bought this mainly for business presentations and projecting my laptop screen and have to say I am very pleased with the performance of this product. The unit is very light and compact and the brightness is more than enough even in a fairly bright room. When I was researching units I got confused about the difference between native resolution and input resolution. Basically I thought that if the native resolution was 800x600 then I would have to change my laptop resolution to match it.
Cheap, powerful, and built to last
Overall a top-notch projecter offering HD graphics on a HUGE scale to the average joe on a budget. It seems not only built for perfomance but for longevity also. Maybes it is time you traded your tv in.
Dynamic range has been improved
Panasonic has been making home theater projectors for many, many years. The AE series, of which the AE8000 is the latest edition, started with the AE100 way back in 2001 -- ancient history by today's standards. It is clear by now that they've gotten very good at it.
Last year's AE7000 was a big step forward over the previous AE4000.
Great Projector, but be aware of who you are buying it from
I love the projector, never-mind the 3D, it is not a subtle upgrade from the PT-AE4000. In terms of picture quality, everything is better - brightness, contrast, and clarity. It is actually bright enough that in a reasonably light controlled setting, you could run in ECO mode and be perfectly happy. Again, going from PT-AE4000 to the 8000 is well worth it. 3D seemed fine, just make sure that you purchase the correct 3D glasses as there are different versions, even within Panasonic.
It produces a bright, vibrant image with solid contrast
Shortly after buying my first front projector, an Epson, I made the leap to Panasonic and, for four years after my initial purchase, I bought the new model every year without fail. Had I not switched to JVC about five years ago, I could assume I'd probably be a Panasonic front-projection customer even today. But shaking things up has a way of changing one's perspective on things.
Very good color balance with all but the brightest picture mode
The Panasonic PT-DZ770UL is an excellent performer and a good bargain for someone looking for a large venue, commercial projector with 2K or WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution.. It offers a combination of high brightness, excellent sharpness, and good color balance and image depth, all at a street price that is among the lowest in its class. With easy setup via its power zoom, focus and lens shift, as well as its variety of available lenses, it is easily integrated into any installation.
Well-rounded, highly capable projector
The Panasonic DZ770UK is a powerful WUXGA projector that has a little bit of everything. Its real strength is in its Cinema mode, which offers the killer combination of high light output, strong color saturation, and good default color accuracy. The projector's small size, low audible noise, and low heat exhaust make it usable in smaller rooms where some of its competitors would overwhelm the space, but the projector has the lumen power to be used in a much larger room without issue.
Reasonably fast reaction time
The BZ-1 is, quite simply, an impressive ultra short throw interactive projector. It delivers a bright, 1280x800 image, excellent data image quality, good video for a data projector, good audio, a full complement of ports, the ability to work in tabletop mode, and suitably quiet operation.
Stacked against these strengths is a very short list of limitations, and no actual weaknesses.
Remarkably clear, stable 3D performance
When all is said and done, the Panasonic PT-AE7000U is a projector for the true videophile. It certainly has a boatload of features and yes, it has remarkably clear, stable 3D performance. But even if the AE7000 did not have 3D or a wide assortment of features, it would still stand out as a major video engineering achievement based on the strength of its 2D picture quality alone.
Frame Creation 2 is available for blur and judder reduction
With an MSRP of $3,499 and a street price around $3,000, the Panasonic PT-AE7000U looks to be a compelling contender in the entry-level 3D projection category. It offers an excellent level of setup flexibility and advanced picture adjustment, and early performance reviews have been very positive.
Comes with the interactive pen and software
The bottom line on the Hitachi iPJ-AW250N is that it is definitely an interactive projector with an incredible amount of features. It can achieve a very large image from just a foot two from the screen. Its native resolution of 1280x800 makes it more compatible with wide screen users. It's light output was bright enough for just about any environment you could present in.
Small size makes it uniquely appropriate among interactive ultra short throw projectors for portable use
Although the iPJ-AW250N loses some points for not being suitable for interactive table-top applications, that's not an issue if you're sure you'll never want to use it that way. On the other hand, its small size makes it uniquely appropriate among interactive ultra short throw projectors for portable use, even with the need for calibration.
