    Hello,

    I am completely new to home cinema projectors. Over the last few days, I have seen the Sharp XV7000E and the Sanyo PLV 30E projectors.

    Which do you think is the better machine? I did like the Sharp. However, it received a somewhat mixed review in "Home Cinema Choice"; something about 27 dead pixels, whatever that means.

    I also understand that Sharp has a XV9000E model available too. Does anyone know if this model is vastly superior to the 7000E, and what is the difference in price?

    Regards,

    AKS

    Go for the Sanyo (got best buy in HCC). People do go along with the HCC reviews. I'm wondering if people would have kept the Panny 100e if HCC slated it. A while ago HCC slated the Sony1070 cause it didnt rate too well with their ears. Then people decieded to sell their 1070!. I want Pany owners to be honest here!

    Hello,

    That's very interesting. When I saw them, I actually preferred the Sharp.

    Having said that, I did not see them in the same place or with the same film. I saw the Sharp with Disney's "Dinosaur" and was impressed with the sharpness of the picture. I saw the Sanyo in another place, and watched digital output from satellite TV. In the latter case, I thought the Sanyo was rather fuzzy.

    Of course, it could be argued that the Sharp would have been too, if I had seen the same material.

    Another thing. From what I can see, the Sharp XVZ7000E is in the £4500 price range whilst the Sanyo is in the £2500 or so. Hence, the "Best Buy" would surely refer to that price range?

    Also, how seriously should I take that review (which is on this website, by the way) about the dead pixels? From what you seemed to imply, the answer might be "not very"?
