    If I understad correctly, the 4805 is awesome but not true hi-def.

    The 5000 is hi def but not DLP.

    Any chance they'll have a sub-$2000 DLP Hi-Def projector soon? 'Cause that's what I'd buy!

    Stephen, I guess that's a year or 2 away yet.
    Are you totally against an LCD 720p projector?

    I wouldn't be surprised to see a $2k 'Mustang' DLP (1024x576) from Infocus displayed at CES in 3 weeks. Since NEC has already introduced one at that price point.

    There is a newish DLP chip, the HD3 that may provide a less expensive 1280x720 solution. It is used in RP right now but it might show up in FP within a year (raw speculation on my part).

    I'm not 100% against LCD, but DLP has always had more HT followers than LCD. I've simply heard better things about DLP.

    I guess I'm wondering what makes a company decide to choose one over the other...what went into the decision to make the 5000 an LCD instead of a DLP?
