I will scroll the forum to find answers
"Pops" depends on a couple of factors. If you're really trying to compare on even ground, then look at a projector's output with it's image as the same size of the TV you're looking at: shrink your projector image down to 55" if that's the size of TV you're looking at... you should notice that projectors "pop" slightly less, the larger of an image they're projecting, but at least they can do it! Personally, I don't want to dish out the bucks for an 80" TV - which would still be smaller than what I use my projector at.
If it's a 4K TV, look at it showing a BluRay - there's so little 4K content available, it'll be a while before you're actually watching much of anything on 4K. It looks sweet seeing 4K demos on a show floor, but that's not what you'll be watching when you use it.
As mentioned by a few of us, DLP projectors may be a better technology for contrast but at the risk of seeing the "rainbow effect" ...not everyone sees this, but it might bug you if you do. See if you can find some showrooms that have projector - although they typically only have top of the line equipment mounted.
Hopefully that helps, but try to read lots of online (or magazine) reviews on this site and others.
