Is anyone else disappointed by the picture quality of the AE900?? I've had an AE100 for 3 years and loved every minute with it but felt it was time to upgrade with HDTV just around the corner. The mounting plate for my ceiling mount are the same for the AE900 as my old AE100 so the AE900 looked like the perfect upgrade. I got mine from Discount TV on Tuesday, since then I been playing around with lots of different sources including my Harman Kardon DVD-25 (480p via component) and my PC running at 1280x720 (720p) using WinDVD 7. So far I haven't really been gobsmacked by the picture and I haven't felt the need to show it off to anyone. The picture quality is a big let down. Sure, the contrast is greatly improved, there's zero SDE and it is quieter but the picture is so blurred that I get eye strain. I bought a HD ready projector so that HD material would be pin sharp which it isn't with the AE900. Even the PC desktop at it's "sharpest" is still blurred. If this is what SmoothScreen technology does then why bother??? It has the same effect as smearing vaseline on the lens. No wonder other manufacturers haven't tried to copy it. I'd choose SDE over a blurred picture any day. If you are interested in the AE900 make sure you see a demo. Don't make the £1300 mistake that I did.
