    I am thinking these two are in a similar sub £1000 price category (Z1 at £900 and the 200 at £700) so if you had the choice which would you go for?

    Am I right is saying they are both 16x9 and fairly quiet?

    Anyway.. opinions!!

    thanks a lot all!

    I own the sanyo z1
    This machine for the money is out of this world.
    I can't get over the colors. They are so bright and colorful they are scary.
    The fan noise is almost inaudible.
    I project on a 48x96 inch screen. This machine is a 16x9 native but can project at 4.3 with no trouble.
    I would suggest that it is used in a room where you can control the light in the room but short of complete daylight it still looks great.
    The only problem i had as so many others is the new burn in smell. IT IS NASTY... But goes away in an hour or so of initial burn in.controls are easy to use and i never even looked at the manual and figured it out easily.
    I think the on screen menu easy to use.
    Over all i would highly recommend it to you. I have not seen the other machine to give you an opinion.

    Thanks very much for your comments! I REALLY appreciate it. This burn in smell seems to be amusing! The rest of your post was very useful to me.

    thanks
