It does good 3D too. True, most projectors do 3D, but then, with most LED TVs no longer supporting 3D, it’s worth pointing out. Of course, most TVs are too small to properly immerse you in the 3D experience – which is why 3D is big with projector folks, but not TV ones.
The dynamic iris improves black level performance, setting the HT3550 apart from a whole lot of competing 4K UHD DLP projectors around or below its price.
But, if you want a 4K UHD projector with even better black levels, I can only think of two others under $10,000 and one of those is the next step up BenQ HT5550, about $1,000 more, that has an even higher performance iris/optical system.
BenQ’s major emphasis on having really good out of the box color in its best (of many) picture modes, and adding to that better dark scene performance – thanks to the dynamic iris – than any other under $2000 projector I can think of, it is a personal favorite, for the bucks.
