Guys Well, after about 12 months of "desire" and looking I am about to lay down the cash for one of the above projectors. Now all you purists without 2 kids, wife, mortgage etc. will be choosing on the basis of colour saturation, hues etc. For me it is a matter of money. The best price I see for the Ae500 is £1050 on Komplett.co.uk The best price I see for the Z2 is £1220 on ivojo.co.uk I am projecting from a PC and will do the 1:1 pixel matching. Because of the constraints of the room I have to offset the image slightly from vertical. I have heard that only the Sanyo can offset the image optically. If I have to use keystone correction (like with the Panasonic) I will be losing the 1:1 matching of my pixels and therefore much of the benefit of 1280 resolution. This tells me I have to go for the Sanyo and pay an extra £170. Is this true? Are these projectors cheaper elsewhere?
