The choice is clear. OLED is the best unless you have a theatre-like settings for your projector.

Then again, you’ll need a good projector to match the quality to OLED.

I think best for you to know the truth. A lot of these short throw laser projectors are using a 1080p sensor. The 4K one exists but is too expensive.
So with this 1080p image, the projector then has to quadruple the Hz. So from 60 to 240Hz. So that they can display every 1080p image on all 4 corners very quickly in order to create a 4K image.

Anyway, the HDMI 2.0 era is coming to an end.
HDMI 2.1 is a huge improvement over HDMI 2.0 that we can now have 4K 120Hz gaming and up to 8K 60 (for now. cos HDMI 2.1 can go up to 10K 60 easily).
And don't forget getting VRR on most new games cos as you can see with current gen games, they are not locking the games down to just 30fps but letting them try to achieve 60fps which they usually end up being around 40+ to 50+fps. This is for their games to be ready when VRR comes to the next gen consoles. No need for the developers to have to update their old games by disabling V-Sync that is locking the game at 30fps.
So if you are planning to get a PS5 or X1X or PC, better to go for the future proof option vs an end of life technology. Like the consoles are literally months away. Not years at this point. So buying an end of life projector now is not advisable.

As for videos, no more compression of the colour with chroma sub-sampling from 4:2:0 or 4:2:2. Now, future videos and games can have the full 4:4:4. Each colour is pixel perfect. So no more rainbow and jagged edges or letterings that is small on videos and games and the use of PC desktop when you have it running at 4K 120Hz with HDR turned on.

Also, most importantly, the content. You get to watch Netflix, Amazon video, MeWatch, and even Apple TV on the OLED vs having to buy an external TV box in order to get those with your projector resulting in an added cost to the projector's investment.

Some purists believe that the best way to watch a movie is with a projector. Notice that cinemas can't achieve fantastic levels of HDR if they even have it at all. It's for the reason that the blacks are just too bright.
Also, the purists are not quite right. If they wanted a real experience of watching a movie, then they should see what the directors/video editors see. Which is through the TVs in their editing room. That's the mistake that purists makes. Video editors usually have to re-do their colour grading and all for the Blu-ray/video streaming releases as they want their videos to look the best for TVs that are capable of bigger colour gradients thanks to HDR. So it is a no brainer to go for TVs instead.

Haha I won’t ever consider projector. At same price range can buy Samsung/LG 82/86 inch tv. 4k resolution and decent picture quality.

But I will go 65 oled.

Actually, projector is more practical if u have a dark room & price of projector is definitely cheaper compared to a big screen 4K OLED TV.

And it's better for your eye in the long run.

Another solution can be Sony 75 inch tv... x8500/9500g is quite big and good.

Not too sure if a projector can last that much longer?

Some questions that you need to ask yourself is,

1)What is your viewing distance?
2)what do you normally do with your video medium, Such as r u an avid/casual gamer? Do you feel tired easily if you play on a big screen as some people regretted buying a big monitor to play game.

Then comes to the hype of HDMI2.1 which has a higher bandwidth for carrying 8K content.
TV makers need to churn out new technology to make $$.
HDMI 2.1 was released on 2017 but no tv makers are releasing them as of now.
Next is whether there is enough 8K content & if it’s expensive for studios to make 8K content.
Up till now, the sitcoms on Netflix, how many are 4K? How many anime are 4K?
Then the advantage of 8K can make lines to be smooth and not jaggy. But that depends on how near you sit to the screen.
No doubt the specs is nice, but the most important aspect is whether your eyes can see the difference of progression from 4K to 8K. If u have a 4K tv now sitting at 2meters and then u get a 8K same size tv sitting at the same distance, will u see any difference in picture quality.
I doubt.
But will u have the feeling good cos u own a 8K tv, definitely yes.
HDMI2.1 is best for gamers.
Then you will ask from refresh rate of 60hz to 120hz, how much difference will it make to a gamer? Can your eyes tell the difference? Same for PC, some CPU/GPU is very high end, but if there’re no Super taxing games/softwares that utilise them, these high tech parts are just under utilised.

I occasionally play game on my iPad Pro, watch neflix on my ipad, occasionally watch SG news on my 37” lcd tv in bedroom.
I like to watch movies on a big screen. Thus i bought a UST projector to replace my theatre room tv 50” plasma.
I can’t afford a 100” tv cos its price is literally a 1.6l car.
If a 100” tv cost 6-7k, i will definitely buy it instead of the projector.
Watching movies on a big screen gives you a different feeling.
But if your viewing distance is too short, you will not be able to enjoy a 100” screen either TV or projector.
You don’t buy a projector for 60-70” screen.
You can calculate the tv price jump from 60 to 85” to decide further too.

Lastly,not saying that HDMI2.1 is no good. We cant stop the market trend.
If a TV with HDMI2.1 with size of your recommended viewing distance, then just buy a tv.
