Excerpt: From the moment I first saw Panasonic’s new PT-AT5000 3D projector running alongside its AE4000 predecessor at a swanky launch event in Los Angeles, I knew it was going to be something special. Though not necessarily because of its headlining 3D talents. For during this demo it seemed that the technological advances demanded to deliver convincing 3D pictures (see page 54) had led to Panasonic delivering a quantum leap in its 2D performance, too.
Pros: Good 3D pictures; quiet running; loads of set-up features
Cons: Some crosstalk; fiddly optical image shift system; big drop off in brightness moving to 3D
