Super-smooth and detailed images come naturally to the Optoma UHD42.

Clearly better, with 4K UHD resolution
With over eight million pixels, Ultra HD 4K resolution brings four times more detail than Full HD, delivering sharper, life-like images and richer colours. A further advantage of UHD 4K resolution is that, because the pixels are smaller, you can sit much closer to the screen. This makes the UHD42 ideal for rooms that previously might have been too small for a projector to work at its best.

Reveal hidden detail with HDR10 and HLG
Compatible with HDR10 video, the UHD42 lets you see far more detail and texture. HDR enhances the brightest and darkest sections of scenes – letting you see detail in what was previously a solid block of colour. It also makes the rest of the colour spectrum appear more natural, giving an even greater sense of ‘being there’. The UHD42 is also compatible with HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) – the high dynamic range developed for broadcasting.

Class-leading brightness for lights-on viewing
Boasting an outstanding brightness figure of 3400 ANSI Lumens, the UHD42 not only offers bright and vivid colours but is also able to be used in many lighting conditions. Even during daylight conditions with curtains or blinds open, the Optoma produces a watchable and detailed picture – thanks to its sensational brightness.

Colour – just as it should be
The UHD42 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.

Colour Management System (CMS)
Display accurate life-like colours to best match your viewing environment. This unique feature provides you with the flexibility to fine-tune the colour settings to the Rec. 709 standard for optimal precision.

Wall Colour Adjustment for optimised colour
Although a dedicated screen is always going to give the best results, the UHD42 offers Wall Colour Adjustment for when this isn’t possible. Six options let you adjust the image to suit blackboard, light yellow, light green, light blue, pink and grey walls.

Vertical lens shift
Simplify installation with vertical lens shift, which provides a wider range of projector placement possibilities. This makes it easier to position the projector in your room and enables a wider range of screen size options.

Gaming advantage
A trio of features make the UHD42 perfect for gaming. 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 15.70ms, you can be assured lightning-fast response times.

Flexible connectivity, including twin HDMI sockets
Featuring twin HDMI sockets (one compatible with HDR), you can connect a UHD Blu-ray player and video streamer. For older sources, the UHD42 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
Another great feature is the handy USB power output. This is used to power USB-powered smart devices, such as the Google’s Chromecast or a Roku TV stick. Plug Chromecast, or similar, in and you’ll have easy access to smart video and TV services without the need for any other device or lengthy connection cables.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great projector I brought this nearly 2wewks ago really good projector

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product so far but poor service. I have used RS for a few years now but was disappointed with my current purchase as I was looking for an AV amp as well. This required a demonstration as I was not happy with my existing unit. RS sell the same speakers as I have so would have been ideal. However, having booked a demonstration I was contacted to be informed that the demo couild not go ahead due to cabling problems in the shop which were built into the wall. A poor excuse, I'm afraid so I went to Sevenoaks in Manchester for an excellent demonstration and purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture Recently bought this after researching for a while. I'm more than happy to report it is excellent; fine picture and easy to set up, with enough brightness to watch with background ambient lighting. I would have preferred 2 HDMI 2.2 connections, having to rely on Optical out to my Amp for sound which does have a minor lag. Sam from RS telesales was excellent, thank you Sam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up. Great picture Bought this to create a cinema atmosphere. Still in the process of setting up a proper sound system to go with it but used it to watch dvds, blu rays and internet streaming. Really impressed with the image from all sources (including the internet when my broadband connection is working properly). We do experience some fan noise which was expected and is not disturbing. Let’s face it you can’t have a projector without a fan! I am also happy with the brightness of the image given my screen width is 2.3 metres. Even with this screen size you can view images in daylight but of course the intensity of the image is enhanced if you either reduce the screen size or cut out ambient light. This is my first projector purchase and was made on the strength of a friend’s recommendation and demonstration of an older Optoma HD143X. I would happily make the same purchase decision again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value 4K Home Cinema and Gaming Projector Bought this projector as a replacement for an Epson TW5100. Placement was a major consideration when choosing a new projector, so throw ratio, zoom and lens shift were all important factors, along with 4K and 3D capabilities. Also, the physical dimensions had to be taken into account due to the actual location. I had the Epson sitting on a custom built shelf above the viewing position and this is where I originally placed the Optoma. However, this highlighted the new projector's shortcomings when compared to the Epson. I was not able to move the image down sufficiently to match the 92" ceiling mounted screen. I solved this by purchasing a ceiling mount for the projector, and once inverted, I could position the image on screen using the tilt of the mounting bracket along with the projector lens shift. Due to a slightly different throw ratio and zoom, the image does not fully fill the screen, like the Epson, probably 88" diagonal. The image itself is excellent. Playing a UHD Bluray of "Earth - One Amazing Day" on a Sony UBP-X700 through an Onkyo TX NR686 AV Receiver, the colours were vibrant with plenty of detail. "Division 2" on PS4 Pro ran like a dream, thanks to the 240Hz gaming mode. For 3D I had to purchase some DLP Link 3D glasses (different standard to the Epson), but these connected instantly to the projector, and there was plenty of depth to the image on "The Hobbit - Battle of the Five Armies". Can't comment on the sound quality. Using this in a Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 set up, the projector's built in speaker was never going to be an issue. Having only had this a week, I haven't played around with the various modes and settings, but my initial thoughts are that this is a very capable 4K projector, and a must for serious big screen gaming. I assume that it will be a great partner for the upcoming PS5. Also, great value for money, and would have warranted 5 stars if there was more adjustment of the physical image size and position. Horizontal Keystone adjustment would have been handy, along with the included vertical adjustment. This may probably not be an issue for most people, but something to consider if your placement options are limited.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bright, compact,fairly easy to setup and configure I replaced a previous generation 4k projector which was playing up with this unit. The price point and feature set are ideal, the picture is bright and sharp, and the faster refresh rate reduces the rainbow effect of DLP quite a lot. There are some firmware issues, a couple of times it has forgotten my settings when powered on, a couple of times there is a colour difference between the left and right half of the screen (a click of the right button to re-sync solves this), the actuator is noticeably noisier than previous models. The unit is small and could be considered a bit flimsy, the three bolts to secure to a projector mount are a bit of a faff, and with the smaller size and brighter output, the background noise of the unit is much worse than my previous model. Overall, the picture is bright and the niggles are acceptable, I’m sure a firmware update will solve the settings issue and the display issue, but should you have to do this for a unit that costs this much?
