    There is the ae-100 and far below on the plains are everything else..............

    I have an offer for a Mitsuibishi LVP-X50U (new model) for about 700 quid more than the ae-100. The Mitsuibihi is an XGA while the Panny I think is SVGA. Now when matched up:

    1)Panny £700 less, Something I can invest on a good screen instead of the wall.

    2) Mitsuibishi XGA.

    3)Panny 16x9 panel.

    Is the throw distance simmilar for both? The £700 is something I can afford if it really is better.

    What do you guys suggest?

    I was in the same boat m8.
    Opted for the panny and a fab electric true 16x9 screen.
    I am using the output of my Home cinema PC to power the Panny.
    It is absolutely fantastic.
    Try them both out though first....beauty is in the eye of the beholder ;)

    I am India where the only companies are, Barco, Philips and Epson. Some importer had a Mitsuibishi and he came home to demo it. It was nice but the black bars were a tad distracting.

    But no one has the Panny so if I choose the Panny it would be a blind decision based only on this forums opinion.

    1. At XGA, the Mitsubishi will have 1024 pixels wide and 768 high but on 16:9 you will only be using 572 pixels. so 1024 X 572 compared to 856 X 480 for the PT-AE100.

    2. The PT AE 100 will probably have a much lower throw distance and be optimised for video whilst ths Mitsi will be data optimised.

    If it were me I'd spend the 700 on a good screen.
