    Right up to today I'd been researching pj to suit my room - 4.5m from screen to pj; 100inch screen; £1,200 budget - all pointed to AE700. I found a thread today about the new H30A. Headache!

    Either pj will suit, but the H30A is 854 x 480; AE700 is 1280 x 720. What's the difference and how will it affect picture quality?

    I will be using for mainly DVD but occasional Sky+ via SVHS.

    Best thing to do is go and view both, as they are different types of PJ's so you may find that you prefer one type rather than the other.

    Thanks Stripe - I have demo'd the AE700 and the old H30 along with Sanyo Z3 and Mitsubishi HC900 and was happy with either LCD or DLP. It's just down to budget now (and buying something that won't be obsolete in 6 months!)

    That's going to be tricky!!!

    The thing is that it won't be obsolete, just older technology...

    Hey not so much of the old H30 it's not even had it's first birthday, I got mine last April and it's picture still amazes me.

    I compared it with a friends AE500 and in my opinion it blew the panny away, how did it compare to the AE700?

    Regards, MikeD
