Yes, Damien, that was the point I was making...first to ensure that the range of adjustment was enough for the envisaged usage and then to ensure that a user would be fully capable of making the adjustments (which are quite complex and need to follow strict sequences) when it is in the position of use. AND to be able to readjust for a totally different set of circumstances if it were required to use it somewhere else. The adjustments in question are not only mechanical but also electronic in nature.

Set up was very easy on the Panasonic AE2000E LCD. Out of the box it was amazing, all it really NEEDED was a couple of notches down on the colour. Great and very film-like. Later I tweaked a bit more with the colour temperature and made a preset for black and white with the colour right down. But really, it was SO good just turned on.

I`ve just been offered a very nice Philips XGA LCD machine from a good chap and a new bulb fitted as well £125 + post a super starter machine if anyone in the UK is interested. Decent zoom etc.Cracking 2.3 million pixels you won`t see etc.

I think the bulb would cost at least that usually.

I`d have bought it myself as back up if not skint.

Drop me a line if interested.

Best Mark.

Steven, the Panasonic AX200U needed NO adjustments out of the box! I ran it through Digital Video Essentials and it passed every test with flying colors! It's one incredible machine.

Just a note here to say the new NORTH BY NORTHWEST Blu-ray is STAGGERING in terms of picture quality: natural colour and incredible definition with the very finest grain and very 'filmy' looking on my equipment and settings. The sound is a little thin and harsh as it was only optical but clean for dialogue. A great film that hasn't dated and you really get to see how well Hitch used the VistaVision frame especially in the 'crop duster' scenes, making Cary Grant a tiny figure in a huge landscape. My mini-review...
