Hello Lately my head has been severly hurting, The choice in LCD projectors is somewhat bewildering . My main interest is directed at the Pansonic "PTAE Siblings" 1) Is the PTAE-500 significantly better (in all aspects ) than the PTAE-300 ? 2) Would all present PTAE-300 users upgrade to PTAE-500, or has anyone already upgraded? 3) Is the PTAE-500 more geared towards HCPC & HDefintion TV users ? 4)Has anyone seen or done a comparision shootout/test yet? 5) Are pansonic LCD projectos reliable ? Errrmm ...Thats all for now , cannot think of anymore ?'s. Just a little info on me though, I'm interested simply in using a Projector via DVD player route , all I want is a good quality , but very large picture projected onto my wall. Do you guys think the PTAE-300 is enough for someone like me ? I'm not too fussy , Just want large screen entertainment at a reasonable price and quality, This would be my first ever projector ( At present I use a 14" portable TV in my bedroom ) So I want to start off with a bang!!!!!
