Hi, I was expecting my AE700 fan noise in low lamp mode to be very quiet indeed - from projectorcentral.com: "On the other hand, for those who have a small viewing space who might be opting for a smaller screen size, the low lamp mode reduces fan noise to almost zero and (presumably) extends lamp life somewhat. So that might be the preferred operating mode for some users." I can most certainly hear mine - it's noiser than my friends old Sanyo Z2 (both in low lamp mode) and can be quite obtrusive, especially with quiet scenes. I really thought the AE700 would be as quiet, if not quieter than a Z2, but in fact it's much louder. And the room temperature doesn't even hit 20 degrees before the fan starts to speed up and get even louder. The projector is mounted half way up a wall, so it's not as if it's catching any rising heat - there's no heating on at all and the nearest radiator is on the other side of the room anyway. Can other AE700 users comment about noise levels?
