I'm on the hunt for a solid projector that I can use for backyard movie/gaming nights, budget of around $1500. Every time I see a review here, it's unfortunately not the type I'm looking for. Anyone (Catie, hive mind) have any ideas?

Thats a good sized chunk of change they scrounged up in a short amount of time.

When I bought my LG 4k tv (65un8500auj) I was satisfied. It has 4 HDMI ports but only 2 of them are HDMI 2.1 with 120 Hz refresh. Unfortunately, one of those ports is also eARC and I had to utilize for my 5.1 SS.
I only had my Nvidia Shiled TV Pro that “needed” to utilize one of the two 2.1 HDMI ports. My PS4 could Read more

Beautiful TV and $1800 is a steal for all the specs mentioned. Lack of ATSC 3.0 standard and native OS not being the best doesn’t concern me much these days, as TV nowadays is used as mere monitor for Apple TV and game console. Can’t remember the last time I watched anything broadcasted other than when staying at a Read more

Love they keep breathing new life into this lineup. Hands down the best media player I’ve purchased - and that was quite a few years ago!

This excites me the same way $1500 4k TVs excited me in 2014. When I’m ready for my next TV to be replaced in 3-5 years, OLED should be fully commoditized down to the $500 level for a 55" (my standard benchmark for affordable). Read more

Budgets are relative. If you’re in the market for an OLED, this one is the budget version. Read more

I’ve talked an awful lot of shit about this release plan when WB announced it... but I doubt that this movie was ever, in any year, going to do gangbusters at the theater. And hey, if it’s coming out in IMAX I guess that’s an argument to see it on the silver screen vs your phone.

It’s cute, but as nearly as I can tell, it’s going to be a 720p, 300 lumen projector in a size realm where 1080p and 600 lumens can be had. Its specs, combined with being cute and self contained and battery powered, and reasonable hope for pretty decent built-in sound, might carry the day, but it’ll be interesting Read more

I LOVE Calm's walking meditations. They're so relaxing, and they've changed how I take walks entirely.

We bought the Hisense 55" model after doing some research and getting it for under $600 on sale this Summer for our lake house. Obviously coming from OLED both blacks and HDR were somewhat of a letdown but overall it handled 4k content quite well for the price.

The LG CX family can be had for $1200 - $1500 and has an absolutely amazing picture of its own. Just because you can’t afford the literal best doesn’t mean you can’t have something absolutely beautiful.

I recently bought the LG ZX 77" in the sales and will say it provides the best picture I have seen on any tv to date. That is across a multitude of sources and inputs. Read more
