    Hello, everyone. :)

    I'm thinking of buying a Sony 10HT LCD projector for my HT.

    Since I'm a college student, I do not have that big amount of cash or credit. :(
    (10HT costs over 3000 GBP, doesn't it?)

    So......

    Does anyone know any on-line dealer(eg. http://www.hifibitz.net ) who offers sort of like "installment payment" ?

    In this way I can pay monthly. :)

    Any info, comments would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks! :)

    Most decent HiFi shops should do a reasonable credit installment plan.

    However you may be better off looking at a bank loan, they can sometimes work out cheaper than store credit.

    Watch out for interest free credit, I got caught out when buying a TV a few years back, they give you 6 months interest free usually, but the credit agreement is for a longer period and if you carry on paying installments they charge you **** loads of interest.

    Hope this helps

    you could also consider second-hand.

    There was a VPL10HT on e-bay (UK) which sold last night for £3100 (including spare bulb costing £450).

    Not perhaps a great bargain - but a reasonable saving.

    Thanks for reply Slingshot.

    But I believe the banks do not loan money to students :(

    Excellent Choice. I hope you can get one you can afford. With luck, there may be a few second hand ones popping up as people upgrade to the VW11 or Sharp 60.

    It's also definitely worth investing an additional £10 or so in a CC20R filter. Full details of what to do with it are on the forum at www.thebigpicturedvd.com

    All very well if you want to use it with a Computer.

    Me, I use a standalone DVD player with progressive scan via component. It makes an excellent combination.

    Nowdays there are several very good home cinema projectors around, some at much less than £3k. If money is tight you may find other solutions that are as enjoyable but cost MUCH less.

    Try and get a demo of a NEC vt540.
    You can get one of these for about 2k and i.m.h.o.it has the beating of the Sony 10ht via computer input!!
