    I'm buying a Sanyo Z3 later this month.. though, I heared there is a PJ expo in september where the big names will introduce their new models to the public/pers? This means the older types (Z3, AE 700) will get a price drop very very soon? Maybe it's worth waiting a bit? but what will the price drop be? around how much money? People who have experience with price drops in the past in this kind of industry...

    I think they may have dropped as far as they're going to go. I finally decided to order a Z3 today, and when I phoned Ivojo they told me that they'd sold out and didn't know whether they'd be getting more stock in :eek:

    I ended up ordering one from Nexnix for the same price (with a stuck pixel check).

    I thought that. I was gonna ask them when they were expecting the Z4, but after weeks of deliberating and deciding to buy now at a fantastic price rather than waiting for the new models, I decided to just get on with finding a Z3!

    I've also bought a Samsung DVD950 from Richer Sounds to go with it. Once I get them I'm intending to use the forums to find out how best to set the PJ up, and then stop reading for a while. I know from previous experience that the worst thing you can do after buying a PJ is to start reading about how much better the new models are!

    If you want a Sanyo bargain get a Z3 NOW!!!

    If you want the latest spec pre order a Z4 - though expect to pay a sizable premium over the prices your being quoted on the Z3; its already been heavily discounted to clear the way for the Z4.

    Best regards

    They've dropped radically already - 50% or more in the past 6 months. Z3 is obscenely cheap at the moment with the bulb and warranty....PJ :)
