Yes, you certainly should see the advantage of 4K sitting at those distances (~0.7 to 0.8 screen widths).

It's interesting, though, how our viewing impressions don't scale precisely as a given...

Maybe I'm batman: I put ~ 2000 hrs/yr on my projector (Sony 1100), and am now on my 4th lamp. (The other 3 are still functional and serve as backups.) I'm (semi)-retired, though; wouldn't...

Yes, as said above, it is good for 2 lamps. One has to buy it within 30s of buying the pj (as noted above), and it is good for 3 yrs. Since I run over 2000hrs/yr on my pj's, I have no trouble...

The reason I didn't go for a 2.35 screen is as follows.
The widest screen I can fit in my room is 12 ft, which I wanted for 2.35 pics. But a 2.35 screen this wide is only 61"H, and it...

Yes, I'm at the min throw distance; my room is only 17 ft long, so to do 12 ft W I have to be at the min throw (which is good because it gives max lumens). My pj is on a stand at minimum height to...

Amazon lists a LG 84" 4K led for $6500. Not OLED, but would make Mark a reasonable 'stop-over'.

I have a 2.0:1 screen (12ft x 6ft) and love it. I project hdtv (on Sony 1100) as 17:9, and zoom the pic to fill the height, which leave an 8" wide black bar on one side (that I mask with a panel I...

Agree. I like the 'great pic' experience, but ~1.0 SW (or slightly less) is about as close as I like it.

This sounds about right to me. I sit ~ 11 ft from a 11 ft wide screen (12 ft wide in 2.35). Sony advocates being able to sit at 1.6 PH (picture heights) with 4K.

Are your sure that 1.3 gain will be enough? I have a 144" wide 2.35 screen, HP2.4, with a Sony 1100 pj. Not sure I would like it less bright than it is.

Note that Art uses the 1100's Reality Creation at 20 (and sometimes 40), yet Sony owners (e.g., Mark H) usually recommend having RC 'on' but set very low, no more than 5. ???

At 5 picture heights viewing distance I can't believe one would see any difference between 1080p from 720p (or even 480). This would be 30 ft from my 6 ft H screen!
