    Why hasn't the price of this projector come down at all. It seems like it's the only one that hasn't.

    Greetings

    You can buy this for $1000 or so ... what do you want? $500?

    It's been replaced .... and most units have been cleared out.

    Regards

    Michael, where can I buy the Panasonic 300 for $1,000? The lowest I've seen is $1,299. Thanks.

    Well, you can get the Z1 Sanyo for $999 from projector people ...

    It uses the same panel as the panasonic ... 960x540 ...

    Michael, I DON'T WANT THE SANYO Z1, I want the Panasonic 300. It got a much better review at Projectorcentral.com. Much less screen door effect they said.

    The lowest price I could find was $1199. That seems pretty much in line with the price reduction on other projectors over the past year. The price of the z1 was always a few hundred less than the Panasonic and that still seems to be the case.

    I paid over $1800 for my Panasonic 300 a little over a year ago, so the price has definitely dropped.

    I know you want the panny 300. However Visualapex.com has the Sanyo Z1 for 999 plus a free lamp. Not bad considering the lamp costs around $300. The reviews seem to be good for both. I now own the 300, but my office just purchased the Z1 for the recreational movie room.

    Best of luck with your search.
