    Hi guys,
    I'm wanting to buy a Projector but the more i look at whats available the more confused i seem to be.

    usage: DVD's and X-box.

    Currently i'm looking at these projectors...

    PANASONIC AE300
    SANYO PLV-Z1
    OPTOMA EP-737
    SONY VPLHS2

    I have read lots of good things about the Panansonic and the sanyo.
    some reasonable reviews about the Sony.
    One amazing review for the Optoma.

    There are differences in price and technology here, but i guess the bottom line is performance.

    With a budget stretching (and its a big stretch) to 2k would i be better off having a bit of cash in the pocket for the relative difference in performance.

    Please help a desperately confused soul! :confused:

    Mal.

    The only way you will know for sure is to demo them all yourself. It's no good going by others views cos what floats one boat may not float yours. Read all you can on these forums (most these players have been done to death) then get hold of demo units and go for the one that gives you the biggest smile :)

    Thanks for response.

    Indeed i've been reading as many threads as i can on a variety of pj.

    It is a very interesting subject if nothing else!

    regarding demo units, how do you go about this?
    In shop demos or can you take loan of a machine for testing?

    Do you know of any outlets that offer either of these services?

    Some dealers will allow you to have demo units on loan but is depenedant upon dealer and your negotiating skills :)
