I've been interested in getting a LP340, however I put it on hold in light of the yet to be released Infocus HT projector. I thought by waiting I had nothing to loose, but now I'm concerned. On this forum I read that Infocus will be making the current LP340 less HT friendly in the near future. This demands I make a decision sooner than I anticipated.
Assuming the new Infocus HT projector uses the 16:9 DMD chip with a resolution of 848 x 480. Is this any improvement over the current LP340? The 16:9 mode resolution is the same, but when in 4:3 mode the LP340 should be vastly superior resolution wise. Am I missing something here?
By the way, I can't step up to the LP350, $3000 is my budget. And no DILA is not an option since lamp life and price is important. This unit will be used, 40% TV, 40% DVD and 20% video games. A 2000 hour bulb will last about a year in my house.
