Hi all, I am conisidering getting a projector and after reading through the forum a few times I am still non the wiser as to what to get. My situation is a little different to most. I want the projector to be sited above my bed about 80cm above my head. The brightest the room will ever be will be during the day with the curtains shut. I want to use it to project an image approx 2.4m away of a size somewhere arround 70 to 80 inches (allthough as small as 60inch would be acceptable). As it will be close I need it to be quiet. As I will only be about 80cm away from it I want it to be quiet. I am very suseptable to any flaws eg, screen door, rainbows. Budget is anywhere up to £2000 allthough I would preffere to keep this to £1300 to be honest. I have been looking at 3 models in particular (allthough not demo'd yet. Here are the Plus points over the others as far as I can tell:- Panasonic AE700:- Screen door minimiser.(Does the sharp have this?) Very adaptable lens that would allow me to try anywhere between 60 and 80 inches quiet happily. Brighter. Hi Res. Lamp seems £100 cheaper than the Sharp Sharp Z3:- Very quiet In a comparative review VB was less evident on this projector. Self cleaning easy user cleaning. Hi Res. side venting heat Infocus 4805:- DLP so no VB Onboard Farthingy line doubler (Does the Panny or Sharp have anything similar on board?) Question is which would be the best in my situation. Will the screen door minimiser of the Panasonic and excellent lense mean I can Have a bigger pic or will the VB drive me mad and the noise be too loud. Will the sharp be too big a screen and not allow me to change it allthough 23db is very quiet Will the rainbows of the 4805 drive me mad and the low res look naff unless I set it to a smallish 50 inch screen? (What speed colour wheel is there on this projector) Am I better going for the more expensive models like the Infocus 5700. (Really would be tight to get this) What about the new Sony with 6000:1 contrast ratio? (whats the contrast ratio of a crt? This will be just under £2000. If I have to spend it I have to but when I buy I want to get a spare lamp at the same time. I plan to watch 80% Sky and 20% DVD. My other idea is to get a 42 inch plasma but to be honest I really want the ability to watch Alfred Hitchcocks Rear Window on the large screen somtime Any advice would be welcome. Regards Robert.
