    I have recently placed an order for the Sony KP44PS2 RPTV.

    But the supplier cannpt deliver the TV now and I was considering upgrading to a front projector like the Panasonic PTAE100E.

    I have not seen this projector, someone told me the image from a front projector is superior to a RPTV.

    I wondered how true this actually was.

    Also wondering what size image I could achieve in a 20-25ft room.

    Thx:rolleyes:

    With a projector of this type a 7ft wide 16:9 screen would be the biggest size achievable, without washing out colours too much.

    Not sure what the throw ratio for this PJ is.

    i was thinking about going the rptv route,but the screen burn and viewing angle issues put me off.
    i have a small room 12 by 12 feet and have now brought a sanyo z1 and am thrilled with it!at a distance of 10 feet i get a screen 72" by 40"!:D and the colours seem better than on the rear pro sets i have seen.
    i can't really comment on this vs. other pj's as i could'nt get demos of any others at the same price but i doubt you would be disappointed!
    get a demo now!(if you can?!)
