Just got back from the store, sort of an impulse buy as I just bought 2 TV's , one for the main bedroom and the other for the living room. The quality of them in the store was just too much to pass up. I am really looking forward to when these 4K projectors get themselves sorted out.


Cheers Dave

Thanks, I have been looking at TV's for a while now, but when the Sharps came on sale they were just too hard to resist. Amazing how much TV technology has come. I wonder if there will be a day when we won't need PJ's? At this rate of advance, it is hard to see the makers stopping...

I think the massive size of these panels is a big reason why projector talk is nothing like it used to be. Still 170" wide panel;s might be a bit yet.Congrats on the purchase ,let us know how you are enjoying them.

Thanks!


@Art, I am still relatively new to all this and I sadly came into PJ's when CRT's were no longer being made. But, I know what you mean, things are just not what they were when those first 780 & 1080p PJ's started coming out. I would give it 5 years until a 150" TV will be affordable.

Agreed ... but are there any on the horizon ?


Cheers,
The Galaxy Note 3 will supposedly have the flexible OLED display. The flexible OLED panel has been around for a year or so I believe. So maybe a roll up display is less than 10 years away?

When did they come out with a 4K set?

I am not sure, but I have still yet to take delivery, so they may not yet be shipping.


The 4K unit I saw in the shop was a smaller model, but the picture was outstanding.

No matter how big flat panels become, they're still just TVs...big TVs with shiny glass that reflect the table lamp and that exhibit back-lit glowing images. I have several...one in the living room and one in the bedroom. I watch them for sporting events and the news, reality shows etc. But I would never ever think of them as a substitute for a two-piece projection system. They are not capable of delivering a truly cinematic movie-going experience...one in which our field of vision is filled with pure unadulterated images unencumbered by the vale of glossy glassy "TV-ness"...a vale which inhibits 'suspension of disbelief'. TVs are convenient appliances, but (IMO) they don't belong in a serious home theater.

Well if you turn off the lights there is no glare or if TV's used the matte displays such as the ones used on Thinkpads that are not glossy, just saying.

Wouldn't mind having the Panasonic 4K or 8K, they are large enough to fill my field of vision. And yes glass makes for a mirror, but still... And two piece front projection has dark areas, called shadows.

Huh?...is that a blanket statement or might you be referring to under-performing entry-level projectors that are matched up with inappropriate screens?

I disagree, I think TV tech will eventually give a better image than a projector. The ultra high dynamic range screens I saw demoed a few years ago ate any PJ tech for breakfast (The Brightside TV). It is only a matter of time I think before something like that comes along in screen sizes big enough to fill a HT wall.

Currently I wouldn't trade my projector for any TV out there, but I think the main obstacle will be shipping. I can't see a roll-up screen happening in the next 20 years, if for no other reason that the difficulty of mounting it flat again.
