Hello everyone. I've gone thru a lot of projector reviews and I'm still left scratching my head.

So many projectors really boast their 'speakers' to elevate their review status and I'm not looking for fancy speakers to drive up the price of the projector.

What I need is a solid high quality projector for a 120" screen area.

This will be in a living room with a decent amount of ambient light during the day but can be darkened at night.

I already have a good sound system so speakers are not needed.

could you guys please give me some advice on a high quality 4K BRIGHT Laser Projector (UST) and a proper screen to go with it.

Thank you guys for any help / information!

Depends largely on budget. The Hisense tri-laser projector won in a recent shootout against competitors like Samsung and others. So, I expect that to be a solid choice.

Screens are really fairly decent from most. I would take a close look at the XY Screens.

Help required deciding on a Projector. I have read the short throws are hard to adjust to the screen size compared to the Long throw. I have been comparing the Samsung LSP7T, Optoma, VaVa and the LG. Can you please suggest one with excellent image quality (Comparable to OLED TV). Speakers are not important. Also the calibration should not be challenging where it would require a professional expert. If the UST laser projectors are not a good option which Long throw projectors would you suggest in the range $1500-$3000.

You should always get a long throw projector if the room and setup allows for it. UST was designed for rooms where space is very limited and there is no ability to install a standard throw projector. Think Asian markets and small apartments.

In a proper theater, the Epson 5050UB is the best looking projector under $3,000 out there.

Yes UST projectors are extremely difficult to get perfectly aligned to a screen and any small bump to them messes up that alignment. It is false that you must buy a UST ALR screen, so be aware of that. If your home theater setup is actually a dark room as it should be, then a white screen will work very well.

Thank You for the quick response and suggestion. How does the Optoma UHD 35 compare to the Epson 5050UB ?
