    I have found dated info here regarding these 2 projectors, but nothing really recent. Since they have been out in the market for a while now, I wonder if the experts and/or those who own these projectors can help me to decide which one to buy. My set up is an elite 100" 16:9 screen in a...

    Got my projector half fast setup on a shelf for now just to get me to dial in what screen I need to buy.
