    Dino, glad to see some one can make their mind up and go for it! That price is excellent and I presume it includes VAT. What made you go for the sony against the sanyo? If it was because of the 16:9 format, how come you didn't wait to have a look at the new widescreen format. Being in the position of wanting a projector but not Knowing what to get at the moment I would be interested to hear your view!

    Regards

    Dino,

    Excellent choice [​IMG] Go to thebigpicturedvd forum where there is an excellent FAQ on how to set up the Sony with the help of the Avia test disc. It's welll worth the effort - I improved the (already impresssive) picture from mine after a couple of hours tweaking the settings.

    Jus,
    My Sony has a 9 foot screen and the pixels are only just visible from about 5ft away if you look VERY hard. If there is blockiness then its not the Sony thats doing it. It may be that the movie(?) you saw wasn't particularly well coded on the DVD. Try something like R1 Fifth Element and then see what the Sony can really do!

    The Sony has a built-in doubler so you don't need one.

    I've decided I'm going to get a projector for my loft.

    About a month or so ago I went to a shop, test drove and bought some speakers. They had a 5ft screen setup with a Sony vw10ht. The pictures were clear and bright but the thing that struck me right away was the blockyness. You could make out every pixel. Was it because they didn't have a line doubler or is it just a trait of having a bigger screen ?

    Jus, How come you made your mind up that quick!!!!!

    Have you looked at the sanyo that is about £1500 at least cheaper than the Sony and by all accounts knocks it into a cocked hat!
    Check out the thread from a couple of weeks ago, I think it started with "all those seeing gordon" and got about 25 plus responses! Definitely worth a read if you have money to spend.

    regards

    I wrote off the Sanyo because I don't like the name, Sanyo.

    LOL, thats funny!!
    The Sanyo is a great projector, I indeed own one. I cant however compare with the Sony as I haven't seen it in action (was out of my price range).

    Sony: Brighter, higher resolution, 16:9 panel, very quiet.

    Sanyo: Better contrast, more shadow detail, at least £1500 cheaper.

    Both excellent projectors in their own right. Get a dem on both before spending your hard earned.

    Regards

    Seen Both Sanyo + Sony

    Own Tosh MT1

    Would buy Sanyo if still looking for new projector!.

    The sanyo (for the money) is excellent. But i only had a short demo, so maybe the sony may is better with other films etc.

    Oh no. Choice.

    I wrote off the Sanyo because I don't like the name, Sanyo.

    I wrote off buying a second hand CRT because they will probably be a lot bigger.

    I'll probably go for a demo of a few projectors before I buy. The loft is being converted in May.
