Dan, I have watched DVDs with my friend's Proxima DX3 and tried everything I could to see the rainbow, like moving head back and forth, scrolling eyeballs left and right. I just didn't see the rainbow artifact. Only when I used a white pencil moving across I could see a slight trace of colors. He uses his homemade HTPC (1GHz T-Bird, Elsa GeForce2 MX) through the VGA cable(not DVI). The result was amazing! Since his DX3 (costed him $5k) is out of my price range, and I have read rave reviews about LP340/350, I am interested in getting one of these, probably refurbished or demo to cut the cost further. Also I am considering LT84/LT140. I will be real happy to see the same result at my home(I have 2 PCs at home that I can use as HTPC, all I need is a nice sound card). A real HT projectors, like Jason mentioned, are beyond my price range.
Back to my original, has anyone done any comparison between XGA and SVGA+len? How do they compare as far as the overall image quality? I am really curious about this. I will be using a 92x52 screen, considering it's pretty big, do i really need a XGA? I don't know how SVGA looks on this size of screen, with or without the an anamorphic len.
