4:3 or 16:9 Theater?

We get a lot of email asking which is the best projector, A or B? Quite often one of them is native 4:3 and the other is 16:9. There is no way to answer the question "Which is best?" until the buyer decides if he or she wants to set up a 4:3 or 16:9 theater.

Unfortunately almost nobody thinks to make this decision ahead of time. But it needs to be done. It is the most important decision to be made in designing a home theater. To emphasize this I have just updated Your Biggest Decision: 4:3 or 16:9? Please tell everyone who is planning a home theater to read this article before they buy a projector. You can use the Send this Page link at the bottom of the article to distribute it easily.

NEC has just gone below the $1000 mark with the impressive VT46, just announced this week. This unit delivers superb projection power for the money. Our review has just been posted.

We expect to review the Optoma H76 before the end of the month. Two other lower priced XGA resolution DLP products will be reviewed next week. Check back next week for details!
