I'm looking for a secondary projector for our church. It is going to be used to display lyrics on back wall for choir. Based on the budget and features, I've narrowed the list down to 2 projectors: Panasonic PT-VX400U vs. Sony VPL-EX275. Both projectors are fairly new and there are no reviews. Panasonic has slightly higher brightness (4000 vs. 3700) but Sony seems to have more connectivity options.
The noise level is listed for Panasonic but it is not known for Sony (I've checked specs on Sony website also). The noise level is important to me since the projector is going to be placed in the main sitting area until we manage to mount it on the ceiling.
FocusedTechnology has Sony for very low price. I'm not sure how they can do that and if there is any catch.
I will appreciate if anyone can provide any comments/suggestions.
