Hello to all from a newbie !! I've decided to take the plunge into the land of large images, the only thing is that its impossible to demo where we live. I've decided to go the lcd route as I have blue eyes and seeing as i can't demo, don't want to risk seeing rainbows, also a little ambient light will be present. I can order either the Z3 or the AE700 of the net from Barcelona ( 1200 quid each ). From what I gather they are both good pj's, especially for my first. My living room is 4.5mtrs x 4mtrs and the pj would be on a shelf on the back wall projecting to a screen 4 mtrs away. I will be feeding it a 12mtr S-vid from sky+ and will be buying a HD DVD player (can't decide which yet). I know the 700 is more versatile positiong wise, but also the dust blowing thingie on the Z3 sounds very practical (its quite dusty, and a lack of local technicians). I'm confused as which to buy, which would you ?? PS the HS50 is 1900pounds so thats out of the question for a first pj, altho they are quoting 1 week delivery !!
