Pros & Cons

Pros

Good and bad. Generally a good first attempt with a couple of issues to fix. Update Nov 16, 2020: Samsung finally reached out to me and a member of their engineering team who works on these projectors called. Clearly knowledgeable. We are working on the focus issue and how to resolve, if possible. Seen some improvement but still not "perfect". That said the LSP7T is far better than the Optoma P1 or P2 and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone vs any of the other sub-4k USTs on the market. Update Nov 6, 2020: Now going on 4 hours spent trying to find a Samsung technical representative that handles these projectors. Spoke to over 10 reps, transferred every time and none say they know anything about these UST projectors. Constant run around and there is NO WAY to reach anyone other than overseas who reads from a script. Original review: I received the projector on October 24th. So far the experience has been pretty good but there are a few issues that I have with the projector that Samsung needs to address before I can rate this thing "5 stars" for the money. First the good: 1. Vivid picture with good colors for a projector. I can compare this to the Optoma P1 and P2 and say that it has better picture quality imo, not by a huge amount but enough to give it an edge. 2. Software platform is rock solid as you would expect from Samsung. Again, comparing to Optoma it's a night and day difference. 3. Connection/HDMI stability is also super rock solid with no issues whatsoever on a variety of sources. In my configuration I'm using a Denon AVC8500H connected to a CAAVO Control Center (and also with the Caavo removed) with multiple sources tested at 4k 60hz and lower resolutions: Xbox One X, Nvidia Shield Pro, Fire TV Stick 4k and Cube, Nintendo Switch and W10 PC with Geforce 2080ti at 4k 60hz. All ran without a hitch. Great! 4. Used with an Elite Screens CLR (not the 2 or 3, just the CLR). Great combo. Daytime (slightly light controlled room) and night both looked great (with nighttime obviously looking fantastic). 5. Fan noise is non-existent. Completely silent. 6. Projector turns on and shuts down perfectly with CEC control. 7. Start up time is in seconds (haven't directly timed it but I would put it around 10 seconds). Very good imo. Cons: 1. Focus issues at the corners and edges from mid to top. It's enough to be distracting on content with text, lines or other details where sharpness is important. I'm working on contacting Samsung about the issue. 2. Some shadow crushing in live content especially in scenes that are generally darkly lit. Not "bad" but as with the focus enough to be distracting. Could be due to calibration but I think it's the nature of the projector. It is not enough for me to dislike the projector it's just something I wish was better. Overall I like the projector more and more as I use it, especially when comparing to the Optoma units I had previously (the P1 and P2). However the focus issue needs addressed and imo should not be present in a $3300 projector. I will update once I hear back from Samsung. Lastly I may move up to the LSP9T at some point depending on what I hear back from Samsung on the focus issue and how much better the blacks/shadows might be on the more expensive unit.

Review of 120 and 130. 130 is amazing. its good. Gaming does not have noticeable delay, but alot of these things are broken. Read the reviews. Mine came to my home and the 2nd hdmi port loses signal. Now the sound keeps cutting out. Samsung need to work the bugs out. I herd the 130 one is better built. I like this projector alot and I'm going to see if the 130 is better. If so im keeping it. But alot of them are defective. Be aware. Up date. I bought the 130. I got it used because 6,500 was just too much. All in all after taxes I paid 6000. Still high. Now. The three laser will blow you away. I've always wanted a projector that just did not have that washed out look. I want the colors to be as vivid as an oled or a qled. This thing is way more vivid than an oled. imagine having a laser pointer and point it at the wall. Those are your colors. You have laser colors. Deep vivid saturated blues, red,greens purple and the black are deep. Im keeping it. Now there are issues. The hdmi port has not gone out but the sound has stopped once in a while in the middle of a movie. The sound on the 130 is incredible. Oh my gosh this thing as speakes. Way way louder then the 120. I have gone through projector and projector to find the right one. I notice those small things that normal customers don't. There is no ghosting when playing games. The input lag is good. I dont know what it is but its very very reasonable. If you owned the optimal p2, its better then that one. I was impressed by the p2 as well but the game input lag was ridiculous. Oh and the Epson ls5000. Thise colors are sooo washed out but game lag is almost not even there. The ls3000 has better colors but you won't get a 4k picture. Its pretty crisp though and the colors are good. Not as good as the optima p2. You want amazing looking colors deep black crisp picture and a banging sound system the samsung is it. Its good. Samsung needs to iron out the kinks though. Once they do. Wow just wow.

