I have never owned a projector before and I have narrowed down my choice for my price range between the Panasonic PT-AE4000U and the LG CF181D. I think I have read all of the reviews possible for the 2 projectors and I am still struggling with which one to go with. I have read that the Panasonic with the new "Red" lamp produces a red tint to skin tones and other lamp life issues. I haven't read anything negative about the LG but I was trying to figure out if the contrast differences would be enough to choose the Panasonic? LG has the LCoS which is supposed to be the VERY best (that I have read anyway) with picture quality. I am a big plasma junkie and I know that the pictures from this price range of projectors probably will not compare but I have heard that LG produces the closest thing to plasma in this price range. Any help in this decision making would be greatly appreciated.
