Summary: This product is really nice when it is calibrated. Really a has a contrast ratio as advertised. Almost crt level performance. Advice: put the r, g, b -16 brigthness setting all the way down and put regular picture brightmess past +16 or all the way up depemding on your preferenc3. That should be all their is to adjust for picture quality and sharpness at 5. Try to keep screen size 110 or less for best lumens output! Very cinematic picture.
Summary: This is one awesome projector. It must be coming up on 3 years now since I bought the PT-AE3000U and it's still going strong with no problems. In fact, with just over 2500 hours on it, I JUST replaced the bulb, which was VERY easy to do! The picture quality is excellent, the controls are easy to operate (the lens focus-zoom control is a bit qerky, where getting the lag right for perfect focus can be a little tricky) That would be the only thing that I can think of that...
Summary: I've used various LCD projectors for work for years, occasionally testing them at home to see if they could handle movies and video games. I was never satisfied with the clarity, the image size, the brightness, the lack of control of the image, etc. I'm quite picky when it comes to video. So, when I decided to use my income tax return on a projector, I spent 5-6 months researching the technologies available and comparable units.
Summary: Having owned this projector now for 21 mos. I think I can safely say that it is AWESOME!!!!! Sports,Movies,Any HD programming will just blow you away!I paid $2500.00 for this machine and would do it again in a heartbeat!I have my screen size set at about 91" diagonal,(approx.7' wide by 5' tall)and you couldn't ask for a better picture!
Summary: I got this projector about a year ago, and it's really been terrific. I've put about 400 hours of use on the bulb, and so far there have been zero problems. The projector is in an overhead mount - as another reviewer mentioned, the projector is not small (it's about the size of a small-footprint PC computer box). However, it's not so big that I can't take it off the ceiling if needed. Why would I do that?
Summary: Got one of these, but I really didn't know much about them at first. I wanted to buy a huge HDTV cause I love watching sports and playing PS3. Well, I went into Best Buy to buy a Mitsubishi 82in DLP. The cost of that tv was about $4500 plus an extra $1000 for a stand. I had the money to spend though. Then, the guy there took me in the theater room and showed me a Mitsubishi HC6500 on a 92in Projector Screen.
Summary: Personal Experience I've had this projector for about 6 months now and it's awesome! I used to have a Sony VPL-HS10 which was a great projector, but this new Panasonic takes it to another level! The black levels are stunning! The colors are perfect! I honestly can't find anything wrong with this projector. There are so many features, actually so many I haven't even needed to use.
Summary: Personal Experience I love this projector! Easy to install (ceiling mount), awesome image, just about every bell and whistle known to man and at a very affordable price. I have owned six different projectors since 1977 and this one represents the greatest "jump" in performance and technology thus far. This one is a "must have.
Summary: Personal Experience Great projector. I love the lens memory feature. For movies I go really large/wide and shift up to clear my low shelf where some of the AV gear lives. For HDTV I fill exactly what space I have above the AV equip and between my speakers. For SDTV I shrink it down a bit to minimize the impact of the SD resolution and to brighten it up a bit so more lights can be on. I just wish it supported IR codes for selecting each input.
