Does the amount of ANSI in DLP projector matter?

    Spoke with a rep from PLUS Corp. They have several models of Front DLP Projectors. They range from 400 to 2200 ANSI Lumens.
    The rep said that 800 ANSI is all I need. Anything else for a home theater is way overkill and that I would be dimming the brightness down.

    Any truth or experience in this area would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    In a true home theater environment with complete control over lighting 800lumens should work well enough. Keep in mind that most front CRT projectors are around 400-600 lumens if I recall correctly. It seems that most of the popular lcd and dlp projectors are in the 1200-2000 lumen range. It really will depend heavily on the environment its going into.
