So I would like to know if it's better to switch to an UST projector (but I would like to have one be better than my current projector) to have a 100" image or to buy a 75" TV (There is a big bargain on the samsung 75qe900r in a store near me currently, but as it an exposition model it will not stay long).

What do you think it's the best ? (I watch lot of movie but also play lot of video games and it seems most UST projector have a very bad input lag).
Solal, I would definitely recommend going to a UST projector if it is in your budget. Ease of install and viewing immersion will be so much better than using the current projector you have or getting a bigger LCD TV.

UST projectors are getting better all the time but this projector we're discussing is on the high end so you may want to check out the Optoma offering or maybe Viewsonic and lastly the Chinese manufacturers.

Good luck.

Hi,



Thank you for the answer I'm using a projectors for more than ten years (for every things, gaming, movie or watching TV show), so it's true that it will be difficult to come back to a TV (but I was always at more than 4m from the wall). For the moment the only one that correspond to what I want is the LG because the xiaomi as too much latency to be used to play game (even the LG is not that great with 64ms). As I will not move until November, I have time to see how goods will the optoma and the viewsonic be, if there are not better at the input lag I should probably buy the LG and announce to my wife that I will spend 7000 euros for a projector and a screen (I was more thinking to spend around 3ke when I was looking for something new).
Anyway I'm really looking forward a technical review of this projector.

Overall a glowing review, but I'm more intrigued that he mentioned the new Optoma P1 is a dual laser like the LG...

If that's true, what a deal for the Optoma comparatively.

The Optoma is a single blue laser, Art was incorrect. I've sent him a message.

Great to finally get a proper review!

Now, all we need is an equivalent review of the Optoma P1. I am thinking there are a ton of people waiting with bated breath.

Personally, I am thinking that if the Optoma even has 85% of the performance of the LG, I will go with it. $3000 is far more palatable than double that figure.

I skimmed the article, but couldn't find out which screen they used? Can anyone with better reading comprehension than I have, chime in? Thanks!

LG is a 2716x1528x2 pixel shifter – using the larger .66″ chip.

I think that debate has been put to bed? Confirmed 0.66", I believe.

Correct, .66" confirmed. Art was incorrect again. 😢

It's not up on any of the projector calculators yet. But I wonder if since it's so close to the screen if it will be equivalent brightness to a 5000 lumens projector 18 feet away.

I don’t know about it being equal to 5,000 lumens. I can say that my current 795 lumen UST seems just as bright as my previous 1,200 lumen standard throw projector that was 11’ away.

These UST projectors seem to scream rear projection. I wonder what the problem is limiting that use. Seems like an easy increase in brightness.

Gesh I'm having such a hard time settling on a UST. I have so many pros and cons and I cant Prioritize them enough to figure out if I would be happy

First except for one UST projector I lose the ability to have a large screen. I'm stuck around the 120" area and now I'm not sure its worth the hassle over an 85" Flat Screen

Second, I lose the 2.39 possibility and use of a panamorph to achieve an incredible cinema experience.

And those are the 2 main reasons I want a projector in my living room

Pro though
I have very minimal design issues and mounting problems.
and wiring becomes incredibly easy.

So what I'm beginning to come to is that If i can deal with the mounting and wiring issues easily on the standard projector I would get a much better picture covering a much larger image.

I'm just having a hard time convincing myself I would be happy with 16:9 120" screen.

Why does that thing only comes in white if it's meant for HT? At least offer black option. And gold with black top
