ok the native resolution, but there is more difference as sharpness?
why is better uhd65? dont have 3D...then the reason is in?
many thanks for your help
The UHD65 has a larger 1.6x zoom lens and it uses the .66in 4K XPR DMD, that has better resolution than the .47in DMD in the UHD51A. Having said that there probably isn't that much difference between them, when viewed at the same image size, but if you want that extra level of performance, it will cost considerably more.
sharpness ok, i think that is a little better on uhd65
There are lots of published reviews on both of these projectors.
Contrast and blacks will slightly favour the UHD65, noise levels are very similar, but also slightly favour the UHD65. The bottom line is that to get that little bit of extra performance, you have to pay a premium.
have any of you had both and can you tell me if it's worth it? or are they very similar?
I have a UHD50, which is very similar in terms of image quality to the UHD51A. If someone offered to trade me a UHD65 for my UHD50, I would certainly do it. I am not certain that I would have paid the premium for a UHD65.
I went through the same process when trying to decide which projector to get. It was either going to be the udh51 or the 65. I bit the bullet and went with the 65 since it had a bigger chip and better blacks. Another consideration for me was the light border you get with the 51 over the 65. My screen has a felt lining but I did not want to have to mess with making sure it is always lined up perfectly. I also had to make the decision to give up on 3D since my last projector had it. I do not regret giving it up. The udh65 is an awesome projector. I am glad I made the extra investment. I did see some reviews comparing the 65 to other projectors, that also helped me bite the bullet and go ahead and spend the extra money.
therefore you didn't make direct comparisons, did you?
does anyone know the brightness, black and contrast values of these two excellent vpr? real values
I don't know why you're concerned about blacks. These projectors have poor contrast and I assume it will be placed in a non treated room. So black level at least should be very similar.
In terms of sharpness, it depends how big the screen is, how far away the seating position, is, source, and other things. Personally I would not spend 1000$ for these differences. The UHD51 is sharp enough.
You are correct, I did not have both of them in house to compare them. I did not want to spend the money for both to compare them side by side or knowingly want to buy both knowing I was going to send one back. I’m sure I would have been happy with the uhd51a but in the back of my mind, I would have wondered if I would have been happier investing a little more money initially instead of spending less money for something that ‘might’ be as good. That’s my mindset. After reading as many reviews as I could, I just bit the bullet and got the 65.
