Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can’t wait to get a new UST projector Can’t wait to update my current LG HF85JA to this new 4K UST projector. I did a lot of research before buying my current projector and it was the most affordable option with all features I need. No complaint for my current one but would love to have 4K projector in the basement and move my current one to our bedroom. I believe once the price releases later this year it will be the most affordable for its kind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks to be a great projector, but price? I have been looking at 4K Ultra Short Throw projectors, and the specs on this one surpass the others on the market. The big question is *price*.
