With its class-leading brightness, the Optoma UHD38 delivers stunning, 4K HDR images at any time of the day.

Best in class brightness for ‘any time’ viewing
With its class-leading 4000 lumens brightness, the UHD38 produces a bright, natural picture even during daylight conditions with curtains or blinds open. Now you can enjoy big screen entertainment at any time of the day, without having to keep the sun out. The 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio keeps the picture textured and full of depth.

Big screen entertainment in crystal-clear UHD 4K
What better way is there to watch your favourite movies, TV and gaming than on a giant screen! It’s not just big, though, the UHD38 offers pin-sharp detail, too. Delivering over eight million pixels, Ultra HD 4K resolution brings four times more detail than Full HD. This gives you a sharper, richer and more life-like picture. It also means you’ll get the best from UHD 4K streaming services, such as Netflix and UHD 4K gaming.

See the picture ‘pop’ with HDR
With HDR10 and HLG compatibility, the UHD38 is the ideal match for your UHD Blu-ray player and other 4K HDR video sources. HDR not only offers deeper blacks, brighter whites and more vibrant colours, but also subtler images, too. So what looks like an area of solid black on an inferior projector, is shown to have shade and texture, previously unseen.

Turbocharge your gaming experience
A trio of features make the UHD38 perfect for gaming. 1080p 240Hz smooth motion gives fluid motion and reduced delay – making fast-moving games a less nerve-racking experience. Game Mode optimises the projector’s contrast to produce vivid detail and maximum contrast – perfect for spotting the danger lurking in the shadows. With input lag reduced to as little as 4.5ms, you can be assured lightning-fast response times.

True colour
The UHD38 is capable of reproducing the Rec.709 colour gamut, the international HDTV standard to guarantee accurate reproduction of cinematic colour - exactly as the director intended. Enjoy watching films and TV shows and playing games with stunning colours in any environment.

Flexible connectivity, including twin HDMI sockets
Featuring twin HDMI sockets, you can connect a UHD Blu-ray player and video streamer. For older sources, the UHD38 also comes with a VGA input – perfect for laptops and PCs. Multi-room connectivity is enhanced by an RS232 interface, plus there’s a 12v output for syncing with an electric screen. Audio is outputted via digital optical or analogue 3.5mm sockets.

USB power – plug in Smart TV
Thanks to the built-in USB power outlet you can power your source device. Ideal for powering Smart TV dongles, such as the Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Roku or NOW TV, the UHD38 makes adding Smart TV cheap and easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good gaming and 4k projector I bought this projector for 2 reasons. 1) In order to get the maximum performance from the PS5, I needed a 4k projector that could handle frame rates at 120hz. 2) I used to watch sport on my previous projector that was capped at 24hz, and would cause suboptimal viewing. The UHD38 solves both of my requirements and I cannot fault it so far. There are some review that are disappointed in the lower frame rate required to support 4k but for gaming this is not significant and the input lag is still minimal if your concern is playing online. And for the enjoyment of fluid sports, it does the job perfectly. The minimum you will get is 1080p with 120hz which is good enough for me. Not many people can say they watch 120hz HD sport on a 100inch screen. Plus, RS even managed to sort something more reasonable on the price considering I found it cheaper elsewhere. I will never buy a projector from anywhere other than RS. They have always been such a great company to deal with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great projector I didn't know anything about projectors before I purchased this. I got some advise from the guys at RS, told them my preferred budget and room size and ended up with this. I am very happy with the result. I find that it does take a while (up to a minute) to warm up. Maybe that's normal? I found that it does need a dark room. In a dark room the brightness is good, the colours are good and it's a nice, clear picture (better than it looks in my photo where the camera is dealing with low light). There are three mounting holes on the base (I would have been 25% happier with four) but there is also a moulding which is probably designed to tidy the cables but can be used to provide an emergency attachment in case the mount fails. The screen in my photo is 120" (and yes it is a very cheap screen, only bought to set the projector up with) and the projector is just under 13' away from it. My son uses the projector for gaming (FIFA mainly) and has no complaints about lag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Early Days, But Seems To Be A Massive Step Up... I bought the Optoma UHD38 over 2 weeks ago from, Richer Sounds, Edinburgh. I bought this as a replacement for my first ever projector, a £70 Yaber V2 off Amazon. Whilst that was a good starter projector, it was lacking in many ways. I tried stepping up to a higher quality one, Yaber again, on Amazon again - around £250 mark. There were some major improvements with this one, however the big, and boy... do I mean big, problem was the operating noise! After investigating a little deeper it seems the only way to get a projector with better specs combined with a low fan noise is to spend this kind of money. You won't be disappointed. Before buying any projector, including this one I recommend you do your homework to avoid wasting money and time. Familiarise yourself with all of the features and how it would work with the set up you currently have or want... Fannoise, 4D Keystone correction etc. are very important to me. That is how I picked this one - and I am VERY happy with my choice. Apart from a few small hickups Richer Sounds were very helpful and extremely knowledgable on all aspects to do with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Optima projector. Straight swap into ceiling mount for my old Panasonic projector. Picture at 4K is superb but even lower definition are great. Fed by Denon 4700 also from Richersounds.
