I don't think that projector is designed for home theater use it's actually for large venue commercial think like churches that kind of thing that puts out 7500 lumens

The uhz65/zk507/lk990 are not designed for home theater use either but people use them in home theater.

The UHZ65 is marketed as a home theater projector. Please send me a picture of the people using the other two as home projectors.

Benq HT9060 is the home version of the LK990

Have you checked out the BENQ 9060? LED’s, sharpest lens currently, 98% extended color. Personally I chose the BENQ over the UHZ65 b/c of zero rainbows.
Really love it.
There are always trade-offs. I gravitated to the UHZ65 because of its Laser Light engine and because there are few Lasers especially at the UHZ65's price point.

Our room will NOT be 100% light controlled. Although light will be controlled from windows, there is a stairway adjacent to the room from which, we can't really control ALL of the light seepage from the main floor above.

We plan on using the room/projector primarily (90%) for TV/streaming as opposed to Blu-rays. In this case, the absolute best resolution and contrast (for a given cost) are not the ultimate goals. Having a movie experience (as much as possible) for streaming (Netflix/Prime etc.) under less than ideal conditions, for several hours per day is our goal.

I'm disabled, so, I don't really want to fool with maintenance/troubleshooting. Or given how many hours and the content we plan to use the projector, I didn't want to be concerned with usage hours or light output decline over time. Thus, rightly or wrongly, I concluded for our purposes, a laser seemed more practical than bulbs and hence, the UHZ65. But I definitely welcome comments that contradict my conclusion, or may steer me in the direction of another projector (in or around the UHZ 65's price).

Little insider information
Thanks for that information. It precisely was what I was seeking!!

So as long as the UHZ65 (spec & quality wise) won't be quickly superseded by another Optoma or another Laser based projector, it appears that the UHZ65 may be my first, and given my "sell-by-date", probably my last projector.

Theo UHZ65 is a modified UHZ65 approved by Optoma. Better performance overall. Since this will be your last projector, maybe treat yourself.

I am seriously considering this projector for my home theater. I’m still building my space so I have some time to make a decision. From the specs though, it looks like the ZK750 does everything the UHZ65 does except better. 140% vertical shift, brighter, better color, lens memory, etc. With higher brightness I can use a lower gain screen to improve blacks as well.

Right now for me it’s a decision between the optoma zk750 and the Christie 4k7-hs. On paper they are nearly identical.

I'd take a closer look at both of them, physically, too ;)

Don't forget, neither come with a lens so you have to include that in the cost, too.

Why would you need a picture of them? That's a little creepy and stalkerish. But if you want to read their post they are conveniently in the LK 990 and LK 970 threads.

Wait...are these the same projectors but rebranded? I just looked at the dimensions, they are identical. The controls layout is almost identical, looks like each company uses the same components but their own boards.

I cannot comment on the business dealings of Optoma's parent company.

Thank you for the information.

One guy posted some pics of his setup. He said neighbors think he bought a big ass TV cause they can see it thru the exposed building side. But I think he has the LK990. I would love to see one of those in action in someones living room or patio.

The projector being discussed here is not the substitute of the UHZ65. The new one that also supports 3D blueray is the UHZ880+ or UHZ886. The 880 has the same declared brightness and CONTRAST as the UHZ65 and the 886 has an extra 400 lumens and a declared contrast of 2.500.000:1 compared to the 3.000.000:1 for the UHZ65 and 880+
If I am not mistaken, we should be introduced to the UHZ880+in time for Christmas (at least on this side of the pond).

Hello,

I own a UHZ65 so some input on streaming at least which is where I use this projector. Just bare in mind that at least with Apple TV 4K if you “match dynamic range” of the movies order to have HDR, there is a lot of clipping in the colors...
That is a bit sad.
If you don’t choose this option in Apple TV 4K settings then clipping is somehow ok but HDR then is not how it suppose to be (a bit degraded which with trained eye you can notice).

All above is with chroma 4:2:0. If you choose 4:2:2 things are getting worst...

I m one of the people that uses BenQ LK970 as a home theater projector , my main use 4k her movies tone mapped with HTPC madVR dtm and calibrated with lightspace 3DLUT.

the picture quality is amazing !! , I know the contrast isn't the best in this projector but I rarely find any scenes that are bad , I do have a jvs rs440 next to it and I use the BenQ for all my 4k watching and gaming cause its that good. I use the jvc mainly for SDR .

and u can get the BenQ refurbished very cheap if u look around.

hope that helps.

Just checking in, as I do from time to time.:)
I am a huge DLP fan and have always been fond of Benq projectors. Since 2012, I've been waiting for them to offer powered lens controls and lens memory in a 4K machine. :( It's a standard feature on JVC and Sony. I would settle for the inherent lack of DLP contrast if lens memory were available.
Has anyone heard of a 4K DLP machine with lens memory coming in 2020?

I was considering this projector for my home theater use. I reached out to Optoma's sales department with a few questions and they responded with some added details:


  • DCI-P3 coverage is roughly 80%. Exceeded our expectations as high brightness usually results in the sacrifice of color. We were able to maintain a good balance between brightness and color.
  • Light Border – very small light border, exactly the same to UHD60, UHD65 and UHZ65 – as they share the same light engine and DMD. The DMD used in UHD50 is not used in ZK507.
  • Unit Color – White only. Black is only available with volume order.
  • Input Lag – ZK507 features an MEMC (PureMotion). With the MEMC on, input lag is in the 150ms. With MEMC off, input page is 60-70ms. As a hardcore gamer, I can tell you that the UHD60 has the best input lag as there is no MEMC – in the low 40’s. FPS gaming (CoD, Battlefield, etc) performance is more than acceptable.
  • Aspect Ratio – Native 16:9.

Finally, just upgraded my living room with this wonderful projector... it is very powerful, so bright that it makes any wall looks like a super huge LED TV.

Some photos to share....
