The PX2’s 2,000,000:1 contrast and wide color gamut appeal to cinephiles, but the 2400-lumen brightness is below average, and the 60Hz refresh rate and 34-ms input lag won’t impress gamers.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The Hisense PX2 is a mid-range ultra-short-throw laser projector released in 2023. Like some of the best projectors for gaming and home cinema, it uses a 3-laser DLP system. It delivers true UHD 4K resolution and a wide color gamut, covering a claimed 107% of the BT.2020 color space. Input options include HDMI 3, USB 2.0, HDMI eARC for digital surround sound, and Ethernet. The PX2 has Bluetooth connectivity and is WiFi capable with WiFi 5. It’s compatible with HDR10+ and HLG HDR formats and supports Dolby Vision.

The brightness output is 2400 ANSI lumens. The throw distance is 11 to 19 inches, and the image size is 90 to 130 inches. Like many top ultra-short-throw projectors, it comes with electronic autofocus and automatic keystone correction to maintain a sharp image. However, there’s no lens shift feature.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Hisense PX2-Pro is a great value for cinephiles prioritizing image quality in an ultra-short-throw projector. It isn’t as bright, at 2400 lumens, as some competitors, but delivers 2,000,000:1 contrast for deep blacks and vivid shadow detail. Its 107% BT.2020 color gamut is wider than ⅔ of tested projectors. Competitive gamers may find its 34-ms input lag and 60Hz max refresh rate limiting.

Autofocus works well, but the PX2 lacks lens shift and optical zoom. Input options are good, though WiFi connectivity could be better, as it uses the older WiFi 5 standard. Internal speakers provide stereo but aren’t audiophile quality for a true home theater experience. The PX2 offers eARC and analog audio out for surround sound systems.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Good image quality
    • Movies will look impressive thanks to good contrast with a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, ahead of 2/3 of all tested projectors, meaning deep blacks and outstanding shadow performance

    • Wider color gamut than ⅔ of tested projectors with 107% BT.2020 color space coverage

  • 4K resolution
    • True UHD imagery with 8 million on-screen pixels

    • Great detail and minimal rainbow or motion-processing artifacts

Reason to Avoid

  • Brightness is average
    • Its 2400-lumen output is average for tested projectors but lower than competing premium home cinema models

  • Average input lag
    • The rated 34-ms input lag is about average for all projectors and substantially slower than the 8-10 ms input lag that gaming projectors deliver

  • No lens shift or optical zoom
    • While the autofocus and digital keystone adjustment features work well, they don’t enable as much flexibility as optical zoom and mechanical lens shift functions would

Compared to the BenQ Tk700sti, the Hisense PX2 has a lower brightness of 2400 lumens vs 3000 lumens but much better overall image quality with fewer rainbow artifacts and better detail. The Hisense has much more contrast, with a dynamic 2,000,000:1 ratio, while the BenQ is limited to 10,000:1. The BenQ is more gaming-focused, with a much lower lag time of 16 ms at 4K 60Hz compared to 34 ms at 4K 60Hz. Our BenQ TK700STi review has the rest of the story. For a very different BenQ model, see our BenQ HT2060 review.

The Hisense PX2 has superior brightness compared to the Hisense C1, with 2400 lumens instead of 1600 lumens. The PX2 has a much shorter throw ratio of .25:1 compared to 1.2:1, enabling placement much closer to the screen. Both models use 3-laser DLP technology, delivering 4K resolution and 2,000,000:1 dynamic contrast.

The Samsung Premiere LSPT9, a competing 3-laser DLP projector, offers more brightness, with 2800 lumens vs. 2400, and a more powerful built-in audio system with 4.2 channels and 40W compared to 2.1 channels and 30W. Dynamic contrast is an equal 2,000,000:1, and both projectors offer UHD 4K resolution. See our Samsung Premiere LSP9t review for more details. Or, for a different option, check out our review of the Xgimi Horizon Pro 4K.
