keep your fingers crossed. As much as I'd love a 1080p projector in an affordable price range, I don't see it happening within the next couple years.
Why ?, the MSRP of the Pana AE1000 is $3499. Should I remind you that the MSRP of the AE900 that was released just 12 months ago, is $3200 ?.
Sanyo is going to release their 1080 version of the Z5 somewhere in 2007, and then prices will probably take a dive, like every year.
It is very logical to assume that starting from about spetember of 2007, when the second generation of 1080 pjs will hit the market, the first generation of 1080 pjs could be bought for around $2000.
