The new Optoma UHD55 Smart 4K projector seeks to deliver a class-leading gaming or cinema experience without the high price tag. It offers specs to match much more expensive projectors, like a bright 3600 lumens output, making it the perfect choice for your gaming setup.
Late last year, the company released its UHZ50 for $2800 and it’s one of the best gaming laser projectors out there. With the new Optoma UHD55 announced today, you get many of the same specs and features for just $1,799.
While this new true 4K gaming projector is a lamp-based machine, it still offers a lot. We’re talking sharp 4K UHD resolution, a bright 3600 lumens that’ll let you watch movies or play games in daylight, HDR, and nearly double the contrast ratio of the previous generation (UHD50X).
It seems that the goal is to offer top-of-the-line features at a decent price. Here’s a list of the specs and features you can expect at this price:
- Resolution: 3480 x 2160 True 4K UHD
- Brightness: 3600 ANSI lumens
- Contrast Ratio: 1,200,000:1
- Light source: lamp, up to 15,000 hours of operation in Dynamic Black mode

More importantly, the new UHD55 features a built-in “enhanced gaming mode” that delivers a brilliant display, not to mention a refresh rate of 16ms in 4K at 60Hz and 4ms in 1080p at 240Hz. Basically, this projector will deliver smooth, amazing and intense gaming experiences.
