I logged on tonight to post this link but I see I've been beaten to it. :-)
Excited to hear that Projector Central feels the the panels are inorganic.
I note that Art at Projectorreviews.com states that he confirmed with a source at Epson that the panels are organic but we don't know the quality of his source- is it someone in the know or just a typical PR person who may have the specs confused with the 8100 or just now know whatsoever?
Anyway, the evidence so far tends to indicate that, even if the panels are organic, they seem to behave like inorganic panels now and will hopefully last similarly.
I doubt that I'd ever keep a projector for more than 10K hours, but I would like to know that I could concievably sell it/give it away at that point with a clear conscious.
The 6100s focus issues being corrected are a mega-plus.
I think my mind is made up...
And to think I ALMOST ordered an Optoma HD20.
