    Suppesedly the infocus 5700 can be had for 2700 pounds.. can anyone tell me a good website that has that price(or better) in the UK?

    And also where should I buy Da-Lite screens for the best price.. I was thinking about a 100-110" High Contrast Cinema Vision.

    I´ve heard that some screens(like Stewards) are too expensive in the UK, and are cheaper imported with duties from the US. But few are willing(understandably) to ship a large screen because of high risk of damage. So I´m hoping I can find a good dealer in the UK(for Da-Lite) and I can get a friend to buy it in the UK and have him ship it.

    I thought your post would have had a dealer snapping your hand off to take your money?

    Have you tried the Infocus website www.infocushome.com ?

    This has a european section and a 'find a retaler' section. They might be able to give you some useful advice. The sticking point is that the Screenplay series are not handled by the usual Infocus dealers so are a bit harder to get hold of.

    Regards,

    Look for posts by 'Venkman' on the DVD Players section posting re. the Samsung HD 935 . He has an SP5700 and might be able to help.

    I doubt you'll be able to find UK prices on the internet as I understand the screenplay range is not allowed to be advertised on the web.

    I got mine from Global Hifi Centre in Newcastle for £2740, I might have been able to get it cheaper, but was too excited and just ordered it! You can find them at www.globalhificentre.com, and they were very helpful. If you do use them, ask for Will and say Peter from HPRmedia told you about them.

    Thanks.

    I´ll try emailing them.. their site says almost 3kpunds, a bit much.

    Know of any Da-Lite screen dealers?
