The Hitachi PJ-TX100 projector is fairing well compared to the Panasonic PT500, Sony HS20 and Sanyo Z2. Its available in Europe and the UK and next week its available from Japan. In the next few weeks, hopefully it will be available from the US and Canada. It looks really flexible from installing with a really long and wide zoom, and also decent lens shift features. Contrast is very good with this projector. I am waiting to see what it looks like and how much it is through the various sources. Should be pretty cool Anyone else interested?
