A 150"?
I don't think so.

But yeah this is really pricey at the moment but the technology should trickle down.
You can buy an 84-85" 4K for under $10K. It doesn't have to be 150". According to the specs, the projected image size ranges from 66" to 147".

I don't know about you, but I have a 70" TV and a 120" (projector) and the difference is really meaningful.
It's the difference between a pretty nice size to a movie theater experience.

Anyway I think the technology is pretty cool and it would be great to see the price come down on these things..

Canada, eh!
Pretty cool, but pricey.

I'm okay with my current ceiling mounted projector and I can still afford to buy new car! :D

Yeah all 4k projectors are pricey for now.
I think on a 100+ inch screen, you should be able to see the difference between 1080p and 4k though, unlike those small 60 inch TVs.

Yeah, I'll say. Most people don't have big enough rooms for these large screens. They'll complain how grainy it looks! lol

My home theater room is pretty small but I still enjoy the larger than life size at a pretty short viewing distance (~10 feet I think)
