Re: BenQ PE8720 Projector

The way 8720 street prices are going here and the interest generating in 1080p pjs as they become available here, I'd advise you to either sell now or hold a year (for the longer term drop in 1080p prices when availability is no longer less than demand). Don't vascillate or you'll lose more.

I was advised by a friend last month this would happen, so took the advice and sold my 8720. (I love the 8720 PQ by the way - it was a really tough call to do). I think the 8720 was overpriced when it first hit the market here ($10000AUD) and it didn't sell many. I bought in at $4000AUD and sold for ~75% after 5 mths, so that was OK. The W10000 rrp has been announced at AUD12999, at which they won't sell many (again). The JVC at $8995 rrp will kill it - on price and I have little doubt on PQ also based on what I have read on the HD1. Unless BenQ drop their rrp locally and quickly to the sub 9K mark, and street for around the PEarl ($6400) they won't sell truckloads, despite I am sure it will be a wonderful pj based on the 8720.

PS I have never seen a W10000 - not avail here to view yet. But I would never have bought a W10000 as it does not meet my long throw needs - it is worse than the 8720 which also could not give me a 108" diag CIH scopescreen narrow enough. The JVC will work and I'll give it a new scope screen for a birthday pressie too.

Cheers

Re: BenQ PE8720 Projector

The w10000 is selling for around 6k here on the high end, I have seen if for lower though. I havent looked at prices for the JVC so I'm not sure if its lower or higher here.

The wife is already displeased at me mentioning wanting to get a new pj already (and losing a few thousand dollars on it) and were planning an upcoming vacation to Disney in the begining of May so unfortunately I wouldnt be able to make any new large purchases before then which means I would have to wait a couple months before selling my current pj.
