    Will you be buying over there or online? How well can you control the ambient light in your room during the daytime?

    Below are the some prices of the projectors sold in Australia in Australia dollars.My question is how good is the warrenty if i purchase online.I also need to consider the compatibility of the projector to the Australian standards.Can you tell me how it works.Is it safe to purchase online.

    The can contol the room ambient very well. At night time i have downlights controlled with dimmer switches.I can turn off the lights.Day time i can control by shutting the glass windows i have one corner window and one large sliding windows i can control light by having dark curtains and timber lights.

    Most of the time we watch movies late in the evening.

    Prices of the projetors in Australian Dollars:

    Plus-PLU3810Z-$8,000
    SONY-VPL-VW11HT-$14,000
    Dream Vision Starlight DL500 -$13,000
    BenQ HT480W $9999

    I am not familiar with the Plus PLU1380Z or the BenQ HT480W. I have the Sony VPL-VW11HT which actually is not a DLP projector but an LCD one with a WXGA resolution of 1366x768. The Sony has the Dreamvision DLP beat on both resolution and brightness and if you watch any amount of widescreen material then the VW11HT is more for you.
    Just to throw some numbers at you.... If you were to watch a movie like Toy Story 2 which has a 1.78:1 aspect ratio you would have a framesize of 1366x768 on the Sony unit and 800x449 on the Dreamvision unit with the rest of the frame devoted to the black bars.
    Also check out these rojectors to see if they are available and in your pricerange...
    Boxlight Home Cinema 13HD
    Boxlight Home Cinema 20HD
    Sanyo PLV-60HT
    Sanyo PLV-70
    SharpVision XV-Z9000U
    Sony VPL-VW12HT
    Sony VPL-HS10 Cineza
