But here’s the bad news. It’s lens system only allows a max of a 100”. At around 16,000 dollars MSRP, it just not worth it. You can get an 85” QLED TV for much less cost that will have MUCH better contrast and picture. If Hisense didn’t neuter the screen size it might might no be such nonsense (get it
). Seriously, why? They already have a duel laser version that can do 120”.
It's not the DLP mirror array (chip) that produces the color, it's either a color wheel, LED or laser producing the color, this one has one laser for each color so it doesn't need a color limiting color wheel and therefore can produce a much wider color space. Most of the 3 chip LCOS are bulb based (read limit color space) and the ones based on lasers are older and may not have had the REC2020 color space in mind when designing them.
As far as sizing on this new triple laser model, I've read up to 120" on some of the press releases, do you have a definitive source that its limited to 100"? They offer a 120" option on their dual laser PJ, not sure why this one would be limited to 100" and even at 100" you're getting almost 40% more picture over an 85" set! That's huge and definitely more immersive.
But LG doesn't currently offer an 85" OLED, they have the 77" current model and a 88" 8K model on the horizon which I guarantee will cost more than this Hisense UST by a long shot!
When it comes to big screens, 4K TVs have gotten less expensive, but anything approaching the Laser TV's 100 inches will still cost you a lot of money, into the tens of thousands of dollars. But a good projector can handle larger sizes with ease, and the Hisense 100L7T can project onto a screen 120-inches in size, and does so from only 7 inches away.
