[Back Order] Samsung UST LSP7T Premiere Laser 4K 120" Smart Projector $2,939 Delivered @ Selby

960

Selby having a 50% off sale on those. Should be the lowest ever price for it (correct me if I'm wrong).
I think with local warranty and great reviews those are worth it over some of the cheaper single laser offerings like Xiaomi which are just slightly cheaper.

Specs:

  • Cutting edge technology for big-screen entertainment
  • 4K resolution and HDR processing for a brilliant picture
  • All the features of a Samsung SMART TV in a compact projector
  • Access your favourite streaming/internet apps and a tuner for free-to-air channels
  • Throws 90" ~ 120" images from <0.5m away
  • Ultra Short Throw technology
  • 2,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio
  • Laser technology with 2200 ANSI Lumens, for perfectly lit picture even in bright rooms
  • 2.2ch 30W speaker system built into the front of the projector delivers room-filling sound
  • Bluetooth audio for entertainment even when you're not projecting

      Not sure if im after this. Whats the pros and cons of this vs TVs? I feel like they tech will make TVs obsolete since costs involved to increase screen size is cheaper than increasing screen size on a TV.

        The main one is just light. If you're going to have it in a mostly brightly room, you'd want a TV. You also can't put an everyday projector in the middle of the room or anything, unless you want some screen hanging from the roof. Plus, TV's will always look better, you can't project black, so TV's will win out on blacker blacks every time.

          UST projectors and something like the XGIMI have very different use cases, so I don't think they're direct substitutes. Perhaps you should recommend other USTs.

          And you shouldn't keep linking to the Gadgetguy site, the official Samsung site clearly states it can display HDR:

          https://www.samsung.com/au/projectors/the-premiere/the-premi...

          I think what Gadgetguy is saying is that it decodes HDR10+ to SDR, rather than saying it can't handle HDR, as Creamsoda have said.

          Red dot awards are fine but don't really mean it's an amazing projector, just says it has good design - and they hand thousands of these out, Samsung's won a lot of them too.

          •  

            @hweita: This models' maximum brightness is just over 600 nits (in Gadgetguy) which is not sufficient for HDR content viewing.

            There are many reviews for LSP9T but not for LSP7T

            I like to see Vincent Teoh reviewing the new projectors!

              @Sathish9: If that's how you measure whether a projector/TV can/cannot output HDR, here's a comparison of what you are recommending vs LSP7T:

              https://www.passionhomecinema.fr/blog/index.php/24/04/2021/t...

              https://www.passionhomecinema.fr/blog/index.php/30/12/2020/t...

              The default lumens measured are very close… which means Xgimi you are recommending is also not sufficient for HDR? In fact, post colour calibration has the Samsung maintains much higher brightness than the Xgimi, indicating the brightness on that unit is forced. Let alone the much better contrast on the LSP7T which is probably more important than max brightness in a dark setting.

              Many of the average HDR TVs output at around the 600 nits mark… so using that number to say the LSP7T cannot output HDR is moot.

              Yes of course the LSP9T is much better at HDR and even does HDR10+ (think it's the first projector to do so), but it costs a bomb. And yes Vincent is a good reviewer.

              Anyway, just saying this is a good deal for a good UST projector, the Xgimi is not a comparable product, and have different use cases.

              •  

                @hweita: Yes! it's a good price and I think these prices will go further down when other brands (Hisense, LG, Fengmi, etc) release their 2021 models soon

                I am also planning to buy a projector and I was leaning towards Fengmi 4k Max (Released last year) as it has 4500 ANSI output and has support for HDR10+ and HLG.

                https://www.xiaomitoday.com/2021/03/18/xiaomi-fengmi-4k-max-...

                However, the price of this in the 4000s at the moment.

                  @Sathish9: If you're going to wait, get the tri-laser projectors. pretty sure most of the Chinese flagship UST will be tri-laser this year.
                  bomaker polaris tri-laser has decent reviews but hard to say how it performs against the brand name stuff.

    Great price.

    I have been eyeing these off - one thing that’s stopping me is the the 7 has to be quite far off the wall to even get 100”.

    The 9 is much more reasonable with the wall distance requirement, less reasonable at $7200 (after Cashback from TGG)

  •  

    Add another lazy $3000 for a quality CLR 120" 16:9 4K screen for ultra short throw projectors

  •  

    Bought this when it was first released at Samsung corporate pricing. That was $3000.00. Add $1000 for a good XY CLR screen and you have the best tv you would want.

    At this price it is amazing.

    It’s been a while since I last looked at projectors. Is project lamp lifespan still a thing these days? The 0.5m distance is pretty awesome!

    •  

      These UST projectors use lasers so have a expected life of ~20,000 hours, much longer than traditional lamps which also degrades over time

      •  

        Yea seems amazing. Looks like a worthy replacement to LCDs.

