Yeah, I agree, it's weird. But the company representative insisted it was a TW110 and that he could no longer get the TW100.
I basically gave him the goahead to get one. Worst case scenario, I send the darn thing back. Best case scenario, I get something even better than the TW100.
I agree though that its very odd that Epson would create a new version so quickly, so something strange is going on. The retailer didn't even try to hike the price up or anything, though, rather the opposite; told me that the price was higher but that they'd sell it to me at the same rate as the older model.
Should be interesting.
I guess that it is Cyberphoto you are buying from... I gave them a call today when I noticed that the TW100 was missing from their pricelist!
They told me that the TW100 was obsolete and that it couldnâ€™t be ordered anymore! I told them that it was a new model and that it just couldnâ€™t be obsolete yet! He then tried to get in contact with who ever is responsible for their projector products, but he had already left for the day. He then talked to someone else in the shop and then told me about the TW110!?!
I canâ€™t find any references to a TW110 at Epson or anywhere else. No press release, nothing. I havenâ€™t had time to call Epson Sweden yet but this sounds very strange to me...
Kimmo, did they say how much more they wanted for the â€œnewâ€ TW110? I always found the price they quoted for the â€œobsoleteâ€ TW100 to good to be true! Their prices are usually good but I always get suspicious when Swedish prices are on par with or even lower than the lowest I can find in the rest of Europe...
