ViewSonic PX727-4K - Affordable 4K home cinema projector

The ViewSonic PX727-4K is a budget 4K UHD home cinema projector with HDR compatibility and excellent colour reproduction.

4K UHD resolution

The ViewSonic PX727-4K is ViewSonic's first 4K projector. It uses, as is usual with the 4K DLP projectors, the 4K-UHD resolution with 3840 x 2160 pixels. It offers excellent image sharpness, which is becoming more and more standard for home entertainment. The 4K resolution is just right for displaying the finest image content. Compared to the Full HD resolution, you can now perceive significantly more detail, which makes the home cinema even more attractive.

HDR compatible

As befits a 4K projector, the ViewSonic PX727-4K HDR is compatible. The presentation of the High Dynamic Range opens up completely new worlds to the viewer. Content that were previously in the dark, are now recognizable, thanks to the fine contrast gradation. It should be said that this is not just a better gradation of contrast from black to white. The colour representation also benefits from HDR as here the gradations are also clearly visible, which brings a greater variety of colours to the 4K projector.

RGBRGB colour wheel

Speaking of colour representation, here is the ViewSonic PX727-4K favourably placed. Its basis comes from the RGBRGB colour wheel, which ensures a natural colour reproduction. The missing, white segment in the colour wheel makes for very little rainbow effect if you even recognize it. It should also be said that the RGBRGB colour wheel is a prerequisite for a good Rec. 709 colour space coverage. The Viewsonic PX727-4K calibration settings can easily be adjusted in the easy to use menu, but take care when doing so and make sure to use a quality calibration tool.

As indicated, the ViewSonic PX727-4K is able to cover 96% of the Rec. 709 colour gamut. That means it provides excellent colour reproduction, which is a must for home cinema fans. For the future, the ViewSonic 4K projector is compatible with Rec. 2020. It is thus prepared for the next, high colour space Rec 2020. This was a big positive in the ViewSonic PX727-4K review.

Other features

Other features of the ViewSonic 4K projector include its 10W internal speaker meaning that a smaller room can be filled with sound. When positioning the projector, vertical keystone correction of +/- 40 degrees is helpful.

Specs

The DLP projector uses 3840 x 2160 pixels of the 4K UHD resolution in 16:9 format. Its light output of 2,200 lumens is at a good level however we think its more suitable for a dedicated home cinema room. The projector certainly benefits from being in a darkened environment. The contrast of 12,000: 1 provides a good black level.

Connections

In terms of connections, the ViewSonic projector is well positioned. It has two HDMI inputs, one of which supports HDCP 2.0. There is also a VGA input, an RS232 interface is available for the control along with A 12V trigger connection. A 5V DC USB port is available as well as a mini-USB port. For the internal speaker, a 3.5 mm jack input and an output are available.

Delivery

In the box you will find a power cable, a VGA cable, a remote control with batteries, a quick guide and a detailed instruction manual on CD-ROM.

Conclusion

The ViewSonic 4K projector makes entry into the 4K home cinema interesting for many users. Since the ViewSonic PX727-4K price is at a very attractive level, it will find many fans. Thanks to its good colour rendering, it also convinces in terms of image quality.
