Regarding alternatives, if I didn't get my UHD50 for such a great price and had the room to place the height size of the Epson 4000 cabinet, I think I would choose that over these XPR chips. From reviews, I think I would prefer the wider color gamut and better optics, vs sometimes slightly noticeable better resolution of XPR. It would be great to have the auto lens change for wider movies as well.
Also, not happy about the light border of these projectors. I finally have a nicer looking framed screen up instead of the poster type board I had up for years, and it is pretty much negated by the light border which exceeds it. With the Epson, I would have taken down the screen, removed wall paper, and painted the wall, so I could have wide movies auto displaying with a bigger image.
There is a good review of Epson 4000 vs UHD60 on Projector Central. The Epson to me looks to be the clear winner from that. I think I might be seeing rainbows as well, I need to shift or blink my eyes a bit in fast moving or panning scenes.
But the UHD50 is gorgeous. I have had a lot to figure out. I think some of my initial impressions were possibly not even driving at 4K because I had PC outputs simultaneously going to my W1070 and UHD50, and from what I can tell it may have been driving both outputs to the lowest res.
