First of all, I want to thank Timh and all the others with their first-hand reports of their new baby. I'm also looking for an inexpensive projector. I know that in a few months there'll be more, and they'll be better and cheaper. But I'm tired of my 29" telly! That said, I must say I'm surprised at the positive feedback the PT-AE100 has got. There are a lot of LCD projectors which cost less than £2000, which is currently my price limit. For example, you can look here. With anamorphic DVDs, the Panasonic has just 5% more horizontal resolution than a typical SVGA projector (like the Philips Monroe). Is that really noticeable? With 4:3 material (and remember, there is a lot of that, from TV series to old movies), you get 20% less horizontal resolution than on SVGA projectors. So, why is the Panny any good?
