I recently bought some blockout roller blinds (these to be exact: and after installing them, had an epiphany that I could perhaps buy a UST projector to replace the TV and use these near-white blinds as a screen. Are there any cons to this and any gotchas I should be aware of?

Was also having a look at projectors and the Xiaomi UST 4k Laser TV Projector looked like good value - does anyone have one of these and how are you finding it?

It’ll like look flat and washed out ...


projrctor screens are “silver” coated and designed to reflect the light back to the viewer, a plain blind doesn’t do that

Also, UST projector screens are specifically designed for the purpose due to the acute angle that the image is projected from.

We do this with a small pico projector (Kodak). It’s not replaced iour small (32inch) TV for general use, but we fire it up for “movie night”, and use the BT headphone sharing from the Apple TV for audio. Works really well - we get effectively an 85-100 inch screen with no storage usage.

Would love to try it out but doubt there are any stores that would let you buy and try and if don't like, get a refund.
