I'm looking to upgrade my well worn Epson Home Cinema 720. As such, I have come across a Canadian retailer that sells the HD8600 with 2 years of warranty and the standard lens for <$1800.00. Given the original MSRP, this is an incredible price drop.
Like most people, I love a deal. However, if the quality of picture of this 3 year old machine is no longer "that great" in today's marketplace, I will look eslewhere. In other words, is this a killer deal that will knock my socks off (remember, my frame of reference is the HC720)?