    How does gaming work on this i.e connecting consoles such as PS5 & switch?

    • +4 votes

      It can connect directly to the back of the machine, for example here's my setup (a different brand but also an UST projector):

      https://ibb.co/3M2Cgnk

      I just have PS5 sitting below the projector, connected with a short HDMI cable

        Nice! The only thing I have on that picture is the Meowsic Cat Keyboard 😿

    • +1 vote

      I have both Ps5 and switch. The consoles just plug into the hdmi ports in the back of the projector. The Samsung OS recognises the unique console (or it automatically recognised the Ps5 as a Ps5 and the switch as a switch and labeled them as such). When you turn the consoles on, it will also power on the projector and activate game mode.

  • +1 vote

    Anyone use this for console gaming? How bad is the input lag in game mode?

    • +2 votes

      Review here measures input lag of around 50ms:

      https://www.passionhomecinema.fr/blog/index.php/30/12/2020/t...

      Which is really good for an UST projector, but poor compared to high end TVs which would have lag around 10ms.

      My projector has input lag of around 60ms… Which I find acceptable for playing single player games on PS5

  •  

    Forgive the noob sounding question but what's refresh rate on these, if it's even a thing? Like last person asked hooking up to like a ps5 Or xsx would I get the 120hz refresh?

    • +1 vote

      Max it'll handle is 4K HDR 60hz, and won't do the 4K HDR 120hz which also needs HDMI 2.1 (which I don't think any UST projectors have implemented yet).

      Think you'll have to go to normal throw distance projectors if you want high refresh rates.

      •  

        Awesome thanks.

    There is a projector + screen bundle which is great as well. The Epson ALR screen has good specs. I placed and order over the phone today and they told me they will get the projector next Tue. A couple of month ago I was prepared to pay over 6K for such package. So happy with my order.

    •  

      I thought the general view for screens was the use of CLR for UST projectors?

      • +1 vote

        IMO CLR is an ALR as ceiling light is ambient light. If the screen is made for UST it doesn’t matter if they call it CLR or ALR.

  •  

    This is a good deal! For those interested, I saw the Samsung 7T and 9T demo in store. When compared, the 9T is clearly the winner, with better picture quality, colours and contrast. But seen by itself, the 7T is very impressive. Most people will not regret getting this. I personally chose to get the Hisense 100L5F which comes with an ALR screen via redemption. I preferred its black colour over the white of the Samsung. For the moment, it is projecting to my old white projector screen, and it’s already impressive. Waiting for the ALR screen to arrive.

    •  

      How much are ALR screens? Is it ok to jus put on a white wall?

      • +1 vote

        I think the ALR screens are $1-3k. Haven’t really looked as mine is coming via redemption. It’s ok to put on a white wall, but you’d be wasting a projector like this if using it like that. If you can’t find the space for a fixed screen, at least try to use a pull up one. The ALR screen will help with daytime and brightly lit rooms. If you have a dark room, you may get away with not having a screen. Im watching in a dark room with a regular white screen right now and it’s pretty good. I expect the black levels would be better with an ALR screen.

        we use a xiaomi 4k laser on a white wall. No issues from us apart from realising there is some uneveness to the wall.

        •  

          Spend the money on an ALR screen and you will be shocked at what you have been missing. I set up my projector on a white wall before I setup the screen, and the difference is astounding.

      •  

        I paid $970 delivered from XY screens for my 100” (to Sydney). The 120” is $1200.

      The Samsung would be better in almost all regards.

      From memory the Xiaomi 4k also appears to have reliability issues in relation to overheating after sometime.

      •  

        And I suspect no TV tuner in the Xiaomi

      •  

        "The Samsung would be better in almost all regards."

        Except for being 30 inches smaller. I am also considering the Xiaomi over the Samsung because of the 150 inch.

      If you spend some money on an ALR screen you will have a great experience. It’s not as good as a tv in bright light, but TVs are also not that great with reflection either. Spend $1000 on a 100” or $1200 on a 120” from XY screens (look them up on YouTube). My setup in open on one side and a window with blinds on the other and I have no problem watching anything during the day, even with blinds open.

      •  

        Keen to know which seller is selling the 120” XY screen for $1200. Did a little research the cheapest seller I could find is selling it a little below $2000.

    Does this require a set top box for free to air tv?

      No, it has a TV Tuner built in. Just plug in an antenna connection.

    Excellent price for a samsung single laser projector but unless throw distance is a constraint. An upscaling projector will throw better and larger image at a better price point and not need an ALR screen and I speak from experience. If you can darken the room and have enough distance try an Epson or Benq and a 130 inch 4k image on a 300 dollar screen off flea bay. Having said that if throw distance or a dark room is a constraint, try getting a 120 inch 4k image at 4000 + 1700 for an ALR screen or any price for that matter . Great deal on this Samsung OP.
