I need advice on scaling. I project text. It seems that SXGA would really give me a big boost in quality. However, I notice that companies list their native resolution and then their maximum resolution. In the past I have read on projector central that really the native resolution on the projector is as high as you can go. Now in the information on scaling I seem to be getting a different take. Now projector central seems to be taking the position that through "scaling" higher resolutions are possible.

Can someone clarify? Is higher than native resolution really possible or not?

IN Addition: For showing word docs on lights on room with 20' x 20' room would I be better served by spending additional money on lumens and contrast rather than worrying about resolution? Thoughts would be welcome.

i can't say about DPL projectors.
about LCD. i guess, if you choice higher than native resolution you will get lower quality of image cause some pixels will lost during conversion from higher resolution to lower (native LCD matrix resolution).
you didn't recognize this effect, then you work with pictures or video , but with text you may get some artifacts in image (with small font size).

PS: sorry for bad english - i not native here...
