Asking as I find it interesting to understand the negatives. I currently have a TK800 which I use for gaming and movies. For what it is, I'm fairly satisified with the performance. Certainly I've never had any issues with colour, so to me it sounds like either there was an issue or you're exaggerating?
The problem is the Epson simply gave me all three
The UHD50x is a single chip DLP projector whereas the Epson is a 3LCD so DLP people are going to give you lip about motion blur and other anti 3 chip stuff
Then they won't tell you that there's 3 chip DLP
Which is where I draw my line. Why don't we compete a 1LCD and a 1DLP and that's probably a more fair game. Make the LCD have a color wheel to get its color
You are also not being told that this unit (UHD50x) has RGBWRGBW type wheel which makes color accuracy even worse since it includes two white segments to boost total lumen output.
Ok so color accuracy is gone... What about pixel response?
I found that maybe more even but still feel like epson had the advantage.
I would notice "twinkling" with the UHD50x almost like the mirrors would vibrate a little bit. Not a wall induced artifact either, it seemed to be related to contrast levels.
I also noticed heat warping on the upper left of my image which was sometimes disruptive. I complained about the light leakage and Opto boys said it was normal for DLP but... then again the heat leakage disrupted the image. You'd need to literally 3d print a light snorkel for this thing
Also, let's not talk about the last couple of days and people also commenting on gaming mode's disruption of PQ
Turns out gaming mode turns the image to 1080P so all the advertised low lag stuff is 1080p. Even a 4k signal if you engaged the game mode it downgraded the image quality. Took pics man, was upset. The lag was worse if you turned it off. Felt like 50ms. I don't have lag equipment but if you didn't have the game mode on, it's probably similar to your current setup.
I saw others start talking about this and IMO I put an image in 4k and even bought a new gaming rig with an NVIDIA 2070 super in it just to make sure I wasn't crazy.
I tested everything and was just not impressed.
It hurt my hopes for DLP technology and I've been a big fan since TI introduced pixel shifting.
I'd say hold on to that TK800 because I read/see it's a good machine from a lot of people.
