    Hi

    Anyone know of the nearest projector demo facilities around the Wiltshire area? I've read all about it, got the bug and I need to see it for myself.

    Thanks in advance.

    I live in Swindon and that would probably be your best bet. There is a Sevenoaks in Swindon but I havent been keen on their service so far!!

    I also beleive there are a few dealers in Bristol.

    I believe RADFORDS in Bristol might have some decently set up display devices

    Do have a decent demo room with an owl screen and they stock a range of PJs,

    noteably the Sharp Z91e, Panny AE300, sony HS2 + 10, X1.

    They may well get others on request.

    Good service, although obviously dearer than an internet supplier. I bought my AE300 from them and can thouroughly recommend them.

    Try Sevenoaks in Bristol (Whiteladies Road). They're a nice bunch in there as well.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I went to Radfords in Bristol today and looked at the Panny AE300 and Sharp Z91e, the Sony's weren't on offer today. It was really tricky trying to tell the difference between both of these pjs. Watching Jurassic Park the Sharp looked "grainy" on certain scenes yet the AE300 shone through, LOTR looked slightly better on the Sharp though compared to the AE300 (I thought this was going to be easy).

    I've looked at the Sevenoaks and V'Audio web sites as suggested by robocop and Geoffc10 so thanks for that guys but I think the next stage is to take a day off work for a trip to Nexnix as I'm really quite keen on looking at the Epson TW100 and the NEC HT1000. Unless anyone knows where I can see them closer to home?
