Hi. Made a few postings on here recently and Im getting some great feedback, so thank for everyone who contributes. Having read the review on projector central of the ptae 700, it seems that it might actually be more than I need. As I mentioned in other posts, I only anticipate connecting the PJ to my DVD player, just using the 'cinema' for watching films. Is the Panny more than I need ? I'll only be feeding it with standard DVD video, none of the high def stuff. Would I be better of going for a lower cost 854 x 480 machine ? Will I benefit from the 1280 x 720 native resolution of the panny ? My point is, I wont see the benefit of anything capable of displaying a resolution greater than that of the source.... will I ? Do you know, Im an electronics engineer for a radar systems company so I am pretty clued up on all the technical nonsense that flies around the world.... but I just can't get my head round this ..... Why am I being so stupid. Chris.
