I haven't looked into upgrading the firmware yet. If the VB comes back, that sounds like a reasonable next step though...

Mr. Green,

I think you would probably be very happy with the AE700.

That being said, VB is the main reason I decided not to buy one. It is very obvious to me, even with an HDTV signal. Some people may never notice it. I see it almost continuously. I wish I didn't, because other than VB the AE700 is perfectly acceptable to me. The occasional FPN or scanline artifacts don't really bother me like it does some.

Jimcdenver,

I never noticed VB on the 10HT either. I would definetely recommend you see one of the newer LCD units before making any changes.

I have had my Panny 700 since the beginning of November and have never seen any VB at all. I could not be more happy with this projector, it is perfect for the home cinema with the 2X zoom lens, and horizontal/vertical lens shift, and the picture is truly spectacular.

I have had my Panny 700 for 25 days now and it would be a great unit if there weren't any VB. But I do have the Vertical Banding issue with mine. I am very picky about the image quality. I bought the Panny to replace my 3 year old XGA res. Liesegang DV335 LCD projector, which has a 4:3 ratio- watching widescreen movies with it, I saw the pixels-too much screendoor effect. So the Panny sounded great with the higher resolution, a native widescreen format and the smooth-screen technology. But I am personally so annoyed by the vertical banding issue, that I would say it bothers me to a point that I can't enjoy the movie anymore. So, how bad is it?-6 to 7 out of ten-mine is bad! My old Liesgang shows some screendoor effect due to the lower resolution, and the colors are not as great as on the Panny, but I never had any VB on that old thing. Please, please-if anybody has found a way of solving the Vertical Banding issue on the Panasonic, let me know how to do it. I can't believe how many people claim to not be able to see VB on their AE 700's. I see it in every low contrast scene with medium to light colors.So, unless all movies you intend to watch are playing at night or in the dark, you will see VB on your Panny.
