Can Optoma's UHD30 stand in for a gaming monitor? Does 240hz refresh rate look good on a big screen? With HDR 10, 4k and a screen that can be as big as your wall, is it worth it to check out projectors again?
Big thanks to Rob over at

Yap. You are basically always upping your price class in hopes that the next one gets you all what you need but this one does also not have all the important features of that new price class. So in the end you are looking at $1700 projects thinking "damn, they are kinda shit" when in the beginning you thought, you could get a decent one for $400 and you would have been happy with the one for $400 if it would have that one tiny feature but the manufacturers wanted to keep the price below $410 so they left it out

2:22 Nah, you don't need a big room for that at all, you just have to make sure that the projector is installed on the wall at the other end of the room. I had a projector in a room that was probably even smaller than 20m² and the image took up almost the entire wall on one end, it was something about 4,xx X 3,xx metres. So for a width of 7,xx metres you'd only need an average-sized room. The aspect ratio of the room matters though, if it's long enough to project such a big image but the wall is not wide enough, it won't work.

15ms of latency? Why? Surely an LCD would be faster, there's zero reason for them to react any slower than a monitor. Keystone was done with a lens in the past. Not expensive. Other than the further distance at light speed. Which gamers can afford a system rendering 240fps? Other than DEpost types

if this does not have keystone correction then it is worthless to most of the people interested in a usable, budget 4k projector like myself. I currently have a 1080p projector with 16ms input lag and absolutely love the 100in image I get out of it. I don't really care too much about the contrast ratio and brightness as long as they are decent. Many projector manufactures are intentionally deceitful in their marketing. Any contrast ratio and brightness numbers they spout are 100% meaningless, except if your comparing the numbers against projectors in the same brand. An Optima with a 500,000:1 contrast ratio is better than an Optima with an 100,000:1 contrast ratio, but meaningless if you try and compare it to a different brand. 99% of off brand projectors claim to be 1080p projectors, even if you look at the "specs" they will list themselves as 1080p. You have to find the "Native resolution" and most of them will actually be 480:320 or worse.

I game on a $130 720p LED projector. The resolution is a downside, but it makes up for that with the massive screen size providing a decent cinema feel and reduced eye strain as a result of the projection being so far away.

Unless the advertisement was for ANSI contrast, it's intended to be measured on a full screen white vs a full screen black so there isn't light bouncing around the room. (Simplified explanation.)

On 4K, I didn't look up the spec sheet, but there is a way to "giggle" a DLP chip of lower resolution to "double" the pixels. So you may not have a full 4K or UHD chip resolution.
Nyplid Ironwolf
Nyplid Ironwolf Vor 28 Tage
The rainbow effect comes from the color wheel spinning. There is only one chip reflecting the image. As a new color is rotated into position, all the DLP mirrors go black then present the color that is being filtered. Then black again as the color wheel keeps turning. To get to 240Hz, that color wheel has to be cranking in there so there's not much time per frame to see the colors smear.

What is the refresh at 1440p? That's what I care about it. I get it at 4k it's only 60hz and 1080p it's super fast 240hz but what about 1440?

I can say the cheaper soundcore earphones are good aswell. Not exactly cheapest you can get but close to it. Though the charging case is very basic. Rather have an inaccurate display on a cheap case then nothing besides a single LED on the front. But much rather have equal volume in both ears that's good. Battery life is average. Not short but not great either. Though honestly for the best earphones I'd suggest the beats one that uses same chip that apple earbuds use due to better battery life and slightly cheaper here at least. Not used them myself since I don't need that level of audio quality. Just not noticeably bad when playing video games or watching videos. Though I don't really know if soundcore top lineup is better overall. But i do know apple audio chips are one of the best so whatever uses them is probably very good.

I used to work at a hotel/conference center, in the A/V department, and occasionally (on a slow weekend) would have a room with a 20-foot, rear-projection fast-fold screen. I would bring in my PS2, call in the Convention Services guys, and run a tournament with Rival Schools, or some other fighting game. Really nice when you have the proper mounting for the projector to prevent keystoning AND don't have to worry about blocking the projector. This was like 25 years ago, so it wasn't a really great picture, but it was still freakin' awesome.

I've bought an Epson 2247U last year for 500 bucks never used only the box opened (originally costs around 1200 bucks) mainly for replacing the tv. The color and the picture quality is exceptional even with its 1080p resolution. Only modification I needed to add is a ND2 filter to reduce the light output and increase the deepness of the blacks (yes 2400 lumens in eco mode on a 2 meters wide screen can be too much in no ambient light, and yes should have gone with a negative gain screen), also its motorized so in day light no filter is applied and the full 4200 lumens of light is projected in bright ambient light. Gaming on it is not as bad as it sounds its input lag is probably around 10-20ms which is in my opinion fully acceptable for a big screen experience. Also split screen playing even with 4 players is an incredible experience.

Not trying the more powerful lamp mode because it can't work with HDR seems a bit of a random choice to me. Akin to not testing gaming mode because it doesn't work with keystone adjustments. I'd rather see how it performs, being warned of its drawbacks.

Computers having this issue is a refresh problem. They don’t lay colors out like DLP projectors do. Not at all the same thing. Only one chip DLP projectors have RBE issues. Other types of displays can have refresh issues, but they are created significantly differently.

DONT USE keystoning for your projector anyway if you can help it. you are effectively losing resolution + quality since most of the time it's digital keystoning. If it has optical keystone, then yeah use that you won't lose any quality.
