Hi,


I have a choice of purchasing one of the following projectors, and I need some advice as to which would be the right choice for me.

Also, what do you base your opinion on?


Sony 1292 with 1500 hours.

NEC XG85 with 1350 hours.


The NEC is going to be auctioned tomorrow so I don't have a lot of time.

Any information at all would be most appreciated.


Thanks. Have a safe and happy easter.

Cheers,

Steve.

Personally, tube condition being equal, I'd take the XG every time. Brighter, quieter, and newer technology. The 1292 is 9" but the XG does not suffer in the comparison IMHO. Others will surely have different opinions.

Touch call. The 1292 being 9" LC, I would give that one my vote.


That is, IF you can build a hushbox and/or do some serious fan modding.

A 9" LC'ed unit is mighty tempting...I think I'd have to go that way, just because of the LC'ing. If both were either LC'ed or non, then the XG would get my vote.
