Hi guys, A few of you asked me to post when my projector arrived, hence this post. The PLV-Z2 arrived today in perfect condition, and I was only charged an extra AU$180 in customs and import duties. That brings the total price of the projector to AU$2,450 - not bad considering these babies go for anywhere between AU$4,000 and AU$5,000 over here - if you can find one. Changing the menu from Japanese to English was a total breeze, taking all of around 20 seconds. I used a power plug adaptor to make the Japanese plug fit our Australian power points (most modern projectors have auto adjusting transformers, so you don't need to use a step down transformer). I also purchased a D4 to component cable at the time I ordered the projector - it works perfectly. I'm very happy with the projector so far - it's my first projector so I'm probably not as demanding as some users, but I can't see any dead pixels or dust blobs. There is no screendoor effect from the range I'm sitting, which is around 3.5 metres, unlike some of the cheaper projectors I've loaned from work, such as the Epson S1. However, one thing I have noticed is a kind of artifacting effect when playing DVDs. It's the same thing you see on computers when playing very compressed movies - could this be because I'm playing my DVDs from an Xbox? It's not so bad that I'm not loving watching movies, but I'd like to know if there's a way to stop it. Would building a dedicated HTPC solve this problem, or is this just a limitation of the compression inherent to DVDs? A HDTV set top (or PCI card if I build a HTPC) box is next on the list, and I can't wait to see how nice that will look. Anyways, I'm very happy with my purchase. I'm just about to sit down with the other half, 3 new release DVDs and a bag of popcorn. Life is good... very good indeed!
