I am looking for a front projector for home theater and was considering the Yamaha LPX-500 based upon favorable reviews in Sound & Vision and based upon a fairly impressive demo. However, looking a little further into the market, the Mitsubishi XD300U looks to be, at least statistically, much better. The Yamaha is LCD-based and produces 800 lumins and has a lamp life of about 2000 hours. The Mitubishi is DLP-based and produces 2100 Lumins and has a lamp life of 4000 hours. Both list for around $5k, but the Mitsubishi seems to have a street price around $3k while the Yamaha seems sell for about $4500. Statistically, the Mitusbishi seems to be a great unit, but I haven't seen anything written about it in home theater publications -- I have seen very positive reviews for the Mitsubishi in PC magazines. Maybe the difference is that the Mitsu is more of a data projector than movie, but it supports all HDTV formats and bills itself as a home theater unit. Does anybody have experience with these models or know of other products that should be considered? I am looking for something under $5k because I know that whatever I buy today will be an antique in 3 years.
