Not long ago we were praising BenQ for a 4K HDR projector at a reasonable price, the HT2550. That projector ended up selling for $ 1,500 in the US. UU And it compared favorably with Optoma's 4K offerings. But now, just a few months later, BenQ returns with another $ 1,500 HDR 4K projector: the TK800.
The outstanding specification of the TK800 is its 3,000 lumens rating, which is a bit brighter than the 2,200 lumens of the HT2550. BenQ also states that the TK800 has improved the accuracy and color reproduction. It still has nothing impressive in terms of color such as a modern OLED HDR or LCD TV, but it is almost always exchanging a good amount of quality for the size of the screen when it gets a projector.
In addition, if the price did not make it obvious, it is good to point out that the TK800, like the previous HT2550, and any other projector that costs less than a car, is not "native" 4K, but is based on a 1080p chip combined with XPR pixel switching (which should not be confused with changing pixels) to create the 8.3 million pixels required by the 4K specification. The image on your wall is still much sharper than a 1080p projection, but the commitment bothers some people. If you are one of those people, I recommend this AVSForum thread on the subject.
The BenQ TK800 will be available in April.
