Funny, I've been using my projectors as a substitute for many years now, they work fine. You hear of these things called "curtains"? I hear they work WONDERS! Also modern projectors are bright enough to work even with moderate ambient light with good picture quality still. Where's that negative rep button hiding.... uninformed FUD-spreaders need it.
Bwahahaa, hilarious... you do know that 4k displays have barely any content available yet, let alone a mainstream disc format, availability for tv shows, etc., (and good luck running games on it!) and still runs ~15-20x the cost of this kind of set still.... right? Adorable.... "around the corner".... if a decade is that to you, maybe!
oh no! a negative rep! lol my day is ruined.
the thing about projectors is the blacks are only as dark as your room will get. how dark will your room get with light peaking through the curtains? how about the light that shines off your screen, reflects off the adjacent white walls and ceilings, back to your screen? There goes your black levels and contrast. Maybe you have a high tolerance for washed out images (however slight it may be).
not everyone likes to watch content in the dark at all times.
tv's blacks and contrast ratio are independent of how bright your room is. i have both and understand the difference. you and your sidekick boyfriend are cute, though. i'm amused.
Seriously... talk about outdated tech knowledge . I had an Epson PowerLite 550 from several years back even that handled it well enough, and with window treatments it was no issue at all. Modern projectors with the kind of lumens they put out laugh in the face of daylight, of course.
You still lose contrast and black level with any light in the room. I own an Epson 8700UB, so I am not bashing...just stating fact.
Will this tv help 3D content look more realistic.? I want it to look like things are coming out of the screen.
You should go to CES next year and check out the 4K glasses-free 3D TVs, now they look like a square hole that you are looking through, it doesn't look like there is a TV screen just a square frame like an opening to the vibrant outside world.
At the sizes that these are approaching, it becomes quite simple to see the actual physical pixels. Upscaling the movies will make them look as they always do, blurry. Movies don't have the fine detail of videogames or PC usage, so the content doesn't matter as much as not being able to easily see the actual pixels, and the gaps between them.
That's all I care about "4k" for - higher resolution for bigger screens, or sitting closer (PC monitors).
