UHD550X can deliver delightful 4K visuals. The image quality belies the price tag, and there's good reason to consider this projector as an affordable upgrade from an ageing 1080p unit. The level of detail from a 4K source is genuinely impressive, particularly at a screen size of 100 inches or more, and upscaling of regular HD content is perfectly competent.
Optoma has breathed new life into the 4K projector market with a trio of models priced from £1,999. At the entry-level end of the scale, the tempting UHD550X puts 4K clarity and HDR compatibility within reach of mainstream users.
Bottom line: whichever 4K Optoma you choose, there's now a genuine reason to consider a projector instead of a TV in the sub-£3,000 space.
