. Guess I will contact OPTOMA today and make them aware and see what they say.
Was able to finally do some decent testing last night. I had the Viewsonic 747 before this and the colors, depth, and pop on this are waaaaaay better. I do feel though that for some reason I cannot seem to get the pq quite as sharp as far as actual sharpness, especially on faces in movies as I had with the 747, I havent messed with settings too much though. The zoomed in on a face scene is highly detailed, its on regular scenes where camera wasnt zoomed in on a face shot. Sorta seems little blurry/blend in like without fine details being brought out on the face. A huge advantage for this projector over all other Pixel shifting 4kers is the ability to download firmware updates yourself. I updated through wifi and it was simple and fast. I have not updated the LAN yet though. I have not tested any 3D yet. As far as gaming goes, XBOX ONE X looks and plays amazing on this. The lag even with motion processing still on low did not bother me at all except on Pinball FX3, I had to turn motion processing off to make that playable but once I did never noticed anymore lag and it did not affect my ability to play.
Both the units I received from Amazon were in plain cardboard boxes with a Optoma Logo and Optoma Logo'ed Tape.
Those warranty stickers are a bit weak though. Not sure why they would pick such a small round sticker. The ones on both the units I got were thankfully ok though.
I do find that the Firmware Update Process is both good and odd. It was very easy to update the main firmware over the internet, but find it odd that the LAN has to be downloaded and done through a USB Stick. Thankfully my replacement unit had both firmware's up to date.

How to make it work with RGB?
- 10 bit 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 does not work. Windows shows 10bit 4:2:0 but projector displays in options as 8 bit ;-(
- 8 bit 4:2:2, 4:4:4 and 4:2:0 works only.
It looks like projector have issues with RGB signal and does not work 4kUHD60 10bit ;-(
I was wondering about that Greenish Issue with one of the Display modes, (Bright). I got that with both units I tested. I was not sure if it was the projector itself or the FireTV Cube I am using. It seems to only happen on the Bright mode. Not sure if that is because of HDR though.
Anyways... That Greenish issue happens to me as well but oddly only for Bright mode. I had to switch the EDID for the HDMI to 1.4 instead of the normal 2.0 to make it go away, but that drops it down to 1080p.
I was also wondering about the HDR mode in general. The FireTV Cube says that it supports HDR but the regular HDR display mode is grayed out. All I get is HDR Sim. I am not sure if I am just not picking the right HDR Content or not using the right App in the FireTV or if it is just a hardware issue like either the FireTV Cube itself or the HDMI cable I am using. I am using the HDMI cable that came with the Projector. I'd think the one that came with the Projector would support HDR but who knows. I do plan to get a better HDMI cable as I need a longer one.
All I have is this FireTv right now as I am still shopping around for a 4K Bluray Player. So it may be a while before I can my test out my 4K HDR Blurays to compare it to what I am seeing with the FireTV Cube. Hopefully I can figure it out at some point. :P
So far I am liking this projector. The picture quality a amazing. I can't really compare it to other projectors as this is my first one, but so far I love it.
I am glad that I replaced the first one I got though. The Alexa USB Port was loose/unconnected but on this replacement it is nice and tight. The setup for the Alexa Smart Home feature worked great this time.
I mounted the projector to the ceiling last night. Now I just need to select a good screen for it. I am looking to get a Motorized screen as it will drop from this high ledge I have in my living room. Looking to maybe even installing it inside that ledge so that it is hidden when not in use. Slowly but surly I get everything setup.
