    I'm just about to buy a projector - probably an Infocus 4805, but I'm also thinking about getting an Xbox 360 towards the end of the year. I'm just wondering if I should pay the extra now and get a projector that can do Hi-Def, (1080p is the max for Xbox 360 I think?), or are they prohibitively expensive at the mo?

    Thanks in anticipation of anyones help.

    1080i is max for 360.
    1080P is max for PS3

    A recent study showed that thru normal viewing. Eyes cannot resolved the difference between 720p and 1080P so you might as well go for a 720P projector.

    Also. 1080P are seriously expensive.

    720P projectors worth considering are AE700 and Z3 for LCD.

    Interesting article here - away from the hype - most new games will be 720p for PS3

    http://groups-beta.google.com/group/alt.games.video.sony-playstation2/msg/62ff83d96ea78ea9?hl=en

    a snip:

    "Despite strong performance and support for 1080p, a large number of
    developers are targeting 720p for their PS3 titles and won't support 1080p.
    Those that are simply porting current-generation games over will have no
    problems running at 1080p, but anyone working on a truly next-generation
    title won't have the fill rate necessary to render at 1080p. "
