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. This projector is about twice the size of my old one, but it's quieter too. In fact, I can only hear the fan when it shuts off and goes into cool-down mode, otherwise it's virtually silent.
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. First they were totally unhelpful about recommending a screen to go with the projector, as if they had nobody on staff who actually knew what a projector did. And should they advertise a rebate, do not expect it to be fulfilled.
Summary: Unpacked it, mounted it, and turned it on. It replaced an old projector I had for 6 years. Great picture, wonderful clarity. Simple to hookup. The menus and adjustments were a bit hard to figure out, but once I played with them, they did the job. The manual could use a quick 'how to' list of steps to install it upside down (ceiling mount). I had to read the menus inverted until I got to the configuration menu item to switch it.
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. Diagonal into single joist with 3.5" lag bolts. 22' throw and my screen is about 13' diagonal (in 16:9 for TV).
Summary: Haven't gone through with professional installation yet, but so far we've tested it out and it's met all of our expectations. However, the packaging and condition of the product surpassed all my expectations. Was packed in 3 boxes! All of which were in great condition. I had just bought some Polk Audio RTI-10's, and they came in soaked and destroyed boxes, therefore i was quite scared of how this one would come like, but was presently surprised!
Summary: I use this projector in basement, and the brightness and colors are stunning. 3D movies looks great. The only feature I would like to have from the 'big brother' AE-PT8000 model is the lens memory in 3D.
Summary: I've been using this projector since February with a 120" screen. The 2D performance is great. I bought this projector because of its high contrast ratio, which makes it easy to distinguish details during dark scenes. I generally watch movies in total darkness, but 2D images look fantastic even when I watch something during the day and there's a bit of ambient light creeping into the room.
