Summary: Don't buy this uless you want a disposable projector. Worked GREAT for a while, then a blue blob started on the right side of the screen and within 3 months took over the whole screen and it is now useless. Cheaper to replace than to repair the bad panel or polarizer...will go with Sanyo this time
Summary: I agree with the review that this is a defective product. My bulb blew at 312 hours. Wasn't under warranty and cost me another $400+ to replace. Panasonic service online and on-phone are terrible. Then had same problem with cycle-on and cycle-off.
Summary: I have been a proud owner of this projector for a short while over a year. I love the picture this projector creates. Bright, smooth images and the HD is awesome. However, there is a manufacturer's defect in the bulb. My bulb, after only putting 470 hours onto it, exploded last night.
Summary: I was happy with this projector for a year, then within two months of the one-year warranty expiring it went quickly downhill. The power supply went bad, which made the projector nothing but a $2000 paperweight.
Excerpt: Der Beamter Panasonic PT-AE700E ist wirklich Schrott. Ich kann mich der Kritik nur anschließen. Nach nicht einmal einem Fünftel der angegebenen Betriebsdauer war die Lampe defekt. Das Gerät war gerade 1 Jahr alt. Dabei wurde das Gerät sehr schonend behandelt, Filter brav gereinigt usw.
