Re: 1080 vs 720 worth the money?

I think that you need to compare PJ against each other on their merits, at each price point. So compare all $1k PJ against each other, regardless of resolution. 720p vs 1080p is just another spec, no more important than the contrast specs, and the optical quality, and maybe less. So depending upon your needs, a 720p may well be much better than a 1080p.

There is a mystic that 1080p is a special thing, but its only marginally better than 720p, in resolution only. On the other hand, there has been such a rush to 1080p, because there are better profit margins, so that your 720p market is very small. That may be the worst detriment of 720p.

After upgrading from my Panasonic ax200u 720p to Mitsubishi HC6500 1080p I'm a very happy camper.
