Panasonic PT-AE2000E


The Panasonic PT-AE2000 1080p projector is a credible performer, especially when you consider its excellent shadow details

Produces a deep level of black, Horizontal and vertical lens shift, Superb connectivity including 3 HDMI inputs

Inaccurate red and green, Not bright enough to drive very large screens

Panasonic PT-AE2000U 1080P 3-Chip LCD Front Projector Reviewed


Panasonic, makers of some of the finest HDTV the world has ever seen, has also been making top quality projectors for home theater enthusiasts on a budget for some time now and their latest, the PT-AE2000U, may be their best projector yet. ...

Full 1920 x 1080P HD three-chip LCD light engine offers very nearly full resolution of high definition sources ; Good black level is achieved, thanks to the new dynamic auto iris ; XYZ (xvYCC) color space compatibility on HDMI, along with HDTV Rec. 709...

Color Setting 1 is the only color space that does not over saturate and distort the presentation ; Black level is only acceptable, not fantastic, and does not compete with other more expensive projectors ; Slightly noisy fans can be heard if the unit...

Half a decade ago, Panasonic could only be found to offer 720P front and rear projectors. But then, a few years ago, there appeared their first foray into full 1080P HD, the PT-A1000U, and it turned people's heads for both it's performance improvements...

Panasonic PT-AE2000 Projector


Brawny best describes the Panasonic's no-nonsense cosmetics, with sharp raked accents and louvered ventilation slots flanking the lens. The prominent lens sits front and center and features motorized zoom and focus, with two different test patterns for...

Although the Panasonic’s 165-watt bulb is only 15 watts more powerful than other projectors in its class, it manages to put out substantially more light than the average projector, which allows for very large screen sizes (I calculate that it can...

Expert review by : Scott Wilkinson ( Panasonic PT-AE2000U LCD Projector


When you think of Panasonic video displays, you probably think of plasmas, and rightly so-it makes some of the best in the business. But the company also has a relatively long tradition of making LCD projectors. The PT-AE2000U is Panasonic's latest...

Gorgeous colors, Smooth, film-like picture, Good blacks, Excellent shadow detail, Extensive controls, Great menu

Image lacks sharpness of other projectors, Moving objects lose lots of detail, Relatively low light output

I don't normally like dynamic irises because I usually see their effect in pumping black levels, but the PT-AE2000U had no such problem-in fact, I preferred the picture with the dynamic iris engaged, which lowered the black level and raised the peak...

Panasonic PT-AE2000U LCD Projector


Panasonic has been making pro video projectors for years, but its first home theater projector to catch my eye was the PT-AE700U. Both that model and its follow-up, the PT-AE900U, were competent 720p LCD designs in deceptively small, businesslike black...

The Cinema Color Management system isn't new; it was available in the company's earlier projectors. It lets you adjust color, tint, and (color) brightness at up to eight points in the image, then save those settings in one of three available profile...

Panasonic PT-AE2000U Projector


With its rich, sharp image, the Panasonic's PT-AE2000U 1080p home theater projector has our resident Sanyo-lover considering adultery.

Sanyo, I never meant to hurt you. A man can love two projectors, right- But seriously folks, the key point here is that we have entered the age of outstanding, affordable 1080p home theater projectors. I'm pleased that I was able to do a head-to-head...

Panasonic PT-AE2000U Update


Typically those pre-production projectors are built a couple of months before full production begins. With most home theater projectors having a model life of about 12 months, a lot of fix'in can be done in that time between samples and final...
