It can't possibly look worse than the orignal DVD Stargate from Live. I just watched this movie last night on my brand new ViewSonic 830 at 81" diagonal and it was horrid. In parts of the movie whole segements of the left hand side of the image was missing. A bright line extended down the right hand side during the whole movie. Several artifacts were visible during the movie. I always like this movie on my 27" 10 year old Zenith now is absolutely unbearable. I hope it didn't damage my projector or screen.
