Summary: Personal Experience This is my first full HD 3D projector after owning a DLP 720p 3D ready projector previous to this one. I am susceptible to rainbows in DLP so I decided on this projector for full HD 3D, also there weren't many, if any, full HD 3D DLP projectors on the market at the time.
Summary: As our first projector, and not being experts, the picture is fantastic, it is easy to use and set up, and overall we love the product. However I have to warn you that Panasonic's customer service is disastrously bad.
Summary: This unit is amazing. The 3D is a little dark with the (proprietary!) eyewear, but you can use a mode on the PJ to brighten the picture. My install: Dedicated theater room with complete light control. Chief ceiling mount with extension pole and 8" square Chief reciever plate.
Summary: I had a 2D 720p Samsung home cinema projector for the past 5 years. I finally decided to upgrade due to the 3D capability and higher resolution and the low price. Yes, this was going for around $3000 when it first came out, but I picked up a "used" projector from Amazon Warehouse Deals for $2300.
Summary: Personal Experience This is my first projector. The system picture is excellent in my humble opinion. I really have nothing to compare it too but I'm happy. Installation was simple, configuration out of the box was good and I think the reviews I've read seem right on.
Summary: Amazing projector, everyone who comes over loves it, makes tv, games and movies so much better. Crystal clear pictures, as clear as our lcd's, quite, bright even with the curtains open. Worth every penny.
Summary: Amazing color representation and clarity with massive adjustments, if you like to tweak things to your preferences, great 3D effect. The standard settings are not the best, you can get best picture by doing some tweaking here and there. Best time to buy at best price is when new model is out.
Summary: I upgraded from a Panasonic PT-AE900u which was on its original bulb and was getting quite dim. Rather than spending over $300 on the old projector, I decided to upgrade. The picture quality in both 2d and 3d on the PT-AE7000U is amazing. It's bright and clear on my 106" screen.
Summary: I've had this projector for a couple of years now. It followed another Panasonic projector that I liked. But since I started using the AE7000, the differences were very clear. I will not go into tech details, several other reviewers have done that.
