If you're aiming for the ultimate home theater experience in any room of your home then an ultra short throw projector is they way to go.  Also known as laser TVs, these innovative entertainment devices sit right under your projection surface and deliver stunning visuals from a close distance. Think of them as the modern-day replacement for traditional flat-screen TVs, but instead of a puny 60-80 inches you're looking at achieving a screen size over 100 inches! Best of all these laser TVs are bright enough for even lights on viewing. Especially when you pair your close-range projector with an ultra short throw screen that is specially designed to reject the ambient light in the room.

It's no wonder that sales of ultra short throw projectors are blowing up across the nation!

But with so many 4K UST projectors available to choose from, how do you decide between options? That's where the experts at ProjectorScreen.com come in. We've created a series of projector vs. projector comparisons where we go in depth into the specs to help you pick the best ultra short throw projector to meet your needs.

For today's laser TV shootout we've got the Formovie Theater vs. Hisense PX2-Pro. These are two of our best selling ultra short throw projectors, so we're super excited to be putting them head to head for your amusement and knowledge.

Let’s break down the key features and find out which UST projector reigns supreme.

Formovie Theater

The Formovie Theater has been the top-selling ultra short throw projector since it launched here in the USA in the summer of 2022. It is the enhanced and updated version of the Fengmi T1, its Chinese counterpart.

This triple laser 4K ultra short throw takes full advantage of the advanced ALPD® 4.0 RGB+ technology. This innovative light engine helps give the Formovie Theater some of the best black levels you'll find on a laser TV. {Spoiler Alert}, the amazing specs found on this projector helped the Formovie Theater take 1st place for the 2nd year in a row at the Projector Central/ProjectorScreen.com Laser TV showdown in 2023. As our #1 selling ultra short throw projector, it will be quite a challenge to unseat it as the best UST on the market.

Hisense PX2-Pro

Top of the line projectors only stay that way for a short period of time. In the world of technology, new advancements happen often and if you can't keep upgrading and innovating your top-of-the-line products will fall out of favor quickly. That's why Hisense unveiled their brand new TriChroma PX2-Pro as a upgrade to the previous PX1-Pro.

The  Hisense is known for producing outstanding laser TVs. In fact they coined the term. The Hisense PX2-Pro is one of their latest ultra short throw projectors to hit the market. This UST projector is a true RGB triple laser projectors with crisp detail, bright vivid colors and buttery smooth motion handling. Unlike their other triple laser UST, the Hisense L9H which is designed for more well lit rooms such as a living room, the PX2-Pro is built as more of a home theater projector.  Though the PX2-Pro is still an absolute winner and it shows because it tied for 2nd place at the Laser TV showdown in 2023.

Hisense PX2-Pro Vs Formovie Theater

Both of these triple laser ultra short throw projectors excel in different areas, but which one is better? Whether you prioritize brightness, contrast, or screen size, our head-to-head comparison will help you decide.

So grab your popcorn, dim the lights, and let the laser TV projector battle begin!

Both USTs sit close to the screen but the Theater will sit a few inches closer than the PX2-Pro.

Formovie Theater

Why You Should Buy The Formovie Theater

The Formovie Theater is clearly one of, if not the best, 4K ultra short throw projectors available on the market today. The low price and incredible specs make this 4K laser TV difficult to top.

Apart from the great value, This UST has incredibly bright accurate colors, a super sharp detailed image, great motion handling, phenomenal contrast and some of the deepest blacks we've seen on a laser TV. All these attributes combine together to create an enthralling picture that puts the Formovie 4K laser TV ahead of the Hisense PX2-Pro. It is honestly difficult to express in writing just how mesmerizing the image is on the Formovie Theater without seeing it in person.

With a 2800 lumen, triple laser light source, the Formovie Theater is bright enough for most rooms, especially when paired with an ambient light rejecting screen like the Spectra Vantage. That 400 lumen advantage is a big deal when every ounce of brightness matters for lights-on viewings.

Another big advantage that helps the Formovie Theater win is the level of control you have over the picture. It looks great out of the box but this 4K ultra short throw also offers a plethora of calibration options that let you dial in the projector to your liking more than most other units. The wide variable focus allows you to pick your preferred screen size all the way up to 150 inches. With the PX2-Pro you're limited to a 130 inch screen size.

If you don't want to use an external sound system, the Formovie Theater features the best built-in soundbar found on any laser TV. It offers rich and powerful sound, unmatched by any of its competitors.

And we need to emphasize this again. The value you get from this projector for its level of visual performance is one of the most attractive features. It's a true bargain for this low price!

Why You Should Buy The Hisense PX2-Pro

The 4K Hisense PX2-Pro finished in second place at the Laser TV Showdown for a reason. That's largely because it offers brilliant and cinematically accurate colors. Speaking of colors, it has some of the best and most vibrant we've seen in any UST projector. On top of that it offers an incredibly sharp image.

For those of you who like watching sports, action movies or fast paced video games, the motion handling found on the PX2-Pro is superior to every other ultra short throw model according to the judges at the 2023 lasertv showdown who gave it the highest scores in 24p motion.

Another major advantage of the Hisense PX2-Pro is the operating system. By utilizing the Google TV smart TV interface, this Hisense triple laser unit provides built-in apps like Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, Hulu and Netflix. If you want to watch Netflix on a Formovie Theater, you need to use an external streaming device that takes up one of the HDMI ports. So if you're a big fan of Netflix, the PX2-Pro might be the way to go.

If you're planning to use your UST in a light controlled room like a home cinema, the brightness advantage of the Formovie is greatly reduced. And like the Formovie Theater, when you pair the Hisense PX2-Pro with an ALR screen that's made for USTs you can overcome most living room lighting situations. However, if you're looking for a brighter triple laser projector you may want to consider the Hisense L9H. The L9H comes bundled with either a 100 inch or 120 inch UST screen that rejects ambient light.
