Interesting article on AE-700 vs. AE-900 and the effects of just a small amount of ambient light in the room.

Basically, if you got just a candle burning in your viewing room then you can't tell the difference between the two.

I'm getting even more confused. This is the second time i've read the pany 900 isn't a great improvement on the 700 yet the i've read a review to saying its far superior to the benq 7700 which is meant to be much better DLP than the 4805 that the pany 700 used to be bench marked against. I can buy a 4805 B grade for £720 I'm starting to question weather some of these reviews are hyping the new D5 panel projectors to convince us to part uneccessily with the extra cash.

PS Sorry about the rant :suicide:

When you see a big ad selling 900 on the right of that Pana vs Benq review, you know why they came up with that sort of result.

It's sorta forgivable though, DLP sellers have been doing it for years...PJ :D

I don't really trust Ausmedia's reviews. They're a vendor, so they're likely to be biased anyway and they're rabidly anti-DLP.

Think i'm going to have to wait for a What Hi-Fi magazine or similar head to head review. Just hope they include a decent DLP into the fight.

I haven't seen a mainstream UK magazine do a review that I find will make me take any real notice, and technical info other than advertsied figures is no where to be found. I tend to rely on US publications like Widescren Review for definitive information and of course my own eyes when given the opertunity.

I think even if a UK publication was given the offer of getting a reviewer who could measure projectors and give technical info as well as the usual info, they wouldn't be interested.

I think some of you are missing the point of the article. Basically it doesn't matter what PJ you have (LCD or DLP). Even a very small amount of light in your room will kill the contrast ratio of your PJ.

You need to set in a bat cave guys :)

I thought that Poll started by Stuart stated that the max CR for front projection was 200:1 no matter what, so what's all the fuss about? :D
