Our Thoughts:

Brightness

2800

2200

The Samsung LSP9T is a brighter projector and is better suited for living rooms with higher levels of ambient light.

Throw Ratio

0.19:1

0.25:1

This ratio difference translates to several crucial inches closer to the screen. The LSP9T sits closer to the projector screen than any UST. 

Chipset

.67" DLP

.47" DLP

The LSP7T uses the smaller chip while still fantastic, the larger DLP chip gives a sharper image to the LSP9T.

Light Source

True RGB Triple Laser

Single Blue Laser

With a triple laser design, the LSP9T's light source gives more vibrant colors and greater brightness, while the LSP7T uses a color wheel to create the colors we see on screen.

Color

146% DCI-P3

83% DCI-P3

In large part thanks to the triple laser light source the LSP9T covers a much wider color gamut than the LSP7T

Sequential Contrast Ratio

2267:1

1299:1

The superiority of the LSP9T shows up strongly in the content we watched. When it comes to contrast the Samsung triple laser UST is possibly the best.

Input Lag

55 ms

53 ms

Neither projector is particularly strong or weak when it comes to video gaming. That said the Samsung LSP7T has a very slight edge.

Audio

10.0 Watts × 4

15 Watts × 2

The audio on the Samsung LSP9T sounds is more powerful and sounds much better.

Price

$6,496.00

$3,496.00

The LSP7T comes in at a much lower point than the LSP9T which makes sense given the triple laser UST's incredible specs.
