Best Laser TVs For 2022 - Our Picks

By Diane Jones

Laser TVs offer some significant advantages over flat-panel TVs. First, they offer larger images for less money—in other words, you pay fewer dollars per inch of image size. Another big advantage is portability; a Laser TV is much easier to move from one home to another than a monster TV. And you get most of the other features of a flat-panel TV—long lifespan, zero maintenance, smart apps, built-in audio—as well as the ability to upgrade the screen size and performance without having to replace the entire TV.

Our Picks for Best Laser TVs in 2022

HISENSE L9G

Hisense L9G Best in Class Award

The Hisense L9G is a Tricolor laser-equipped smart ultra-short-throw projector with a brightness rated at 3,000 ANSI lumens. Depending on the screen chosen, the L9G retails between $5499 to $5999 so which makes it one of the more expensive Laser TV on the market. However, it is quite possibly the best-designed Laser TV that we have reviewed in the last two years.

What sets L9G apart from most Laser TVs displays is its color performance. The unit's TriChroma RGB 3 Laser light engine enables the L9G to achieve an astounding 107% of the BT.2020 color space resulting in images that are more realistic with improved color accuracy, depth, and brilliance.

To be clear no existing flat panel television, either OLED or LCD is capable of displaying this much of the BT.2020 color gamut.

Hisense is one of the few projector manufacturers that make flat-panel televisions with smart capabilities. Hisense brings this experience to the L9G and provides the same Android TV smart platform found in their newest flat-panel TVs. The projector’s menus and Android TV are seamlessly integrated, providing a smooth and well-thought-out user experience.

EPSON EPIQVISION ULTRA LS500 LASER PROJECTION TV

Espon-LS500-award-1

The LS500 is a laser powered, 4000 lumen, 3LCD projector with an ultra-short throw design, and it is bundled with either a 100” or 120” screen. It’s built for your living, family, or other common rooms, and will make sure they remain common, no more. At 4000 lumens, this Laser TV one of brightest Laser TVS on the market so it is definitely bright enough to utilize day or night.

It has audio that’s better than most flat-panel TVs and, most importantly, it produces a massive sharp image, one that makes a 65” LCD TV look like something that’s more suitable for a spare bedroom.

If you’re a gamer, you probably use your existing flat panel TV for gaming. The LS500's ultra-low game lag also makes it an excellent option for your epic gaming sessions. Its rated input lag of 16.7 ms input lag is a lot faster/better than most home projectors and many flat panel displays.

The LS500 is bundled with an Epson SilverFlex™ Ultra AR screen (100-inch or 120-inch). This high-resolution screen is designed for 4K content. It has a super-wide 178-degree viewing angle – so everyone in the living room gets a great seat, even your cousin you make sit on the old beanbag chair.

HISENSE PX1-PRO TRICHROMA LASER CINEMA

The Hisense PX1-PRO is a Tricolor RGB laser-equipped smart ultra-short-throw projector with a brightness rated at 2,200 ANSI lumens which sells for $3,999 MSRP. 

The PX1-PRO is classified as a Laser Cinema. So what does this new Laser Cinema projector offer, and what sets it apart from previous and current Hisense Laser TVs models? To start with, the PX1-PRO does not come with a bundled screen, thus reducing the price and allowing you to select whatever screen you wish to use. This projector enables users to adjust the screen size using a new built-in digital zoom function.

Color performance sets the PX1-PRO apart from other displays. The PX1-PRO uses a TriChroma Laser light engine similar to the one found in Hisense L9G, so it can reproduce 107% of the BT.2020 color space, providing higher color accuracy, depth, and brilliance over single laser and lamp light engines. Not even an OLED TV can display this much of the BT.2020 color gamut.

The Digital Lens Focus feature allows for ultra-fine focus tuning via menu controls to get a razor-sharp image in sizes from 90 to 130-inches.

Placed just inches from the wall, the PX1-PRO casts an image as large as 130″ with excellent brightness uniformity and edge-to-edge sharpness.

Hisense brings its integrated TV OS experience to the PX1-PRO and it uses the same Android TV smart platform found in their newest flat-panel TVs. The projector’s menus and Android TV are seamlessly integrated, providing a smooth and well-thought-out user experience.

The front of the PX1-PRO cabinet holds a 30-watt Dolby Atmos sound system that produces amazing sound quality and more bass than it should be able to reasonably produce for such a physically small ultra-short-throw projector.

The Hisense PX1-PRO offers excellent color reproduction along with smart features, low maintenance, and big sound, making it one of the most compelling ultra-short-throw RGB laser projectors of 2022. We highly recommend this projector.

BENQ V7050I

Ben Q V7050i Highly Recommended by Projector Reviews

The BenQ V7050i is a 2400 lumen Laser TV that retails for $3499. The BenQ V7050i was given our "Highly Recommended" Award because this projector delivers a noticeably crisper, more detailed, and colorful image than I have seen to date on any other ultra-short-throw projector in its price class.

It features HDR-Pro™ (High Dynamic Range) for improved image quality and shadow detail from HDR content. The V7050i also utilizes BenQ’s proprietary CinematicColor™ technology to deliver a wider color gamut covering up to 98% of the DCI-P3 color space. The projector’s Fimmaker mode did a great job utilizing the unit’s color capability accurately.

The BenQ V7050i slightly outperformed its rated brightness of 2,500 ANSI lumens. Its brightness has a lot to do with the V7050i’s Laser Light Source and the BenQ’s implementation of their proprietary technologies like HDR-Pro and CinematicColor.

V7050i’s treVolo-tuned 5W x 2 virtual surround stereo uses what BenQ calls DSP-IC. This patented audio correction algorithm powered by MaxxAudio™ adjusts the V7050i’s speakers and psychoacoustics tuning, allowing better 3D surround sound, more detailed highs, and more powerful vocals

As far as HD and 4K SDR performance go, the V7050i exceeded our expectations. This projector comes pre-calibrated from BenQ, so out-of-the-box they have put their best foot forward.

The V7050i’s HDR performance was noticeably better than many of the DLP projectors that we have reviewed. Overall, this was a beautifully designed projector that deliver amazing picture and sound qaulity, which is why we highly recommend this BenQ 7050i if you are in the market for a Laser TV.

XGIMI AURA

XGIMI-Aura-Value-Leader Award

The XGIMI Aura 4K Ultra Short Throw (UST) Smart Laser Projector retails for just $2499. The Aura is XGMI’s first UST projector so they made sure their first UST came packed with many of their advanced technologies.

XGIMI rated the Aura’s brightness at 2400 ANSI lumens. The light source's life span is rated up to 25,000 hours, that is 17 years if you use the projector for 4 hours every single day.

The Aura uses a 0.47-inch DMD Texas Instruments (TI) DLP chipset and a 2,400 ANSI lumen laser diode light source to deliver its 4K (3840 x 2160) displayed resolution.

In addition, Aura features HDR10 (High Dynamic Range); HDR10 sends static metadata to the video stream, which is encoded information on color calibration settings required to make images look more like the content creator’s intentions. The Aura covers up to 90% Rec. 709 and 80% of the DCI-P3 color gamut.
