I owned the 5050UB for 2 weeks before trading it in at Best Buy for the 6050UB. Was it worth it? Depends on how much value you put into the extras.
Both projectors are nearly identical. The only differences are as follows:
* 5050UB has a white housing, while the 6050UB has a black housing.
* 6050UB comes with a projector mount, extra bulb, longer warranty, and dust cover for the rear ports. The 5050UB does not have those extras, and the warranty is not as long.
* 6050UB has a claimed improvement in contrast over the 5050UB (1,200,000:1 vs 1,000,000:1). The internals are the same, but the lens on the 6050 may be slightly better to allow for this difference in contrast.
The projector is fairly easy to setup, and is very quiet.
In Eco mode I cannot hear it unless the room is dead silent, even then it's hardly noticeable.
In Medium mode, it's slightly louder but you will most likely not be able to hear it with any sound playing from your TV/Sound System.
On High mode the fan noise will be noticeable during quiet scenes in a movie and may be distracting to some.
Picture quality and contrast are very good, I've been highly impressed with many of the 4K disks I've watched. I can't say how this unit compares to a native 4k projector, but the image is very sharp & bright and there is a very notable difference between watching 1080p content and 4k content. You have control over how much 'up-scaling' the projector applies to the image, and control of tone mapping for HDR sources.
The projector automatically detects HDR, and will implement your chosen tone mapping settings to the image. When no HDR is detected, tone mapping is turned off.
No image smoothing or interpolation is allowed when you are in 4K / Enhancement mode. At the time of this review it can only be turned on when you are viewing a 1080p source and have disabled 4k Enhancement.
Gaming has been very good on this device, allowing for 4K and HDR if the console and game support it. I have not noticed any input lag, and reviews I've seen on the device show it's very gamer friendly in this regard.
The firmware is upgradable via a USB stick.
There is a lot of information on this projector, and the 5050UB on AVS Forums, so I suggest you do more research before making a purchase.
If you don't need all the extras, the 5050UB can be picked up for significantly less and provides a nearly, if not identical picture since they have the same internals. If you do want the extra bulb, mount, and other accessories, or you want your projector in black, the 6050UB is a solid choice. Another good alternative is the BenQ HT5550 if cost is a factor.
