    Yes.

    A native pal resolution DLP, how long before a 720p hits this price level?

    I would imagine the XBox360 will output 720p, so this PJ would have to downscale the image which probably won't look too good...

    From memory this has a 4:3 chip with some of the lines switched off to make it widescreen. As I recall it's not as good as some of the other PAL res widescreen chip models, but seems to be a steal at this price.

    I think it did have some issues. Do a search on this forum and you might get the opinions of actual users.

    It produces a good image, but the two I had had bloody awefull lightspill.

    If you're projecting onto a white wall you'll see large, mis-shapen grey bars top and bottom of the 16:9 picture.
