Excerpt: Panasonic’s PT-AE3000U really ups the ante when it comes to features at this price point. Panasonic has consistently pushed the envelope on the budget side, and this LCD projector easily represents the company’s best effort to date. It offers solid performance and the most expansive feature set you could hope to find at or near this price point.
Conclusion: The Panasonic PT-AE3000 is an excellent projector. It is certainly one home theater projector that should please just about everyone, especially when you consider its price performance. In fact, there are no serious downsides to this Panasonic projector. True, its average brightness in both best and brightest modes, will lose it some potential owners, including those who plan on larger than 110" screens or have more than the minimal amounts of ambient light to deal with.

Summary: The PT-AE3000E is easily one of the best home-theatre projectors we've ever had the pleasure of testing. Short of a built-in Blu-ray player and drink dispenser it provides everything the average videophile could possibly want.
Pros: Superb image quality, lots of useful and innovative features, vastly improved contrast ratio (compared to PT-AE2000U)
Cons: There are cheaper (albeit inferior) HD home-theatre projectors on the market
Excerpt: One of the most popular questions we're asked, whether on the forums at whathifi.com or at shows around the country, is "should I buy a projector or a new television set?" Normally a large TV is seen as an alternative to a projector – a top-notch 46 or 50in set would be in the same price bracket.
Pros: Superb set-up procedure, full HD spec with three HDMI inputs, colourful, natural and detailed video, smooth motion, quiet operation
Summary: Aside from requests for free gadgets, one of the most popular questions in the Stuff mailbag is ‘should I buy a projector or a new TV?’ Normally a large telly is seen as an alternative to a projector – a top-notch 46in or 50in set would be in the same price bracket. But when you see the PT-AE3000 in action, it's a good reminder that a TV, no matter how good, really can't match the home-cinema experience that a projector gives.
