Finally decided to go for the entry level Z2 and wait until DLP technology and price settles. Got a great price from Technosound, Dunstable, for £1699 with an 8ft 16:9 Owl Electric screen. Anyway any experienced Z2 owners out there?? I am looking for the optimum picture settings with a component out?? i.e. what settings for the sharpness, brightness, contrast, gamma etc...??? Thanks to all those who replied to earlier queries.
