Personal Experience
I reserached different PJ units within the $2-$3K range for well over 2 months before deciding on the Sanyo Z3. I have to say not only does it perform like a dream but how can you possibly go wrong with the price ($1500) and warranty (3years). This is my first PJ and it's more than perfect for my needs and budget. I have my Sanyo ceiling mounted 12' from a 106" diagonal "Goo" Digital Gray Lite painted wall in my newly finished basement, seating area is 13' so right below the PJ ( by the way this unit is absolutely silent) The area is not a dedicated theater room so there is controlable ambient lighting. I can get it fairly dark during the day and believe me the picture from the Samsung HD-DVD via Component is simply outstanding regardless, the evenings when I can get it pitch black, WOW!!!! This weekend I'm having Comcast set up HDTV via the HDMI port and I simply can't wait to sit back and enjoy football games this season (especially night games, ha ha) and any and all HD broadcasts. In my opinion this is an excellent value for the money and I would highly reccommend that you go out and get one, or wait for the Z4 that I'm sure will be even better, but probably more $ too.
