If you're counting on that $1,ooo you might be in trouble!
While the Epson has the lowest MSRP, the Panasonic 1080p PJ is actually $200 less after the $1k cash rebate.

Epson is one of the few companies that make the actual LCD panels - they are about as legit as it comes. Up until now they were a bit pricey and I don't think anyone expected them to come out with the first 1080p under $3k.
The LPX-510 Yamaha projector i love and own was/is essentially an Epson with improved optics and chassis.
I am in the market for a 1080p FP and it looks like we have a winner! Two questions: 1) Other than having better resolution, would you recommend this FP over your Yammie 510? 2)Would running the digital RapidRun cable be the right choice for connection? If I were to buy this FP, it would sit a little over 9 feet high on a small shelf I will build for it and slightly less than 19 feet from the screen. I am considering a 100 inch screen. I anticipate the top of the screen at about 7.5 feet off the floor. The room is 25 x 20 open beam gabled. It is all drywalled except for the ridge beam which is partially visible for decoration.
Does anyone know if the new in-wall Klipsch THX Ultra2 speakers can be used in ceiling?
