Optoma has given its media-savvy living room projector a brightness boost. John Archer leaves the lights on for some 4K HDR viewing

Much as we love projectors, trying to use them in a dark room can be a pain. Particularly if their remote controls don't have any backlighting.

This projector's legacy video inputs and quirky presets might not appeal to John Archer, but its 3D performance and price tag do

There are four things you need to know about the BenQ TH535 right off the bat. First, it's a DLP projector that costs just £500. Second, while pitched as a home entertainment projector, it's also got a Presentation preset. Third, it's a Full HD model with no 4K or HDR capabilities. And, finally, it's really bright – a claimed 3,500 Lumens bright, to be precise.

hccbestbuybadgev3JVC has gone native (4K) with its 'mainstream' D-ILA projectors. John Archer dims the lights and drools

JVC's D-ILA home cinema projectors have almost always been brilliant. What they haven't typically been up to recently, though, is natively 4K – and its first native 4K home cinema model was the £35,000 Z1 laser PJ, which I'm almost certain you didn't buy. More affordable models long relied on proprietary e-Shift technology to deliver a pseudo 4K effect by passing HD images through two fractionally offset 1080p imaging chips.

John Archer fires up HDR, SDR and 3D on the latest addition to Epson's '4K Enhancement' LCD projector range

Epson's latest 4K Pro-UHD LCD projector promises serious bang for your buck. For £1,500, the EH-TW7100 claims a maximum brightness of 3,000 nits and contrast ratio of 100,000:1, and image sizes up to 500in. It even packs a Bluetooth output for streaming audio to external speakers, in addition to its onboard 2 x 10W sound system.

Optoma's 4K ultra-short-throw PJ is a convincing TV replacement, suggests Steve May.

Able to cast a big image in a relatively small room, positioned just centimetres from a white wall, it's not difficult to see the appeal of an ultra-short-throw (UST) projector. There's no fear of walking in front of the beam either, causing oversized shadows on the action. The downside is that almost all UST projectors look like escapees from the office Christmas party.

hcc_recommendedLow latency and HDR compatibility make gaming on this 1080p Optoma a bright idea, says Steve May

Smart and compact, with a glossy white finish, this new 1080p DLP projector from Optoma is designed for living room rather than dark theatre use. So far, so typical, but what makes the HD29H particularly interesting is that while it's unequivocally a Full HD model, it's also HDR compatible. It'll read HDR10 metadata and attempt to produce a correctly balanced dynamic image.

hcc_recommendedThis £2,550 PJ is the more expensive brother to the previously reviewed EH-TW7400. Does it do enough to warrant the extra money?

hcc_recommendedIs BenQ's flagship PJ as accurate as the company claims, asks Steve Withers?

BenQ has made some bold boasts about its new CinePrime series of projectors, and especially the flagship W5700 reviewed here. As with the lower-cost W2700 [see HCC #299], it incorporates CinematicColor technology, but here the company claims it reaches 100 per cent of the wide colour gamut used by UHD Blu-rays, making it the first single-chip DLP 4K home projector to achieve the feat.

With its smart design, LED light source and powerful soundbar sonics, the ViewSonic X10-4K bucks the projector trend.
