There is only one on the market, the Optoma HD27HDR. All the others use some form of pixel shift. Why do you want a 1080p projector that will accept a HDR signal when in reality no projector can actually display HDR? You can buy a HDMI 1.4 to HDMI 2.0 converter and any old 1080p projector can accept a HDR signal.

I would like a 1080p HDR projector for the increased color range, as I don't want to buy a 4k HDR projector till laser projectors aremoremain stream.
From my experience 1080p HDR is > than 4k non-hdr. I already own an Epson 5020 and I was just looking for something to tide me over for a couple of years that cost <$10000.

Most of the 4K DLP's can't do WCG either. The BenQ 3550/5550 are one of the few exceptions. The Epson 4000/4010/4050/5040/5050 also have a WCG color filter but they are all over $1k. I assume that's a typo with the $10,000 and you meant $1000 or else your in the wrong thread. Their are defiantly no 1080p projectors that can do WCG. Look for a refurbed 5040 as it's close to your price range has 1/2 4K eshift and a WCG filter.

Look into the HDFury Diva. It's basically a glorified HDMI splitter that can accept a 4k HDR signal and tone map it to 1080p SDR. It can be used with any projector you want. I just bought one for my PX800HD and it does a very acceptable job of tone mapping 4k sources and looks just as good, if not better, than the native 4k picture from my TCL P605 and R615 TVs. HDFury's support has been consistent and they have been releasing firmware updates regularly with new tone mapping profiles.

Viewsonic PX800HD | 100” Snowhite UST Screen | Pioneer Elite LX-503 | HDFury Diva | 7.2.4 Surround | Sony Core Series LCR + Atmos | Cambridge Min 12 Side Surrounds | Monoprice Rear Atmos Surrounds | Bic V1020 x2
