Formovie THEATER 4K Triple-Laser UST Projector (Screen Sold Separately)
The $3499 Formovie THEATER 4K triple-laser ultra short throw projector [manufacturer’s link] [available at Amazon] offers an amazing balance of product design attention to both image and sound quality. First of all, it’s one of just a few UST projectors currently on the market that features Dolby Vision technology which adds greater depth, sharper contrast, and more vivid colors to your viewing experience. Second, the integrated audio system was custom designed and developed by Bowers & Wilkins, a speaker company widely-recognized for producing high-performance home audio and professional audio solutions for over fifty years.
Two knocks against the Formovie THEATER UST projector are that it is NOT 3D-ready unlike some UST projectors in the same price range or cheaper that ARE 3D-capable, and its input lag of 41.9ms in gaming mode for hardcore first person shooter type games is not the best, sort of average compared to much of the competition. If you don’t care about 3D capability and are not into hardcore gaming, please read on… 🙂

According to the published specs, the lower-priced $2699.99 Formovie 4K Cinema triple-laser ultra short throw projector [manufacturer’s link] is one of the smallest, most compact, and lightest weight 4K UST projectors featured on this website, measuring just 18″ wide, 3.6″ high, 12.1″ deep, and weighing a mere 16.6 pounds.
Compared to the higher-priced THEATER model at the top of this page, the cheaper 4K CINEMA model puts out only 2100 ANSI lumens. You also give up Dolby Atmos and Bowers & Wilkins audio — it’s still got dual tweeters and dual full-range drivers and 30 watts of power. Additionally, you give up Dolby Vision and HDR 10+ for just HDR10. It runs AndroidTV 9.0 instead of 11.0. 100% Rec.709 color gamut. By sacrificing a handful of features, you can save yourself both space and money!
