geekiegeek: Thinking about getting a PT-AR100U through BHPhoto, its a hell of a lot cheaper the buying here even with shipping. I guess the only things to worry about are power - says 100-240v in the specs so should be fine and warranty, cant seem to find any info on whether Panasonic warranty is international or not.


Panasonic projector warranties are not international, Panasonic nz used to offer zero assistance with grey imports, not sure if that is still the case or not now though.

flynkiwi: I think my budget is going to be about 1500, but because this will be a multipurpose room with it being a kids playroom as well. I am looking at either inwall speakers or something I can attach to walls out of reach of little hands. I know these won't give me the best sound but it's one of those compromises that you have to make.

At the moment I am thinking of going in this direction. Orbaudio.com...people's choice plus a couple extras for 7.1

Speakers don't fit into any budget until a bit later in the year though so I will temporally use my panasonic HTIB



My father in law got these for Christmas. They sound fantastic from their size and are surprisingly heavy. Look beautiful in the hand.

Well worth the consideration and you can get wall plates for them too.

Well, just purchased an Epson 5010 at a stupidly low price with piss all hours on the lamp. Was on eBay at $1800 buy now or best offer. Thought I'd low ball him and offered $1600 not expecting him to accept. He did lol. Stoked.

Wow, great price! I am sure you will be pleased with that Kopkiwi. My projector and screen are now at kiwi shipping so waiting to see what boat it gets on. I am sure it will be a slow wait.....

Pulled the trigger on a new projector today, Panasonic PT-AE8000 3LCD 1080P 3D from RapalloAV. Paid $3700 which is what AVWorld has it on sale for. Went with Rapallo as I have had good dealings with them in the past.

Should be a nice upgrade from my current PT-AX200 720P model.

If anyone is after said perfect condition PT-AX200 with nearly new bulb (they cost $600+) I'm looking for $500 so PM me :-)
