    hi, i am soon thinking of buying the z2, but i am finding it hard to demo one.
    i am wondering if i will be happy with the pq?
    what do you recommend would be an upgrade from the z2, i will be spending up to £2000 (max).
    i will be using pal prog scan, 10m component connection, and projecting from approx 11 foot away!

    any ideas or comments or experiences will be grateful!?



    :confused:

    :boring:

    Specwise the HS20 seems the natural choice.

    nexnix has a good demo room, but they are in sussex!

    the z2 is a great machine, the ae500 is a great machine, the hs20 is a great machine. if you are new to projectors, then any of the above will blow you away!!
