I would really like to buy this pj but I made very bad experiences with the ae700 and ae900.
Both machines had defective blue lcd panels after ~ 3000 hours (or 15 month) which was not covered by warrenty (1 year) and I had to replace both.
I`m a very heavy user and use them for almost everything (sdtv, gaming, dvds, hd-dvds, blu-rays.. etc).
Has this problem been solved or are they still using the old organic panels ??
..2 years warrenty would be perfect..
edit.: I really loved both panny`s because of the smoothscreen thing, which is perfect for me (very close viewing distance), but 15 month lifespan is poor.
