OK guys I might as well post this here. I'm looking for a new projector and the ones that I'm looking at are the UHD50, the UHD51A and the UHD60. Which one would you recommend? I'm after the best picture quality, black levels, contrast and colours. Is there any significant differences between the UHD50 and 51A and how do they compare to the UHD60. If you could do it all again, which one would you buy now?

You can read reviews of those projectors here:

https://www.projectorcentral.com/Opt...D50-review.htm

https://www.projectorcentral.com/Opt...51A-review.htm

https://www.projectorcentral.com/Opt...D60-review.htm

I think the UHD65 is probably a better bet for colour and contrast rather than the UHD60 and the HT5550 is probably better than the UHD65. The UHD60 is more along the lines of the UHD51ALV/UHD52ALV.

Thanks I've read all those reviews prior to posting here. The reviews are great but they do not directly compare these projectors to each other.

I'm looking at picking up this PJ or the BenQ HT3550. One area i'm a bit confused is if the UHD50 will do 4K60FPS 10bit at 4:2:2. It appears the BenQ will. Is this true? The data sheet clearly says the UHD50 will only do 4K 60FPS 10bit at 4:2:0. Isn't the BenQ and the Optoma both HDMI 2.0 and both should support 4K 60FPS 10 bit 4:2:2? Thanks in advance.

The Optomas are said to be sharper than the Benqs, but the Benqs have a Dynamic Iris.
Per the UHD 65, it only has Dynamic Black, which can work really well for the laser version (UHZ65), but not as well for the lamp version (UHD 65).

Basically, the Optoma UHD 65 black levels might be slightly better than the cheaper DLP's, but not enough so to really even come in as a factor in the purchasing decision.

For black levels to even be a factor with DLP (hence real improvement), you'd need to look at the Optoma UHZ-65 (laser) or the Benq ht9060. Those will have much better black levels than all these other DLP's, but they are kind of expensive, but you can look at refurbs. Otherwise, used JVC or B-stock JVC is where you go for the best black levels. Used JVC's are really great deals with amazing images for movies. Of course there is also the Epsons, which have decent black levels.

A UHD40 review:

http://audiovision.de/optoma-uhd40-test/ (use google translate for your language of choice.)

Overall pretty positive.

I'm not sure if the UHD40 (EU) and UHD50 (NA) are the same. I'm surprised that the UHD40 doesn't have the BD 3D ready firmware that is available for the UHD50.
