    Question DLP projector thoughts

    Hey guys, I'm looking at buying a DLP projector and I found this one from Infocus that looks like a good buy. It's called the X1. I just wanna know what everyone thinks about it, and pros and cons if you have any knowledge in this area. I'll mainly be using this for watching DVD's at home and I would like to know if it will perform well.

    Here are some specs:

    Aspect Ratio: 4:3 standard; 16:9 wide

    Image Size (diagonal): 2.7’ to greater than 21.6’ (0.8m to greater than 6.5m)
    Light Source: 150W SHP/ 3000 hours
    Native Resolution: SVGA (800 x 600)
    Projection Lens: Zoom lens with manual focus and manual zoom adjust
    Projection Methods: Front, rear, ceiling
    Video Compatibility: NTSC, PAL, SECAM, EDTV, HDTV (1080i and 720p RBGHV)
    Maximum Projection Distance : 32.3’/ 9.8m

    Native Res is a bit low. You should also look for keystone correction.
    I want to learn more and more to see as beautiful what is necessary in things; then I shall be one of those who make things beautiful. Amor fati: let that be my love henceforth! I do not want to wage war against what is ugly. I do not want to accuse; I do not even want to accuse those who accuse. Looking away shall be my only negation. And all in all and on the whole: some day I wish to be only a Yes-sayer.

    The native res is what the reflective lcd panels are actually design to produce. Various interpolation schemes can fake higher modes.

    Keystone correction removed the trapazoid output form that can occur from pointing at a screen too high or low.
