    in my personal opinion, the panasonic kicks the HS1's arse, big time.

    I found the panasonic to be much more pleasing to the eye. The Sony was a little fatiguing, even after only 15 minutes viewing.

    Mr Mitty, or can I call you Walter?

    Try here for specs...

    http://www.panasonic.co.uk/nw/products/product.asp?c=PTAE100E

    The Panny has swung it for me on its short through, 5000h lamp life, quiet running, £140 replacement bulbs, 16:9 panel, price & no need for special leads or connection box (like SONY). Need I say more?

    I can’t comment on the PANA AE100 but I have had the HS1 now for 3 months and I have yet to be disappointed in the picture or found that the picture gives me any fatigue.

    As pointed out the cables are expensive but I have another post on the go in this forum regarding the pin-outs to help people who want to make their own cables from the basic one supplied.

    You might also find not being able to mount the projector on the roof a problem (this is not for me but might be for you).

    If the roof mount is not a problem then I would seriously suggest you demo the HS1 and the AE100 and see what suits your eyes.

    Cheers

    Kev.

    I agree with you Kevin, people should definitely look at both of them. My opinion was that the panny was better, but thats just my eyes. No one should fork out that kind of money without having some idea of what they will get.

    Yeah! It's on the Panny UK site which seems to have a very unreliable server! Seems to be working at the moment though!!
