This isn't a fan-boy thing, I've primarily run projectors for 15 years. Qualifying that in a normal 95%+ situation in the market. People can give dance around the topic and do the usual "you need to see one calibrated" (typical argument that is grasping at straws... or a strawman itself). I've been around here for a while and there is a few guys I know here who know there stuff whom I have taken their advice like bigmouthdc in home theater. Other then that, I think we are getting pulled around again by vendors and people who are either really fan boy about there tech or they are vendors with fanatical interest in shooting down comments like this (for any normal person who may be reading this thread). It would be nice if posters noted if they are in this industry with financial interest. That all I have to say about this. Until we see a true scientific comparison, I trust my own visual acuity more then what Im hearing from some people here. I have no doubt that purchasing a 77" OLED in my new theater with seating closer to the source will be vastly suspicious in any possible way then any projector for anything near 3x the price. Prove that wrong with data and I will admit Im wrong. Call me a troll, call me a dump chimp... I've been dealing with trolls since before the internet was http... it really doesn't phase me. But prove me wrong with data and I will fully agree. Again, there is a history here of people who attach to things and dont give them up (I fought the hd-dvd people even though I had a unit) and I dont feel I've been wrong. Sorry if that breaks some peoples vested interests. All you gotta do is read the quote in my titles to know how I feel. I have a computer science teacher once tell me Intel would never make a chip faster then the Pentium 100mhz proc since you could boil eggs on it. I challenged him, he got upset, but I was right... my new i9-10900K sure is a bit faster. These forums have become impossible to try to have civil discourse in so... ya... Im out of here. To much ego...
Maybe Ill come back in 10 year and give it a "I told you so"... but you'd probably call me a dumb chimp again.
I just now stumbled on this thread you started.
So, 1st thing I want to say to you is, I'm not a vendor nor do I sell anything at all including any and all Audio/Video gear.
I'm what's commonly referred to as an End-User.
This is why I have a dedicated H/T.
It's all about Audio as well as Video to me.
It makes no difference at all if a given size OLED had the superior overall images or not.
Especially if we are speaking of say a 77" OLED flat-screen as an example and the latest/greatest technology for it.
I am in a 24' Long, 20' Wide by say 9' for center ceiling.
In this H/T I have a 123" 16x9 screen.
I also have the JVC RS4500 laser projector.
I sit approximately 12' 6-inches from the screen.
The audio is what's referred to as a 7.4.6 speaker system.
In a completely Pitch-Black
So, what I'm attempting to share with you is simple.
There is No-Way that switching to any 77" or similar size OLED flat-screen would even remotely come close to the Audio & Video that I currently have.
It's the Total Experience buddy I'm speaking of not what has the best overall images for it's given size.
Home Theaters have a place for those of us that have the Funds to have them just as the 77" or Similar OLED has it's place.
I'm personally not one of the AVS members that's Biased on Brand Loyalty at all.
It's simply a matter of what the individual likes, prefers, wants and is 100% satisfied with that in the end counts.
Personally and ONLY speaking for myself if your Happy
with your 77" OLED flat-screen that's truly what really matters as far as I am concerned.
I've attempted/tried to give you from my point of view why my dedicated H/T is what I love and why.
Peace brother man,
