Amazon is offering the Optoma UHZ50 Smart 4K Laser Projector for $1,999 shipped. Down from a $2,799 normal price and $2,285 going rate for the past few weeks, today’s deal marks a return to the all-time low that we’ve tracked only twice before. This high-end projector is perfect for a premium home theater setup. Utilizing the latest DLP technology, which is similar to what actual theaters use, this projector delivers a bright, clear, and sharp 4K image to your wall. The laser light source is rated for 30,000 hours of life and delivers a brightness of 3,000 lumens as well. There are four HDR picture modes, an HDR brightness setting, and a refresh rate of 240Hz, which is pretty impressive and great for gaming setups where you plan to use this projector. And, while at 4K the response time might not be the best at 16.9ms, jumping into the Enhanced Gaming Mode at 1080p, the response time drops to just 4ms. For I/O, there’s eARC via HDMI, two more HDMI ports, three USB hookups, Ethernet, and more. Plus, the Optoma UHZ50 is smart meaning that it works with Alexa or Google voice commands and supports IFTTT for connecting to other smart home gear.

Prep your home theater with this VIVO mount that puts the Optoma UHZ50 on the ceiling. Coming in at $20 on Amazon, it’s a pretty budget-friendly buy to further upgrade your home theater. Sure, you can set the UHZ50 on a table to project. But, if you’re wanting a more premium experience overall that resembles going to the movies, a mount is an absolute must.
Over the last week, we’ve actually seen a few other projectors go on sale. If you’re not ready to drop nearly $2,000 on a projector, then consider picking up Anker’s premium Nebula Cosmos Max 4K that’s on sale for $1,100. Sure, it might not be quite as feature-packed as the UHZ50, but at the same time, it still delivers a 4K image to your home theater. However, those on tighter budgets will want to consider Anker’s Nebula Capsule 3 portable projector that’s just $680. This is a fraction of the cost of Optoma’s model above and even features a built-in battery that lasts up to 2.5 hours so you can watch a movie anywhere.
