I had previously never seen a projector of any resolution in operation before but the college I go to just got a second hand Proxima LCD data projector(don't know model number) from a reposession auction. I don't know how old this projector is or what the native resolution is but when its projecting a 5ft horizontal image from about 12 ft away, I can clearly see the panel structure(chicken wire effect).The PC that is feeding the projector is set to 800x600. When I eventually get an LCD projector I will be hoping to produce a 5-6ft horiz. image with the projector and viewing position also 12 ft back. What I want to know is whether all 800x600 projectors exhibit the same level of 'chicken wire' in which case I would have to set my sights a little higher?(Maybe the higher resolution Sony VW10HT). I could not live with the level of 'chicken wire I have seen. Could this college projector be an old VGA 640x480 model? (but wouldn't that mean the Pc would have to be set to 640x480). If this was the case then I could probably live with an 800x600 model. Any ideas?
