Is There a Dearth of 85" flat panel sets?
I own a 3 year old then middle of the line 75" Samsung. I like it. I don't love it. I am building a new media room which will be quite large in comparison to my current living room where the 75" is. Current LR is 23' x 12'.
New room will be 23' x 23'.
I am seriously considering a projector and 120" screen but am very afraid I will not be happy with it. Friend of mine, in a light controlled basement with black surrounding his expensive screen, has a Epson 5030 projector. His picture is nothing to write home about. And my room will not be easily light controlled with a cathedral ceiling and two large dormers with windows.
So, I'm back to considering a flat panel. But having owned the 75, I want bigger. I want 85. I dislike curved screens.
I've looked at many sites and it seems there are maybe 3 or 4 to choose from. Am I missing something?
Am I also making a mistake in wanting that large by thinking that an upgraded 75" with SUHD will be a lateral move from what I have now? I figured if I got a projector and screen it would run me about 6 or 7k, so an 85 in the 7-8k range is not that much more of a stretch. I've seen the LG 86", which is almost 10k, but don't think it's worth it.
The LeEco looks good, but it's so hit and miss and the ability to get one seems like hitting lotto.
What is one to do?
