It's not all about the numbers printed on the box..
..Take IMAX for example they are all THX (for the colours) but only use 2-4K dots for a screen size of 22 x 16m. The smaller the screen the less dots needed. Your projection screen may be 1/10th of IMAX. From any distance you can see how accurate the colours are, so you may need to decide between more dots and more accurate colours if your budget is $2,000-$3,000 range.
Check out the W2700 & W5700 for TRUE 4K. The BenQ W5700 Home Theatre projector has the lot at a very reasonable price, it's all you could want in top of the line 4K (True, addressable) home cinema. The BenQ's W5700 also has a longer throw distance than the W2700. The W2700 is an ideal "plug in" upgrade from the W1070 having the same shorter zoom and mount points.
The 2 new BenQ 4K Projectors could be in short supply as production ramps up over the next few months.

Tips for buying on the net and getting a delivery
If you're spending thousands on the web it may be worthwhile considering a company like
our ausmedia.com.au that's been going since 1984 and accepts BPAY payments.
Most "so-so" operations don't accept BPAY because it's too hard for them to get approval.
Beware of GRAY MARKET as some tell fibs about the real warranty, always read the fine print.

New BenQ W11000H Home Cinema Projector with HDR
All Epson projectors apart from the L, Z, LS and EV series.
Recalled projector models are those that can be ceiling or wall mounted.
"..Dear Epson Projector Customer,
Thank you for your support of Epson products.
We have become aware that ceiling and wall mounted projectors that are installed in close proximity to exhaust equipment with significant exposure to smoke, steam or vapours containing oils could damage the projector casing. In this environment some of our products may be susceptible to material degradation in the mounting points, which over time could break causing the projector to drop from its mount.
Our records indicate that you have purchased one of the affected models. To date there have been no incidents in Australia, however if your projector is installed in close proximity to exhaust equipment with significant exposure to smoke, steam or vapours containing oils then please contact Epson on 1300 655 723 between 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday. If appropriate we will arrange a visit and where necessary apply a safety wire free of charge.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation."
So for most people this is no big deal unless the projector is mounted say near a kitchen in a public venue.
