projector to TV.
« on: September 13, 2018, 03:58:50 PM »
My old Optoma projector has finally died.

To replace it is going to cost a fortune, and I am instead going to get a new TV.

Opinions please for a reliable 85" model that isn't going to need a new mortgage.

Replacing your projector will certainly be cheaper than the 86Ē replacement screen.

When you say died, what exactly do you mean?

yep i agree with this quote .... to Jaxxon - if you want a 80"+ sized screen then the TV is going to be way more expensive than an entry level 4k projector - in fact if you want to spend R60k then you can get a much higher model ultraHD projector

its actually the other way around to what you think - a big screen TV is going to cost a fortune - and ive even seen some Samsung QLED models in 75" that cost around R120k and those projectors are way cheaper even when you factor in a proper high end retractable screen into the equation - remember though this is mainly because of the size that you want

:faint: carp. If it went straight down from the ceiling height, probably not worth trying to revive. Lamp/lamp holder for sure. Lens? Casing broken? Obviously electronics if it's not coming up at all.

Jax, have a chat with BillyBawb who is selling the JVC (and as of this morning giving away a motorised screen with it!). That was, and I believe still is, one of the best projectors on the prosumer market. I'd buy it a blink of an eye but there is no way I can justify another projector, even as a spare.
