I also really liked the specs on the AE7000. Two years ago when I got the AE4000 I vacillated between several different models but kept coming back the AE4000. I just decided this year to save all the bouncing between reviews just to end up doing the same thing. I’ve no issues with the AE4000 and even though it’s not a light cannon and I’ve got a pretty big screen with the projector 19 feet away it’s still plenty bright enough, however I don’t think it would work as well in a non-black-out room with a similar sized screen.
