timctx, same debate with no real answer, of course. I have mentioned, on HD content (over the air PBS), last Saturday, viewing a $1200 projector and a $5000 projector and a $10,000 projector, the differences were slight..and this comment came from about 10-12 people who wandered into viewing room at a hi end dealer. The same thing happens with my EDTV Panny plasma. At distance of 12 feet plus, HD content looks about same as the same HD content compared over a HD display..in the same room in my home. The Panny looks great on HD content when viewed at 12 feet plus. Same thing holds true, to my eyes, on front projection when viewed some further away than most people view. I prefer to view displays screen further away than 'average'. Anyway, which proves we all see things differently in this world. Of course, we knew this.
