Topic:   best short throw projector

The Sanyo Z4 and Panasonic AE900U should both be at the top of your list. They are both short throw PJ's and can be had at incredible prices right now. For something a little cheaper the discontinued Sharp DT-300 is a very nice 576P projector with lens shift and short throw, it'll do 92" from 9'. eBay and Amazon usually are good places to find these.

Topic:   Rainbow Effect

I've seen "rainbows" in dark scenes as much or more than in bright ones, so I think it is more dependent on the movement of your eyes and of things on the screen, combined. Being so fleeting, it's hard to nail down. What I see are adjacent red, blue, and green stripes is a small area of the screen. It lasts shorter than the fast streak of a dim meteor that you ask yourself if you really saw. Of course, looking back at the area you saw it, it won't show up again, just like the meteor. But, although it lasts a shorter time, it is more distinctive with the tell-tale colors. I guess it's a good thing my colorwheel is 5X, not 2X. Luckily, I don't see RBE often, maybe less than once a movie, if I don't try to make it happen.

Topic:   BenQ PE7700 -vs- Mitsubishi HC900

I have a 1024x576 display and it looks about as detailed as from my 720p projector at 1.5X screen width or greater with HDTV or DVD. I've got 700 hours on my "4000" hour bulb. I'd much rather have slightly lower resolution than to change bulbs every 100 hours.

Topic:   which projector for my native??

You need a PAL resolution projector like my DT-300. If you get the low end DLPs like the H27 or SP4805, you're picture will need to be downsized to fit the projector's resolution. Problem is, a PAL res projector can't be had for under $1000 unless it's a refurb. There are some of those. You might try pricegrabber.com for places that sell them. Of course, the downsized picture provided by an ED projector like the ScreenPlay 4805 may be good enough for you. Lots of people watch DVDs on an 800x600 projector and prefer the picture to a rear projection TV. Your budget for both projector and screen is really limiting. B&H Photo had the Sanyo Z1 (954x544, I believe) for $600 last I knew, but it hardly seems available anywhere else. The projectors you've mentioned don't quite fit your budget new, so a refurbished unit may be your only choice. Good luck!

Topic:   Sharp DT-200

Cruiserone, I got my projector from Fry's Outpost.com. I was surprised to find that price and it sure didn't last long. Since I'd just recently gotten a Sanyo Z2 from Projector People, I was a bit dismayed I hadn't gotten the DT-300 first and skipped the Z2, but no biggie; I now have a backup and can expect to not need a new bulb so soon. I don't think either projector is quite up to the Panny AE700U or the Sanyo Z3, but not far behind, and getting them both for the same price as one of those doesn't seem like a bad deal to me. I'd not like paying $1650 for the Sharp, but a lot of people have paid more and been happy. Its specs are, of course, better than the DT-200's and has enough resolution and quality to compare favorably with the AE700 and Z3. Now I just hope the 4000 hr. (eco mode) bulb will last that long ($500 replacement) and that the 1-yr. warranty doesn't hint at expected life being shorter than most (same as AE700, though). It's made in Japan and that's a hopeful sign.
