I'm just interested in one that I can play with basically, to estimate screen size, projector positioning, and do some viewing. I want a constant height setup and I need a projector that can do that without having to use an anamorphic lens. I know the Panasonic 4000 can do that with zoom, but I'm not sure about the 3000. I saw where a 3000 was being sold for $950, but I thought that was too much for it.

AFAIK any decent projector these days can do CIH. The only advantage the pannyís have is the auto zoom feature that does it for you. Otherwise you just have to adjust it either manually at the projector (which would be a pain for most placements) or do it with the remote. Before locking yourself into a Panny for the auto zoom consider how often youíll be switching between formats and how much of a pain it would be to do by hand or with the remote.

Also, why CIH, are you height constrained in your setup?

7 foot ceiling, probably a little less after floor treatments. I prefer the 2.35 screen over the other. Especially for closer viewing, 10-11 foot.

Ours will be about 7'8" until I put a stage up front. Thinking of just an 8' stage, so I will have about 7' as well from ceiling to the top of the stage.

I'm very jealous, Dean. I can't wait to get a projector.

Charles, once you switch to the big screen you will want to use it for everything. My original plan to mostly use my LCD HDTV for computing to preserve the lamp in my projector went out the window in the first month. I still use the LCD when I donít plan to have the projector on for more than about 30 minutes. Other than that the only other time I use it is when playing video games I can keep the big screen set to the video game while Iím looking up cheats on the LDC. Makes it easier to find things on maps and such than toggling back and for between the game and the computer on the big screen.

I just got a call from Projector People saying that the AE7000 should drop ship direct from Panasonic next Friday. The street price is $2,999 or 3K as they expected. I confirmed my order so I should be getting it the first week of October.

Itís going to be hard to hold off on Gears of War 3 since it should arrive today and I have a three day weekend coming up.

Why is it that street seems to always be $500 less, no matter what the MSRP is? LOL

I figured it out... It is $500 less so that you can (almost) factor in the cost of 4 pairs of 3D glasses...

Dang, I thought that it came with 2 pairs, but alas, it comes with none, and they look to be selling at $150 each... Ouch.

Actually the $500 off the MSRP price is that same thing Panasonic did last time with the AE4000. They never really dropped the price either, though they did a few promotions like extending the warranty a year.

I only plan to get one pair of glasses at first to see if I can even watch 3D. When I tried it in a store a while ago Avatar hurt my head instantly, though Monsters vs. Aliens didnít nor did the upgraded 2D to 3D movie they had on though it didnít look like much either.

Darn! Gears of War 3 got here today. I think I feel a sick day or two coming on.
