The newest generation of front projectors are looking good. If anybody has any experience with any of these, please feel free to comment. The Pearl is shipping, and I believe the Mitsubishi will be shipping soon. Not sure about the Panasonic and I don't even know the model number of JVC's latest D-ILA projector, but the announcement that a new D-ILA should be forthcoming from JVC at some point was made in September. I personally don't like DLP and these LCD and LCOS projectors are apparantly delivering good performance in terms of contrast. I saw a Sony Qualia 004 in action once, and I know the Ruby has been out for about a year or so at $10K USD. Most of the above projectors I list in the subject should street for under their MSRP's of around $5K. Is anyone else interested to see what these new beasts have to offer?
