Excerpt: This is the third home theater projector I have owned over the last 16 years and is clearly the best. It is bright enough to use during the day which makes my wife very happy. The Panasonic PT AX 100u that it replaces is great, and has given me much pleasure for the past 8 years, but this one...
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote, Intuitive Controls
Summary: Personal Experience my experience has been very good with this projector. I would recommend it to people who are dealing with ambient light. I dont like to be in the dark all the time and it gives you that flexibility. the unit is big but really ... who cares.
Excerpt: Even in daylight situations this Panasonic projector projects a clear and crisp image on the screen. The brightness is markedly better than Epson projector it's replacing. The noise level is the same as my Epson EX7200 at 29Db, but not noticeable while watching TV.
Summary: Personal Experience A friend of mine put a $3500 Epson projector on a 120" screen in his man cave, that I thought was amazing. Way way better than the projectors of a few years ago. So when my flat panel lcd died I took the leap.
The fine features of the projector need no restatement
4 September 2014
Summary: The fine features of the projector need no restatement. However, there is one “bug” in the works. The [Menu/Option/Lamp Runtime] issued a “change lamp” message at 2000 hours. We dutifully swapped the lamp, only to realize that the original had not failed.
Excerpt: I just purchased and installed this projector in our bonus room/home theater. The room is very bright during the day which has been a problem with my previous projector when watching sporting events on the weekend.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Plenty Bright, Sharp Picture
Excerpt: I have been using the PT AR-100U for the last 2 years and all I can say is "what a product". This is the best Panasonic projector in its series available. The performance is superb and the picture output is mind blowing.
Pros: Clear Sound, Contrast Ratio, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote, Intuitive Controls
Excerpt: The picture quality for the cost on this projector is excellent. Our previous projector had vertical and horizontal lens shift, so that was a requirement so we wouldn't need to move mounts and existing cabling. This was the only product at a reasonable cost with those features.
