Summary: The item was received as expected and in good condition. The product is easy to use and of high quality. This is a well built projector. Light weight compact, this is about the size of a laptop computer. Three cooling fans keep it cool to the touch even after running for several hours. It has a nifty auto setup button. Instead of wasting time scrolling through the menus to select the right input source and focusing the projected image manually.
Summary: Personal Experience Sleek, compact, excellent projector for business people on the go. The bulb is slightly cheaper to replace than most projectors too. Very durable construction. At almost 2000 Lumens ANSI, this is an HD quality in projector. Finally a projector as compact as my laptop computer. It's a big picture in a small package. Problems The only things I don't like about this unit. The fans are noisy.
Summary: Personal Experience This unit gives a nice bright picture so you can blow your image size all the way out, but the contrast is fairly weak, which you notice whenever the image is dark. Set-up was easy and noise produced during operation [this is on econo mode] was modest, the conversion between picture formats was automatic and transparent. 1024x768 gives a significantly better than SD, if not spectacular, picture quality.
Summary: Before buying a Panasonic projector, check around and see whether you can get replacement lamps for it. I have been waiting over two months for a back-ordered ET-LAB10 replacement lamp to come from PC Nation. I checked around before placing the order and found that NO ONE seemed to have any in stock!!! I suppose Panasonic puts its full production of lamps into new projectors.
Summary: Personal Experience I have used my Panasonic PT-LB10VU projector for 225 hours now and I am still impressed by the excellent picture quality and brightness. The projector is ceiling mounted in a room with windows on three sides in Florida and the picture is plenty bright day or night. I especially like the fact that the projector automatically adjusts to the input type HDTV, DVD or standard TV.
Summary: Personal Experience In general, all Panasonic projectors impress both myself and my customers. This is primarily due to the high quality images you get from the awesome uniformity, whether showing video or data. I have only had 1 Panasonic projector come back to our offices and that was for a blown globe. Finding out that Panasonic produces their own lamps ensures constant availability for most of their projector ranges, and also breaks the Philips lamp monopoly.
