    manufacturers will always quote the biggest number they can get away with.

    So on an LCD pj with 3 million pixels, it will have 3 million pixels. But that will be divided between the 3 panels required to project the red/green/blue light to make the final image. So each panel will have 1 million pixels, and the final image will have 1 million real colour pixels.

    You can get a clue on this from the stated native resolution of the device - eg the Sony's have a quoted resolution of (IIRC) 1366X768. Work this out and it comes to 1,049,088.
