" ...  I had to give this projector a 4 instead of a 5 star because the 4K HDMI port on my first unit failed within the first month and I had to return it and get a different unit.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The only best affordable 4k projector that's around $2000. ... B. Nvidea shield pro (The best 4k media player you can buy vs roku/ Amazon stick etc.) ... Pros: every 4k movie I throw on plex works great , Netflix and 4k looks amazing, my pc (i am planning to upgrade gpu to nvidea 1080 ti ) can only do 2k games Max detail on nvidea shield , the games run smooth and amazing, kodi on nvidea shield was awesome (I'm cutting the cable cord) 1080p movies look good as well. ... you need to do research if you want 4k movies to work correctly (ex: my plex player did not play my 4k movies correctly it will give me an error message stating my pc is not powerful enough) the fix was to uninstall plex on my nvidea shield and reinstall plex. ... I RECOMMEND BUYING THIS PROJECTOR BECAUSE 4K CONTENT IN MY EYES IS HERE.  ...  "

" ...  Fan noise is much better than any other projector with this brightness that I have seen, and of course the picture detail is very comparable with other high end projectors, not true 4K but very very close to the naked eye  ...  "

comment
" ...  I did notice that SDR and HDR have different picture settings so you will need to calibrate both. ... On the UHD60, the dynamic black setting works perfectly and definitely helps with the black level without losing too much dark picture content. ... Much smoother, detailed picture than on a 1080p projector. ... My projector shoots just below the top of the screen but I was still able to achieve and perfectly aligned picture using the offset.  ...  "

" ...  It was MUCH more critical than I expected as I used a borderless screen and getting it aligned with the projector took much more time than anticipated. ... You can sit right next to the screen and still read text and enjoy graphics ... I try to standardize on 16:9 aspect ratio screens but it would be nice if they included support for 2.35:1, 16:10 and the new 21:9 widescreen, at least for the UHD65.  ...  "
