Epson pricing strategy worldwide has always been "strange" (bound by strict commercial agreement, IMHO), but this time....wow!
In europe epson has always sold projector way lower than in us (yes I know the differences between the european and us model, but they have always been very minor, to my eyes), and in europe prices (and models) were always tied and follower of the japan pricing scheme.
It was true with the tw500, it was true with the last year tw600, and it's true this year......but ONLY with the tw700
The Tw700 (Cinema 810) is already sold in europe LOWER than the japan advertised price, why the tw1000 should be sold for double the japan advertised price?
I still conserve some hope......but will take a serious look at japan REAL release date and pricing scheme; if anyone knows ....post it here please (respecting AVS rules, of course!)
