Defective

D. Friedland, Amazon
13 January 2008
  • 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. Took it in person to nearest Panasonic authorized service center (75 miles away) and they told me it was just dusty and charged $120 for the evaluation and cleaning. Came home and it still does the same thing.

Bulbs blow at less than 500 hours

Jeremy Trim, Amazon
14 May 2005
  • 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. I'm finding case after case of this happening to people with this projector. I can only hope panasonic will do the right thing and replace my bulb at no cost.

Defective Blue LCD Panel/Polarizer

S. Bowden, Amazon
14 May 2005
  • 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..

Warning! Defective Product!

Ronnie Sortor, Amazon
14 May 2005
  • 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. It's a very common problem with this model, judging from all the complaints on home-theater forums. It would power on and almost immediatly shut itself off, then try to restart over and over until the main power switch on the back of the unit got turned off.

Panasonic ist Schrott

pannensonic, Ciao
8 November 2008
  • Summary: 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. Das übliche Geblubber bei Panasonic, und dann auch noch in ziemlich unverschämten Ton. Eine Garantieleistung haben sie ebenso abgelehnt wie eine Kulanzregelung.
  • Pros: viel Wind um Nichts
  • Cons: Defekte, nichts als Defekte

Hände weg

wertheimer, Ciao
14 July 2006
  • Summary: Ich haben den Panasonic Beamer PT- AE 700 E vor ca. einem Jahr gekauft. Der Kaufentscheidung voran ging ein umfangreiches Studium von Werbematerial, Datenblättern und Internetrecherchen. Umso größer danach jedoch die Enttäuschung: nach gerademal einem Achtel der beworbenen und zu erwartenden Betriebsdauer , übrigens samt und sonders im sogenannten Flüsterbetrieb, ging nach einem Jahr die Lampe kaputt.
  • Pros: Bild OK
  • Cons: Lampe sehr schnell kaputt
