Anyone want to comment on their choice of projector in this price range?
I can see the Mitsubishi HC 7000 fits, as does the Panasonic PT-A4000 (both on Rapallo's site which seems the most comprehensive site in NZ), and they both get positive reviews.
I slightly prefer the Mitsi, but am a little concerned that it first came out a couple of years ago and may be about to be replaced.
Also I have seen some adverse comment about the lower light level of the bulb, because my projector room is also my lounge, sothe walls are not light absorbing black but cream. (At least I have blackout blinds, poor street lighting and generally only watch after dark!)
Then there is also the Optoma HD20 which is a bit cheaper at $3200
Your thoughts, oh geeks?
