My first experience of a PJ was the infocus 110
at a HIFI show.
I phoned a shop in Glasgow and he said they had nothing
under £5000 tho they would be getting the screenplay 7200
maybe at £6500
I dont have a dedicated room,and see it more like a slide pj
that I bring out when necessary,tho I could mount it on a back wall which would be roughly 15ft.from the screen.
The room has 4 windows on one wall,and none on the others.
I see this a mainly for watching dvds.
The panasonic ae100 seems an obvious choice tho now to be superseded by ae200 tho no date or price for this.
Ideally I would spend </=£5000
I quite liked the infocus/the shop guy implied this was the same as the toshiba which was cheaper tho they didnt sell them.
I was looking at sonvideo.com where theres an even bigger choice but was confused by mixed reviews some positive some negative of the same product
The Infocus LS110 and Toshiba's MT5 are clones with the Tosh being sold a good deal cheaper for some reason at around £3500.
Both are good buys but I did somtimes see some rainbow effect.
If your willing to spend up to £5K why not considder importing the Sharp 9000 at £4000-£5000 as others on the forum have.
Another PJ that surprised me was Epson's TW-100 LCD which has superb contrast for a LCD type and I think sells for around £3500.
