agreed... only two things I really dislike about my 55LHX are that it is 'only' 55" and some blooming when viewed off-center. That's OK, makes it easier to wait for 65 or 77" OLEDs to come down in...

Yes, was referring to the DLP tech... have seen many around here equating it to JVC e-shift and asserting it is not true 4K/UHD. As long as the image on screen is as I desire, I do not really care...

As long as the result on screen is true UHD and supporting WCG and (hopefully) HDR, does it matter what resolution the imaging device is? As long as the pixels displayed on screen are UHD, with no...

I think most (including myself) are choosing between the $5k 75" Sony and the $5K 65" LG OLED. Will need to see both in person before deciding... if the Sony is 'good enough', size wins out. if not,...

Absolutely... a bit pricey compared to DLP-link, but can be done. The issue with passive (any passive) is the extinction ratio of the polarized glasses... there will be some level of cross-talk. I...

Just to be clear, the Runco LightStyle line (LS-1/3/5) is NOT short throw. The optional 'short-throw' lens is 1.56-1.86 throw ratio (vs 0.69-0.83 on the benq w1080st... the runco most likely goes...
