What aspect ratio do I want?

It all depends on what you are going to watch most—think about the following when making your decision:

Do you watch movies mostly on your screen or do presentations?

4:3 Ratio is still the standard for presentations where data and power point, excel type files are used mostly

16:9 is used for most movies, DVD, Bluray, and most TV providers offer hidef channels which are 16:9 ratio as well

Most television shows are still broadcast in 4:3 but 16:9 is taking over more ground everyday.

What if I watch both 16:9 and 4:3? How do I pick an overall screen aspect ratio?

We find when people know they have a pretty liberal mix of both 16:9 and 4:3 we suggest going with say a 120” 4:3 screen; this is a large 4:3 ratio (96”x72”) but when shot in 16:9 gives you a 110” 16:9 ratio (96”x54”) this gives you a good large size on both aspect ratios unless of course you have a 16:9 only projector
