    I could really do with a demo of one of these especially now they are only £799, any offers I'm in the Manchester area. I have a few questions. How bright is it in economy mode ie. could I use it in this mode with some ambient light? How noisy (this one I probably need to ear) is it? Would I notice screen door effect when only sitting about 7-8ft away from a 6.5ft wide screen? How does the AE100 compare to the Sanyo Z1?

    Hope you can answer some of these questions and maybe even offer me a demo;)

    Go to Sound & Vision at Farnworth, they will happily give you a full demo and discuss your requirements and answer your questions. For this kind of service they do take some beating!

    I currently have a 42" Toshiba RPTV but am now thinking about a AE100 for £799 but what i'd like to know is how does the picture quality compare to that of a RPTV? At the moment i am more than happy with the Toshiba but would like to go bigger and if the picture quality is as good on the AE100 then i just might buy one.

    i have the ptae 100 and i am getting a 8 ft widescreen image from it and the picture quality i would say is better than most rp tvs i have seen. The good thing is that the image is looks exxcellent no matter a what angle you sit where as most rp tvs if you sit off centre you loss the image clarity. Also i dont have to worry about burn in due to logos from sky.

    how good is pq when watching sky?

    do you need any other equipment to boost pq?

    can you watch it in a room that is also used as a living room i.e ambient light?

    sorry for all the questions but i am looking to buy one of these and if the pq is not up to scratch on sky which shall make up 90% of viewing my wife shall do a bobbit on me no doubt:eek:

    regards

    Tom Barr.

    i just got sky digital in last week and i feed it to my svhs video recorder and take a feed from that to my ptae and I am happy with the image i am getting, its not like dvd quality but i have went from analogue cable to sky digital so the picture on sky is a vast improvement to me, most of my viewing is sky tv and I am very happy with the picture qualty. I know the picture could be improved if i got a rgb to component convertor but i cant justify the expense at the moment.

    I have it set up in my bedroom and to get the best pq the room needs to be pretty dark iI have a set of blackout curtains which i use so I can watch during the day.

    Se my sig for some pics

    Well now I am getting very tempted. £799 is an excellent price for a projector - I would only require it for occasional use (the odd movie, footie match and the Eurovision Song Contest.) Had previously been looking at the Mitsubishi SL2 and the Infocus X1 - any thoughts how these compare to the panny?

    Also, is 700 lum really enough? Saw a sony in Comet the other day and was not impressed at all with the dark scenes, although this was just in a standard, brightly lit showroom.

    Also, this company does not seem to offer a pixel check prior to despatch (I live too far away to check one out in person.) How big an issue should this be?

    Thanks for any advice and sorry for any naivety - I am a new newbie and this is my first post, so go easy on me! :blush:
