I'm interested in the ViewSonic x100-4k it has some good specs, and pleased to see it on your list. Does this mean that you have seen it running it that it comes close to what it promises or is the award purely based on the spec sheet. Any news on a release date?

Would you recommend me a projector to go with an Elite Screens Starling Tab-Tension 2 Series CineGrey 5D 120" 16:9 4K Ultra HD screen? I am looking at the Optima UHD50X and GT1090HDR. If there’s better suggested one under 2k I am open to suggestion. The room it will be in has a lot of windows so day viewing football hockey or movies is obviously a concern also the clarity since we really enjoy bringing people over for movie nights. Any help is appreciated, this will be my first projector.

Julian, the UHD50X is a UHD resolution projector while the GT1090HDR is only 1080p, but with some capability of accepting UHD HDR signals. We have a review pending of the 1090, which is laser driven. It'll be brighter than just about any other $2K projector, but its contrast performance remains to be seen. Your CineGrey 5D should help with that, however. Still, unless you have an aversion to a lamp-based projector, I'd opt for a full UHD projector with HDR capability. The UHD50X is a good choice (please read our review of it to understand its strengths and weaknesses better). Other high-brigtness options include BenQ's TK850 and TK810, and Epson HC3800.

Dan, our award here is based on its innovation as an LED-based projector and not its performance. We've seen it in action in early prototype form at trade shows but not in any manner that would allow us to assess its performance. We've requested a sample of it and hope to review it as soon as one becomes available.
