“Optoma HZ40UST is largely film-appropriate and is perfect for a large, bright living room for a  convivial movie or gaming day/night. Firstly, the color representation is more suitable for movies, also the projector is correspondingly quiet, and finally bright enough with 2000 lumens for a bright image, and also produces great 3D images with hardly any significant loss of light.”

This is only 1080p but with the lumens and contrast ratio -  you get an incredible picture!

The flexibility in terms of the adjustments you can make from within the menu set means you can control the size really easily indeed. 

Having an ultra short throw projector really does increase the flexibility of how, where and when you watch movies. For instance, you can be a lot more portable – you don’t have to have huge long HDMI cables. 

If you’ve got a small space on a wall then you can just move it closer and you still get an amazing image. You can also be more flexible in the locations that you take it to. 

One things is undeniable and that is the picture quality.  It is absolutely exceptional.

The Optoma ZH420UST is largely film-appropriate projector and makes a movie or gaming evening fantastic, even in bright living rooms. The projector is nice and quiet and the 2,000 lumens in eco mode is still enough for a bright picture.
