Watching 3d through a passive oled system that produces the same image imax produces at the theater is sheer breathtaking. Anything else is just an attempt to lie to yourself.
Sure you can go to a drive-in and watch a movie that is 100's of feet across and say the immersion is great, but when's the last time you went to one? How big is too big? My answer is when my eyes can't follow all the action on the screen(when I'm sitting 10 feet from a 12 ft. screen), or when the picture is not the best it can be.
Just look at all the trouble tv projection owners go to to get a good picture that isn't all washed out unless they are in a blackened cave. I have not seen one oled owner say EVERY movie they watch was not wonderful on their system, and that they were going back to watch old 3d movies that they originally did not like. By the same token it is amusing to listen to tv projector owners gripe about no 3d effects, ghosting, too dim, glasses not working, etc. and blame it on movie, director, etc.
Before you cast dispersions on something maybe you should give it a try first? After looking at large oleds I have been very unimpressed with projector tv and all its flaws. I could go on and on about why projector tvs are dinosaurs, but what's the point; its like trying to convert someone to your religion. You like your big 1960's hemi and I like my new lamborghini aventador. Just don't try to convince me I won't eat you alive on a race track.
Of course my 49" is 4K. I said it was in my post. But 4K really isn't important if we're discussing 3D, which isn't 4K yet.
On my 49" 4K or my 140" projector, I didn't say that these were the same experience or better. You read way more into my post that what was written. Slow down a little when you read. If you consider the fact that the 77" OLED is $8k you have to consider what's worth it and what isn't because I consider that to be a lot for a TV, the most I ever spent was about 4500 and I will never spend that much again.
I mentioned sitting a little closer on a smaller flat panel if you just want a more immersive experience which is really the only reason to go larger with a 77" when you can save a few grand and get a 65", that is if you can even find one now. Those that want a more immersive view can move forward and everyone else further back, best of both worlds. Again, to a point because of crosstalk. I can sit 6 feet on my 49", can you sit that close with 3D on a 77", I seriously doubt it. No it's not OLED just regular 4K LED, but I only paid 400.00 so it's not really a comparison, just saying if you want bigger on these smaller screens, just scoot up a little, it's cheaper!
There are numerous reports on OLED issues with burn-in and crosstalk and both of these are causes for concern whether it's a $1000 display or $8k display, I would want to know if these are going to be problems. And yes there are already several dedicated threads here just about these issues. Burn-in would be a flat out return for me but since you can only buy these online now that could be an issue if you have to pay return shipping, usually buyer pays for return shipping on Amazon with warranty returns and what if burn-in doesn't happen until after the warranty? And crosstalk, there's nothing worse for 3D than crosstalk and that's been a complaint on flat screens and now even worse on OLED panels.
I didn't say projection TV, I said projector and it's really a matter of preference. To me 77" is just too small at least for movies. I have a 65" flat screen up stairs and that's fine for casual viewing but movies I like bigger and view movies at 140" and 10' distance, doesn't mean everyone will like that, but that's my preference. 77" is just too small. I realize PQ on OLED is better but it's also dimmer too than a regular LED screen so there's that, and screen size it's not possible to sit that close with passive panels, you get crosstalk.
