Expensive
Thinking of an upgrade and this is tempting. Cheapest I've seen it
33192527-1lg3G.jpgBought the Black one in 2014 with 92 screen for £529.99 this price
I wouldn't define this as short-throw.
Gaming? There's 16ms response time!!

In short, not many people making the parts (e.g. Texas Instruments make the DMD in every DLP projector) means high prices. There's also some crazy engineering going into the bulbs, those things run at 200 atmospheres of pressure.
Just buy an 10 bit 4K TV with HDR 1000 or. Spend more get OLED

Eeh, your option might win for image quality but there's more at play. Optimal TV size is determined by viewing distance and very little else, so for instance I used to have a 50" plasma in the living room. It was fine at my old flat but looked tiny in my new one as the viewing distance grew from 2m up to 4.5m.

Say you need to go bigger than 50", that becomes very expensive with TVs but is cheap with projectors. Pay £400-500 and you can have a 130" image. Meanwhile with TVs a 77" OLED TV costs 20k and is still half the size of the projector's image.

The point is, don't knock it because you don't understand why you'd use it.
