    Do you think 800x480 would look right for a projection view? I would think the loss of detail might ruin it.

    I know it lowers the res... but you have to admit, that you could get 3 projectors for roughly $1k

    Re: At this price...

    800:1 contrast ratio. OK no night time. Resolution sucks. I've got a 768 X 1024 and am not happy with it.

    Sorry, nice thought, but a definite NO GO for me.

    800 X 600 resolution is the key. That's pretty bad. 768 X 1024 is the absolute minimum on a 7 foot screen 10 feet from pilot, and then you'll see the pixels.

    I have to agree with Matt on this. 1024x768 is the lowest you want to go. It does not matter what the total res is, it is what each projector is capeable of. The pic can not look any better then what the res is for the projector.

    Agreed with Matt and Bob. To illustrate, my projector is native 800x600 and will run 1024x768, but it's still only 800x600. I enjoy my sim immensely (and this projector was free!) but when I turn around and look at the 19" CRT monitor behind me at the instructor station, I am amazed at the detail Im losing on this projector. When I buy a projector, Im going for the best resolution I can afford that will work with FS.
