"Affordable" 1080p projectors, anbody taken a look?

(1/2) > >>

Frank in JC:
Has anybody seen one of the current crop of high-definition LCD projectors with their own eyes?   Based solely on reviews, the Panasonic PT-AE2000U seems to edge out competing units. 

I used to run a 2500 lumen Sanyo XP21n, but it's about 7 years old and needs an overhaul.  Instead of putting money into it, I think it might be time to move on.  The 1080p units out there have got me thinking about a new machine, but their relatively low lumen output makes me cautious.  The brightness of the Sanyo spoiled me, but I'm willing trade that for resolution, smoother image, and well... just a better overall picture.

Any firsthand impressions?  Thanks.

This is a good site for projector reviews:

I remember the epson 1080p model getting a good review, and I think Optoma just came out with a low priced 1080p model, the HD80. Both are under 3K.

The AE2000 is very nice looking.  The dust blob issue has me scared.

I just purchased the Panasonic PT-AE2000U. What exactly is the "dust blob issue?" ???

i'm currently looking at the epson 8100.  Price is about 1200
