    Ok, so i've seen a lot of people say they can't get a decent comparison demo of a number of projectors.

    Well i'd like to offer people the chance to put forward a list of Projector models of say 5 to 6 (hopefully fairly comparible budgets) and arrange a two day demonstration for people to really get a chance to see the differences, with support from the manufacturors I'm sure we can make it an extremely useful event, remember the more interest we can raise the better (I'm sure with anough interest no manufacturer would not want to take part)

    ok so i've added a page to our website which will contain more info as and when it becomes available, please go to

    http://www.audiovisiononline.co.uk/x2804.html

    Location and date is yet to be decided but with the more interest from you guys the better this event will be, so don't delay this is your chance to finnally get a projector dem you've been waiting for.

    Best Regards

    Good idea, talked about recently.

    Have a look at the PJ poll - should indicate the most popular PJs, both LCD & DLP.

    HS20, AE500, Z2 etc. from the LCD camp & NEC HT1100, SIM & others from the DLP camp.

    Willing to give a hand if needed although from afar - Ireland.

    Cheers Kramer, i'd like to set up the event as a real test of what people would like to see as a comparison, i'll take a look at the PJ poll, but this may not indicate what actually people may wish to compare for purchasing reasons, rather then maybe a point of view.

    Thanks for the suggestion of help, always appreciate it.

    As a potential buyer i think this would be FANTASTIC. I would love to be able to compare the Z2 next to an AE500...

    Cheers

    oh dear, looks like another long trip , I'm interested in this, I've got the Z2 at the moment but I'd really like to see what sort of improvement could be made and how much it'll cost me. By the way, what sources will be used? Any chance of a HTPC with 1:1 pixel mapping wherever possible to get the best out of these? Appreciate that might be difficult but what if people bring their PCs along that are already set up for certain projectors, might make things easier.. just a thought.

    Cheers,
    Andy.

    As this will be in association with the manufacturors i don't see any issues regarding source products, but most certainly there won't be any issues if people want to try their own source

    Would be an idea to use HDMI/DVI sources, as i don't think many people have seen this yet

    Neil, most people's suggestions seem to have merited a response. Is the Benq not suitable for this get together?

    It may be bacause you have made reference to another retailer. Give ntslik his dues. He's trying to put an event together for everyone's benefit and your pushing another retailer. Hardly fair in this thread.

    Messiah, yes with hindsight I see what you mean.........

    I'm altruistic to a fault and sometimes miss the deeper meaning of things.

    Still a damn good pj though........

    Parmenion,

    We would include any projector if there is enough response, I'm new to the Benq range so can't make a personal response.

    But please refrain from using swear words like "Ivojo" on this thread.....lol

    LOL, I hope Ken isn't reading this. :)

    Either of the HDMI Pioneer players would be good to use in order to demostrate the merits of the format IMHO, especialy with the Sim range that support it (new D20 for example)

    I'll second a vote for the HT1000 or HT1100 btw.

    Gary
