Optoma’s UHD300X projector does 4K and HDR for a relatively low asking price

How does wall-sized World Cup sound?

With a certain football tournament on the not-so-distant horizon, anyone not making the trip to Russia is going to want the optimum viewing experience – especially if they can’t be bothered with pub queues. A 4K projector ticks all the boxes, but cost is the usually the barrier. Enter Optoma’s UHD300X, which at £1,399.99 might be the cheapest way to get a 4K UHD cinema in your living room. HDR-compatible, it beams images with 2200 ANSI lumens of brightness and a 250,000:1 contrast. Vertical lens shift makes positioning the projector faff-free, and the two HDMI ports support the HDCP 2.2 standard. All of this would be useless if you were living in constant fear of the projector conking out mid-movie, but a 10,000-hour lamp life might even see you through most of the Fast and the Furious franchise. Pre-order now.

I'm fascinated by all things tech, but if you were going to leave me on a desert island, I'd probably ask for my Nintendo Switch, a drone, and a pair of noise-cancelling cans to block out the relentless seagull racket. When I'm not on Stuff duty you'll probably find me subscribing to too many podcasts, playing too many video games, or telling anyone who will listen that Spurs are going to win a trophy this season.
