    I would like either of these two projectors an was going to buy the 500 from Germany but having looked at pricejapan I see the yen is weak against the pound and I think I can avoid the VAT because I have a friend in Japan who can forward me the PJ.

    I have been planning to get the 500 because it has a scart and vga together with lots of connections. Ofcourse there is no scart on the japanese 500. Does the japanese 500 now have English menu? I notice pricejapan are offering a switched voltage model ideal for the uk.

    Looking at the Z2 i like it because it has the lens shift (i will not use this immediately as I am mounting onto a fixed shelf at correct heught but it is a nice feature). Also I notice that the Z2 has side venting which is probably good for shelf mounting (I was going to risk minimal clearance of 10cm on the 500 which was never a good idea...). However I have never seen the back end connections of the z2 japan model and wonder if I will need a convertor. It does have a VGA socket right as my HCPC is dual VGA?

    I would be very grateful for your advice chaps!

    Incidentally the price I will probably end up paying will hopefully be about £800 all in which is why I am definitely getting a Japan model. (My friend get an imac for £700 a few weeks back - its twice the price in the UK!)
