Re: The ongoing "TV size wars"

One of my real concerns about going bigger than my current 60” is that I still have a lot of DVDs that get watched and there’s still streaming stuff that will never be better than standard definition (like a lot of tv shapes that were recorded on tape). Until upconversion tech gets way better, that stuff will start to look pretty rough on the really big screens.

At that size, one should just go with front projection, assuming the room is even big and tall enough. (25 to 30' at least, 12-14' celings?).

I've stuck with 75" and it seems gigantic to me. I'm perfectly satisfied, and I'm very picky when it comes to encoding quality, transfer quality etc. Like everything else, the rich will soon demand 200" screens, however, and they will get them.... being indulged and catered to in their excessess.
​​​​​As recently as 10-12 years ago a 75" tv was practically unheard of and solely the domain of rich assholes and considered fairly indulgent.
