I game all the time on my dlp mitsu hc 1500. Thing is sick! You might get some more clarity for FPS long range shots with an LCD tv, but have some friends over and see what they prefer. I guarantee you it won't be the tv

If you blew up that 42"LCD image to 106" I'll bet the projector would look as good if not better. All in all... 100" of gaming on a 720p projector is way more fun &more exciting. I think you'll agree.

I was talking about the LCD tv only. If you blew it up to 106 I think your projector would be sharper regardless of the gaming mode.
I posted some pics a few posts ago...just to show the brightness in ambient light in low lamp mode.. I can keep the lights pretty well lit . I haven't had any lag effect that I can tell when playing the Xbox360 . Screen door effect doesn't exist for me at 8-10ft. So I guess it just depends on what projector you have when gaming. The Mits, has done me good.

Actually, I doubt it. Remember, an LCD projector has a tiny, tiny LCD in it. By comparison, the pixels in an LCD TV are huge. If somehow you could manage to blow up a 42" LCD to 106", IMO the image would probably be sharper. Too bad the lens would probably cost a million bux.

How about if you did the opposite. Instead of blowing up the 42", how about decrease the projector to 42". Still think it would be less sharp? Just curious.

It would be more blurry. The larger surface area of the larger lcd would make for non-uniform focus. That is the reason they started using the smallest panels they could in projectors, as it allowed the whole panel to be in focus.

Reason why Panny has a gaming mode is due to their style of signal processing, it introduces some lag which is not as much obvious in other PJ's and hence why they came up with the "Game mode" to reduce this lag. Of course, based on their marketing, one would think the AX200 is the best PJ for gaming (the brightness does work really well though) but in reality, they are hiding up their own introduced flaw. Notice on the their 1080p models, they have removed the game mode as the signal processing mechanics are now different.
