    I am thinking to get the Epson but have also been offered the Sanyo, which i believe is an older model. I will be projecting on the wall from approx 3 meters. Which one to go for? I have seen the various tests and they seem to be pretty good but i am tempted to go for the Epson as its a new machine and also has a 3 years warranty unless there are reason why i should take the Sanyo. Usage is DVD only. Many thanks

    I got an Epson laast week and am really pleased with it. For under £540 I couldn't find anything else to touch it. There is a load of threads on AVS forums that compare the two and the Epson always comes out well.

    I am only running it through s-video at the moment and can't believe the quality and lack of fan noise. Obviously this is currently considered a low spec machine, but what do you expect for this kind of price?

    Compared to my old Infocus LP400 it is in a different league.

    I couldn't compare between the two projectors but I have the Epson (in fact the slightly lower spec version without the 'H') - I think it's a very good projector for the money and I paid about £80 more than the current lowest price (Dabs I believe) less than 2 months ago.

    It's not a projector to go nuts on the screen size with. As it is I am using a 60" (diagonal) screen that I got free with the projector but at my viewing distance which is about 3m, the biggest image I can get without seeing the pixel structure is about 1.7m wide. Obviously it will be less if you have to sit closer.

    hope that is of some help
