I started on this HT9050 LED home theater projector review shortly after determining that it would make a better review than its slightly-less-expensive lamp version, the HT8050. The HT9050 is a $8995 MSRP, medium-large home theater projector using TI’s 4K UHD DLP chip. While not what I call true 4K, this BenQ produces an exceptionally sharp image, thanks to the native 2716 x 1528 x2 pixel shifting resolution that puts 8.3 million (partially overlapping) pixels on your screen.
But, with several far less expensive 4K UHD projectors out there now, or shipping soon, for the home market, including those from Optoma, Acer, and Vivitek, the standout feature of the HT9050 is its long-life LED solid state light engine.
I started out with the less expensive HT8050, had it calibrated, and even wrote the first page before I became aware that the HT9050 would only be a grand more. From a practical standpoint, just the savings of not needing to buy replacement lamps pretty much justifies the cost difference. But there’s more to it than that.
