    I have read reviews on both of these projectors, and I am leaning toward the Epson Home 10 due to less SDE. Will be used mainly for DVD's(90%)& HDTV(10%). Have any of you compared these 2 projectors? I could use your input. Thanks.

    I believe the Z1 is a native 16:9 and I know the Epson is. I am leaning towards buying the Epson myself in the next few days, so I'm curious to see if other respond and what they say. I'm leaning towards the Epson for one reason, replacement bulbs are in the neighborhood of $200 vs the $450 for the Sanyo.

    ok,

    The Z1 is native 4:3 while the Z2 is 16:9. Z2 bulbs run from $250 - $300.

    Greetings

    The Z1 uses a 960x540 panel ... 16:9.

    Regards
