First, things first... I'm only 12 hours new to AVS Forums and I'm already addicted.... http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif


And now, on to the post...


I've searched up and down for any reference to the new projectors that Sanyo's announced; the PLC-XP45 and PLC-XP40. I was all set to get the XP30 until I ran across the specs of these new projectors at Projector Central's projectors database. I'm dying to get more details on these boxes. (See links at end of this post)


Here's why I'm so excited:


- Bright, bright, bright. (3500 ANSI Lumens)


- DVI (can't wait to do some killer HTPC stuff.)


- Contrast: 800:1 (Full On/Off, not the best measurement, but relative)


- Quiet: 37.0 dB


- Lamp life: 2000 hours


- Shipping: ??????


I found the the MSRP is about 12,999 witch is the same as the XP30, so I'm hoping that the street price is also around $7,000.


So, does anyone have any news about these projects? Rumors or even wild speculation would be welcomed at this point... My window to buy opens next month, and I'm not one for waiting around hoping something better comes along... bleeding edge and all.


As promised above, here are the links:

I saw the XP45 at Infocomm. It looks nice, but still has screen door.

I just got my Quadscan Elite set up (and that is no easy task), but screendoor go bye-bye. Non-issue. Dead. Next?

My current idea of the best value:

Boxlight 38t

Panasonic RP91

RCA DTC-100

Da-Lite 100" 4:3 1.3gain

Studio Experience SE616's

and some other stuff.

I just set up my 38T (XP21N) and agree--screen door is no issue but remember that this one has MLA. And it is plenty bright enough.


See my thread, "Gees, now I know. . .

Anyone know if the new XP45 has MLA in it? My wife really like the XP45 at Infocomm show. And we want to project it on a 159" screen. My room size is 16 x 28. Thanks.
