HDTVs aren't the only thing coming down in price. Sony today announced its two lowest-priced front projectors, the Bravia AW10 ($1,000) and the Bravia AW15 ($1,300). Both projectors have a native 720p resolution with HDMI, component, and composite inputs. They both support 1080p video at 24 frames per second and will automatically downscale the picture to fit. The pricier AW15 also has a dynamic iris lens, which Sony says allows for a 12,000:1 contrast ratio (the AW10 has a 6,000:1 contrast ratio). Both units will be out in June for anyone looking to dip their toes into the projector world.
So, is the Panasonic HD projector "dealzmodo" of last week better than this Sony? With rebate, the Panasonic is $1500 (more expensive than this one, but with seemingly the same specs).
I am wanting to get a projector for my basement I am finishing in 2 months and want some bang for my buck (in the 1-2K range.
