Default Ready to jump to a 4K Projector. Need Recomendations...

The MUST haves:

I'd like it to be a laser projector

Native 4K with HDR/DolbyVison (If possible)

Short Throw Projection

3D capability (very important)

My budget is $3,500 to $4000 (at the most)


Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Not many projectors if any support the Dolby Vision HDR format

Yes, I get that sense now that I am actively researching. Itís not a dealbreaker, I suppose.

Can skip the LG. No 3D on that one. For 3D, the P1 would be preferable.

Epson LS500 has the best 3D of any projector both traditional and UST.

I use to have the Optoma P2 and the 3D was terrible. The 3D on the Epson LS500 rivals any 3D TV. The only downside is because it’s active 3D, there wii still be a hint of crosstalk on the same content that gives active 3D TVs trouble.

I’d recommend the Epson LS500 as well. It seems to handle HDR content better (and allows you to adjust the HDR to get better performance), contrast is a little better as well compared to the Optoma as well, and it is the brighter 3D projector to handle more ambient light compared to the others.

Entry level native 4K projectors start at $5,500 and support Blu-ray 3D. Dolby Vision HDR projectors are on commercial projectors starting at $85,000+.
If your budget could be raised to $5,500 this is a good projector to use for the next 5 to 10 years.

I'm not sure why anyone on this forum hasn't mentioned this, but the Optoma Cinemax PRO checks all off your list (except for DolbyVision, but it does have HDR 10).

I've seen tons of mentions about the P1 and P2, but maybe the PRO is too new? Whatever the case, I've had mine for about a month now and everyone is shocked at the picture clarity and brightness even when there's ambient light present. There have been some upgrades since the P2 in brightness, contrast ratio and input lag and there's virtually no crosstalk when watching 3D. Here's a site that compares specs to the P2.

Thanks to each and every one of you for your time and suggestions. I will review all the options and let you know which direction I chose.

There are some indications that JVC may be bringing three new native 4K laser projectors to market -- basically next-gen versions of their current line (NX5, NX7, NX9). I don't think this has been 100% confirmed yet, but I am watching close.
