Are the high-resolution home theater projectors good for spreadsheets?

My small business has an old inFocus that is dying (one pixel at a time). It is 1024x768 and rated at 3000 lumens.
I would like a higher resolution projector so that screen sharing, cad drawings and complex spreadsheets aren't down-rezed. At the same time, I'm thinking of upgrading from 100in to 120 or higher on the projector screen.
It appears that business projector resolutions typically max out at WXGA. So, I looked at home theater projectors that offer 1080p (more specifically the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5020)
Before I try it out I wanted to understand whether "home theater" projectors will give me the eye popping spreadsheets I'm looking for. Also, any other recommendations would be helpful.
PS. I don't care about portability.
