    Largest I've had is while I was temporarily out of monitors, I had my desktop hooked up the family 62" DLP, its not 1080p so it wasn't the most enjoyable experience.

    My setup at school is a 28" Hannspree, great picture. Don't know that I would go below 24" for a single display for some of the work I do.

    ok I know a guy who knew a guy from college who was in the navy with a girl who dated her sister that hooked it a desktop to a imax screen... oh wait that is how they get the image already...

    did you use it for more than once? I was thinking something that you used for more than 2 weeks...

    Yeah. I mean it wasn't constant usage, but I paid to leave the theater unoccupied so I could play computer and my old PS2. It was a while ago, I don't exactly remember what I played, I think I played like SSX 3, star wars battlefront. Yeah that kind of stuff. I think with the laptop we played civilization and a few other games, but it was really cool.

    That doesn't really count, you don't own the movie theater it was being shown on... I actually own a 8'x10' and a 12'x16' screen and 2 4k projectors that I used for about 3 months daily until I moved and been to lazy to pull them out of storage...

    I think this thread is dying.

    This is ludicrous now. No pics no count in my opinion.

    I think we need the reverse of this thread, just to see what lengths people will go to say they use the smallest screen on their computer.

    The day I see someone hook a PC up to a calculator, then I'll be impressed. Screw all this HD rubbish.

    Na I am sure the projector is smaller than most of our screens :D

    Making the images bigger is not making the display bigger, put your nose up against your laptop screen.

    Tada! You just made the image bigger in the same fashion as a projector but in reverse.

    This is why I think pixel count > size if we want to do some kind of comparison as size has no relevance or measurement point but pixels are clearly defined and equal across all types of display.

    If you wan to be epic get a projector beyond 1080P by using a 30" 2650x1600 panel and crafting a DIY projector box.

    Lol and Vicious slams with the book of technicalities!

    That's true though, can't argue about the fact that pixels are the only constant in this test.

    Thats nice, but if its a cinema room I cant see the purpose. The highest digital format for cinema is 1920x1080 via blu-ray thus having a higher resolution does not net you any increase in quality much the same playing a old pc game with a limited resolution on a new age high resolution display does not net you any new quality.

    4K projectors are much more useful for commercial use (flight simulator, medical, etc) or as ultra high end enthusiast displays for PC in where the PC can render content at beyond 1080P.

    I understand I was just saying what I am using since the topic went from size of the screen to pixel count...

    I just have to ask, where would you use a 4k projector in the medical field?

    Not in your normal like hospital and stuff but in labs and stuff they have use for things like that. I have dealt with medical supply distribution guys before and they sell some pretty high end stuff.
