The BenQ HT2550 is a 2,200 lumen, DLP projector that uses the new Texas Instruments 4K UHD DLP chip to get 8.3 million pixels on the screen, which is the standard for 4K. The HT2550 is intended for dark rooms and movie watching. The BenQ has a home entertainment equivalent, which has more lumens and is more for sports viewing, as it has two modes specifically geared toward indoor and outdoor sports. They are virtually identical in specs and feature set, with only a couple minor differences: lumens and the color wheel. The BenQ HT2550 and TK800 go for $1,499, one of the lowest prices for 4K capable projectors!
The BenQ HT2550 is a pixel shifter, but it’s not the usual 1920x1080 x2 or 2716x1528 x2. This projector uses the new Texas Instruments 4K UHD chip that takes a regular 1080p image and pixel shifts it four times, making it sharper than the 1920x1080p x2 pixel shifters. It accepts 4K content, so you’ll be able to watch all your favorite 4K UHD films. It is most at home in a dedicated home theater or room with good lighting control, and can even be taken outside for and outdoor movie night, due to its brightness and internal speakers. If you’ve got a bright room, consider the TK800.
The video features video clips from “Ultimate Wave Tahiti” by Stephen Low Productions and photos of the projector in action. The video clips give a little taste of what the projector can do – it has great color, right out of the box, and is even better once calibrated!
