My Optoma UHD50 stopped working over the weekend and rather than try to fix it, I think this is the perfect opportunity to upgrade my projector. So far it's between either Epson Home Cinema 5050UB & VAVA 4K, my budget is up to $3,500. I would appreciate any feedback and suggestions, thank you in advance.

Personally, I would get the JVC NZ3 Laser 4K. I own one in my HT room. I use it everyday. Hopefully it will last 25YR since it's Laser and I use Economy Lamp mode.

Optoma sucks. I used to own an Optoma PJ that required repair every year.

I've never heard of VAVA. :D

I would stick to the main brands - JVC, Sony, Epson, Vivatek.

All the UST laser Chinese projectors are so-so, at best. Lots of complaints about image quality compared to what you hear from Epson. So, no question, I would get the Epson 5050 in a second. The JVC is a nice option, feel free to shoot me a message if you want pricing. Likewise, the JVC RS540 may be right within your budget and would be a very significant upgrade over any of these options. Might need a couple hundred more, but not much, to get there.

No way I would get a UST 4K DLP model. The quality just isn't there yet.
