Summary: Personal Experience My experience with the AE1000U has been good, when its' working properly. The picture and colours are nice and vivid- however the projector itself has proven to be a little bit "unstable" over time.
Summary: Personal Experience I loved it until it became non-responsive to IR control. Now my "$6000" projector needs a $1300 repair after two years of use (1100 hours). Problems The "A Circuit Board" and Iris need to be replaced after two years and only 1100 hours?
Summary: The one thing I promised myself that I would get after professional school was a projector for a home theater. I always wanted the "big screen" and wanted to be able to watch HDTV and HD DDVD as well as gaming. After graduation, I did my research and found this to be the best bang for the buck.
Summary: Personal Experience This is my first projector, and I'm very impressed, especially with Blu-ray content. Impressed the crap out of me and my family projecting onto a 120" about 15 feet away. Problems I bought the unit refurbished for about 2200 in Oct 2007..
Summary: Personal Experience An outstanding projector. I have mine set up in a home theater wich has no outside light. Screen goo screen with a 14 foot diag. This is the maximum allowable for this projector while still being in the ideal distance/screen size.
Summary: Personal Experience I've been through several projectors over the years. I did a TON of research before I decided on the AE1000U. I'm proude to say that I made the right choice. The details of the picture is nothing short of phnomenal. Best choice/best projector on the market. Problems No problems.
Summary: Personal Experience I'm assuming you have researched all of the reviews on this projector and I can say they are all accurate and more. I used the same reviews to make my decision and buy it. I have a slight twist on this projector that you will not see in any other reviews though.
Summary: Personal Experience I am floored at the quality of this projector. Absolutely amazed. I purchased this unit in June while Panny was having a $1000 rebate. I paid $2700. I received the rebate check within 6 weeks.
Summary: Personal Experience I've had this projector for about a month now. I purchased used for about 2k and I couldn't be happier with my purchase!! I use a Dalite screen made for digital projectors, while it is gray and low gain, I still am very happy with the image I have.
Summary: Personal Experience I went from the Sony HS51 to this projector and what a jump it was. The picture is perfectly clear, the colors jump off of the screen. Truthfully, this projector puts commercial theaters to shame.
