I think quiet wins over affordability. If there isn't anything available that is quiet and decent quality output then we go without.
Any suggestions at the higher end?
Why would anyone get a projector when 60"+ TVs are much cheaper than good projector + nice screen + extra bulbs?
Because we don't want a 60" screen in the living room where as we do have the ability to hide a projector screen in the ceiling. Currently we don't have a TV at all and want to keep it that way.
Along the same lines, does anybody have a good recommendation for a living room projector?
It would need to be 1080p (minimum!) and quiet but otherwise anything considered.
Go and ask any timber merchant for a bit of 2 by 4 and they will know what you are talking about but then ask them for what the actual size is. They will give you two answers, one for sawn timber and one for plained timber. The answers they give will be in millimetres and neither will be anything close to 50.8mm x 101.6mm. The length will also be given in metres.
All good points. I do like stuff small so it would probably be ok for me and I absolutely insist that displays are run at native resolution. It would be nice to see a 4K in operation though before I purchase. More research needed.
30Hz is a deal breaker for me. 60Hz or nothing. 30Hz is ok for watching movies apparently but I don't think I could cope with mouse lag.
39" would be nice though and removes the issue of everything being small.
I was thinking about getting a Asus PB287Q 28" 4K 60Hz as it has good reviews but was unsure as to whether I can stick with icons and stuff being small. I love the idea of the additional pixels as I always seem to not have enough but I here some programs aren't a good match as they don't scale well.
Anybody use a 4K display for programming / development work? Good or bad idea?
Video of the landing was produced and transmitted to an aeroplane but unfortunately it is rather corrupted. SpaceX have attempted to improve it but it isn't much better. They are now looking for help to improve it further."
More here including the promise of video later this week.

Rocket booster relit twice (supersonic retro & landing), but spun up due to aero torque, so fuel centrifuged & we flamed out

Between this flight & Grasshopper tests, I think we now have all the pieces of the puzzle to bring the rocket back home.
Yes that does seem to be the case
