It'll be interesting to see who pulls ahead once they're all put to the test. Right now there are just too many variables. The VW60 has to be sharper than the VW50, the UB1080 has to be cheap, and the Z2000 has to have good contrast. Oh and they all have to have vertical stretch and 1080/24p support.
I'd wait for the Epson TW2000, very promising preliminary info, but i can guarantee you that the build quality will not even come close to Sanyo. This is from a Sanyo Z3 as a first PJ guy, i loved it, now got the HC5000.
50,000:1 dynamic contrast on the Epson, LCD growing in leaps and bounds, so does devaluation (:
In reference to the Z2000 one of the "People" told me today it will be in stock around the 20th
I am too chicken to be a beta tester so will let a few vets bite the bullet and comment first.
