I'm looking at getting a new projector. I got a goos price on an 9700. But is really worth the difference over the 8700?


I know the 9700 is more configurable, but I just don't see the real difference.


Oh, there is a 3yr warranty with the 970 over the 2yr on the 8700.


any thoughts would be great.


thanks

9700 Comes with a Flush Mount, Cable Cover and Spare lamp in the package.

Settings for Calibration are better

I prefer the colour modes on the 9700 my self...

and as you said you get an extra yr warrenty

and a Warrenty Express Tech Support Card...

A special Tech Support service for elite 9700ub owners...


I will say this there was a price drop on the 9700 this yr vs the 9500 from last year

also THX Mode is Editable...

Last yr model was locked

I thought about the same thing. For me, im a newbie, so if anything goes wrong with the 8700 epson will replace it. But...what about calibrations on the new unit? With the 9700 they will come out and recalibrate the unit every time you have problems. Thats worth it to me because i have no idea how to do alot of it and i want to just enjoy my projector not have to learn every single detail trying to perfect it.

Well i just went and saw a 9700 in person. Very nice, and a great picture. This place didn't budge on the $3200. price. I have another place that is giving a hue discount on this unit.


First, should I not be talking price here?


But, the projector is great. I'll be placing this about 14ft away from the screen. Hope this will work. I'll have to check the throw distance.

Other than the feature differences (black vs. white, extra 1 year warranty, mount, etc...), there is NO difference in picture...don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Can AVS sell the 9700UB?
