If upgrading your home theater setup is at the top of your fall Prime Day to-do list, then now’s a good time to consider replacing your old screen with a laser projector. Looking for a recommendation? We highly recommend AWOL Vision’s LTV-2500 4K UHD ultra-short throw triple laser projector, which is $900 off during Amazon’s two-day shopping event.
AWOL Vision previously sent our shopping editors a review unit. In our hands-on testing of the LTV-2500 UST (ultra short throw) projector, to say that we were impressed is an absolute understatement. Whether streaming visually stunning films such as The Lord of the Rings and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in a pitch-black setting, or playing video games like Minecraft and Mario Kart in broad daylight, we were blown away by the truly cinematic experience across our 100-inch screen (it can project from 80 to 150 inches), thanks to the Dolby Vision technology, HDR10+ and more than one billion colors for the ultimate contrast and accuracy. (The company notes that its device is the only RGB UST projector in the market right now with Dolby Vision and Atmos, HDR 10+ and Active 3D.)
It delivers in the original 24fps without adding extra frames, allowing you to watch films exactly as the directors intended. Gamers, meanwhile, enjoy a screen lag time of only 8ms in 1080p, an impressive number considering the massive picture size. The Dolby Atmos surround sound and included Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max make streaming content with stunning audio as easy as plugging and playing.
And since it’s ultra short throw, the projector only needs to be about seven inches away from the wall and great for those who don’t want to mount anything to their ceiling or walls.
Though you can project onto any flat, white wall, we recommend bundling the LTV-2500 projector with one of AWOL Vision’s matte white screens (available in 100-, 120-, 135- or 150-inch sizes), which delivers a seamless viewing experience by only absorbing light from the projector, resulting in an up to 80 percent better picture quality. We did test the projector on a blank white wall but found that even the slightest surface texture was a distraction, and ended up installing the 100-inch screen.
The projector includes a pair of 3D glasses, however, we’ve yet to use them given the lack of quality 3D movies available for home streaming.
