I'm giving some thought to getting a projector and have been looking at these types, but I am only just at the early stages of choosing. I haven't seen much in the way of Home Cinema with a projector, but use a data projector regularly. On the subject of LCD against DLP, the LCD type seems to be much cheaper. For example, the cheapest I have seen the Screenplay 7205 for is about £4500. It has a 1280x720 resolution, 1100 ANSI Lumens and a 2200:1 Contrast Ratio. By comparison, the expected Panasonic AE700 is listed as having a 1280X720 resolution, 1000 ANSI Lumens and a 2000:1 Contrast Ratio. Admittedly, Panasonic quoted spec is a little below that of the 7805, but it is only expected to cost about £1400, less than a third of the price! Is the difference between their relative performances really going to be that significant to justify such a huge difference in cost?
