What's that, approx 10 pixels per inch?
You'd have to sit outside and watch it through the window :D

Keep in mind the Price Is USA as well, here it is in Aust (http://www.sharp.net.au/product-catalogue/products/LB1085/) :eek: :eek:

Just measured its size.

If I take out the front windows, it will fit across the opening, with the curtains at its side (just) :thumbs:

SWMBO asked what I want for Xmas ---- :lol: Yeah right.

Imagine what'll happen if someone put it on his desk to play games? By the time he took a glance of his ammo, and back to his crosshair, he'd be killed already.

Thus, this thing just lost a lot of potential market, because those people who would buy i7 980X's and dual 480GTX's to play games won't be impressed when they find that out :p

If you're gonna spend that much, would be cheaper to pay some one to design an in-home theater, pay someone else to build it, pay someone to decorate it, pay someone to pay someone to buy a good projector, pay someone to buy cows and skin them so you can pay someone to make leather recliners, then pay someone, then give a poor person $100000 :)

One would think such a screen should be 4K, not a mere 1080p...

Weighs in at around 250KG. No way could I lift that to wrap it up, and it's not like you can hide it behind the Christmas tree either!

It works out to something like only 100 lines per diagonal inch. Meh...

1080 is a vertical measurement whereas 108 is diagonal :)

I daresay I'm incorrect (see post #4, probably close tho).
Ok, smarty-pants, you work it out (show me the working). :D

No, no, you're right. I was referring to diagonal inches, 'cos I can't be arsed finding out the exact vertical screen size. 10 lines per diagonal inch is even worse....

Me neither.

108 diagonal inches means an area of 4981.2645 square inches. (1920x1080)/4981.2645 = 416.something pixels per square inch. 416^1/2 (square root) = 20.4 pixels per inch.

If I'm wrong, I'm tired. :p
