It was the reason I was initially selling my VT60 since everything we now view at night is on the projector.
Does the VT60 have better pq, it sure does but watching something with great color accuracy, great motion, a clean sharp picture with a very cinematic feel on a 100" screen from 9.5" feet away is a whole other experience. Cost of the projector, $700.
Now thinking to spend $3-$4K on a 55" TV, the thought would never even cross my mind. I would probably even go with a 70" - 75" LED before doing that.
If I was wealthy, and needed a TV, I would most definitely by a 4K OLED 65" or larger to have in my home but those are a little out of my budget.
This is my dilemna. I absolutely adore my VT60 but I'm keenly aware that at 55" it's certainly not the experience our 82" provides upstairs. I'm not opposed to a projector but not sure if I could squeeze one into the space I use as my media/viewing room. In retrospect I feel like I should have made more of an effort to incorporate a FP. At a certain point a physical display just becomes too large for the room-- thus the 55". One of the most exciting things-- and often overlooked benefit-- of OLED is it's insanely thin profile. The 55" LG is 30lbs.
I'm hoping that a pencil thin 70"+ 1080p flat
OLED will be available in the near future that I can simply hang on my wall.
What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...
