    Finally got my C8 setup on the wall with new Apple TV 4K and PS4 Pro and it's fantastic, even non techie gf was well impressed.

    On the PS4 Pro I only tried Ratchet and Clank but Uncharted 4 DLC is next!

    So how does it compare to the Kuro, I believe that's what you replaced?

    No, it was a Panasonic 65VT50, so a very good Plasma and so far, it's a huge improvement in every way, really stunning looking. I haven't yet tried watching football as the motion may not be quite as good.

    One of the most impressive things is how "3D" the images look, it's a joy to watch so far.

    Tonight I tried Infamous First Light, Uncharted : Lost Legacy and Horizon: Zero Dawn and it's pretty stunning. The effects in Infamous are spellbinding.

    It's not very big is it? If I had that much wall, and if I could afford all that hi-fi equipment you've got, I'd get a bigger telly.
    It's 65", not easy to go bigger without some serious cash.
    A 77" would have been 3x as much, too much for me.

    Once HDMI 2.1 is settled in a few years, I'd love to get a 77" if they become relatively affordable but spending 4500 quid makes no sense just now.

    As has been discussed in this thread, image quality isnít as good plus theyíre too noisy.
    Fans above my head can fuck off.

    Um, doesn't the noise from those monstrosities cancel out out any (minimal) fan noise?

    Aha, probs but when itís close to your head, itís distracting . I also sometimes play with headphones on when gf is in the room so fan noise is always unwelcome.

    I look forward to short throw, quieter projectors in the future :)

    Looks OK, though this is a less glowing review (and I wouldn't trust T3 on anything these days).

    Input lag is 80ms according to Projector Central too.

    I watched Ready Player One in 4K HDR tonight and it blew my tiny mind, absolutely stunning !
    I couldnít recommend the C8 highly enough.
