Impressive 4K projector
Milind Vagal, Fishers, IN. Purchased from BUYDIG
Got this after much research on the projector and specs. and it was a good decision to put $2000 into this and worth the wait of a Pre-Order.
I am really impressed with the overall quality of the projector, the ease of use and settings, the flexibility for multiple inputs including 2 HDMI input ports.
I am using it 13 ft away ceiling mount and gives me a 135" diagonal maximizing the viewing space in my basement.
Picture quality is exceptional from the HD programming of my DISH Network and have yet to try out a true 4K source.
Projector is pretty heavy so don't compromise on the ceiling mount and I custom modified a standard mount to add a 100% fail safe, so my investment does not come crashing down.
I am using Certified HDCP 2.2 compliant HDMI on both ports regardless, one HDMI is connected through my Onkyo TX-SR702 7.1 AVR and the MHL port is directly connected to the output of the DISH Joey to prevent any signal loss from attenuation.
Have connected the VGA port just in case I meed to hook up my laptop directly, if not through the AVR.
No quality compromises on any wires hooked to the projector, since I have a 25 feet run from ceiling to AV, Satellite and Internet source. My advice that you buy the best wires you can afford for this projector and you won't go wrong on picture quality, after all the projector will display what comes to it.
The on-board speakers are quite loud, if you do not wish to use this through an AVR all the time i.e. for normal TV watching on big screen.
One thing that I did not like is of the panel door, which is rather flimsy and does not shut well leaving small gap, but again after the projector is set up I would not be opening this panel every time.
One neat feature is you can select the color of your projection surface and I have blue walls and the colors are still very vivid and see no difference in the quality.
I will also be building my own fixed screen in the upcoming weeks, using Elite ZRM-135HW-CINEWHITE material, to complement the projector quality.
Overall this is a great projector and a great investment hopefully for a long time, since this is my first projector ever and it just took me 15 years to be convinced to build my own home theater.
Fantastic 4K Experience
John Shaeffer, Plymouth, MN. Purchased from Amazon
This is a very impressive projector. I've been waiting for an affordable UHD projector for years and Optoma finally has delivered it. I was encouraged by the mostly positive reviews in my purchase of it, but after setting it up it surpassed even my inflated expectations. This thing is incredibly crisp, even with 1080p source content. I've owned 4 projectors prior to this and it is better in almost every way (not just resolution).
Some of the negative reviews on Amazon are indicative of people who may not understand that to receive 4K content, each piece of the setup (i.e. reciever, HDMI cables, other A/V equipment) also needs to support 4K. The end result is only as good as the worst piece of equipment allows.
A cautionary note for prospective buyers: there is no support for keystone adjustment so make sure it's mounted dead center to the viewing area.
If you're on the fence on this, don't hesitate. Buy now.

I am so impressed with this projector! Amazing resolution and colour quality for such a reasonable price!
Great color and resolution
Geunwoo, Park, 1111 Watson center road, Unit A, Carson, CA. Purchased from Amazon.com
I used Benq w1070 but everytime I watch the movie with it, I feel like the color is not good for me to do it.
When I first watch the title with UHD60, I feel the color is deeper and sharpener...
I want to get UHD 65 but this is good enough to have an experience 4K.

Impressive for the Price
Leonel Jimenez, Laredo, TX. Purchased from Amazon
I upgraded to this projector from an Epson that costs four times as much. I actually upgraded to the Optoma and sold my Epson for far more than this projector and I haven't regretted it for a second. This is a true breakthrough in technology at a reasonable price. To get a 4K DLP projector prior to this was a minimum $8,000 proposition and this projector produces a comparable image for a small fraction of the cost! Image is bright and beautiful. Admittedly, blacks could be deeper but when you consider the price, this is a no brainer purchase. Highly recommended.
Fantastic 4K Projctor
Omar Washington, Brooklyn, NY. Purchased from Projectorpeople.com
I am BLOWN AWAY! Upon receiving this unit, I instantly noticed haw large the unit was compared to my 1080p projector. That's never been an issue for me before so I got to connecting my mount, hoisted this bad boy up, turned on a 1080p source and BAM, the difference was instantly noticeable. The brightness, the colors, the detail, all pooped out at me.....and my source was the same as I'd always used. Lucky for me I had just received my 4K Roku Premiere Plus to really test it out. I started up House of Cards and WHOA, the clarity was amazing!
