    I need some advice from all of you experts out there. I am building a dedicated home theater setup with room-in-room construction, insulation, and all the other amenities I can afford.

    I am however at a loss for a projector. I have a budget of about $2k for one. Some needs are:

    -Must be native 16:9 (I will be using it primarily for widescreen DVD watching and prefer that screen ratio.)

    -Will watch some TV but we are not setup for HD yet.

    -I'm a real stickler for a clear, crisp picture.

    -I plan on a screen about 6' wide.

    Some people are telling me I don't need a real high res projector if all I am watching is DVD's. Is this true?

    What's the best projector out there to fit my needs for under $2k?

    I went throught this horror of making a decision a few years back when I bought a 36" tv. The projector choice is far worse. Please help.....

    The Panasonic L300U is a strong contender and is native 16x9... 1/4HD
