    I love my 1080p projector, and to my eye it produces a better image (or "experience" if you're into that) than my parent's 4k tv. Is there really as big of a leap between a 1080p projector and a mid-tier 4k projector as there is between a 1080p tv and a 4k tv? I'm a bit skeptical of all the "4k" projectors that rely on shifting pixels to create the illusion of 4k, but I'm not willing to drop multiple thousands on a fancy sony one either.

    Well they aren't 4k for one. And the DLP's are absolutely awful, even worse than the newer 1080p chips which were completely antiquated.


    So unless you want to plop 5k for a sony, or deal with a JVC and e-shift... no, they aren't worth it. Not even close.
