And especially with the new release of 4K UltraHD televisions & projectors, I think that will be questioned even more.
However, I've been pretty happy with 720p. I don't notice a huge difference between 720p and 1080p movies, at least not as much as going from DVD to HD. Plus, I watch a lot of stuff that wasn't recorded or broadcast in HD (Youtube, DVD movies, TV shows on Netflix, family videos, etc.) and looks better upscaled to the smaller resolution of 720p rather than 1080p. But with that said, I would really like to see a relatively inexpensive 1080p LED projector show up. My Viewsonic LED was under $600 new (still is) and I like it better than my previous Mitsubishi DLP HD front projector - the LED model has amazing contrast, plus the bulb lasts forever and it turns on instantly, which is awesome. And also doesn't turn my room into an oven, which is nice
