We had a 60" LED TV that developed a discolored area that was getting hard to ignore. We looked at larger panel screens but the logistics of getting them home kept us from going ahead. I discovered UST projectors in late 2021 and measured to see what screen we could accommodate. ~90" seemed the best size for our space and furniture. After studying online reviews, Hisense proved to be the best value. The 100L9G was too big but the 100 day return promotion almost got me. When the PX1-Pro came out it was the answer! I exchanged many emails with Brian who was very responsive and helpful and I see why people speak so highly of him. The 90" screen I wanted was on backorder due to the shipping nightmare in California so I waited until the end of January before I purchased the projector alone. I'm hoping to get a screen from projectorscreen in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, the picture is very viewable on our lightly textured off white wall. The projector has enough brightness for daytime viewing with ~500 lux of outside light coming in from one side at the seating position. The attached daytime image is 381 lux. Current daytime picture settings are brightness/contrast: 75%, color 57% and red saturation: -80%. The nighttime image is using default filmmaker mode.
Sound from built in speakers is adequate, not great for music, and can be adjusted a little with the equalizer settings. I bought a Platin Monaco system for the (front, so far) atmos option down the road and am happy with the sound. I’m trying to incorporate the legacy 5.1 system but that might not work out due to lag issues. Luckily the Platin system is upgradable if needed. I'm glad I took the plunge into the UST world and look forward to completing the entire system.
