    It does have a lower lamp life. I don't know if you can set it on ecconomy to compensate.

    Just to clarify - the AV section on our site is all priced EX vat (our corporate customers prefer this) and the Home Cinema section is incl. VAT.

    The PT-LC55e is a great unit and yes it does have an economy mode.

    If you are planning on using a HCPC then I would look seriously at the PT-LC55e - if its purely video sources then possibly the PT-AE100 is still the better bet.

    Also (lets see if I can get this past Spectre :)) whilst we don't have the absolute lowest pricing on the PT-AE100 we also don't have the supply issues others seem to have.

    If you need a brochure on the PT-LC55e please mail me and I can send you one in PDF format.

    Best regards

    Joe

    I have tested the big brother PT-LC75E and the picture is better with a HTPC but both LC75E and LC55E has DCR (Digital Cinema Reality) circuitry (some kind of deinterlacer). PT-LC75E also has MLA (Micro Lens Array) panels reducing the screendoor. AE100E lack both DCR and MLA. Build quality on LC75E and LC55E seems to be better than the AE100E too.

    The picture on the PT-LC75E was great by the way. HTPC slightly better than S-video but the internal scaler and "deinterlacer" (DCR) was ok. One problem is that S4:3 mode is not working on RGBHV input. That could be a problem if running it with a 16:9 screen and the progressive RGB source lack aspect ratio control...
