Hello to all, I'm new to this site and would appreciate some feedback/comments from others regarding the Panasonic PTAE300. I have read others comments on the 100 and it's associated problems. I even managed to get a "demo" of a 100 at a panasonic dealer shop in Guildford at the weekend. I use the term "demo" very loosely as it was in a very small room onto a beige wall (no screen and with picture hooks still in the wall !) and i was not allowed to choose the demo disc either. I don't think the PJ had even been set up correctly !! the reason i was looking at the 100 is because i have been unable to find anyone within a 150 mile radius who has a 300 on demo. I've tried Panasonic themselves, and they were extremely unhelpful. All i get from dealers is "oh mate their going like hot cakes". I am not prepeared to just hand over £1500 for something i've never seen !! Has anyone actually managed to see one of these machines ? are they as good as the hi fi press makes them out to be....or is it all just hype. I did manage to get an Infocus X1 on demo at home for a week (very nice people), and was very impressed with it's clarity and contrast. I have been told that this will accept a progressive scan signal via the VGA skt ! is this true? Sorry to have waffled on, but after nearly 5 weeks of trying to get a demo, I'm starting to wish I'd never bothered !
