Are any of you ordering thru online vendors? Can you recommend any? I have found projectorpoint_dot_com to have the lowest price I could find, but I have no idea on their reputability or shipping charge. I would consider buying from a local vendor, but none of the vendors NEC told me were in Indianapolis replied to email. One was no longer in business, most others were business-to-business installation contractors, and the final one has a reputation for being a high-brow, esoteric store and is far more expensive than big-box stores.
This group's enthusiasm for the 50XR5 is contagious, but I have seen no professional published reviews yet. Thought briefly about getting the Visio for about 30% less than the prevailing plasma prices. It has two HDMI's, and is well-reviewed as best bang-for-the-buck. It didn't have screen saving options, nor did it have any extensive calibration, so I've held off.
Let me know about the internet vendors, as I'd love to get one on order quickly. What have lead times been like?
Thank you, this is my first post!
no price other than MSRP, please. Thanks
