Forget giant flat-panels -- projectors are the best way to enjoy true wall-size video displays. And with <i>short-throw</i> technology -- shooting the image straight up on the adjacent wall rather than across the room -- things can be much more lifestyle-friendly (namely, no wires stretching across the room or ceiling mounts required). LG was first to the short-throw projector game in 2013 with its $8,000 <a href="http://reviews.cnet.com/home-theater-projectors/lg-hecto-laser-projector/4505-7858_7-35558335.html">Hecto model</a>. Now, Sony is entering the ring with a model that will cost a whopping $30,000 to $40,000 when it hits in mid-2014 -- but delivers a stunning 4K image up to 147 inches. If that gives you sticker shock, you might want to look at the Philips Screeneo instead; the image is only 720p, but it will sell for a much more reasonable $1,800 when it goes on sale in the spring.

Yes, there are probably even better projectors available than JVC's DLA-X700R, but we haven't reviewed them and they likely cost even more. And yes, its cheaper line-mate is a better value. But none of that takes away from its incredible picture quality.
