For the tariff it is a hit or a miss now that Trump has changed the cost of importing from China.
What I like about Bang good is that they have an option to remove their logo from the order. So it is less likely it will be inspected at the border and taxed.

My previous projector was ordered before the import changes so I paid nothing.

If it helps this is the screen I am using that is 150" on my Xiaomi UST Laser projector (first gen white).

It works very well and out of all the samples I got from multiple vendors it actually had the best colors/blacks.

I am not saying this is the best screen it is just the best for my setup.

If you dont mind, which other samples have you had? Is this one even better than the PET Crystal screens that the XY screen guys are selling?

Needed a 150 inch screen as well...

I got all the samples that Elite, XY and one more I forget the name right now.
I do not believe the PET was available at the time because I did this last year.

Honestly unless you have a ton of light in your room it wont really matter what you pick but I do recommend you buy some samples.
What worked best for me does not mean it will for you. Also I had my family also chime in on what looked best for them because there where samples I liked but they did not and vice versa.

So it really changes from person to person IMHO.

Samples are cheap I paid on average $5.99 per 3 samples and since you will end up using this for a very long time it wont hurt to try them.

Has anyone tried this type of screen from Taobao.. I can't find a translation for this screen type.. Looks good though.. It's a hard surface, not fabric and I noticed the screen reflects light to the ceiling when used with UST Projector..

Yes! Everything was already installed. Finally, I got a new 4K HDMI switch and connect every player (Apple TV 4K, DVR receiver, Nintendo Switch and Fire stick) through it.

Returning to your question, when Apple TV starts, it wakes up also the projector. This is something that doesn't happen with other devices (DVR receiver or Nintendo). After that, you won't have any problem to control the projector, even shutting it down. I'm using a Harmony hub and remote, but you also can use an HTTP/web app remote control for any MIUI tv device (MiReCo app at GitHub).

The only one thing you cannot do with a 3rd remote or webapp is waking up the projector.

You only have to ways to turn it on:
1. Using the original projector's remote
2. Through CEC "ON" command via HDMI

I have a Harmony hub activity that includes an Apple TV 4K connected to projector's HDMI input3 through an HDMI switch and it always turns on the projector. Ideally, Harmony activity turns everything on and, for sure, it works perfectly, but you must know that the Harmony projector's ON command isn't working, and projector only wakes up due to apple tv.

Hi all,

Regarding HDR technology, do you know what is the HDR compatibility of this projector? HDR10? HDR10+? Dolby Vision? I would test it if I knew how to do it...

Thanks in advance.

Also HLG I think (hope), found in 4K HDR videos on YouTube (like this source). Don't know if the Android media player inside this PJ supports it. It needs to support VP9 v2 codec. For example, nVidia Shield TV doesn't support YouTube HDR, but Fire TV 4K stick does (using Smart YouTube TV app).

Thank you! And will it turn off through CEC as well? In otherwords... does it properly work with a Harmony hub. I hate multiple remotes laying around. =)

How does this compare to the BenQ 4K projectors in terms of image quality?

Can I use this with my silver ticket white 133" screen?

Not sure through CEC, but projector's Turn Off command with Harmony app works perfectly

According to MiReCo page on GitHub, the turn-on command is the only one that cannot be replicated right now. No one knows what it's the BT or IP command that wakes the projector up.

I would say the best option would be a special UST screen, like XYScreen's PET Crystal. For sure you can use any other one, but you will lose a lot of image quality.

Looks good. I'm actually kind of curious as to the black level performance of this projector/screen combo in the dark. With some light I could absolutely live with what I've seen, but what should I expect in a semi light controlled room?

If it helps in my setup I either have zero light or some light depending on my mood. I use blackout curtains so I barely get any light. I do not use an ALR screen and my Xiaomi has less brightness than this model.
Still I had to turn down some of the brightness during night time viewing but during the day with my windows/curtain open it is not a pleasurable experience.

So black levels are pretty good at night? I have black out curtains in my living room as well, but light walls. I don't expect Oled blacks obviously.

I'm like 90% ready to go on this thing. It solves most of the problems I have with a projector set up vs TV, is ahead of the game, and is cheaper. The Chinese UI doesn't matter because it'll be plugged into an ATV/bluray. Has anyone who bought this had a *poor experience with it?

Yes, SilverTicket screens work find with UST projectors.

Do NOT let people who talk about using ALR UST screens convince you otherwise. If you have a decent room with good light control, then spending money on an ALR UST screen is actually a waste of your money.

A really good home theater space actually calls for a white screen, not an ALR screen at all times.

I have two OLED TV's and their blacks are unparalleled. If LG made a 150" I would buy it in a heart beat.
This projector is no OLED but it is better than any QLED/LCD/LED I have ever owned.

I have the first gen version of this projector that is severely inferior to this projector (worse colors, less brightness and 1080p) and I love it.

I have ordered this projector and it should arrive on the 26th. It is SO HARD waiting for it lol since this is my birthday present for myself...

PS: I ordered my first projector from ******** and their support sucks but the item arrived just fine. They are never the cheapest but at least they wont rip you off.

This time I ordered from banggood and they are severely cheaper than everybody else. With shipping I spent $2074.91 and if you need details look at this thread where I posted the coupon I used etc: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/122-g...l#post58128658

Thanks for the reply, and that's good news. That link is also the best price I've seen on it. I'm in the states, didn't someone mention a 110v version being available somewhere or just get an adaptor and not even worry about it?

Couple of questions

1. How far below the screen does the unit sit? Does this vertical distance change when changing the horizontal distance?

2. I have a Silver Ticket in a completely dark 9.5' x 14' room. I've been considering upgrading from the BenQ 1070 to the 3550... Would the Xiaomi be a better choice / picture? One thing that would be nice is not having the fan noise directly overhead.

Thx for the answer. Does it also shut down, when you shut down your aptv4k? Did you have to install that english version, or was it already there? And have you considered buying an AVR which have a 4k hdmi switch built in, like the AVR-X2500H Surround receiver? How do you get sound out?

1. I know there is a page from the manual that states distances depending on size etc. Honestly the information regarding height for the 150" that I use feel wrong but I never actually measured it. This is how I use my first gen Xiaomi and this newer model should work the same (I will verify once mine arrives in 4 weeks).

2.a) In a completely dark room a silver ticket screen wont be an issue. Where you would have issues is if you had a screen that rejects light from the the side/below/above. Mainly because your projector will project the image/light from the bottom of the screen and you don't want that to be rejected.

b) After using a laser projector I refuse to go back to a normal one. No having to deal with heat up/cool down periods and replacing lamps is huge and I personally will never go back to that. As for the colors I never owned the BenQ 3550 so I cannot answer that question.

Reciever: DENON AVR-X7200WA using 7.2.4 with two center speakers (one behind the screen and one below it).
Amplifier: Emotiva XPA-5 Gen1
Projector: Xiaomi UST Laser Projector 4k (2019 edition).
