The LG HS201 is a SVGA projector (800x600 pixels DMD chip) that uses the PhlatLight PT-54 LED chipset for illumination, whereas the HX300G is a XGA projector (1024x768 pixels DMD chip), no questions about that.
What i am not sure is which PhlatLight chipset is used in the HX300G for the reasons i stated above, i.e., the PT-85 is optimized for 16:9 chips, be they DMD, LCOS, SXRD or LCD chips, so i doubt that LG would be using the PT-85 to illuminate a 4:3 native chip like the one used in the HX300G...
On a side note i am nothing short of AMAZED after seeing the calibrated image provided by the LG HS201 that i just purchased, and i am posting my opinions on the LG HS201 thread...

P.S: It appears that the HX300G will be using the PhlatLight PT-121 chipset, which is a variant of the PT-120 that is currently being used in all of those LED illuminated front projectors that retail for over $13.000 !
