Apologies to Planar
The review of the AX200 is mostly complete, but we are waiting for Panasonic to announce a price on this model. It is not possible to make an assessment of the price/performance value rating until we know the price. So the review will be posted within a day or two of Panasonic's price decision, and at the moment we have no idea when that will be.
My apologies to Planar ... I inadvertently neglected to mention their release of three new 1080p single-chip DLP projectors in the CEDIA show review. I have added a paragraph to the review to rectify this omission. These new models include the top of the line PD8150 to be shipping in December at a retail of $8,999. This is rated at 15,000:1 contrast and 1000 ANSI lumens. The PD8130 and PE8120 are less fully featured versions rated at 10,000:1 contrast that will sell for $6,999 and $5,999 respectively. All three will be sold exclusively through CEDIA dealers on a restricted basis.
Thanks for using ProjectorCentral,
