Since this is going to be a big purchase, I tend to over analyze, rethink, over analyze, rethink and then start over.
My apologies to the JTR thread, I seemed to have derailed it a bit. Carry on with the sub talk.
No apologies needed; we LOVE talking about toys
Anyway, I have JVC projector in my hometheater for around 20 years now, and Pioneer Kuro 60" plasma in living room.
Any movies, sports, shows on the projector TRANSFORMS
the experience. The room however must be very dark, the darker the better. There is no way around this - must be dark.
Any LED or OLED will kill the projector when it comes to brightness and PQ in case of OLED, but... the experience will not be the same primarily because of the small size. The only advantage is for watching news in a bright room, as projector is not nearly as convenient and does not look good in a bright room.
Every time I'm at Best Buy, I am completely mesmerized by the picture quality and "blackness" of the OLED's. To the point that I wish my Kuro would stop working.
So if you could have a dark room or plan to watch movies mostly in evening etc., go for the projector, you will never go back. Ideally, get an OLED for the living room LOL.
