    Has anyone compared the performance of these two projectors? I've searched with no luck. I own the 900U, and am still impressed with the cinema quality, though it needs complete darkness to be appreciated. I know this projector is an older model, but it still gets current rave reviews and still sells new in many stores for $700 to $1100. The PT-AX200U Is a current model that has slightly higher brightness and contrast specs, but seems to be advertised more as a gamers best friend and secondly as a good HT projector.

    At a low price of $879 including shipping, is it worth the upgrade, or is it even much of an upgrade for cinema viewing? I just bought a new bulb ($230) for the 900U.

    Any discussion appreciated.

    Thanks, Bob, I'll check it out. Is the PT-L900 essentially the same as my PT-AE900U?

    I don't recall ever seeing a PT-L900U, but if there was one, it is the same as the PT-AE900U. Panasonic did have identical PT-L500U and PT-AE500U, but I think by the time the 900 model was out, it was only PT-AE900U.
