    Just been to sevenoaks in Manchester and was blown away by the IN82 and IN78 but the throw is too far for my room, from screen to PJ it will be 10ft, I do like my DLPs but now everything has been thrown into the air, I think I will go 1080p purely so I dont have to upgrade again in a few years, so is there a mega difference betwen DLP and LCD what would you guys recommend? I have around £2000 to spend.

    The Mitsubishi HC6000 is said to match DLP sharpness with very respectable blacks and shadow detail. I am a DLP fan and that is where I would look first if I was looking to switch away from DLP.

    All in your opinion obviously. ;)

    Be wary of the link....it is not a review! It is a 'comparative notes' feature, hardly in-depth.

    Why not get yourself over to Roy Jowett AV who have a wide range of 1080p models available to demo. They're not too far from you.

    :)

    The only thing which would concern me about the AE2000 would be the image sharpness.
    Art Feierman, in Projector Reviews, whose reviews I respect, praises the AE2000 except in one respect, sharpness, which he describes as softer than most of the competition. As a 1 chip DLP fan sharpness is very high on my priority list, hence my preference for the Mitsubishi HC6000.

    maverick,

    What size of screen do you have, my IN78 is about ten feet from a 84" diagonal screen and it fills it spot on with no visible pixel structure, there's a little zoom left as well. When I went to buy a new PJ at the tail end of 2006 I looked at most of the LCD's of the time and the IN78 blew them all out the water. One thing to remember though is the Infocus machines are bright which believe me is a very good thing.

    IN78 v's the IN82, interesting, how did 720p look against 1080p, good choice one of those two...:thumbsup:

    Well Ive ordered a Panny 2000 for £1900 with the ceiling bracket included, from the reviews etc this PJ looks the dogs and with the zoom it should more than do, with regard to the IN78 v IN82 there was a difference in sharpness but certainly not £1500 worth difference.
