    Hey guys, Im looking at buying my first projector, and im on a budget. I live in Australia and have seen a LG projector model RD-JT92. It is DLP. If ya have a look at the specs http://au.lge.com/md/product/prodcat...Id=1100000385#

    I just cant work out about HD. Can you tell me what the go is with native res and HD compatible and all that?

    Thanks

    Your link wouldn't work, but native res. is the actual resolution the projector will display. HD compatible means the projector will accept a HD signal, but it will scale(convert) it down to the native res. of the projector.

    Ah k, thanks. It says that its native res is WVGA (854 x 480) and max is SXGA 1280 x 1024. So its not actually displaying true high def then. Hmm..bugger. I really like the picture on it and i can get it pretty cheap. But maybe i should spend the extra on the PTAE700E Panasonic. Not that in Australia we have much in HD yet but i guess then its gonna be more future proof.

    Well, no shame in a good ED projector either.

    The Pany 700 is maybe the best buy out there right now, on an HD projo.
