Bjorn, thanks for the reply. I've bought other Panasonic items in the past and have been very happy with them, so the issues with my current projector and the cost to repair them caught me off guard. I guess I'll weigh paying $600 for the new video block and $300 for a new bulb on my AE700 so that will hopefully get me a couple more years (during which features will increase and hopefully prices drop) versus jumping in and spending $2k on this new projector. My room setup will demand more flexibility than, say, the Optoma HD20 would provide (16 foot cathedral ceiling with 8 foot walls means center post, horizontal aimed projector, which the AE700 and AE4000 are well suited for). And add in to the equation my new Blu-Ray player...
