    Out of the box, the first thing you notice about the Optoma UHD40 is the compact chassis size in relation to competing models, the only other projector of this size being the BenQ W1700. Finished in white with light grey trims, the Optoma UHD40 certainly has a clean, minimalist design which will blend unobtrusively with white ceilings.

    Featuring a 1.21-1.59:1 lens, the UHD40 has a shorter throw lens than competing models allowing you to place the projector closer to the screen to achieve large images. Particularly beneficial if room space is limited. In addition to the 1.3x optical zoom, the UHD40 also has a 10% vertical lens shift - a feature not found on home cinema models at this price point especially not ones featuring 4K UHD resolution.

    Once up and running in our demo room on Projecta 4K UHD Fixed Frame Screen the Optoma UHD40 using standard "cinema" preset produced well balanced, natural, vibrant images with a superb level of clarity given the pricepoint. Finite detail was faithfully reproduced with little noticeable softening given its using a 4x pixel shift to achieve the on screen 3840 x 2160 pixel count. As ever it's worth spending a little time using a calibration disc to tweak the standard presets to suit your own room environment to really make the image pop.

    The whole team here at ProjectorPoint were suitably impressed with the feature set, design and clarity of image produced - something that rarely happens so the Optoma UHD40 is bound to be a very popular model. Don't just take our word for it, come and see it in action for yourself.
