Engadget Review

Short-throw laser projectors promise fewer compromises than long-throw models, and Optoma’s $3,700 CinemaX P1 delivers on that. It offers very high brightness, good contrast levels and excellent color accuracy, especially with HDR content. Best of all, you get an image up to 120 inches in size for a fraction the price of a comparable TV. With an ambient light rejecting screen, you can use it in the daytime with indoor light and still get a usable image. It also has a built-in sound bar that delivers a rich audio experience without the need for a separate home theater system. The biggest flaw is with the built-in streaming apps, which don’t work in 4K. However, that’s easily resolved with the purchase of a 4K streaming stick or 4K Blu-ray player.
