for those of you who have upgraded from "last" generations budget projectors (i.e. Z1, AE300, HS10) was it worth the jump to move to the Z2, AE500, HS20 or better etc. I have been a Z1 owner for a year now and so far quite happy but am always thinking in the back of my mind to upgrade.


would like to hear what people are buying in the "new" generation budget machines these days and how they made their choice.

I may be looking to upgrade from my current Z1, not as much for picture quality concerns, but other reasons such as throw distances, and input connections. If you are "only" looking for a better picture quality, I don't know if the improvement would justify the additional cost.

I'm seeing tweaks to existing technologies but nothing that would warrant me to sell my projector and buy something with small improvements. There are technologies like three chip DLP projectors and Sony's SXRD projector that can be had right now for $15,000 to $25,000.

My understanding of this is that Sony or other manufactures are interested in the mass market so you'll see these type of projectors at affordable prices in a year or two.

My advise is enjoy what you've got and avoid the hype.

what pj did you upgrade to and what were the factors in your decision. if memory serves me correct you bought a z1 and previously were more of a plasma guy.
