Basically, I want a PJ. However, my budget is a max of £1500 - £2000, including a good screen. However, I am concerned. Every time I browse this forum there seems to be a lot of av entusiasts having problem after problem with a PJ or its susbsequent set up. I realise that they take considerably more effort than a TV, which I am happy to commit to. Its just that I dont wanna end up dissapointed. DVD images a a decent flat screen TV can look pins sharp, with decent black levels and contrast. Can a PJ really offer me this or do I compromise this for pure picture size. I suppose I am looking for reassurance form other dg'ers who debated a PJ purchase before buying. Like everthing AV, there are pro's and con's but am i worring too much or is it becasue regular posters here a simply more vocal and will not tolerate sub standard gear. For instance three models I have short listed have all had problems discussed here. PTAE100 - Blowing up power supply and screen door Sanyo Z1 - Excessive dust blobs Sony HS10 - Excessive fan noise ( more of a rattle !!) I fully intend to visit nexnix for a demo or two, but any advice accepted at this juncture. I am currently turning a spare room into a 13 foot cinema room, but at present, my heart says PJ, my head says TV. Thanks, Captain benefit (slightly uptight about it all).
