I'm a newbie to the fight. I really like the forum. I have a question that hopefully some of you can help me with. I have an opportunity to get a Sharp 9000 that was a demo unit with low hours plus a new bulb for $4500. Is this a deal or with newer technology that's out, would it be better to go withsomething less expesive (such as the Sanyo Z2 or Panasonic 500 or the Sony HS20)? I know these are different technologies being DLP vs LCD but I just want to know your thoughts Thank you any help you can give.
