Hi everybody, just read through this entire thread and read every review I can find. I think I've made the decision to pull the trigger on the AR100U.
Going to upgrade my AX200U. It's 4.5 years old and has been exhibiting problems for quite some time now. Flickering, flashing, burnt, and dust globs all the way down the left side when anything red is shown (Netflix loading screen is a mess).... and lamp is at 2300 hours with it in high dynamic mode for most the time.
I have it shelf mounted. Throwing from 12.5' to a 120" matte white 1.1 gain screen. Living room set up with a decent amount of ambient light. I don't usually like to watch things in complete darkness. I use the projector for 70% movies/shows on BluRay, or Netflix/Hulu through a PS3, and 30% for gaming on PS3/XBox.
I believe this is the projector for me....correct?
Where is the best place to purchase? I'm not the patient type and hoping to purchase sometime next week. Just looking for the best prices along with a good extended warranty (protection plan). Does B&H still include one lamp replacement with their protection plan on projectors?
