I'm not comparing the Quest to the Pico 4. The Pico 4 easily beats the Quest on resolution but it's irrelevant because A 3D blu-ray is 1080p, or at most 1080p per eye. I can get every piece of information from that disc, and even increase the visibility of that information before it gets downscaled to native resolution. As an added bonus, downscaling nearly always increases the perceived picture quality.

It doesn't make sense to compare an early generation pentile OLED VR screen to a passive LG 4K OLED. With post-processing I can begin to match it in detail, especially because I'm viewing on an IMAX sized screen. But with SDE and other VR limitations my guess is that the LG will look better at HD resolution and above and I wouldn't be confident in comparing the two, especially without seeing the LG OLED screen first.

I would love to have the clarity of a 4K OLED on which to view 3D. But at the same time I think I would miss the much larger screen. That's only a guess on my part, but in general 3D seems to work better on larger screens and IMAX is much larger than any possible TV size available.
