Hi I'm going to get a demo of the HS50 at my local Sevenoaks this coming Sunday alongside the Sanyo PLVZ1. Speaking to the guy there this afternoon he suggested I might also be interested in the Sharp XVZ90. They wouldn't be able to show me one of those but he said that it was quite a lot better than the HS50 for not much more money. Does anyone have any experiance of the two projectors who could confirm if this is true or not as if I did plump for the DLP (based on not being able to see and colour flashes) I would be tempted to go for the Sharp if what he has said is true. Added this second question as an afterthought. The projector will be used for TV watching as well as films so the ambient light level wont be that low, so as the Optoma has a much higher lumens rating than the Sharp (1300 against 600) would that be more of a bonus for us than the Sharps much higher contrast ratio (1200:1 / 800:1) ? Thanks for your help.
