I live in the Rocky Mountains and have almost no opportunity to see demos of any projector. A lot of postings have wisely recommended to look before you buy, but that is easier said than done. I will be near New York City next week and am hoping to take advantage of the major population center to get a look at some of the projectors I have read about.

Can anyone recommend retailers in New York where I can see some projectors and have a fighting chance of getting a fair price? I am primarily interested in the Sanyo PLC-XP21N and the NEC LT150.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Sorry to say that in NYC it's almost all Runco, with the occasional Sony VW10HT and Sharp thrown in at the A/V retailers. If you head for the surrounding New York, New Jersey and Connecticut suburbs, you might be able to add a Seleco or a Dwin to the list, but that's about it.

If you try the resellers of business presentation projector, you may have some luck, but be prepared for sub-optimal demos (for home theater) and lots of hard work chasing reps and setting up appointments.

B&H Photo in Manhattan (33rd and Ninth Avenue) has a number of Sanyo and Sony projectors amongst others on display. You can call them at 800-947-1186 to confirm what is on display before making your trip over their.

The 1800 number is not reachable from the NYC area, but they do have a local number posted on their web site,
and they seem to have the PLC-XP21N in stock.
