Well I went ahead and did it. I just preordered the Panasonic AE7000 from Projector People today. It’s supposed to start shipping the last week of September or first week of October. I broke down because I’ve got the Star Wars BDs and Gears of War 3 arriving by the end of the month and Shyrim second week in November all supposedly before the new Epson projectors will be out. There are 63 people ahead of me which was about the same as when I ordered the AE4000 and I got it in the first shipment.

I also went ahead and ordered a replacement bulb, second one in two years, for my AE4000 and plan to continue using it for everyday computer monitor and Netflix streaming.
