I was last a regular visitor here and tracking the market of the upto £1500 projectors several months ago. At the time the Panasonic AE500 was about the burst onto the scene on the back of its very succesful predecesors. I now see the spec for the AE900 published and was wondering; Within its price range, is the Panasonic still a/the firm favourite especially with the AE900 in the wings or is there another pretender to the crown. I'm almost done on a HC project (started Feb 2002!) and will be ready to purchase hardware soon. I see from the poll that the AE series are neck & neck with the Z2. Are Panasonic losing the market share to the Z2?
