I'm thinking with a two hundred foot diagonal, it may not be.
I use the W1070 with a 161" (that's inches) diagonal screen in lower power mode and it is plenty bright enough in a less than ideal room. I would think the W1070/W1080ST could potentially handle a 200 inch screen.
But, you might need to spend a bit more to cover 200 feet.

-Brb criticizes America for being dumb.
-Needs their system to be as simple as possible.
If you're so much smarter than us, why do you need to use a more simple system? Does that make us smarter for being able to comprehend such a "challenging/confusing" system?
What about when working with/subdividing simple math in inches vs mm?
Almost all basic/common sub divisions are whole numbers when you use 12 and 16. A child could learn this. The foot is based on the human foot (relatable), Metric is based on the size of the Earth? (why? we don't usually work with global scales when cutting some pieces of wood in half in our garage to make that simple shelf.)
Did you know you lose accuracy with mm at every 1000 meters? yeah you lose a mm. lollll. Also Fahrenheit has way more degrees and is also more accurate. Im not a scientist, Im not working with boiling and freezing water every day. Just want to know the most accurate temp.
How is it a criticism that all countries copied France, who is right there in the heart of Europe and didn't copy US? Well you guys shouldn't have copied France in the 18th century! You're trolling the US!!!
The Month/day pyramid is clever but unfortunately we don't see time as a pyramid. We see it as relative to our perception of time. Year should definitely be last. But just like you conversationally want to put in context October 12th vs the more loaded The 12th day of October, you think of time first in the large categorized chunk of the month, then the day. The day is the same every month (1-28/31) but first you need to know what month that day is in because that is the functional multiplier/categorizer of the information you need. Its how the mind works with time frames most relatable to human perception of time relative to our day to day reality.
Don't worry though, Apple and Google have built you guys smart phones where you can just speak a conversion and it will convert it for you on the spot. Real simple for ya. Its not that hard to have both in existence.
