I 100% understand that forum sponsors should get preference. I bought my Panny from Visual Apex way back.
Five years and three bulbs later, it's showing more blue dots than stars in the sky, so it's time for a new one.
I just put the Plus Piano (Ah! the good ole days) back in action until I decide on a new projector or bite the bullet and get a 55+" LCD or plasma...that's why I'm back.
Since the sticky only mentioned Costco, I thought maybe I missed out on some good gossip like they were selling stuff out the back door cheap or that they were really aliens in disguise...
Okkie Dokey...Costco talk = No... No
I have been spoiled with an 80" diag screen for 5 years now in a small room, and with large screen LCD's and Plasmas so cheap now, my options are so many.
When I go to someone's house and see their 42" LCD, I can't imagine watching TV or a movie on something so small.
So, I must still be leaning to another projector. The search will see.
Because my theater room is so small, I hope I can get away with staying in the $1500-$2000 range for 1080P.
I'll do my homework, but I will be asking for those dreaded which one questions that everyone loves to see...
