RE: 4:3 OLED TVs: A Win For All

As you may have imagined, long before I thought of pitching this ~ 50" 4:3 OLED TV idea to Pioneer and those Chinese OLED Brands, I had hoped a front view projector would be the best solution. Sadly, though my room is nearly empty it's a ridiculously small 11.5 x 10.5, and I'd have to place the projector either on a desk inside of an open closet or suspended from a metal grille shelf across the interior length of the closet. But if I can find the right kind of bracket, the latter placement idea should best minimize heat and fan noise-which are likely the biggest problems.

Save for a 25 watt red transparent bulb in a gooseneck lamp aimed away from the screen and projector beam, and which I may only use occasionally, the room should quite be dark, so the projector's eco-mode will always left on. That should reduce brightness with no sacrifice of contrast ratio and reduce heat thereby less fan noise and longer bulb life. However, with the ~ 65" 4:3 screen in a corner 10 ft from the lens and with me sitting just outside and to the right of the closet, the issues will still be tolerable fan noise levels and how much visible distortion from however much needed keystoning.

I will post my situation at projector at https://www.avsforum.com/forum/24-digital-hi-end-projectors-3-000-usd-msrp/ and http://www.bigscreenforums.com/forum_browse.cfm?which=5 and then maybe consult a local CEDIA contractor.

The noise and heat may be tough nuts to crack in my tiny room, but with my low brightness, modest screen size and 1080p rather than 4K requirements I'm hoping these experts can suggest projector and screen models with noise levels ~ 19db or less within my price range.

Ultimately, however, since we film noir fans live for high contrast ratio and black levels, despite all the above considerations, is there a projector and screen for my situation that will truly deliver OLED/CRT like performance?

Also, rather than use a Sony OLED TV for web surfing and word processing sessions, I had hoped to use the projector for these tasks. But unless the projector's eco-mode and my room's very low ambient light can keep brightness down to a bare minimum, I suspect the experts will advise against this practice.

All I can do is to ask the experts and hope for the best.
