1. I've tried BOTH a single chip and my own LCD PJ on the screen, and while yes, the DLP is sharper, either yield about the same results re SDE and detail at about 20 feet for me. Moot.
2. Never said it was.
3. Oh my. 32 degrees is "way smaller" than the viewing angle at which you view your tv? Without getting into the definition of "way", dare I ask your screen size and viewing distance? Because for a 50" television just SEVEN feet supplies you with a "lesser" viewing angle (under 30 with my quick math but I could be wrong). Don't even answer, I'm sure you're one of those watching your 50 or 60" television from 5 feet away...you know, like less than the length of a twin bed? Good for you. But do realize that you're in a tiny minority. TINY. Did I mention tiny?
Onward, I don't care about "most" claims". Please- at the very least- offer some modicum of precision if you're going to even begin to criticize how or whereto I am referencing my claim(s). That's just good sense and courtesy. How one would even begin to judge "most claims" on this massive site is a bit hilarious to begin with. What you likely mean is: "versus the ones I and others BELIEVE to be true" lol.
BTW: the "research" and "claims" you presented were- wait for it- COMPILED BY A COMPANY WITH A VESTED INTEREST IN MANUFACTURING AND MARKETING 4K PRODUCT AND DISTRIBUTION. Which- oh by the way- also indicates that for a 50" screen 1080 is NEVER "ENOUGH", lmao. Not at 10, 20, 30, or even FORTY FEET! Who knew?! Seems like a pretty reliable "source" though so thanks for the laughs, I mean inclusion. At least it's good to know we're "safe" with 4k at 25 feet on a 50 incher...whew!!! Until it's time to sell 8K anyway, right?
Yeah, about 99% of those on this site, ok, closer to 100, but no biggie, realize the 160" image offered up by a PJ is inferior to that of a well-performing 50-60" flat panel. Moving along...
Great to hear about your entire audience being perfectly comfortable less than a screen width away...I guess we- inexplicably so- happen to know (and invite) polar opposite population bases. Although you can never be certain a percentage will EVER "complain" about anything, even provoked.
My impressions still stand I look forward to experiencing the inevitable (and hopefully, somewhat equitable) side-by-side comparisons that will evolve in the coming months.
