Considering a projector instead of a new TV

One of my two TVs broke. It was about 8 years old, a returned model, and cheap when I bought it, so that’s fair. When I went to watch TV reviews YouTube started showing me TV/projector comparisons. Now I am curious if I should try a projector and see if that works better for me.

At first, I was resistant to the idea of using a projector. Normally I used them only in business settings and never personal ones. However, as I watched various reviews, I started to see projector advantages and consider whether that is the technology’s future.

For example, where I am moving is very sunny. Normally that is a problem for projectors, but now with special screens, they look great even in rooms with a lot of light. I also like that there is no glare and reflections. When you wear glasses like I do, having a TV screen reflect the light is a problem. Since I use it as my monitor it helps me to not have the lights on. Usually, this is enough to reduce the glare.

It is almost certain that I will get a projector instead of a TV. I am just reviewing different models to find out what is best for me. I like the Ultra short throws, and I think that I want one that is laser as well. I don’t care so much about 4k resolution. I thought that I needed it with this TV I have but it turned out to be more bother than it was worth. I know that the cheaper ones use a 1080p resolution but that is honestly probably fine for the use I am using it for.

The only downside is the cost. I don’t want to spend more than $1500 and that might change depending on the research that I do. It is hard to imagine not using a TV every day. It has been such a part of my life for all of my life. First to play video games, then for entertainment, education, and now for work. I will miss the TV but perhaps its death is inevitable.
