I am getting close to starting my basement remodel and have been looking at projectors over the last 3-4 months. After a lot of research, I have decided on the PT-AR100U based on how it will be used (family room with windows, parties, football, kids, backyard movies) and feedback from this forum (thanks!). What I have noticed is that the price has been steadily increasing since March when it was $999 to now where it is priced at $1299. Anybody know what is driving the price increase and are there any expectations that it will drop back down? I would like to purchase the projector fairly soon.
