I have a panasonic pt ae 900 at the moment and use it for normal home cinema in my living room with blackout blinds. Does not block out light completely. I have been pretty happy with this machine but after 2000 hours its coming to its end. I use a projecta procinema screen of 1.8m by 1.2m (85inch). I am about to buy a new projector, and decided to go with JVC. I can get the old versions new in box for: DLA x30 for £1600, x70 for £2800, x90 for £4000. My budget is approx £3000, and now not sure what to do, buy a new x35 or stick with one of the older models. My gut is telling to stretch to the X90, but is it worth the extra cash? Sense is telling me to go for the X30 and save some cash. I do not have a dealer nearby to review the various models. I will have to travel the week after next to the dealer (by plane) but knowing myself I will be too impulsive, and buy the most expensive one. Please help with projector advice and do I need to change my screen?
