Post What is the biggest widescreen TV size available for purchase?

I've been looking into home theater ideas and would really like to eventually purchase a bigger widescreen TV than the one I have now. Right now I have a 60 inch. I know they sell 70s but do they make them any bigger?

103' Runco Plasma, but if your talking about mass produced stuff a lot of people can afford no I haven't seen over about 70'. I saw a Samsung 64' that was huge the other day and that is coming from some one who owns a 55'.

I concur with tilallr1. Any screen size bigger than 70" really warrants some research into projection at that point. If you have room for a TV bigger than 70", you have room to set up a projector.

Besides, getting into TV sizes like that would seriously cost a fair amount more than a projection setup. My 65" Sony HX929 is going to cost me $7000 (after tax in Canada) and I could get a really nice projector setup for that. However, the 3 things holding me back from a projector are my "5 roommates sharing the living room" situation, the need for stereoscopic active-shutter 3D technology, along with the 2 large window and front door within 15' of my viewing wall.

I'll invest in a good projector room when I own my own house and convert a full room into a theatre.

Mitsubishi sells 73", 82", and 92" TVs at reasonable prices. Their quality and black levels are much better than LCD TVs. The only disadvantage they have is that they are big and bulky and cannot be installed on the wall. If you have the space, go for them.

the plus side to this is no more heating bills.

From the site:
"Even with its large screen size, the 4K2K display faithfully expresses bright, highly detailed content that fills the entire screen with lifelike images, even when viewed from a relatively close viewing distance. "

I have personally never seen projection be as sharp. Close, but not perfect.

I've only seen maybe six screens, though.

Honestly the overall picture quality, in a light controlled room is better IMHO.

From my friend who owns a 60" Pioneer KURO Plasma (Which is considered still the best flat panel for PQ), I consider my projector on par for PQ with it. I also don't obviously have the best quality projector, so that being said I think projection will always have better overall PQ.

Of course CRT is still considered the best or closest to film for Home Theaters and thus the best for PQ. But its no longer a viable option, nor are any made for 1080p.

Sharpness isn't everything to be honest. For me personally, black levels are where its at. Projectors obviously kick the crap out of flat panels for this. With the exception of Plasma from Pioneer. But they aren't made anymore.

I have the 60" Kuro (Pro 151) and I've seen nothing like it in projection. I use it exclusively for Blu-Rays, so I've been open to switching to a projection system.

I got my Kuro in mid-2009, after seeing what was out there for projectors, and for price/performance, Kuro won out. Things have changed in projection since then, but I haven't spent the time looking around or getting advice.

Next time around, it will either be a projection system, or an 80" Elite (or whatever's out there). Looks like you're doing fine with the Pioneer, I'll keep that in mind.

If you want big, go projection but that will require a light controlled room. Once you go front projection, your cost to size ratio will drop substantially as you go to the larger sizes. I bought the most expensive screen on the market for my theater and at 163" diagonal (150" wide 2.35:1) with a 3-chip DLP it was still a lot cheaper than any flat panel display will ever be.
