If you're not affected by RBE and can properly place the projector to fit you're room, I don't see why the ZH403 can't be used for home theater use. Especially when comparing it to other DLP projectors, including the 4K pixel shift projectors. Its best mode, RGB, pumps out 1072 lumens, very similar to the UHZ65's Reference mode which pumps out 1080 lumens. Both share the same light engine and RGBY color wheel.
The ZH403 with its .65" DC3 DLP 1080p chip will have better native contrast than all the DLP 4k projectors. The ZH403's dynamic contrast will also be better than most 4K DLP projectors due its 4x multiplier. It has a full set of CMS controls to achieve the best color performance possible.
The ZH403's input lag of 33ms is better than all of the 4K DLP projectors.
The ZH403, even if it has a plastic lens, has a better brightness uniformity than the BENQ HT3550.
The ZH403 with the same HDR modes as the UHZ65 and by it having the same laser light engine, should have similar performance. Which by reading the UHZ65 thread, is pretty good.
Has anybody compared the UHZ65's HDR performance to BENQ's HDR PRO projectors?
Also if you don't mind a longer throw and want vertical lens shift, there is the ZH406. Which retails for $1600. The only thing it gives up to the latest BENQ TK850 is sharpness.
With Viewsonic's 4K laser projector retailing for $2200 and Optoma releasing these low price HDR capable laser projector, I think the industry is starting to turn away from bulb projectors. We'll see in 2020.
