Time will tell on it but despite some of the quirks I listed below I do like it and it is the best of the 4 I’ve owned.I contacted the seller and was notified that the warranty was only good for 1 month.Then, suddenly, it started making a very loud whirring/hum noise.Blacks are good and resolution/detail are excellent.After that experience, I decided to try out Optoma , and the UHD50 fit the bill.HDR and stability are NOT why you buy this projector.Primary function is gaming and movies and with the ps4 pro and xbox one x it looks amazing.It also does a great job despite having a large amount of light in the room.I went from having an Epson 720p projector, to a Panasonic 1080p projector, to this one.But amazon did their best in service… they sent me a new one….It uses pixel shifting technology that satisfies the standard to call itself a 4k projector.Very happy.It has a great picture out of the box and made minimal changes to it.I did learn something the hard way though.Guess I’ll be switching back to my trusty Optoma HD131i 1080p until a good and reliable 4k projector comes out.I thought that maybe if it warmed up for a bit it would go away but it never did.Install and setup is straight forward.I went in mildly skeptical that in everyday use I would really appreciate the difference from 1080p to 2160p and further doubted that a projector without a true discrete mirror for each of those pixels would be able to give a real improvement.The only comparable projector right now with a similarly long lamp life is the BenQ, but that one doesn’t have good lens adjustments.The rainbow effect felt pretty significant when playing games — you may not notice the color fringe but you would likely experience strain on your eyes and forehead.
This is my third Optoma projector…first two were, HD 27e and Hd27Hdr…which were excellent projectors…I was wanting the 4k hdr experience so I decided to try out this UHD50 4K Optoma… Wow!!! it is clear from edge to edge.Except that sometimes half of the image disappears.I have an in focus X 10 1080 P projector which I was looking to replace.Currently connected an Xbox One S, PS4 Pro, and an nVidia Shield and no issues so far.The noise was just high enough pitch that you could hear it in the next room! The fan noise here is wild.4k image is lacking in clarity from that of the Sony images that I have seen, but it is much better than 1080p.I came from a Samsung led 4k tv 6300 series I really happy with the picture this gives compared to the tv.They are aware of it but don’t provide any info about it when you’re considering purchasing the unit.I bought the UHD50 in December and it worked fine at first.User Manual says to verify that the lanp is installed and connected correctly but the seal over the screw says that would void the warranty.I have had zero issues with any of the image quality or consistency- I think it looks incredible.After that it never comes to full screen unless we restart the projector multiple times.I am very happy with it! The picture quality is excellent and it looks just as good as an actual TV.My only gripe is a slight buzzing noise from the 4k actuator chip.I am using it in my bed room so I have a finite distance-to-screen-size ratio that I need.OMG.The 4k pixel shifting technology makes it pretty hard to distinguish between a native (8.I believe this one issue could kill your experience with the projector and hence giving it a 1 star.The 4k entrante stop working, then I change it to the normal HDMI normal entrante and it also stop working a couple of days later.
Then it projects four separate 1080p images for each video frame. Constant and repeated drop outs in picture plugged into the Apple TV directly.I used recommend setup from internet search and was not disappointed.If you’re rich, get an expensive one just to brag, otherwise this picture is pretty comparable.Projects a very good picture, but the adjustments are pretty poor when it comes to line it up with your screen.It is rather annoying but it’s not noticeable after a while.My problem is the high pitch whining that comes from the projector anytime the thing was on.Two cons: only one HDMI port seems to support 4k, and the HDR is supported by digitally compressing the dynamic range, which results in washed out image for non HDR content under HDR mode.In reality, I can’t recommend it, the unit I purchased came out-of-the-box with terrible ratting noise from the DLP unit, loud noises from the fan, and the settings changed from factory default.I have created RMA ticket with Optoma.I upgraded from a 720p Optoma projector that was 13 years old! Worked perfect for all of those years so I wanted to stick with Optoma.The UHD 50 is definitely a worthy upgraded replacement! Love the 4k and the brightness.Perfectly crisp at 4k24 and 1080p120.My only concern is reliability.However, now the source starts flashing every hour or so.Although there are many projectors out there I would highly recommend this unit.The original fan in the projector was very loud and rattled as it got warmed up.I have owned this product for over a month and can say after testing several projectors over the months this is by far the best one for the money.And I have to reselect the hdmi input.
