Okay, so what do you really give up going with an with a 1280x1024 versus the 1388x780 (or whatever the number is)? It seems like most projectors out there are not true WXGA, yet there are a lot of people still purchasing them to watch 16:9, or even 2.35:1 formatted material. Am I limiting myself by only looking at the WXGAs?

It is very simple, Uther. When you use a native 4:3 projector with a 16:9 screen, you simply make no use of 25% of the projector's pixel count, and 25% of its lumen output. Conversely, the same loss of exactly 25% (pixels and lumens) happens when you project a 4:3 image using a 16:9 projector. Are these important? Only you can decide...

It all comes down to what you want to watch more Tv or DVD's. Also you can use a lens (ISCO II or Panamorph) and have the best of both worlds. Also the lenses have the advantage of transferring from one projector to the next... that is what I did.
