4k Projectors...
« on: May 28, 2016, 07:24:35 PM »
So, still considering a 4k projector with 3D.

I'm really happy wIth my Full HD one, but crave that 3D set up, which seems a waste of time without going 4k.

Anyone gone the whole hog yet?  which projector did you go for?

Only one I know of that has both is the Sony.  I'm not ready to spend $10k for a projector upgrade, especially since it would also require another $3k in audio and player upgrades.

I'm just a poor engineer.

720p for me! I don't want to see a better resolution in person because I feel I will cave and "have to have it."

Cost is the thing stopping me at the moment, but they are coming down in price..

I was hoping to get away without buying another Amp, the one I have is first rate. May need to look a bit deeper into it.

To much coin for me at this point as well. Once the tech expands to other makers the pricing will obviously fall. Sony is just exploiting the market right now.

Have you checked into how close you need to sit to the screen for your eyeballs to effectively resolve 4k vs. 1080p?  And, if you then sit that close to the screen, how much of that screen is actually within your field of view?

Thanks.  You know what you did.

You have a point.  I sit 11' to eyeballs from a 120" screen at 1080P.  At that distance, the screen pretty much fills my field of vision. According to this chart, that configuration gives full 1080P effect, but 4k is just starting to have an effect.  I'd need to sit about 8' from the screen to see full effect, and I suspect that would be uncomfortable.
