I know that DLP TVs are dead, despite the last gen LED and laser based ones being rediculously good and completely destroying LCD based TVs for the time. I think you still have the images of the old school DLPs in your mind. They are not that big anymore, and the viewing angle is quite respectable on latest models. But I agree, that ship has sank...

Projectors however are a different story. DLP is killing the LCD projector as I am writing this... Projector big screen 3D gaming is where its at. :)


I've never used a projector. I figured the picture would be a bit washed and less sharp than watching it on an actual screen. 

There are so many factors which decide how good a projector looks. Screen is very important. Correct projector for light conditions. Contrast ratio vs brightness. Once set up right, it can look stunning. A lot of people that come to my house are blown away with what a 600 dollar home entertainment 720p projector picture looks like on a 92 inch screen. I have a 1080p projector as well, and 720p res looks 90% as good for movies and games. Text and computer browsing benefits from a 1080p projector a lot more...

And there shouldn't be any blur or lack of sharpness if set up correctly. I mean, blowing up a 720p or even 1080p resolution to a 100+ inch screen needs to have a little blur in order to be visually pleasing which is why DLP tech looks great at that size. An LCD pannel of 1080p at 100 inches diagonal wouldn't look so hot without blur as well...