Awesome Projector. This projector is awesome!! Like, super awesome. All of my other TV's are Samsung, huge plus that I can turn on this unit and it works just like the others, choose Amazon/Spectrum/Movies/other apps. Set up was super easy. I'm not sure how big my screen is (110" maybe). It fit perfectly with only adjusting the front two legs. Picture is super clean (better than my old projector). Considering I don't know how to set up anything in my media room, and all the components have been sitting there for years (my ex took half of the system), it was a huge bonus that all I had to do was plug this in. I can't say enough how ecstatic I am with this purchase. Price - is not cheap, but if I bought a high-end projector, and hired someone to set the system up, probably having to upgrade other components, and waited for everything to get set up properly, I probably would've spent the same amount of $ anyway, and a lot more time getting it set up. Hopefully it will eventually work with maybe some wireless speakers if I upgrade my wall speakers/components, but for the time being I'm delighted.

Excellent Picture with Great Smart TV features. I was looking for an UST projector and really wanted the LG HU85LA projector which is generally considered one of the best UST projectors out there, but was hard pressed to spend that much and settled on this as a more cost effective approach. If you don't care about the smart TV features and are just going to use it with an Apple TV or something, then you'd probably be better off with the VAVA or an Optoma. I like having only one remote though and think Android TV sucks. I was a little worried about color accuracy as it uses a color wheel instead of 3 lasers like the LG, but I honestly don't think I'd be able to tell a difference. The picture looks great. The image quality does suffer a little bit in super dark scenes, especially in the middle of the day, but then a brightly lit scene will come on and just completely blow you away, so for the increase in size I'd say it is worth it. I bought this with the VAVA 100" light rejecting screen which does a great job of making the screen usable in the day time. That being said, the picture looked pretty dang good on my extremely dark green wall in dim light. I've played some turned based games on my switch on the projector and haven't noticed any lag, but that's hardly a great test. If your into twitchy shooters get a TV with a high refresh rate and lower lag. One thing that is annoying with these UST projectors is they need to be low to the ground and don't leave room for a sound bar. Luckily I found a great stand that is low enough and has a space for a sound bar (And can be even lower if you leave off the bottom legs) on WayFair, Wolla TV Stand for TVs up to 65": https://www.wayfair.com/furniture/pdp/zipcode-design-wolla-tv-stand-for-tvs-up-to-65-ar2314.html?piid=32507645 Overall I'm extremely happy with my purchase and have not had any issues with it so far. The picture is bright, colorful, and huge. The interface is easy to use and has almost every app I could want (No NBA TV sadly, but that's an NBA issue as it is missing from most smart TVs).

Never had to call tech support. The media could not be loaded. This is a great projector ever. Easy to use, work just like Samsung smart TV. Images quality is excellent. Worth the price. Always got a lot of compliments. I love this project and it fits 145" screen in my basement. I've been using it for 7 months already, no problem at all.

