I've been reading lots and talking to many people about my first PJ and now it's time to choose. Demo's have been a nightmare. I have only managed to see a SIM 2 Domino and a Panny 200 and have resigned myself to picking a PJ without seeing it 'in action'. This is where you guys can help. I had two ways of thinking for this: 1. Buy a cheaper LCD PJ (say 1-1.5k) and maybe look to upgrade sooner if needed. 2. Buy a more expensive DLP PJ (1.5-3K) and keep longer (take me ages to pay for it anyway!) My narrowed down choices are as follows: 1. LCD: Z2, Panny 500 (although I wanted to buy before xmas so this one is probably no good) and lastly the Hitachi PJ-TX10 (Illumina). 2. DLP: Infocus screenplay 5700. At the moment I'm leaning towards the Infocus but it is the most expensive. The Z2 looks very interesting and the Hitachi looks like good value. I need some final help to push me over the cliff. I'd really appreciate your opinions I'd also like to say that this forum has been a godsend during this process and I've learn't a hell of a lot from the people posting here. best regards Doc.
