Summary: Personal Experience The native WXGA RESOLUTION is ok for using it with a wide screen computer. The contrast ratio and brightness ensure crisp, clear presentations: automatic fonctionnalits as they allow quick setup. Problems usability and value are not always on top
Summary: I bought this to replace my existing PT-AE700U projector. I didn't want to upgrade because I already have a couple of unused bulbs. This projector is fantastic! I am using it with a 106" screen.
Summary: I purchased the PT-AE700U in early 2005, and have been impressed by everything about it, other than bulb life. This one is on its third bulb--all used at low power and high fan settings. It is very enjoyable and satisfying to watch on a 12'/4' painted wall "screen".
Summary: Personal Experience I was thrilled with the Panasonic PT-AE700U 's performance right out of the box. It was easy to set up and operate. The picture quality was great. The projected worked very well for the first year. I lost a bulb right after my first year and to replace that.
Summary: Personal Experience Bought it Feb 2005 and was extremely pleased until just recently see this blue haze especially noticeable when projecting black. I have 3,500 of use and just put in my 3rd bulb. So this amounts to over $1 per hour of use. Way too high.
Summary: Personal Experience I've had the 700 for 2 1/2 years and it was working great until about 2 weeks ago, the blue tint on the left side has snuck in and makes movies almost unwatchable for me. Up until that point, I had no complaints but now it's time to replace it.
Summary: Personal Experience I have had this projector for about 2 years. Overall, right up until the bulb blew, I was happy with the projector. The good, great picture, simple setup, low but noticeable fan noise. Problems Biggest problem is a common one apparently, the bulb only lasted around 700 hours.
Summary: Personal Experience Good picture quality! Problems The illumination is below a minimum for viewing after only 530 hours in two years, luckily i found a new bulb at nearly half price of the local dealers, check out http://smartimports.net/ !
