how would you upgrade these two rooms?
I'm a millennial so cringe when I tell you I use no screen, I have white walls, I don't have curtains or light control, and I love that the projector has built in speakers... have you passed out yet?
so right now I'm using a LG HU80KA. I wanted something with more punch on the giant wall I display on. from what I gather reading all weekend white walls are the worst, bigger screen size is horrible to deal with, and no light control makes for a complete disaster , that sound about right? ok from what I gather the only upgrade worthwhile is to go more lumen??? is that correct? I will consider painting the wall a color but from what I hear you basically want to use a screen, I'm not sure how much painting the wall would gain but I'm open to it.. I love the simplicity of the blank wall that doesn't have a permanent screen attached.. I'm a minimalist as well so.... yeah its a crazy situation. ( screen size is about 185-195" )
so Im not a video connoisseur ( obviously ) but I wanted something that hopefully was a little more crisp and brighter then the LG I have now, basically an upgrade from what I have.. to make things worse I think I like the idea of laser which I don't want to deal with $500 bulb replacements and second I believe I need more lumen which doesn't fair well to bulb projector anyways right?
also from what I gather really most DLP chips are all sorta the same,, they work with their limitations which is the TI chip then they tweak.. obviously I wasn't wanting to spend 20k give I'm not a movie buff, I also just watch stuff from the Apple TV box as its simple...
really just looking for your opinion what to go for an upgrade as when I watch a movie I would like a better experience then what I have, which maybe isn't that bad but if I can upgrade to the next thing I'll be satisfied
second room is a small dining room area, same again with no light control, white walls, only thing with this one is I have smaller screen size and dimensions in the room.. using the LG I get a 90' screen size, so was hopefully wanting something again a little sharper, maybe the lens would get me a tad bigger screen size and let would be maybe brighter to use a different color mode, as right now I'm pretty bright as I feel the cinema modes are dull so I don't think I would be happy with say a NX5 s the lumen output is so low compared to what I already have?? was thinking to use a lens shift so I can get less gray border around the image as I don't use a pole on the mount as again.. I'm about form over function so hopefully having something with a lens shift could decrease the great border as its quite distracting..
was thinking maybe the new viewsonic coming out with laser and lens shift with I think 2900 lumen? again opinions wanted as I use this room half the time to watch movies and wanted a more vivid picture since its closer to wall, smaller image so was hoping for this to be a better picture
if photos help I'll load some up so you guys can see what Im working with
