    Dear All,

    Looking in the classifieds, there are some bargains on updated projectors, hoiwever, the big question is which one to go for? Is the panny AE500 better than a Sony HS20 (bearing in mind that a HS20 on the classifieds will cost approx £150 more).

    Let me have your opinions guys!!!! :thumbsup:

    Cheers

    Buy my NEC HT1000 as advertised on here. Will blow all of the listed models into the dust.

    See the hardware ads.

    Cap :)

    Hi Cap,

    I would love to buy your HT1000, however, unless you would accept around £750 for it, it sin't going to happen!

    Thanks for the reply though :smashin:

    Cheers

    Owning neither but having seen both I think the HS20 has the edge on performance.

    Edit: To say that both of the above were fed via similar HTPC's, results may vary from inferior sources, both will be a huge improvement on an ae100, a friend went from an ae100 to ae500 last week, its a huge jump in performance and fits in the same position in your room, on the same mount, its performance is close to a HS10, the HS20 is a further step up but will likly require different mounting etc.
