Just realized I need exact throw ratio of 1.76. Willing to spend $3.5k for a used model for this upgrade. Looking at the Sony 295 ES or Optoma UHZ65. Looking for better contrast and brighter highlights for better hdr. What do you think? I'm afraid the ht2550 already does such a good job I won't tell much of a difference.

Forget the Sony, it's HDR capabilities are partially handicapped and it's not very bright (which is going to handicap HDR in itself).
You would also 'possibly' be taking a sharpness hit with the Sony compared to the JVC or Optoma.
The Sony is more hit or miss on convergence and lens issues (russian roulette), even the newer Sonys.

For HDR, the JVC's have the most expanded DCI-P3 coverage, but I think there is a filter you can buy for the UHZ-65 to gain more coverage.
I'm not sure how much difference coverage % makes in real world viewing, the UHZ 65 has brighter torch modes but way more inaccurate color.

A used or B-Stock JVC RS-540(x790) is going to be the best overall for picture quality. I think the native contrast gain of the JVC would be way more interesting than the HDR capability.
You'll need some 3rd party tone mapping stuf to go with it, the Panasonic UB820 or MadVR I think is what most are using, but there is some other stuff you can.

Heck, for that price you might ALMOST be able to find a new RS-540, if JVC releases another final batch before being fully discontinued (they might this month supposedly).

It's going to be hard to beat a JVC at that price range, not sure I'd spend that much money on anything else, but the UHZ-65 would be pretty good.

I have a 135” screen and can go bigger and want to try it on with my benq what is the biggest size that this projector can go upto.

I saw a friend use his wall too to bottom and side to side and I was impressed and my 135” at the time looked big is now not looking so big. I have the flexibility to rearrange and was wondering if someone could help with the calculations and the distance needed.

Use the projection calculator on projectorcentral.com or benq.com.

HT2550 or HT3550?

I own a 1080p HT2050, which I project to a 170" screen, and am super happy with it, but I'd like to upgrade to 4k. So, I'm debating between getting a refurb HT2550 now, or save to afford the HT3550 later. I have a dark room, but since I watch 3D contents, I'm afraid the HT3550 2k lumens will make 3D even darker. Thoughts?

Since the advent of 4K I’ve found myself moving away from 3D. It’s a shame that 3D is no longer supported in the UHD spec.

The HT3550 produces a great 3D image with none of the issues that the prior HT2550 and TK800 exhibited. But it isn’t exactly the brightest presentation. IMO, 3D on the HT3550 is best enjoyed in a light controlled room which— to be fair— is really how 3D should be viewed. If you’re trying to push an especially large screen or have a relatively poor room (light colored surfaces or ambient light) then you’ll want to look at the TK800M instead. I haven’t had the good fortune to review a TK800M myself but Scottyroo did and came away impressed. It won’t have the contrast or color quality of the HT3550 in 2D but it will pump out a spectacularly bright picture which is a boon for 3D.

That's good info! I do have a dark room. Ignoring 3D, would you recommend me to save for the HT3550, or get the refurb HT2550 now? (Price difference is huge, and with two kids in college...).

I really like the Ht2550 and I was sad that BenQ isn’t brining it’s successor to the US. That said, it’s clear the Ht3550 is a next generation product. It’s just better in every way. Depends on how much that difference in price is worth to you but if you can swing it I think the HT3550 is one of the best projector values going right now.

Are you sticking with 4K or is 1080p an option?

I own the HT2050 (1080p), which I love. I want to upgrade to 4k, and my options are: Refurb HT2550, or brand-new HT3550 for about 700 dollars more (ouch). Anyway, thanks to you guys' advice, I think I'll save and wait for a HT3550! On a sort of related subject, I just bought an Onkyo "4K" 7.2 receiver because I know I'll need it when I upgrade my projector, and I got it for the ridiculous price of $198.

Good work: I tell people to never overspend on their AVR. Tech changes too quickly and the amp makes far less of an impact in sound quality than the speakers or the room.

Also, I think you’re right to wait for the HT3550.

Again, I love the Ht2550. Would really like to see the new and improved W1720 but we won’t be getting it on these shores. The HT3550 is the upgrade from the HT2050 that, in many ways, the original HT2550 wasn’t. The HT2550 is a great projector and for the price it’s an amazing deal. But it’s not a clear upgrade over the HT2050– a projector that punches way above it’s price— where the Ht3550 IS.

