Regarding waiting for prices to drop. IMO, try to use some perspective here. I personally don't care what you buy, nor I am trying to sell anything, other than my viewpoint. Sure, prices for consumer electronics and computer components drop all the time. New models and technologies are developed. Thing is, if you want to enjoy the benefits, you need to pull the plug at some point, and get on with life. If you don't, you can get paralyzed by making choices and you never get anything done, nor enjoy the benefits of todays technology. Here is a quick tale of Sasha (that's me) and my friend Gary. Sasha and Gary both understand the many benefits of HDTV. They both started researching to get an HDTV display about the same time. I found what I wanted and bought it. Even though I am "in the biz", the DLP model I wanted at the time was in short supply, so no dealer-cost deal for me, no I had to find one on the open market and paid accordingly. And I had to wait about 6 months for delivery. Gary on the other hand, this whole time is researching and waiting for prices to drop, all fine and good. Gary has to this day, almost 6 years later, yet to bite the bullet and make a buy. He is convinced that something better and cheaper is just around the corner. Sasha paid the bucks, but has been enjoying HDTV for many years and has moved on with life. Gary has not done any of these things. Is my DLP model obsolete? Can you get something similar for less now? Sure, but so what? We've had many great experiences with it and it has enhanced our lives. It does what I need it to do, is fully depreciated and I expect many more years of reliable service from it. I'm happy as a clam. One more thing about the price of projectors. Please try to have some perspective. Sure that HD model at 4K or so seems awful expensive. Thing is, a couple of years ago, it was not even available, but it's commercial-grade brother would run you maybe 10-15K, so please try to keep that in mind. Heck, 10 years ago, DLP projection routinely ran in the 30K-60K and up range and CRT projectors were insanely complex and equally expensive. So please try to remember that when you go projector shopping. Today's models are a bargain by any measure.
