Just as I was all set to buy the Sharp 9000, a dealer told me that Sony was coming out with a DLP projector, due out in December.

Is this true? If so, has anyone here seen it ? Does it use the same HD DLP chip that Sharp does? Should I wait for the Sony, or go for the Sharp?

Thanks for the info.

Do you have any additional information on manufacturer's given contrast ratio, color wheel type, estimated US/EU release date and input signal compatibility?

I understand that this unit does NOT have an optical zoom in it?

Halcy: you can link to SONY official website: http://www.sony.co.jp/sd/CorporateCr...00110/01-1029/

The JAPAN release date of VPD-MX10 is 20th, Nov, 01. Further informations about contrast ratio, color wheel type is not available, but manual 1.2 time zoom lens is sure.

I also saw Sony's DLP RPTV at CES last year...they said it would be out about now....but haven't seen it or heard anything about it. It looked "mahvelous". I wonder whatever happened to that?
