    Wow, that's pretty impressive. I think I may have to do the same!

    A guesstimate on delivery would be nice though.

    I've just called them, and got the skinny.

    Projector is £999 + VAT.
    Delivery is £10 + VAT and is expected to be around mid November.
    Cards will not be charged until they send the projector to you.
    If you ask, they'll do a free dead pixel check before sending it out.

    I think that's all, and mine will be ordered shortly :D

    If the Z2 is as much beter in life than the z1 as paper specs seem to suggest then i think the Sony HS20 is looking expensive and the Optoma H56 price cut to £2500 is a bit pointless!!! DLP will have to fall alot more before it the deal looks as sweet as this!

    Just a brief note. Our Z2's will all be UK stock with all the accessories they're meant to come with.

    this sounds like a great price. I have a Z1 but like the sound a a higher res and especialy the lower noise as I have the projector no more than 50cm from my head when viewing. Any idea how much I would get for a Z1 with only 60 hours viewing.

    Thanks Graham,
    I think I'll pre-order tomorrow. I've just been looking at some of the first reviews of panasonic 500 and sanyo z2 on the AVS Forum.
    I'm been leaning towards the z2 and that price has tempted me to make the z2 my first projector purchase.

    Do you have to phone them to pre-order at that price? It's still quoted as POA on the website.

    Looking at the brochure, I think its wot i'm looking for :clap:

    Geez, I almost ordered one from PJ but that is an unbelievable price, I've just pre-ordered one, at that price it has to be the bargain of the century!
    By the way there's some user opinions popping up on www.avsforum.com in the projector forum if anyone's interested..

    Cheers,
    Andy.

    Yes phone them and they will send you a pre-order form (by fax or e-mail). The price is not on the site because Sanyo have given a pre-launch order price to Ivojo and may alter the price on launch. If you look at the price, lower than the current U.K. price of the Panny AE300 which is last years tech I can't see it being lowered on launch. :smashin:

    Are the mounts going to be any different? It would make sense if it was exactly the same as the Z1.

    Mounts may not be the same as the units are different sizes.
