Hi, I was thinking about getting my first PJ, a Sony HS2 (for about £1000) but after reading the forum for a few days it seems that a lot of people have one of the above Panasonic PJ's, and in particular the AE300 seems to be getting good feedback. I have seen the HS2 in action, but that was in a brightly lit shop with the image being projected onto a painted wall. I hope to demo the Panasonics some time, and know that whatever advice people offer me I will get the bigger picture (literally) by seeing the PJ's for myself. However: From what I have read the AE100 can be picked up for about £700, but there seems to be quite a few people who are having problems with it, and though it is a great price I don't really want to pay that for something that could not work in a few weeks time. The AE300 is about £1500 and the reviews are great, but this is £500 more then I was going to spend. The AE200 is about £1000, but I can't seem to find much info about it. Is anyone using one, and how does it compare to the AE300, is the AE300 worth £500 more. If anyone can add anything to the above to help me then I would be pleased.
