    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend the best/cheapest place for a HS2. I've so far had www.digital-point.co.uk recommended.

    Ta,

    Mel

    If you mean the Sony HS2 LCD projector you would be better putting this in the LCD section of the forum. If not then ignor this :)

    Mel, I've searched and you've already found the cheapest place for a multiregion HS2 (digital-point @ £599). RGB Direct have it for £594.97 inc. delivery for region 2. Probably worth the extra £5 for region free though. :)

    Have you thought about hanging on a month and seeing what the Toshiba RD-XS30 is like? It's cheaper (£525) than the HS2 and has a larger HD (60GB). I know I will.

    Yes waiting for the Toshiba may be a good idea (only 11 days!). The only thing the Panasonic HS2 has which the Toshiba doesn't is the JPEG viewer. Some people love this and some (like me) are yet to use it (although I may get a digital camera soon). The Toshiba has a 60GB HDD though (compared to the 40GB of the HS2). Thus the Toshiba might be a good purchase.

    I don't think the jepg viewer on the HS2 is a big selling point as most Digital Cameras can plug straight into the tv,or bung them on a cd-r and stick it in the DVD.Most software that comes with your burner will do it ,nero does.
    I was going to buy the HS2 a few months ago but am holding out for a multi-region tosh.

    You never know your luck! Most of their other prices seem expensive in comparison to some other sites, interesting they are still advertising the e20 at £799!

    I don't believe futuretronic exist anymore. I reported this to Pricerunner where I found the link & they have investigated & agree & have taken them off their listings.

    hi,

    Yes, they do apparently exist but difficult to get hold of. I eventually did speak to someone on the phone that explained that they sold out of the HS2 in April. However, after the conversation I would certainly not be purchasing anything from them over the net or by Mail order. They seemed a little vague to say the least.

    cheers

    Mel

    "I don't think the jepg viewer on the HS2 is a big selling point as most Digital Cameras can plug straight into the tv..."

    If this is correct, then can the photos be copied onto a HDD. If so which machines?
