Thanks, Lorjam.

Guys, this is a serious price drop which will spark competitors in rethinking their pricing on some of the new models that came out.


Could we see prices dropping on other units by year end?


This will be very interesting to see what happens.


I dont own a PJ, but now I have these three on my list:


1) Sony VPL - HW 15

2) Mitsubishi HC3800

3) Panasonic AE4000


I hope to see all three of these in the future.

I think the Epson is brighter so maybe in a room with light it is the better choice.


It looks like the Panny will thoroughly trounce the Epson in a light controlled theater though.

100,000 to 1 contrast, frame interpolation, lens memory, lens shift for under 2 large? Yeah, the game has changed...



The AE3000 was an excellent projector, this looks better in every way.

I'd given up my dreams of a CIH setup due to the associated costs... now its back on the table. Its between this and the Mitsubishi HC3800 for me.


This PJ is a game-changer for sure.

MSRP is $2499.00 according to the press release, but Panasonic projectors have a history of a street price well under MSRP immediately upon introduction. That's in contrast to Epson projectors, where MSRP really seems to mean MSRP, except for announced rebates.


Evan's review doesn't say that the MSRP will be $1999, only that that the street price will be. Presumably he means MSRP of $2499 but MAP of $1999?

Notice PC review shows street price, which would be the retail price of $1999. This makes sense since the MSRP itself will reflect the $2499.


Thus MSRP OR LIST = $2499

Sales Price/Retail Price = $1999, so maybe this thread header should be changed. This is how I understand it. Still fantastic price and I hope other competitors will drop prices so I can have more options

I agree and saw they mentioned street on the review. To the left of that review it shows MSRP $2,499, my post was in regards to the title of the thread so I just wanted to clarify. I'm loving 1,999.00 for this projector though.

Yep. I imagine that Epson's "undetermined MSRP but below $3000" for the 8500UB just dropped a bit.
