

They will both coexist. The ZK507 is a ProScene product meant for B2B/ProAV applications while the UHZ65 is a home cinema product.

DLP doesn't need sealed light path. Any dust that lands on the DMD is rapidly ejected my the violent movement of the micromirrors.

The uhz65/zk507/lk990 are not designed for home theater use either but people use them in home theater.

The UHZ65 is marketed as a home theater projector. Please send me a picture of the people using the other two as home projectors.

Benq HT9060 is the home version of the LK990

Really love it.
There are always trade-offs. I gravitated to the UHZ65 because of its Laser Light engine and because there are few Lasers especially at the UHZ65's price point.

Our room will NOT be 100% light controlled. Although light will be controlled from windows, there is a stairway adjacent to the room from which, we can't really control ALL of the light seepage from the main floor above.

We plan on using the room/projector primarily (90%) for TV/streaming as opposed to Blu-rays. In this case, the absolute best resolution and contrast (for a given cost) are not the ultimate goals. Having a movie experience (as much as possible) for streaming (Netflix/Prime etc.) under less than ideal conditions, for several hours per day is our goal.

I'm disabled, so, I don't really want to fool with maintenance/troubleshooting. Or given how many hours and the content we plan to use the projector, I didn't want to be concerned with usage hours or light output decline over time. Thus, rightly or wrongly, I concluded for our purposes, a laser seemed more practical than bulbs and hence, the UHZ65. But I definitely welcome comments that contradict my conclusion, or may steer me in the direction of another projector (in or around the UHZ 65's price).

Thanks for that information. It precisely was what I was seeking!!

So as long as the UHZ65 (spec & quality wise) won't be quickly superseded by another Optoma or another Laser based projector, it appears that the UHZ65 may be my first, and given my "sell-by-date", probably my last projector.

Our room will NOT be 100% light controlled. Although light will be controlled from windows, there is a stairway adjacent to the room from which, we can't really control ALL of the light seepage from the main floor above.



We plan on using the room/projector primarily (90%) for TV/streaming as opposed to Blu-rays. In this case, the absolute best resolution and contrast (for a given cost) are not the ultimate goals. Having a movie experience (as much as possible) for streaming (Netflix/Prime etc.) under less than ideal conditions, for several hours per day is our goal.



I'm disabled, so, I don't really want to fool with maintenance/troubleshooting. Or given how many hours and the content we plan to use the projector, I didn't want to be concerned with usage hours or light output decline over time. Thus, rightly or wrongly, I concluded for our purposes, a laser seemed more practical than bulbs and hence, the UHZ65. But I definitely welcome comments that contradict my conclusion, or may steer me in the direction of another projector (in or around the UHZ 65's price).







Thanks for that information. It precisely was what I was seeking!!



So as long as the UHZ65 (spec & quality wise) won't be quickly superseded by another Optoma or another Laser based projector, it appears that the UHZ65 may be my first, and given my "sell-by-date", probably my last projector.
Theo UHZ65 is a modified UHZ65 approved by Optoma. Better performance overall. Since this will be your last projector, maybe treat yourself.

Right now for me it’s a decision between the optoma zk750 and the Christie 4k7-hs. On paper they are nearly identical.

I'd take a closer look at both of them, physically, too

Don't forget, neither come with a lens so you have to include that in the cost, too.

Why would you need a picture of them? That's a little creepy and stalkerish. But if you want to read their post they are conveniently in the LK 990 and LK 970 threads.
