    I have read what reviews I could find.

    The NEC has more pixels, the InFocus has a nicer back panel (multiple component inputs).

    I planned to run 2 component cables to my projector - one from the set top box and one from the dvd player. With the NEC, I don't think I'd be able to get 480p into the projector.

    Should I think about a component video mux / switch? Is there such a thing?

    I am leaning towards the InFocus because it is newer technology -

    * longer lamp life
    * better back panel discussed avbove
    * I will usually be watching DVD's in 16:9 and the extra pixels on the NEC only come into play in 4:3

    Still, the NEC will be more versatile on terms of projector placement (less ditance for a given image size, I don't know if that means higher or lower throw, but whatever) and that might come in handy someday.

    Anyone have either of these or have any reccomendations / opinions? My budget is 3200 or so.
