    Ok, I know it's not even avalible yet, but there must be some internet bargains for the Sanyo Z4. Who's selling it the cheapest??

    Everywhere I've looked it's £1291 including VAT.

    Wouldnt it be refreshing to have people ask "who gives the best service" Instead of "who is the cheapest".
    Often it is the same people who want cheapest that end up on the forum begging for help from the likes of Joe Fernand etc. Help they would get for free and in person if they tried buying from Specialist instead of box shifter.
    I am not having a go at this poster I hasten to add, it is just a general comment on the number of "where is the cheapest" quotes. More often than not a wee bit more paid to a great company, pays dividends and saves you money in the mid to long term.

    Cheers

    I'm with rdundas on this one. And with a PJ, especially one that's just come out, good service may come in useful...PJ

    It's a valid point, and in a perfect world, everywhere would have perfect customer service. Sadly, we dont live in a perfect world, and I'm on a budget, and £1300 is more than I can afford to spend on the PJ. I was looking at the Infocus Screenplay 4805, however after watching a film today on a friends 4805 setup, my wife suffered headaches, and noticed alot of rainbows. She has suffered headaches with other DLP PJ's, but is fine with LCD. I would go for a Z3, but as these are no longer avalible (we wont be buying a PJ untill the end of next month), the Z4 looks the best bet, but at £1300, it's more than I want to spend.

    The Panasonic AE700 or Hitachi PJTX100 are still excellent machines for under 1K. The Hitachi hasn't dropped in price significantly yet and is probably due a few hundred off, the 700 has dropped quite a lot and may drop more now with the 900 in the wings. The Z3 was a bargain because of price and the warranty, not because of performance vs the 700/TX100...PJ

    Ummm, thanks for the info. Reading a few reviews, both the AE700 and the PJ-TX100 sound very good.

    Yep all appear to be at 1291.33!!! Must just be coincidence :D

    I also agree with rdundas I'd always be willing to pay 5-10% more for a projector that I could see in the flesh and have a good demo of.

    Rather than just buying from a box shifter, that stacks 'em high and sells them low.
