Comparison Table: Best 4K Home Theater Projector

1. BenQ TK800M 4K UHD Home Theater Projector
This projector features high-quality 4K image and video quality for super clear and crisp visuals, plus it features great light penetration, not to mention that it’s quite bright, so it works even if a room is not totally dark. The HDR design ensures that colors are vivid and bright, with great contrast, all without losing sharpness or clarity.
The BenQ TK800M 4K UHD Home Theater Projector uses the same technology a majority of movie theaters use, so you know that it’s going to deliver a lot of quality. There’s also the fact that you can mount it in multiple positions or locations, and it will still work just fine.
2. ViewSonic 4K Projector
The ViewSonic 4K Projector is pretty impressive seeing as it can project onto a screen of up to 300 inches while maintaining 3,500 lumens of brightness, which makes it ideal for fairly large home theaters, plus it can project close to 12 inches in distance, which is not too shabby either. It might not be the brightest projector out there, but as long as the room is fairly dark, it should work just fine.
It features 4K video quality and can support HDR content too, not to mention that it has good color contrast and quality as well. The ViewSonic 4K Projector is very easy to mount and install in a variety of positions and locations, and it has quite an impressive array of connectivity options as well.
3. Optoma 4K HDR Ready Home Theater Projector
The Optoma 4K HDR Ready Home Theater Projector features both 1080p HDR AND 4K HDR support. The overall image quality is quite good, and it does feature pretty good color contrast, quality, and clarity, maybe not quite as impressive as some of the much more expensive models, but it does still hold its own.
In terms of brightness, this projector can put out over 3,400 lumens, and it even works pretty well for outdoor purposes, although not for daytime use. The Optoma 4K HDR Ready Home Theater Projector is about as easy to install as it gets, plus it can connect to pretty much any device and operating system out there.
4. Epson Home Cinema 4010 4K Projector
Something that really stands out about this projector is the fact that it has amazing color quality, by far the best of all the projectors we have looked at today. Moreover, it comes with 2,400 lumens of brightness, which is fine for basic indoor use in a dark room, but does not work well for outdoor use, or if it’s light in your room.
The full 10 Bit HDR color processing here allows for some of the best color quality and contrast around. The 30axis motorized precision lens is about as good as it gets, especially at this price level, and the special Epson lens is designed for zero light leakage, which is important seeing as this projector does not produce all that many lumens. You may like how the Epson Home Cinema 4010 4K Projector is easy to install and mount.
5. Sony Home Theater Projector
The Sony Home Theater Projector is intended for movies, and it also does really well for video games. It features a fast refresh rate, and other features which allow for super smooth motion, whether you are playing a first-person shooter or watching an action movie. It is a 4K projector, and it works great in terms of quality, clarity, and color contrast, not to mention that it’s also very easy to install. Just keep in mind that it puts out only 1,500 lumens, so it needs to be used in a fairly dark room.
When shopping for a 4K home theater projector, consider the price in comparison with the quality. Generally speaking, you get what you pay for, so the more money you are willing to dish out, the better a 4K home theater projector you should be able to buy.
