    Hi!
    I'm looking at buying my first projector. I don't really know much about them. Here are some projectors that I have found-are these projectors ones any good?


    Toshiba's TLP-S10E LCD projector

    Panasonic PT-LM1


    Panasonic PTAE200

    Panasonic PTAE300

    The projector has to be NTSC/PAL com

    I think the clear winner among that group is the AE300, which remains a very decent entry-level machine even though it's now two generations old, if you can get one it should be very cheap and many of us had an 300 as a first pj. :)

    If you're new to projectors there are several articles at ProjectorCentral which contain a lot of useful information, as well as reviews of several machines. If you want more reading then Projector-People also have a series of introductory articles about this technology.

    Happy reading. :)

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply.

    I’ve looking at buying my first projector. I’ve found two projectors that I like, the Toshiba and the Epson. I don't have a very big budget, about £500 to £600.
    I don’t want to buy anything from E-bay!

    I will be using the projector for watching DVD’s on, so it needs to be of decent quality.

    Toshiba TLP-S10

    Epson EMP-TW10H

    What one is the best ? I’m not very sure what one to choose.

    We're talking about the same thing in two threads :) .. I know nothing of either of those machines except what I read, and I'd choose the Epson if only because the dealers I looked at don't stock the Toshiba, which to my mind indicates it's probably not a good machine fro a home cinema.
