With eye-catching TVs and a growing range of more versatile projectors, there has never been a better time to Netflix and chill. But choosing between the two viewing formats is becoming increasingly complex, particularly at the higher-end of the market.

The price gap between projectors and TVs has shrunk, and with a growing number of ultra-short-throw projectors, creating a home-cinema environment isn't as challenging as it used to be. Then there's the small matter of what you happen to prefer; the giant size of a projected image; or the beautifully deep blacks of an OLED?

There's no right or wrong, but we reckon more users are going to be considering projectors in the coming years, and we're intrigued to hear your thoughts on the subject, so let us ask: TV or projector?

Spring came early?
I use a TV, also use a TV as my monitor (4K, 43“ HDR, cost me Ā£650 2+ years ago. Can barely get that in a monitor now), but if I had the space it'd be a projector in a heartbeat. 100+”, surround sound, it's just such an experience. Makes even the most crappy of media come to life.
I've got a 55 inch LG EF950V oled downstairs for films, and a 27.5 inch samsung 4K QLED monitor upstairs for gaming. I'd love a projector but don't have a good place to set it up :(
TV, because it's a TV, is only 50", fits in the little corner of our little cottage, doesn't need a dark room or specific wall setup to work, won't burn out the bulb and cost lots for a replacement, and whatever other issues projectors usually have/had. Is also simple enough that the Ttaskmistress can plug & play it with her Sky box, and not have to ask me stupid/awkward questions that I have neither answers to nor interest in…

But if I was building myself a SimPit, I believe projectors would be the better option in such a case… especially if I was building it into the cut-down fuselage of a real aircraft, like one guy I was lucky enough to meet!
