If any of you would like to give some insight into my indecision on which direction to take it would be very much appreciated - I have yet to view three FP units that I have in mind - assuming a local retailer sells them. They are: Sanyo Z2, Sony VPL HS20,& Panasonic PT 300U I know there are other contenders but I am just getting familiar with front projectors - and judging from what I have heard there is a very good chance I will go that route. Viewing room dimensions are 11 x 22 and distance from screen will be 8 - 13 ft. ( approx. ) looking at a screen size of around 100". I would like to finally leave my 27" Mitsubishi - the HF bug has bitten me!