Everything with the projector is very straight forward and I'm now looking forward to playing Xbox One X (the reason I upgraded to 4K) on this bad boy. Whether you're a gamer or not, this bad boy will make any video source you put through it look better. I recommend this product!
Mark, Cheyenne, WY. Purchased from AGI
Crystal clear resolution, incredible contrast and eye popping color! My 3rd Optoma, started 720p, then 1080p, now 4k and everytime we upgrade my wife doesn't think it will be that much better and even she can't believe how each jump just keeps getting Better! Ill put this projector paired with a good screen against all flat panels.
4k is finally here where it matters...
Nate, Cincinnati. Purchased from https://www.projectorpeople.com/
I absolutely love this projector. It's fantastic for UHD movies, the colors really pop and the detail is mind blowing. 4k doesn't really matter in TV's since the screen size is so small. But it has a huge impact when you're viewing a 130 inch + screen!
It's awesome for games also. The input lag is super low, and is actually better than my LED TV. It's an absolute blast playing Destiny and Gears of War. This is also fully HDR compatible with both PS4 and XB1, unlike the Epson 5040ub.
In closing, this projector is an amazing value for the price it's at. One of the best values in the market.
An Amazing Projector
Don Morly, Texas, USA. Purchased from Projector People
I bought the UHD60 for editing my 4k travel videos and drone videos. It has an amazing picture, almost like a poster on a wall, it is so clear. I installed it in place of my previous 1080p projector that had given a bright and high resolution picture, but this is much better. I went to my 144" screen (about 14' from the projector) to look at the pixels and they were tiny and stable, much smaller than the 1080p projector's pixels; of course, they were not visible at watching distance. I have it mounted on the ceiling and slightly offset L-R from the center of the screen and saw a nice rectangular display, without any tinkering with settings. The zoom has a much better range than my old projector and allowed a display wider or narrower than the screen, should I have wanted it that way. I tested it with a 4kuhd disk in my 4kuhd player, using a new 25' highspeed HDMI cable that was rated for 4k/60 at 18mbps and had no dropouts or other problems with the signal. Besides the good brightness and nice shadow detail, the blacks were so dark I couldn't tell whether the projector was on. And it was quiet, I didn't even notice any noise. So very happy with the UHD60.
Big and sexy
ROBERT SHIELDS, Blaine Washington. Purchased from Audio video innovations
I didn't look at the dimensions before ordering and going from a HD142X to this unit, I wasn't expecting it to be twice the size. That said I am very happy with the picture. It does seem to be very sensitive to settings however. I had to do some serious tweaking to get rid of over saturation errors on bright reflections in the image on HDR content. Once that was done i found the image very satisfying. Being used to 3000 lumens on the HD142x I could not go backwards to the 2200 that the UHD65 offers. I was concerned that i would not be happy with the UHD60 because it lacks the features of the UHD65. So far I think I made the right choice.
Can't be beat for the money
Robert Hall, Moore, Oklahoma. Purchased from Projectorpeople.com
I've been waiting for the price of 4k projectors to come down, and it started to seem like they never would,but I got excited once I read about the uhd60. After looking at the specs, doing a few comparisons, and reading some reviews, I decided to pull the trigger. It did not disappoint.
The image is very bright. Even with quite a bit of ambient light, the wash out isn't as bad as you'd think. If you paired it with an ambient light rejecting screen you'd really be happy. This is in our living room and right overhead of our seating, but you can barely hear the fan. It's so much quieter than our previous projector.
The 4k really squeezes out every detail of the image. The real high point is the HDR. I wasn't sure what to expect from it, but man it makes the colors so much more vibrant. The only knock on it for me would be that there is no 3-D option available. My family and I really enjoy them so that is one thing that's going to be missed. I would have given it Five stars if not for the lack of 3-D. The trade off is well worth it though.
Awesome 4k UHD HDR content
David, Cerritos, CA. Purchased from Projector People
I was skeptical at first..how is it possible to yield a 4k UHD HDR projector at a fraction of the price of a traditional LCD projector from other well branded names? Well, I was so amazed at how accurate the colors were right outside the box. The setup was quite simple, although positioning can be limited though. The only caveat I have was switching from 4k to non4K content. Apparently, the screen goes blank as the projector registers a change in resolution, which can be annoying at times. After calling tech support, they verified that this was inherent of the product. Aside from that, the 4k projector business in here at reasonable prices with astounding color, clarity, and resolution.
