I just received a new Epson TW100H 800: contrast LCD 16x9 WXGA projector to demo in my dedicated home theatre. The theatre is small only 12x12 and the projector can only be placed back about 11 inches from the screen. I currently own a NEC LT240 DLP that I have had for about 4 months now. I wanted to get a second pj with native 16x9 aspect and higher resolution WXGA. I originaly had a Panasonic LT300U which was nice in terms of colors,no visable pixels (that new lens technology on this machine is great) but the resolution just wasn't that good when compared to the DLP I already own. This pj is only SVGA. I returned it and finally got the new improved Epson on Thursday and demoed it with DVD and HDTV on Friday. The new Epson has great color and the contrast is OK but not on the level of the DLPs. Watching DVDs I could see some pixel structure in bright scenes but not bad. On friday however, I hooked up the DIRECTV HDTV and the results in this size room were terrible. It was like looking out a window but through a definate screen. The better the source HD the more crisp is the image and also the perceived pixels. I went back to my NEC LT240 which is DLP and XGA 4x3 and the picture was fabulous with no visable pixels from that distance. So I returned it and will wait for an affordable DLP 16x9 WXGA. Whatever techology Panasonic used on the LT300, if they ever offer that in a WXGA version LCD for under 4K, I'll be the first one in line to get it.
