i can see screen door on my 1080p if i'm sitting about 1ft away, but i'm never that close. there are great advantages of 1080p even if you only deal with 720p content.
I had a GT720 for a while but returned it, not so much for the 720P but the 3d problems which is too long a story to post about here especially since I posted about it in that thread. You can see a screen door on any PJ if you get close enough. I sat far enough away from the GT720 it was never an issue. I also noted that it seemed like the GT720 was just not as sharp as I thought it should be despite never having had a PJ before. My 8350 confirmed that as there is no comparison, (in my application, 120" screen) between 720p and 1080p. Now while I am impressed with my 8350, I can say that there is a definite diff between DLP and LCD.
What is my point? I was going to get the GT750 when it came out for 3d and use the 8350 for 2d. Well these secretive manufacturers came out with affordable 1080 3d units right after I bought my 8350 so I am second guessing myself. I could live with the GT750 for 3d viewing and quite frankly most material was fine for 2d viewing at the distances I view from. So yes, 720p on a 120" screen looks better than any 50" give or take TV because bigger is truly better here unless the PJ stinks.
So for the money the GT750 should be a fine unit for entry level and it has on board speakers and portability. I would probably have just kept the GT720 were it not for the Nvidia 3d issues and I called BS on that after spending what I did on my HTPC and Nvidia card and there they were again with their hand out. I mean I already had 3d on my DLP TV and I knew HDMI 1.4 was around the corner.
Let's be brutally honest here, look at your needs and viewing habits. Gaming is not going to be 1080p in most cases. Depending on your carrier, in some cases the best you can do is 1080i and that, in a lot of cases is upscaled in the cable box from 720p which ESPN and some others use. While some boxes do better than others, making 1080i from 720p sources yields a 720p picture because you cannot make what is not there, well, with the exception of frame interpolation but that does not change the pixel rate. Got it? You cannot add pixels that were never there. FI simply attempts to smooth things out by averaging.
I just wonder if the Optoma simply incorperated the 3DXL tech into the GT720 and called it a GT750. Seems that is the case and that would make the GT750 the current 3d high def PJ value leader right now. With it's short throw and bright picture, just put it on a table in front of you. It can make up to a 300" picture. Now Acer said they were going to do it months ago and released their unit in Europe but it never made it here. I wonder what they are doing now and why that 5360BD never made it here?
