the thing that astounds me about my projector is how amazing an HD signal looks. A DVD signal looks pretty good through component video cables, but, even though it is downscaling the HD signal to a native resolution, it is like night and day compared to a DVD or regular television. I love HD, its like watching a photograph, its amazing!

This looks like it could be a real contender against a 40 Inch LCD HD TV setup, I expect a decent 40 Inch LCD HDTV would cost around £1500, whereas the projector itself is only around £500? How much is the screen and accessories? Speakers etc, would this be worth considering over a normal LCD TV?

wel the projector is

sony vplvw12ht
This was retailing for $10,000 NZD in its release day 2002
http://www.projectorcentral.com/Sony-VPL-VW12HT.htm

http://www.homecinemachoice.com/cgi-...?reviewid=2829

Now in NZ

klvv40 (top Bravia) is $6000 NZD currently
klvs40 (Silver bravia) is $5000 NZD currently

Screen
Orion 120" 1.1Gain
$600 NZD

Amp
Pioneer VSX607S
$1300 NZD

Speakers
Mediocre Sonys to get job done until more money rolls in
Around about $1000 NZD

Subs
Earthquake 15" Dual spider subs LS-15s
Around $599 NZD each
customer enclosure

Media PC
Hewlett Packard HP T760
Intervideo Win DVD with video Scaling
VGA to BNC out with 1280*720P
SPDIF output for ac3/dts



yea the bravia klvv40 and klvs40 are nice tvs. fantastic image quality but i think its a different kinda thing to hd projectors. i think the klv series are nie tvs but so much money for so little picture i think. but thts me. i tink in the league of tvs tht would be up ther with the best of things. prob only the new pioneer 50" plasma would be in a position to take it on directly.

Spec wise they are very similar.

projector is 1366*768 res, 1000:1 contrast, pixel reaction rate is arnd 6ms.
