Review: Benq HT2050A
I’m not going to quote any of that as it would be a wall of text. Haha!
Nothing wrong with staying pat. 1080p isn’t going anywhere and the Ht2050A is an easy recommendation due to it’s performance/price. It’s also my favorite gaming display that I own.
To answer bud: yes, 1080p looks phenomenal on the HT3550. The 4K up conversion works great and the extra pixel fill inherent with the XPR design gives these 4K DLPs a filmic quality I really love.
With last year’s 4K DLPs you got a nice bump in resolution and clarity with HD content but most couldn’t hope to compete with even lower priced projectors (like the Ht2050A) when it came to contrast/blacks. So there was an argument that HD might still look better on an HD projector. The HT3550 can compete with 1080p projectors in this price range on contrast and, thanks to the iris, blacks can actually look better than most 1080p DLPs which lack the iris. I prefer to watch Hd on the HT3550. That said, the meat and potatoes of any 4K DLP is UHD content. 4K streaming looks much better than Hd streaming, 4K gaming is growing by leaps and bounds, and 4K Blu-ray... well it is simply on another level. If you don’t plan to invest in 4K content then it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to upgrade to a 4K projector.
What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...
