    Hello there - there could be an alternative to everyones favourite...anyone had any info on the all NEW SVGA 800 x 600 1200 lumen model PT-LC55E

    http://www.projectorcentral.com/consultants_corner.cfm?ci=mobile_projectors

    its a couple of hundred pounds dearer and isn't true 16:9 but is apparently doing rather well across the pond

    thanks to Joe for the info (will be in touch in the v near future)

    Any info welcome as always

    Berth

    1200 lumen's sound's a bit much for Home cinema use, unless you also need it for presentation's at work.

    The Ae100 is plenty bright enough in eco mode, standard mode is 700 lumen's.

    I think it is the LC75 that is selling like hot cakes in the US. Probably because the AE100 hasn't arrived there yet.

    I was looking for the LC75e too but was given an extortionate price.

    Regards.

    As you say the PT-AE100 has not been released as yet in the states - I'm not sure when its release date is due.

    The PT-LC75E is the 1024 x 768 model whilst the PT-LC55E is the 800 x 600 model.

    Both of these models have two RGB inputs that will also accept Component video with the correct cable.

    Price wise these models are PT-AE100 +£250 and +£750 respectively - and they are also both IN STOCK.

    Best regards

    Joe

    PS I have heard of customers paying £1600+ to get further up the PT-AE100 queue.

    I got a 75e two weeks ago and am over the moon with it.

    If you've got the money for one buy a 75 you wont be disappointed.
