I don't want to spark any flame wars, but I'll take a bite at your questions.

1) You're right that the darkened room is the initial critical factor for many projectors. The comparison vs lcd/led will depend on a few environmental factors, including light control, screen material, and both projection and viewing distance. Viewing position can also come into play as the reflective angles of the screen and projector need to be aligned correctly. If setup correctly, and viewed in a properly light controlled environment, IMHO you can produce the same level of detail from a projector or fixed panel display. But don't underestimate the impact on black levels of light control. Even with a darkened room and cheating via light absorbing borders (like black felt) surrounding the screen, small amounts of ambient light can really impact a projected image. On the other hand, you can't reproduce larger image sizes for anywhere near the cost of a projector, and the visceral impact of that large image (or a larger group viewing space) is a factor to consider as well. For what its worth, I love projectors, but when the price on ~106" panel with good quality and performance drops near $2k I'll buy that in a heartbeat. So far none exist, and thus I'm a projector guy.

2) This answer largely depends on your screen, your wall finish, and the projector (in that order). IMO that can only be answered by trial and error. Note that you can address it by adding DIY panels to the "risk areas" if needed.

Basis: I've used a series of projectors as my primary display for household viewing in an open-layout living room for the past 20 years. All front projection, all at ~106" diagonal, various screen materials and various types of projectors ranging from $500-$3200.
For a dedicated, light-controlled room, you don't want this projector. The TK800M and TK850M are intended for multi-use rooms with significant ambient light. They had a white segment to the color wheel (RGBW) to increase white lumens, which sacrifices color lumens, color accuracy, and contrast. It's a good projector for a living room, but not for a dedicated theater.

The HT3550 is a much better choice for a dedicated theater. I would definitely think it's worth the extra, and you can get a refurb with a full warranty from benqdirect for $1199. It adds more lens shift and zoom, excellent factory-calibrated color accuracy, a dynamic iris for scene-by-scene dynamic brightness and contrast, and 18GBps HDMI for 4K 60fps HDR. It is a very large improvement for the price difference.
A few years old model. 850m is the replacement

Yes, it's older but priced usually at $1199. 850 is newer version but it's at $1499. Even refurbished 800m on BenQ website is at $1049. So definitely a good deal 👍

I chatted a while back with benq cs about the refurb. They offered me it for 850

Starting off the MSRP on this is realistically around $1300 so this is a great deal at this price for brand new, non refurbished.

Second this is a great all around projector, if your gaming and playing high paced FPS games you can get a little ghosting though so please be mindful. The input lag on this projector is just under 50ms, for smooth gaming you need to be around 30ms. That being said this is one of the lowest input lag projectors out there as the majority of 4k projectors are all well over 50ms so only a few true gaming 4k options.

I have a dedicated theater room and will be 80% for movies, and 20% gaming. My budget is $1500, would spending $500 more get me more "WOW", or should I just pocket the 500 and get this thing

projector questions: so i know none of these projectors can hold up next to a oled screen. But would you say the quality projectors still deliver the level of detail of a good lcd/led 4k tv? (in a dark room of course)

also how far away from the side walls does a screen have to be so you dont get any light reflection on the walls?

If your into 3-D as mentioned earlier the 850 version is a step up but gives a significant pop to 3-D, outside of that nope you really wont find any projector that will give you a significant difference for an extra $500. The 850 normally is around $1500 but has been on sale for a few hundred less if you want to wait.

When it comes to quality there are projectors that are comparable to OLED, but they are extremely expensive, but yes they do exist. As for in a light controlled room you can get pretty close, and the size of the screen clearly overshadows and provides a more impressive image compared to a 70"/80" TV. My older 1080p projector 120" screen is more impressive than any of my friends 60"-70" 4K LED/OLED setups. I always get the wow comments when I play high end HD content, waiting patently for a very solid 4K projector that suits all my needs, probably sometime next year.

Light bleed is not very common anymore as the lens themselves are extremely elegant compared to the old large bulky lenses that older projectors used to use. So for the most part its a problem that really does not exist anymore, at max you will get a light border of only a few inches, if any with some projectors. You can literally have it right against a wall surrounded on all sides and it should not be a problem. Having a proper screen also helps make problems like that obsolete.

This item on Amazon is sold by third party seller. B&H Photo Video has this item for the same price and is an authorized Benq dealer. Not sure how the return policy works with BHPhotoVideo though. Any recommendations on one vs the other please?

With your setup you should get the 3550 over this. Yeah the 3550 is more but picture quality is worth it and you have a room where you could control all lights.

Get the Epson 5050 refurbished w 2 year warranty. A dedicated theatre room will show the BenQs weak contrast. Grey instead of deep blacks. Gaming response will be better on the Epson as well I believe around 25 ms
