    This will sound really dumb, but the blackest level on a screen projector is totally linked to the light of the ambient. Not everyone stops to think that projectors cant project “blacks” lol. I told you it’s a dumb statement but I am sure not everyone stops to think about it.

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one to go through hell trying to get my screen to completely line up and removing the ripples. I swear I took the whole thing apart 4 or 5 times before it was finally completely flat. I ended up with a 120" GrandView ALR and a LG HU85LA. It was a pain to set up, but I'm really happy with the results.

  • Malinkadink

    save $1500 to put towards audio and get a 77 oled for $3k, honestly doesn't look good especially on camera.

    A project is still a projector they are garbage and not worth any amount of money.

    The "trash can" projector linus is bashing is the LG hu80ka. I have it. It's actually better image quality than this Epson. Bought it over a year ago for $2200. Just takes a little common sense to set up. This is how you do it. Took about an hour to set up. photos.app.goo.gl/mVJiELs768BiiQ4QA

    "Nobody has power in the middle of their floor in the living room". Well aaactually lol, in China many people do, because its used for the water boiler. You serve tea to family and guests, and its from the coffee table most times, and that's why YES, millions upon millions of folk do in fact have power in the middle of the living room.

    A little behind the curve here LTT. HiSense are already on their second version of their laser TV and both have been very highly reviewed. They're also smaller, more compact and better looking than this montrosity.

    I absolutely love your ISnets platform. Great content. Everything you guys talk about and how in depth you go about the product is what I love. However, please stop talking about how "I'm the boss" and "I pay you" in your videos. Those type of comments don't happen all the time, but they happen enough. The channel is absolutely awesome! However, I totally cringe when the arrogant and conceded comments are said. Just my humble opinion, I still love the show... big fat thumbs up.

    4,000 lumens 😳 geeze thats nearly as bright as the projectors we have at work. We have halogen lamp Panasonic at 4500 lumens, 5500 lumens and 10,000 lumens. Our lenses were designed to set back 20 feet from the 12 foot wide screen. And they were bright enough to see in a moderately lit ballroom. Taking into account the inverse square law; 4000 lumens approximately 4 feet from the screen; that would be insanely bright for a medium sized living room. The problem with projector companies is that there is no standard way to measure the output lumens that they advertise on the box. Some companies measure at operating distance and others measure right up against the lens. Epson is a great brand. But there are $100 no name / brand projectors on amazon that advertise 2000 lumens, but have a telephoto lens so by the time you pull the project back far enough to fill a 12 foot screen, it looks like 200 lumens.

    Initial thought at 8 second mark: I can see at the start it's washed out. Better than most projectors but it is washed out.... After watching the video through, I was right it's a short throw projector. Nicer than others but I can see cost...

    Optoma HD141X is what I’ve had for years. Incredible blacks, super bright, can cast to 150”, and was still bright after 5,000 hours on the bulb. Pro tip: Don’t buy a knock off for the bulb replacement, be sure to buy the original OME.

    At that price range and the screen size range (you're not going to project that outside or in a theatre room either), Why wouldn't you just buy a large tv? lol

  • MrStanley85

    Dont know if you keep this thing but such a huge screen needs crisp sound. Consider testing and keeping the nuVero line from german manufacturer "Nubert". Your ears will be happy :)

  • Bencze

    I think I may be retired by the time I can get a decent projector, that means max 1k and UST so I can actually place it somewhere. And I live in western Europe, so that's about 50+ years for anyone living in poorer countries. Still, somewhat cool to see.

    Linus it still looks like the contrast sucks, can you change the settings to make it less bright, so it looks more dynamic. I do not want to sacrifice contrast for resolution. Its awesome in the dark but during the day it sucks, it should have a day mode and a night mode, to change the contrasts and bright.

    I gamed on a projector for years, it was amazing on the Xbox 360 and PS3, especially with Move games like Killzone 2 or anything that used a gun like Time Crisis 4. I had it at 105 inches and it was an incredible experience, especially at the time. I prefer my 65 in C9 OLED or a VR headset, but it would still be cool to have a giant screen again. If you just want to watch movies or even play some games, you can get projectors DIRT CHEAP now. Although the experience is not the best when you don’t pay for it, but in my experience kids love it. They can’t tell the difference. Or if you just want a cheap home theatre to wow your friends.
