I ordered an Infocus X1 from Andy@projectorshopper.com based on some recommendations I have read here. He seems very knowledgeable and has answered all my questions. I told him I needed the projector by Friday (yesterday) and as it turned out the Infocus X1 wasn't in stock, so he sent me this one (Matinee 1HD). I am not sure if it was a mistake on his part or he sent it because I told him I needed a projector. On his website the Matinee 1HD is also called the Sanyo PLV-Z1. First off, I would like to start by saying I have never seen either projector in action. The things I like about the Matinee 1HD are the component inputs and widescreen display. I am still waiting to receive the Infocus X1. In anticipation of the X1, I have already ordered the Infocus component to VESA adaptor (which will allow me to input a progressive signal since that is the type of DVD player I have). Eventually, I would like to create a HTPC to run whichever projector I decide to keep. The prices for the two are within $50 of each other. So my questions are: Looking at the specs of both projectors, will the Infocus be any better? People have said on the forum that the actual output of the Infocus X1 is around 700 lumens which is the specs for the Matinee 1HD Is the Matinee 1HD really a Sanyon PLV-Z1? Is it lower quality because it is rebadged? I will watch mostly widescreen DVDs on the projector-I like the Matinee 1HD because it allows a larger widescreen image than the Infocus X1 (this is my assumptioin-because of the widescreen display of the Matinee 1HD. Please help me decide.
