Just got the tracking number for my Panasonic AE4000 projector. It hasn’t popped up in the tracking system yet but I requested 2nd day air so it might get here by Saturday. Looks like I’ll have a good excuse to take Friday off so I can paint the walls.

Ooooohhh, aaaaahhh. Front projector. I've heard good things about the AE4000.

Would it be too much to ask for pics of the room after you've painted the walls and installed your screen/equipment? I like looking at the before and after process. Pretty please with sugar on top? ;\)

Dang, I want one of those, but my trusty Sanyo Z2 won't die after about 6 years, same bulb. \:\)

I also have my Prismasonic Anamorphic lens for sale since I would not need it anymore if I get a Panny..

Um, Randy, get up in the middle of the night and throw a freaking wrench into that sucker. She'll never know. Upgrade time. Booyah!

6 years is a long time for a bulb. How many hours do you have on it?

Hey Michael, that is a good question, I haven't checked in a long time, I'm sure it has to have a couple of 1,000 hours if I were to guess.

hmmm sabatoge....now that is an idea..

Let me know how the Panasonic looks, I am still trying to decide between the new Panasonic, and the new Epson. Too many choices!

Is your poltergeist on vacation, or does it simply play favorites with your toys?

No problem. The before pictures are in the first post of this thread. So far my lazy backside hasn’t accomplished much. Installed custom blackout blinds and window tinting which knocked down about 95% of the light. I’m hoping the 360 degree blackout curtains take care of the rest if not I’ll make spot corrections. Swapped the 2’ drop rod for a 1’ drop rod for the ceiling fan and painted the ceiling from 8’ up flat black.

I just emailed Dazian the specs for my curtains from work and will call Joan (she and Betty have been great to work with) for a final quote tomorrow.

Things left to do (damm I‘ve been lazy).

Paint the walls and trim
Assemble and hang the screen
Mount the curtain rods and hang the curtains when I get them.
Search and destroy any light source that dare enter the room
Run the wires (will go behind the curtain rods so no need to crawl in the attic)
Find optimal projector placement and image size
Make appropriate masking for 1.78 image size if needed and for 1.33 and 2.35
Reprogram remote for new equipment
Replace carpet after determining how dark is needed to prevent reflected light.
Install telescope flocking on front of ceiling if any light reflects from black paint
Install telescope flocking on M80s if any light reflects from them.
Take a week off work
Don ninja suit
Play “Bioshock” for the first time (only owned it two years waiting for this)
Watch all of “Battle Star Galactica” (have only seen the first season and a half)

I know the feeling about to many choices.

I went from liking an Epson to the AE3000 to a JVC to a Sony and now the AE4000 which with the improvements from the AE3000 made it a no brainer for my needs.

Lucky for me I vacillated on what to buy for long enough that the AE4000 came out.
