The Best 4K Projectors on the Market

The projector market can be a little overwhelming with the sheer level of choice available. But for those who have decided that they want the best quality picture money can buy, there is only one place to go: straight to the best 4k projectors.

4K projectors boast a picture quality of 4096 x 2160 pixels. This puts them well above their next best competitor, Ultra High Definition (UHD) projectors, which have a resolution of 3840 x 2160 and above.

The simple fact is that 4K projectors come with a clarity and colour reproduction that is well above anything else on the market, giving the viewer a more immersive and flexible experience as, no matter where you sit in relation to the picture, your view will be fantastic with a 4K projector.

So if 4K is what you need, then what are the best projectors to consider? We're taking a look at some of our favourites in this week's blog.

Epson EH-LS10000

All of the projectors we're highlighting today are staff picks from us here at ProjectorPoint. First up is the Epson EH-LS100000.

This Epson projector has fantastic image quality, 4K upscaling and a laser light source. It boasts an excellent 1,500 ANSI lumens and 1,500:1 contrast ratio.

Some might think this an odd projector to start with as it doesn't actually have true native 4K resolution, instead working with enhancement technology to ensure the device can accept the 4K input signal and simulate a 4K output by using pixel shift technology. On a practical level this means that it electronically shifts alternate frames half a pixel across and half a pixel up and in doing so doubles the frame rate and apparent resolution on the display.

The device has a super quick start-up time of just six seconds and you can get a full image on screen within 60 seconds. There is a little tweaking required to get things looking as good as you'd expect from this quality of projector but once up and running the device offers a fantastic picture and simple operation.

Sony VPL-VW320ES

Next up is the Sony VPL-VW320ES, a device that's truly in a class of its own. With a regular price of £5,634 and a special Black Friday discount from ProjectorPoint of just £4,695, this device is a true 4K projector and there is simply no other device on the market at this price point that offers such a good quality picture.

With a 200,000:1 contrast ratio and SXRD display technology on top of its 4K native resolution, this is one projector you need to see in action to appreciate the quality of its picture.

The device delivered rich, deep colours, even in sunlit rooms and its convenient size and stylish exterior makes it an excellent addition to any home cinema or lounge setup where picture quality matters.

Sony VPL-VW520ES

Sticking with Sony, but moving up the price range to £9,278 (£8,678 if you order as part of our Black Friday deals!), we have to mention the Sony VPL-VW520ES.

This device is step up from its 320ES cousin and the specs make that clear. The device comes with 1,800 ANSI lumens of brightness and a 300,000:1 contrast ratio, along with HDR compatibility alongside its 4K native resolution.

The VPL-VW520ES has been clearly shaped by Sony's knowledge of cinematic projection and it's something that comes across when the device is setup in the home. Its compatibility with HDR technology is also of particular as this emerging video format starts to take hold among content creators and streaming services like Netflix start to look at offering their content in these new formats.
