Be sure to let us know what you think about it in comparison once you get it in and get it setup.
Mounted the new AE4000 yesterday and fired it up. First impression was that the fan was considerably more quiet than the Sharp. The picture quality prior to calibration is just amazing. Not really fair to compare a 1080p resolution to the native 720p of the Sharp. The Z1200 had a very nice picture as well, but the AE4000 is another level better for sure. In Dynamic Iris, the AE4000 is quite a bit brighter on my 120" Dalite Hi Power. I used the same mounting location. Using the DVE HD calibration disk demonstration, the blacks looked to be much deeper as well.Be sure to let us know what you think about it in comparison once you get it in and get it setup.
Not sure what the difference is. Next time I fire it up I will check on the airflow issue. Spec wise, the Panny system is supposed to be considerably quiet I believe.Congrats on the upgrade, Rudy, and thanks for the comments. It seems like this projector is an all-around winner. Is there much air flow using it in econ mode? You mentioned that it is quiet, do you think that the fans are just better than the ones in your last PJ (quieter) or are they pushing less air?
Interesting idea. So far, from what I have read, there is no problem running in eco-mode. The picture is not as bright, but I don't need the extra brightness as a general rule. I would only use the brighter setting with ambient light during football games or something where ambient light is desirable.I run mine in eco mode with high altitude mode turned on (this has the fan running faster than normal) but keeps the entire enclosure cooler and as we all know heat is electronics biggest enemy. It is still very quiet compared to my previous Sanyo Z4
