    I have a bit of a plan maybe sometime in the future, I do odd work for a local IT community centre where I have access to demo rooms and stuff.

    I might just from an enthusiast level set-up a projector show down. Not to sell them or anything (I point people towards the forum sponsors on here for that and outright model demos, also not to replace the much more sophisticated Shows performed by Gordon and others), but just to have an evening comparing them.

    Who would be prepared to travel and pay a small fee to cover the hire of the room?

    I don't know if I have the time and inclination at the moment, but maybe, cos a few local people have contacted me - this would be a reasonable idea.

    People bring along their projectors we set them up and measure CR and stuff?

    Anyone ...

    Mansfield, Notts

    Depends on when, you're about 2 hours drive away or so but it would be great to see some different projectors set up properly before I take the plunge and buy my first ;)

    I'd be up for that. I have an old crt pj at the moment and I am looking to buy an LCD pj before xmas. It would be great to see a selection of projectors on the same day in the same room with the same source. :smashin:

    I'd love to, but I don't think my Barclaycard could take the consequences...

    Sounds great, if i have bought another car before you hold the event, i will drive up with my Z3.5 and you can all have the pleasure of comparing the king of the last gen to the next gen - oh and the pleasure of meeting me too :hiya:
