I haven't seen either the Lt85 or VT540, but I have seen their more expensive siblings. IMO I would use a progressive scan DVD player with either since I didn't find the processing on the LT150 or LT155 to be better than average, which isn't saying much. Once you bypass the onboard processing then both projectors improved a great deal with the LT150 simply overwhelming the LT155 (I think the high contrast had something to do with it). If you're not sensitive to the rainbow artifact then I would try the LT85 and make sure you can return it if not satisfied. The DLP IMO provides a much smoother picture than LCD does. The vivacious colours of the LT150 were a pleasure to view. I suspect the LT85 is very similar to the LT150, and if so, it is definitely worth a look! Again, you must click off the "white segment" found in the advanced menu (I think, but this is not XGA, so who knows?).
I really want to get my hands on the LT85 to see what it can do. I may have to buy one to see (but I don't want to spend the money on this when I already have two projectors).
