L200U is LCD and has WVGA resolution X1 is SVGA and DLP. Both of them are available for almost same price (X1 is around $200 cheaper because of rebate)


why someone would buy X1 instead of L200U?

(L300U costs around $450 more than L200U and it is better product than L200U - no question about it, but ) I want to know if anyone has compared X1 to L200U ? I'm trying to find out what is so great about X1 that make L200U almost unknown.


Same goes with Z1. Now Z1 looks exactly same as L200U (WVGA) and priced almost exactly the same. Why z1 is so popular.


It's just presence of L300U or what?


If it helps to answer above question -

I'm planning to have 106 inch diagonal 16:9 screen and sit 16ft from the screen (almost 1.8X). The room is basement - so completely light controlled.


Last question - was AE100 better than L200U?


Thanks.

To quote the Specs on current *hot* projectors thread...

Panasonic A200

LCD, 858x480

700 Lumens, 700:1

5000 Hours, 28dB

Throw Ratio: Approx. 1.39-1.66:1

Sanyo LP-Z1 / PLV-Z1

LCD, 960x540

700 Lumens, 800:1

3000 Hours, 28dB (Depending on room temps, fan speed may increase)

Throw Ratio: 1.35 - 1.6:1


Slightly more brightness, and slightly higher resolution for the Z1. The Z1's resolution is also 1/4 1080i HDTV (1/2 in each dimension) for easy scaling of HDTV.


I have a Z1 (actually a Studio Experience 1HD) and am happy, but I have never seen the A200.
