Summary: I have this one for around 350$ from my friends. It does display crystal clear picture. Brightness is good enough in moderate ambient light. I'm satisfied with this one. If you are short of money, this one is for you. Recommended
Summary: I traded in this for a different model which was a mistake. This projector was so reliable and great picture. Love the zoom and keystone correction! Panasonic is the best You can't go wrong with this model. Good luck.
Summary: We've had our projector for almost 7years and have gone through 3bulbs which includes the original. We use this as our everything TV. Typically, we are about 25-30 hours a week of daily TV, movies, and video games.
Summary: Personal Experience My projector is a May 2006 model and I've owned it for almost 5 years. It was a wonderful upgrade to the Infocus X1. My original bulb just now burnt out, (one week before super bowl party!) 2401hrs on the High/Bright setting with Iris.
Summary: Personal Experience I've had this projector for over 3.5 years now and with over 1,900 hrs on the lamp it runs as good as new. Excellent picture quality and very reliable! Problems None whatsoever.
Summary: Not too happy. Received the unit in an oversized box with one thin single 1/4" bubble wrap around it, at least a few inches on every side of room for it to knock around in the box during shipping. The lens is damaged.
Summary: I have hooked it up and found the yellow component jack to be faulty. The picture skips and flutters when using it. I've worked around it with the s-video port but this shouldn't happen to a projector with only 300 hours on it.
Summary: Even though it's ~5 years old, the Panny AE900 is still a great HD 720p projector for home theater use. Incredibly easy to use with plenty of zoom to be fit for almost any room. Projects a crisp, clean and vibrant image.
Summary: Personal Experience Overall the projector is quite good, as it is my first projector. The picture quality is outstanding as long as it's working as it should... the first time I used it I was blown away and had never seen anything better in any kind of home environment before that.
