    Hi

    As you may know from my previous post I have managed to mess up my panasonic ae300 projector (removed and refitted the 3 lcd panels :oops: )

    I am considering replacing it with the sanyo z3 instead of having it repaired

    Has anyone changed from a ae300 to the z3 and do you think it was worth it?

    I will be running it via component from the player and recorder in my signature with sky converted to component via the dvd recorder(at least to start with :devil: )

    all opinions welcome

    I think you should be looking for something with a sealed optical assembly just in case the urge takes you again...PJ :)

    Good point :)

    However at least the sanyo has panel cleaning holes that can be accessed without opening it up.

    Also I promise never to touch the optical assembly again. Honest ;)

    Any opinions? :lease:

    Z3 with cheap filters (lee cc20r and cc10y) is great. Dont know how it compares with ae300 :)

    A someone said recently the Z3 is akin to the AE700 and presumably the 700 is much better than the 300...PJ :)

    Yep the Z3 directly competes with the AE700, and the AE700 is LOTS better than the AE300, therefore....

    My mate has a 300 and I have a 700, and he is talking about upgrading when he can afford it.

    Thanks to you all :thumbsup:

    I have decided to order the z3 from ivojo. With the good price at the moment and the extra lamp offer, it seems the right time :D

    My z3 was delivered today while I was out, so they returned it to the depot :mad:

    I either have to wait until Monday for them to deliver it again, or make a 120 mile round trip tomorrow to pick it up :(

    Warm the car up :D