Been looking for info on the HT2550, does anyone know if it'll support ARC? Trying to figure out a way to run audio from the shield back to it so I can get 4k content to the HT2550, but get my lossless audio back to the receiver. Can't passthrough the receiver because it doesnt support 4k or hdr content passthrough, just 1080p.

No arc.

I too have a receiver that won’t pass 4K (it says it will but the unit predates HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 so it’s bandwidth and encryption protocol limited). I didn’t want to buy a new amp so I purchased a Sony X800 that has 2 HDMI outputs- 1 specifically for audio. I know that doesn’t help in your situation. Maybe ask other shield owners in the HTPC section?

BTW guys. I'm about to send my HT2550/W1700 to BenQ for firmware UPDATE.
Do I need to package all the accessories, documents, instructions and stuff the box came with too? or just the Projector and the power cord?
I'm trying to contact them but they seem to got out from work for the day.

Hi guys... My projector's firmware is finally being updated. Thank you for your tips. Meanwhile I've read most your posts.

My set up will be a 120" screen, UHD bluray discs (1080p and 3D included) through a Sony X700 4K player, in a completely ambient and light controlled room. I'm still very much in love with physical media. So.. any configuration tips? For example the thing about HDR some of you guys say is lacking so better to go with SDR, while some others say HDR in this thing really shined since the 1.0.4 firmware update. So what do you recommend for my 120" screen? I of course will ultimately use my own eyes and judgement, but you guys have made great findings and I want to learn the "empiric basics" before anything.

Thanks so much in advance!

Sigh... guess what guys?
Just got my projector back for updating from BenQ after more than a week, and put it to confirm the new firmware and it still says FIRMWARE 1.0.0.

I wanna shoot myself! It made me too anxious just thinking of sending it back AGAIN. I’m afraid it may broke or something. It is not acceptable. What can I do? I requested another option but Service is now closed for the day and have to wait until tomorrow. I made sure everyone at BenQ learned I was asking for the 1.0.5 update... I even let a written paper alongside the projector inside the box specifying this.

WTH happened???

Could it be that my Projector has a march 2019 fabrication date? I dont know but its so frustrating.

Something seems off. If your projector was manufactured in March of this year it wouldn't come with 1.00. Mine was made around summer of 2018 and it came with 1.03

I thought of that but in BenQ using the number of my projector they confirmed it was manufactured in march, yet it came up with the 1.0.0 firmware.

Any updates on the menu after firmware 1.0.0 that I can compare mine with?

For example, I haven’t had any problem with 3D as many report. Also it includes the HDR brightness from -2 to 2... although I think that may have been there since the beginning right?

Yikes...this better not happen to me. I just shipped mine off to Benq yesterday for a firmware update. My projector was manufactured in 04/2018 and came with 1.03.

I don't think this will happen to you. Mine was manufactured on April 20 2019 based on it's serial number (I was informed by BenQ)... barely 2 months ago. Mine doesn't even come with a lens cover, Not even mentioned on the manual it came with. And to this moment I've not found any issue with the 3D, it detects it automatically and haven't had any sync issues. I don't know but it's weird, yet my Projector has been great.

No lens cap? I feel like this should always be included...mine came with one.
So what exactly changed from one year to the next? I wonder if there was internal hardware revisions made which could also explain the firmware discrepancy.

Yeah I thought it was an error about the lens cap, but then I checked the manual from the original batch where it mentioned the cap in several instances and compared to mine. My manual doesn't mention the cap in any of those instances, wether be accessories, or safety recommendations, nor drawings, nothing, so I concluded it doesn't suppose to come with it this time.

Any updates on the menu after firmware 1.0.0 that I can compare mine with?

For example, I haven’t had any problem with 3D as many report. Also it includes the HDR brightness from -2 to 2... although I think that may have been there since the beginning right?
Did it fix the SBS & O/U in 3D? Also you get HLG & in the info bar at upper left corner it tells you if the show (movie) is in HDR. Its some of the ways you tell if it was upgraded.

its just strange that owner would get a their projector back with the same firmware version... Like why would Benq pay for shipping if the firmware was the correct one on his projector to start. I assume BenQ would have a database of some sort that has serial number and firmware info.

Now if 1.0 is now considered "up-to-date" for 2019 manufactured projectors then there must have been some kind of hardware update right?
