I've had my eye on this projector for a while, ever since posters here recommended it to me when I said I wanted to make the jump to front projection. Lots of people on other forums swear by them as the best bang for your buck, especially since they can be had relatively cheaply by ordering directly from pricejapan.com ... But I had never seen an "official" review for the AE100 until projector central finally came up with one - just in time for the AE100 to be discontinued in favor of the AE200 and the AE300. http://www.projectorcentral.com/panasonic_ae100.htm Because of the newer models, the price for the AE100 has dropped to $1,224, which is pretty incredible. But I don't know if it makes sense to order now that the new line is coming out and pricejapan has dropped their policy of allowing AE100 with stuck pixels to be exchanged. Now you are stuck with the stuck pixels. The AE200 is roughly $1,500 and it has a 30 day return policy for stuck pixels. But it doesn't look like that much of an upgrade from the AE100. Is the extra $300 or so worth it? Any opinions on either projector?
