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. I wish to say only that the picture quality is excellent, it has a very low noise level, and is easy to set up. The cinema modes go very well with my negative gain high contrast screen.
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. The 2D performance of this projector is outstanding, it's like owning a 120" plasma display, it's sharp, has nice black levels and the brightness is more than enough.
The picture is amazing! Contrast ratio is unbelievable

Summary: I own a home theater company, and this is the projector along with the 8000u that I put in all the homes with a theater unless asked not to. The picture is amazing! Contrast ratio is unbelievable! I built my separate garage into a theater room, and this is the exact projector I used in there. Can't go wrong with this one! Football is a dream to watch on here!
Great image- super value- picture as good as Runco in my opinion

Summary: What a fantastic projector- Color rendition is awesome, picture quality is infinitely adjustable- some adventures getting presets organized and set up but not too bad. No screen yet (Not built) but at 160" diag and 19' viewing distance the image is still amazing on a flat white wall. Quiet, looks sharp, easy to operate, get an aftermarket mount vs the panasonic.
Summary: We have had a projector before and enjoyed it, but this projector is so startlingly clear. It's like being at the movie theater, but more comfortable! We are watching more movies and loving it.
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: 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.
