The Z3000 also does vertical stretch, but costs much more than the Z700
I think, that this is a very interesting projector, for those, who want to step into 1080p without spending lots of dollars.
I'm glad to hear that Sanyo finally implemented the vertical stretch mode für CIH, so we don't need an external scaler or player for diong this job
But i worried about the brightness and the organic panels of this projector. Will it have enough light power for a screen above 8 feet width?
