Butch,


I swear I'm not purposely following your messages...I just finished replying to you in the Screen section.


I think most people recommend the double-boxing. If you do not, the projector is shipped in the box from the manufacturer with the colorful advertisement of its nature and I think you would be telling customs "Come and get me!." I opted for insurance due to the long trip and its fragile nature. I didn't go with DHL though, since I'm perfectly happy getting it USPS and 2 nights transit was fine by me.

I just received my AE100 yesterday via USPS/EMS and it only had a thin bubble-wrap layer around the box. Condition was perfect...it looked like it had never left the factory. Kudos to the Postal Service for such care in handling.

The double box in my opinion was useless for protection. I also felt cheated when i got my ae100 from price japan. But my dad who is a Customs broker pointed out that this probably saved me from paying duties on the PJ. If Customs saw a Panny box, they might have stoped the shipment. So IMHO I think it was worth the extra $20.

Has anybody actually had their shipment checked if not double boxing? I was planning on ordering mine next week and didnt know about teh double boxing option. I will probably go this route but was curious if anybody that had it single boxed and has problems or had no problems.

go the double box. Even with thin bubble wrap it will help to elliminate the vibration damage that could occur. In my opinion I belive that shipping damage to electrical components doesn't allways appear the minute you turn the unit on.

$20 clams is nothing.

I have 103hrs on mine and still working fine.
