UST vs Standard Throw

Which is better if you could go either route?

I've used standard from about 9 from my wall ceiling mounted for the last 5 years or so. But I could be able to do an UST as well. I just care about which has the potential to give me a better picture.

Anyone actually tried doing a shootout between 2 comparable projectors?

Thoughts please anyone?

Thanks.

UST projectors should be used only if there is no room for a regular throw/short throw.

You can't generalize "which projector is better" because there are different models for both types with varying degrees of performance. USTs are more expensive than regular throws that offer the same performance. USTs are generally restricted to up to 120" diagonal.


So it depends on the room.

What is the color of the walls?

Any ambient light?

Room length?

Seating distance?

Source? Disc or streaming?

4K or 1080p?

Any gaming? If yes what kind?

Budget?
