i've sifted and searched and these 2 seem to be the favorites in the relatively inexpensive models. i'll be using the unit with a 10 year old pioneer elite rear projection set (not 16:9 ratio). i plan on going HDTV in 2-3 years. i just want to check to see if there is any compelling argument for one over the other (or something else) for my particular setup. thanks very much!