My experience with 7t. Have been using the 7t model for a month in my apartment living room. Even paired it with a good soundbar. Had to return the soundbar last week as the sound from the projector is very good for most viewing. Have paired it with my Bluetooth headset for a more refined sound experience. I project it on to my white wall (No ALR screen yet) and it is very good even when it is not fully dark. Note, all projector images will be washed out if you have bright ambient light. The most important thing about this projector is it is super easy to setup, just connect to power socket and internet and you are good to go! Samsung App Store has all the major apps for streaming that you can download. I have now connected my cable box as well (watch mainly local games) If you are wondering 7t vs 9t, would recommend 7t - with the price difference of 2.5k to 3K you can get a great ALR screen and have money left for a sound system as well! Off course, there are cheaper Chinese models with greater specs on paper than Samsung, it all comes down to App Store and user experience. I find Samsung products to be more reliable and closer. Using this projector is lot like their TV and tablet/Phone experience.

Cons

Do not take your chances. Just as many other negative review described, I also received mine dead on arrival. Plugged it to wall, nothing happens and power turns off by itself. Contacted Amazon support for replacement and was told that - I need to wait 3 - 5 business days for someone in their team to contact me to troubleshoot it over the phone then if they cannot fix it they will process the return Contacted Samsung tech support who confirmed that the unit is defective but told me that - I need to ship back the units to their service center for them to repair it. They won’t provide replacement unless they first try fixing it few times. He, then, said he personally wouldn’t want his brand new unit repaired to be used. He’d rather return it and get a different working unit. But I’m stuck with this garbage that Amazon wouldn’t even let me return or replace immediately but rather have to wait for them to “verify” this is a defective unit. Should’ve known not to take my chances when there were significant number of other shoppers receiving a defective unit. Save yourself from the headache. Do not take your chances

Defective on arrival!!!! Just received my lsp7t projector and after 45 min the picture shut off and will not turn back on. The system will shut down every time I power the unit on. Clearly Samsung has a bad batch of these as I am the 2nd person to experience this issue. See other reviews. The image is awesome but if it doesn’t turn on what is the point!

Samsung vs Optoma P2. This is my second UST projector in 4 months. The first was the Optoma CinemaX P2. The Optoma was returned due to unreliability with HDCP handshaking causing snow and cycling picture blackout. The Samsung is a more compact unit with a far better menu system. The power up of the Samsung only takes a maximum of 10 seconds vs 1 to 2 minutes on the Optoma. The Optoma had a better geometric correction than the Samsung but the overall picture quality and sharpness of the Samsung is superior, as is Samsung's entire menu system. I only gave it 2 stars because after a week of normal operation, the unit now only powers up for about a minute before displaying a "System Error---Due to a system error, Projector will be turned off automatically in a moment(5 sec)". I tried several cycles and hard resets to no avail. This unit will be shipped back and exchanged for the same model and I will give it another shot. Even though the Samsung is rated at 2200 lumens and the Optoma at 3000...the overall brightness uniformity was better on the Samsung and actually appeared noticeably brighter than the Optoma. I hope that the next unit is not plagued with this system issue and is hopefully just an anomaly and not a larger issue of quality control.

Stress test or be stuck with a broken projector. Stress test your device early so you can return it if there are any issues. I didn't use it frequently when I first got it, but over 2 months the image flickers more and more. The manufacturer's warranty that they recommended "didn't apply" anymore as well so now Im stuck with a $6000 failing device.

Chromatic aberration. The projector is a beautiful unit and the lens design allows it to be really close to the screen. Unfortunately it had either terrible chromatic aberration or the lasers were misaligned because I could plainly see the red, green and blue laser images. All white text had a blue line above and red line below. There was no setting or control to adjust the different laser alignments. On organic/natural scenes the colors were absolutely gorgeous but I just couldn’t get past the way the lasers were misaligned on vertical lines or sharp edges. I returned the unit for a refund. This may have been a problem with just this unit but I didn’t want to take a chance. In future I would want to see a demo in person before buying a projector like this.

Dead on arrival. There are quite a few 1-star reviews stating their product is dead on arrival. Mine is too. The fan is running, sound is playing, but no picture at all. As 10% of the total reviews is for dead on arrival, I am seriously wondering the QC of Samsung. BTW, if you call Samsung, their representative may not know what this is, and you have to ask them to get permission from their supervisor to access this product.
