ViewSonic PX747-4K DLP Projector Review

Prepare for takeoff…

What is the ViewSonic PX747-4K?

The ViewSonic is the latest 4K DLP projector aimed at the home entertainment market and retails at the time of this review (November 2018) at £1200. It features the latest Texas Instruments 0.47” DMD XPR (1920 x 1080) DLP chip, which flashes four times in quick succession. This creates an image which, to your eye, appears to have 8.3 million pixels, the same as native 3840 x 2160 4K devices. The marketing material claims this is true 4K, but this isn’t technically the case given the way the image is created. However, it is far more cost-effective than producing native chips and at normal seating distances image attributes such as black levels, shadow detail, colour and white balance are more obvious between side by sides tests with native 4K projectors, than resolution alone. At those distances, it is trickier to see just resolution differences.
