I'm a newbie doing a new HT in a spare room and have been shopping for components, trying to educate myself. I've read a lot of articles about different projector models and specs and I'm confused about 4:3 vs. 16:9 aspect ratio. The HT will be primarily devoted to DVD movies, but also some TV. I've noticed as I've priced and compared various models that the price seems to go up exponentially as the resolution goes from 1024x768 to 1280x720 and from native 4:3 to native 16:9. But while the price goes up,it seems like the lumen rating drops off dramatically. I would like to have a fairly bright picture without having to completely black out the room. Actually, I know there's not a hard and fast answer, but I'd like some opinions from some of you who've been there. Would I be happier getting a brighter XGA 4:3 and cheaper projector or a 16:9 1280x720 and less bright, more expensive unit? My budget is around 2k. Any recommendations on brand or model? Thanks in advance!
