Well they've drawn a line in the sand. To compete, everything like this will have to be a lot better or cheaper. I like the idea of an ambient light rejecting screen, they have been around for a while, but very expensive. Still, my screen and projector cost less than $1,500 4 years ago and it probably has another 4 years at the rate I'm going. At that point it will certainly be 4k or just skip it entirely and buy a couple of occulus rifts!

The potential for versatility is huge. Set it up in a living room for regular use and then move the projector for backyard movie night. Super short through lens also lends itself to business applications, taking it to a friend’s house for game night, etc. 1080p projector loaded like a TV with a screen that is better suited then most for non-light controlled environment for $8999…I would do it for $5999. $8999 for UHD I would consider.

I work on optical data networks and know that lasers don't wear out. Replacing bulbs in my LCOS projector and the DLP before it, ouch! Plus nothing beats a laser for color "purity".<br>If LG and others can develop this to the point of mass affordability, it's a game changer.<br>

At this late in the game - go 4K or go home! Oh, I forgot, that dang HDMI 2.0 and Video Codec are holding everybody up!
