4K Projector Reviews

With a 4K projector you can finally sit close enough to a screen to get really immersed and still have a razor-sharp image. For other uses, the resolution aids in presenting anything requiring great detail such as, renderings, engineering, satellite photo.

Is it worth it to buy a 4K projector? We think yes! In addition to the ability to display more detail onscreen, a 4K projector lets you sit closer to a bigger screen and the image will be clearer. However…

Not all “4K” Projectors are created equal.

While some projectors can reproduce true 4K resolution, others can just accept 4K content and use techniques to get improved results out of an HD resolution display. To see our top picks view our guide of the best 4k projectors.

4k Projectors
Sony’s VPL-VW295ES is the only native 4K projector under $5000

A native 4K projector has at least 8.3 megapixels, with no pixel overlapping. If you need the absolute best resolution, you are talking about a true 4K projector – one with about 8 million separate pixels, that will hit your screen with light without any overlap

A pixel shifting 4K projector uses chips that are less than 8.3 megapixels, but fire them multiple times with pixel shifting to deliver a perceived 8 megapixels. On many DLP projectors, this works so well that it would be difficult for any viewer to see a difference in resolution from a native 4K UHD (8.3 megapixels) imager.

4K Projector Resolution
Resolution Differences by Format

The list of projectors below includes both types. There are projectors equipped with native 4K (4096×2160 or 3840×2160 resolution) panels/chips. There are also 1080P models that can accept 4K content and then utilize techniques like pixel shifting to deliver an image that is sharper than 2K or 1080p.

We get asked all the time – What’s the best 4K projector to buy? Click below to see our picks for the best 4K projectors in 2021.
