When it comes to 4K laser projectors the UHD35 is in the low to mid-price range. It’s a versatile projector that works well with most home entertainment setups.

Image Quality

With a 4K resolution, you get immersive onscreen images. The 8-segmented color wheel produces accurate colors, along with the 10-bit color processing. UltraDetail technology optimizes images with a faster frame rate to produce sharp, crisp images. Sports, action movies, and fast-paced games all play smoothly without any image blurring.

HDR & HDL technology, combined with a dynamic contrast of 1,000,000:1 produce deep, rich blacks, and crisp, brilliant whites. Blacks are still inky in daylight with crisp details.

A 3,600 lumens rating lets you watch movies and play games with the lights on. The lamp is also almost maintenance-free. You can use the projector daily for years before replacing the light source.

Gaming Quality

Gamers finally have an affordable 4K projector with a fast refresh rate and latency speed. Even first-person shooter games play smoothly.

When you’re in Enhanced Gaming Mode, input lag drops to 4.2ms. The image quality decreases to 1080p, but images are still bright, crisp, and clear. If you want to keep the 4K resolution, latency speed is an acceptable 16ms. It’s still fast enough for most games, especially when you add in the 240Hz refresh rate.

Pros

  • 4K resolution
  • Low input lag
  • Fast refresh rate
  • Bright picture
  • Dynamic contrast

Cons

  • The noise from the projector fan can overpower the internal 10-watt speakers

Ease of Installation and Set-Up

You have options when you’re setting the projector up. The UHD35 comes with a ceiling mount, and you can also set it up on a table. Weighing slightly over 8lbs, you won’t strain a muscle installing the projector on the ceiling.

The UHD35 is a standard throw projector that can cast up to 300” images. For 100” images, you need around 10’ between the screen and projector lens. The 4K projector also makes image alignment a breeze.

Digital horizontal and vertical keystone correction takes care of the corners and edges of the screen. It also comes with digital and 1.1x manual zoom. Manual focus makes it easy to fine-tune images. If you’re still having problems centering onscreen images you can use the Geometric Correction function.

You have plenty of space to connect everything from DVD players, streaming sticks, and gaming consoles.

Consumer Impressions

The UHD35 produces a bright, crisp picture in daylight without faded colors. Consumers also agree it is easy to install, though they wish it came with  lens shift for a little more flexibility. The input lag and refresh rate receive rave reviews from gamers, even when they lose some image quality in gaming mode.
