Hello to all... First I would like to say that I am new to HTF though I have been reading posts for some time. I am looking into purchasing an FP and have about $1500-2000 that I can spend and still stay married. I know all the players in this area...the X1, the Z1, the panny 300, and the sharp dt 200. Problem is...I have only been able to see demos of the z1 and the dt200 though I have read all the reviews of the other two. So here is where I run into a problem.... the room I will be using is on the small side. The length of the room is only 11'4". So I am looking at lens to screen distances of probably 9.5-10'. I would like to have an 80" 16:9 screen as this room will be mostly for watching movies and I will be sitting 1.5x the width(roughly) This rules out the X1...its throw is too long to get that size image. The Z1 that I demoed had too much SDE for me at 1.5x even on an 80" image.(I have too keen of eyesight I guess. So, I am down to the panny and the dt200...one is 1/4HD with correct aspect ratio...the other, 4:3 but can be picked up for the price of the X1. So my dilema is...do I go with the dt200(DLP...not affected by rainbows by the way), or do I go with the panny 300 which I have never seen(LCD, 16:9 and several hundred $ more). Anyone that would be gracious enough to help me out...I thank you in advance. Allan P.
