    How long do people expect before there is a price drop in the Screenplay 7205? Especially considering the 7210 is on its way.

    I understand the price of the 7205 in the USA has already dropped to under $6000. May be the same will happen here soon.

    7205 is reduced from £5000 to £3500 according to the news post on the home cinema choice home page. Nice little saving that!!

    What about the 5700? Isn't there a 5705 coming out soon?

    5700 is down to £2000 and the 4805 to £999, they were going for this price at the Manchester show this weekend. I saw both in action, saw rainbows on the 4805, but the 5700 was much better, but for twice the price it should be.

    I also saw the Optoma H57 and H77 (they were selling this for £3k), and the ProjectionDesign Action Mk3. Saw rainbows a couple of times on the H57, and the Action just made my eyes hurt, the H77 though looked fantastic, I want one. :lease: No one was showing LCD's though so couldn't really do a back to back.

    I can't beleive how much DLP's have come on over the last 12 months, I used to have real problems with them, but sat and watched the H77 and 5700 for some time with no ill effects. I was looking to go the Z3, AE700 or HS50 route (my budget is £1.5 to £2k), but think I might hold out for a DLP now.

    The 7205 at £3500 is very tempting. I think I might go for that if I can manage to get a demo of one and am happy with it.
    So, are these prices taking affect immediately?

    A calibrated NEC HT1000 should still cut the mustard and compare to the H77 et al. The black level and overall PQ is ASTOUNDING.

    I can validate this as a former owner.

    Cap :)

    Sounds good Gary, but I'm having to prioritise at the moment, just got planning permission through for my dedicated HC room (alright then, house :D ) so the PJ won't be coming until that's finished, I'm sure it will be worth the wait though.
