    Yes, PriceJapan.

    Saw the HS10, and really liked it. When I saw PJ had the HS20 for £1775 + VAT .... it just had to be done :)

    Was very tempted by the Infocus 5700, but really need some spare cash for a screen, AV amp, sub, rear speakers etc :rolleyes:

    i am very tempted to order a HS20 from pricejapan as now i have moved my room around i could fit one in i think. Looking at the throw calculator on projectorcentral for the HS10 i can fill a 81inch wide screen from 13ft, but this would be quite close i.e about 6inch from the wall, does anybody know if the fan blows out of the back and would therefore be too close and does the HS20 have lens shift, thanks.

    I am looking forward to reading the first AV review as well.

    I wonder how long it will take for the HS20 threads to turn into a information feeding frenzy just like the HS10 caused about this time last year.

    Was great reading though, bring it on......

    Pricejapan are getting their first batch on 25th October :clap:

    HS20 vents from the front like the HS10.

    Not sure about the lens shift, don't think so though. Seems to be some debate about the throw of the HS20, with some people claiming it will have a shorter throw than the HS10. Think I am going to delay purchasing a screen until I can measure the image directly.

    Right guys i am sure that this is the pj for me, after a lot of measuring up and calculations, well based on a HS10 so if the throw distance changes materially then im f**ked, unless i build a bigger screen. Already built a 83inch wide screen as i want to hook it up as soon as i get it to check for dead pixels. Still need to figure out how i do that yet so any ideas would be great. I have now also ordered this from pricejapan and am no. 11th on the list :smashin: . This should mean that i get one of the first batch to go out on the 27th October :eek: . Only time will now tell if it is good or bad news being an early adoptor :)
