For me, UST are meant for living hall or room setup. It is harder to take it seriously for videophile imo due to limited focus and uniformity points which pretty much limits what we can do...not forgetting the rudimentary CMS which really limits how much we can calibrate to get a good picture. But for everything else like watching World Cup or catching a Netflix or Youtube clips, this is more value for money compared to a gigantic OLED TV panel which could cost a bomb.

I will probably get one for my room setup in due course but I'm not rushing to get one any time soon.

The projection system is still a basically a reflective technology , it needs to be couple with a good screen which can help to counter act with ambient lights and also maintain a high resolution surface for its sharpness .

Ultra short throw ( UST ) are the best invention for projector as it is close to project a higher brightness and have a decent enough of clarity due to un even light path ( centre shorter than left and right ) .Lens likely to be plastics in order to make it cost effective and easier to manufacture .

Even there is the new type of screen call ALR screens to combine with it , it will not be able to beat TV image quality like brightness, sharpness , contrast and black level . These combi of UST Projector and ALR screens ( ONLY FIXED TYPE ) are meant to use in indoor light environment for best result .

Now conventional type with the new technologies of Brightness /HDRs / UHD the mid throw glass lens Home Theatre projector , will be able to give you the best big picture in the hall or dedicated room combine with Hi resolution projection screen ( Colour Tone or shade is individual preference ) . You have option to put a TV for daily News or Cartoon programme and Motorize screen in front for those days you have afternoon day off to catch up movies or play games . ( Calibrate 2 preset to Day mode & Night mode )

End of the day you can have a theatre experience / power point presentation trial / religious gathering ( cell group ) Karaoke / Football & Movie Theatre experience .

Basically you still have to close curtains , on air con and dim lights to have cooler eviroment for you as well as the electronics equipment .

Optoma P1.. Thankfully prices have come down dramatically from Sony's ridiculous VZ1000 pricing.  Hoping someone can launch one that can support 2.35:1 anamorphic aspect ratio

When Philips was the first one several years ago to introduce STP into local market with their ScreenNeo model, the introduction RRP was somewhere about $3.6k~$3.8k. The introduction of STP by Philips comes @ wrong time as 4K was on it's early penetration. Should ScreenNeo gets a warm response... Today's STP will be very competitively priced.

Am I right that the Optoma is using the same DLP chip as my Benq 5700?

Yes...it should be using the same 0.47" DLP chipset.
