I have been reviewing materials for FP's for some time, and from member reviews feel the HT 1000 would be a good choice. Does anyone know where I could demo one in the Houston area? NEC gave me the name of a commercial dealer, but they don't have an Ht !000. Thanks for any help.

NEC has a in home demo for 3 days.

But, you have to pay for some shipping, which amount to about ~$50.

I think it not a bad deal.

Umm, I just called NEC and looked like an idiot trying to get a demo. They said they have no NEC demo program for this projector. Any demos would have to be arranged from a reseller on their terms.

Thanks to6cess and Tim for your replies. It seems strange that a PJ as popular as the HT 1000 is so hard to demo. I'm willing to drive as far as Austin or San Antonio to see one in action with a 92 or 100" screen in a room with various degrees of light control.


Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

i would suggest finding a dealer with a good return policy.

the one i used allowed no more than 4 hrs on the bulb, and i had to pay 2 day return shipping, and had to have it back in 7 days.

the shipping amounted to about $70, iirc.


i did this back in July.

because of cedia, i sent it back, even though i was pretty sure it was the pj i would eventually end up with.


be careful though, because some place will ding you a re-stocking fee if you go over a certain amount of hours on the bulb.

Ckolchak.Thanks. This is my first FP so I don't have a screen set up. My proposed roon also does not have a large enough wall to project on. My plan is to install a fixed screen in front of a room sized curtain (about 15 ft wide)

AlrighthThen,


Thanks for the info. If nothing comes up in the next few days I'll get back to you. Would like to see an HT -1000 before the rebate expires.


Are there any AVS Members in the Houston area with a unit installed that would be interested in letting me have a look? I would be happy to bring along some of your favorite beverage.
