The 4k FP are dirt cheap... I just wish the price of the 4K projectors would drop like the FPs have. :(

Too bad they are so small compared to front projection ! Here is an 80" diagonal 16:9 TV vs my 128" diagonal 2.35:1 screen.

I was hoping the format where you rolled the screen fabric (TV) on the wall would be popular by now, but apparently it died before production. It would be great to just roll the fabric on the wall, and plug it into your AVR. This would have the potential to eliminate projectors though if the image is great.

" I'm not going to venture any more speculation at this point, except to take a stab at the pricing of the 65-inch "wallpaper" set: $10,000. " - too spendy, too small.

I agree it is expensive, but if it looks as good as a FP, they bring the price down to $5k, and make it wall size...it might be great. Then you could view in a room with lights on if you wanted, and have a bright picture still. I really think this is the future, but it must come down in price to where it competes size, and price to FPs and Projectors.

Too bad they can't matrix four 55-inch 1080p OLED panels to make one big 110" 4K display.  Surely that would be less expensive than a 110-inch 4K OLED panel.

But you would be able to see a line where the panels met. If viewed from far enough away, you might not see the line, but from most normal viewing distances, you would. That would be distracting to me.

It wasn't like I was going to buy the movies yet again on Blu ray, especially when I saw the " Mastered In 4k ". This is like the old " Where's the Beef " Wendy's commercial. Where's the 4K ?
