hi, i have a new sofa arriving soon and then wish to buy my 1st pj. wanted the z2 but with the hs20 at this price will go for that. got a new credit card arriving soon too.!
i need to measure up once sofa arrives. some q:
1. not sure to mount on coffee table from 8-9 foot or on a shelf or ceiling mount from 11-12 foot?
2.is it easy to build a diy mount for hs20?
3.want to buy a portable pj screen from drh. the lite model? any reviews?
4.going to use a 10m component cable from cambridge audio 53 dvd player. do you think i will need a pal prog scan player?
5. any other things i need to consider about before buying??
We can't really predict what Sony do in terms of deals or pricing, with PJ's we just sell at trade + vat and give the best service we can. I can assure you there is very little money made by anyone on PJ's!!!!!
Even at £1998 it's a cracking buy, compared to the retail of £2700 and also compared to the official sony trade price!
Are the 2 companies in your bit at the bottom - one and the same.
It all just seems a little bit odd, if no one makes much cash on PJ's how you can knock £500 off. Presumably all the other suppliers are jumpimg up and down now because discounttv MUST be getting the HS20'S A LOT CHEAPER.
These PJ's are new stock and the way these things usually happen is we take a batch at a certain price, this batch is just at a better price. Other suppliers have their own issues but there is nothing really special about us (apart from our 25 years of experience and great service, sorry, had to do it!)
I dare say if other dealers went looking for a deal they would get it, how much they would pass on is another issue!
Really though, I do feel retailers are a little unfairly treated. We mostly do our very best for you guys, its the manufacturers who muck around with prices, deals and service so much. All we basically do is look at what they cost us and sell it at that!
The HS20 price came completely out of the blue to me, these things just cannot be anticipated unfortunately
Sorry that it looked as though I was having ago. I wasnt, just a little p****d off that I have a PJ that is 8 weeks old that has dropped £600. To put a tin hat on it I have even had to send it back to Sony today because of a fault. Shame I cant ask for my money back.
Are you sure sneaky? I thought standard and cinema have the same lamp mode. It's only when you use dynamic do you get the extra light kick in, then the fan starts getting louder because the lamp is working harder.
Switching from standard to cinema, you heard the iris click in and out. No change in fan speed. Could be wrong though.
