    Hi everyone,

    First time on this forum. I've done a search but can't seem to find any comparisons.

    I'm looking to buy either the Infocus Screenplay 4805 or the Panasonic AE700.

    Has anyone had experience of both of these, or recommend either of them?
    +/- of either models.

    Also wanting it to be useful for high definition.

    Any posts on this thankfully recieved.

    Thanks in advance

    Timbo. :)

    The 4805 can't natively display high definition which would give the Pana the advantage if this is important. However, do a search for vertical banding on this forum and then add the Sanyo PLV-Z3 to you list.

    The 5700 is a fantastic projector which will downscale high def very well but it is still not native 720p.

    Ivojo,

    Do you think the screenplay 5700 will be better or worse than say the
    Panasonic 700 or Sanyo Z3, which have native 720p in LCD?
