I had set my Projector Budget to around $3000.00 Because I was going to update my Pioneer BDP-51FD to a BDP-09FD and Was going to purchase some new theater chairs..


But I'm thinking maybe the best thing to do is put all the money towards a better projector..


My HT is 12' x 15' , with 8' ceilings. Dark gray walls and black ceiling and black screen wall... My screen is a 1.3 gain bright white 16.9 83" x 47".


Im looking at a New Pioneer Pro-FPJ1 and a JVC DLA-HD550..


Right now I've been testing out a optoma HD20 to see if i was affected by the RBE... next I was going to try out a Panny PT-ae4000 .. trying to find some guidence


Thanks

The Panasonic AE4000 is a top projector for the price to pay getting top reviews all around 100% consider the AE4000, I do not know too much about JVC but they will be better over the AE4000 because they are Lcos vs LCD I have always loved Locs stuff truly amazing stuff if you have the Money get the better projector, also the 09 Pioneer will make your Blu-ray shine over almost any player on the market today.


I would get the AE4000 and then buy the Pioneer 09 you will love it.

The Epson 8500ub seems to be favoured a bit more than the Panasonic. Jason (AVS) has said how impressed he is with it and Art from projectorreviews seems to think its sharper.


A $3000 DLP is a bit of hard call at the moment, you could either go with a newer 0.65" DMD model like the Benq W6000 or try to find a second hand 0.95" DMD model. The more I read, it seems people are preferring the 0.95" DMD models

Also chiming in, since 3-4 is about the price range I was shopping in. Was considering the Mitsu HC7000 until I started looking into what another $1000 could bring. Anyone seen JVC RS10s in stock anywhere?

Goingpoor,

I may piss some people off here but I wouldn't touch anything Optoma with a 10 foot pole.

Why bother when they're are so many other great projectors out there that don't have Optoma's sh!tty past.

I have a JVC and have seen the Panny side-by-side with the latest JVC and it is no contest. I'm not that picky but the difference was pretty big.

I would contact AVS and see what their prices are on the refurbed JVCs.

You know you'll get great after purchase support from them which is a big deal imo.

I assume the Pioneer you're talking about is Blu-ray player?

Why not get the Oppo and put those bucks into the projector?

I'm thinking the price difference is about $1k.

Oppo is the reference player for a lot of people who can afford anything.

You'll see a hell of lot more difference by spending at least some of the difference on a PJ than $1500 on a player that's not as good as $500 player.
