There are less than 700 hours on my XG 1352 so I'm in no rush. I believe the XG is better than the HT1000 (from what I've read and from demos of the Infocus 7200) from a strictly performance standpoint. In my case other factors such as my 7 year old wanting to use the theater constantly are affecting my deciesions.
I'm not married to any PJ. Not an XG, Not a Barco , not DLP, LCD etc but would like to give the new crop of DLP a try. If I can do so w/o losing my shirt on the XG then it is a done deal. I've only made one sale on e-bay and I need to get a couple more smaller sales under my belt before I sell the XG. (unless someone makes me a decent offer from elsewhere)
Then I'll switch to the HT1000 or equiv and give it a try. If I don't like it I'll go back. Trust me on that. Unfortunately I do not have the funds to just by an HT1000 and sell whichever I do not want to keep so I have to do it the hard way.
You seem a little nervous that I may switch to DLP on the basis of your posts.
To be honest your switch to DLP has affected my decieson since you have seen so many CRTs and digitals and the fact that the 3600 came down so fast speaks volumes to me. I have to get my info from somewhere but here in the boonies it's hard to get demos. For gods sake many people here (in Winnipeg) still swear by and buy new low price LCD and threaten me if I mention CRT. Your observations re the HT1000 have been very helpful but are only 1 of the factors in my choice. Whatever happens. I won't hold you responsible. You have given your account of the machines and I thank you for that.
