Panasonic PT-AE700U LCD Projector Review

 

The PT-AE700U offers great features, great color, good details, hi-def capabilities and ease of use - all for a fantastic price. When I compared this projector to some of the other high-end projectors I've seen, mostly DLP, the PT-AE700U doesn't quite...

Panasonic PT-AE700U LCD Projector

 

We've reviewed several Panasonic projectors in the past few years. Their price ranges have varied slightly, but two things have remained constant: a decent picture and an ugly box.

Summing up the PT-AE700U is pretty easy. It is a bright projector for the color accuracy it provides (always a bonus), with deinterlacing that won't require a progressive-scan DVD player. Its black level isn't great (typical of LCD projectors), but it...

Panasonic PT-AE700U LCD projector

 

Now Panasonic has followed up with the PT-AE700U, and it's more than just an upgrade of the PT-AE500U. The '700 has some new bells and whistles of its own, including a longer-throw projection lens, auto iris for deeper blacks, and an optical system...

Panasonic PT-AE700U

 

A year ago, Sanyo and Panasonic slugged it out with their popular Z2 and L500u, both selling for around $2000. As I write this (10/04), it looks like we have a rematch, with Sanyo's forthcoming Z3 and this new Panasonic AE700U. Since these new...

and Con's ; Wow! For $2000 and change this is one excellent projector. I am most impressed by the dramatic improvement over the older L500u (AE500u). I still see some of the older model still advertised for a few hundred less, but this is a huge...

Noise in the picture (it is controllable with the noise reduction menu option) ; Vertical banding - not a good thing but rarely annoying ; Colors seem off a bit without calibration, in many of the color modes ; Warranty only 1 year (2 year additional...

The Panasonic AE700u is a great, affordable projector in the 1280x720 resolution class, and should certainly be near the top of your shopping list. As you look below, you will note there are some serious issues under "Con's" but they are mostly, easily...

Panasonic's PT-AE700E LCD projector has more tricks up its sleeve than $3899 should rightly buy. Successor to the highly regarded PT-AE500, the PT-AE7...

Joystick control, quiet, brilliant picture

A little large

A wonderful projector that packs together some of the best qualities of DLP and LCD technology, for under $4000. What more could you ask for?

Panasonic PT-AE700 review

 

Considering how successful, cutting-edge and influential it is, it's amazing that Panasonic's winning formula for its PT-AE range of projectors hasn't been copied by more rival brands

Comrehensive connections ; Great Cinema Colour Management system ; Pleasingly quiet ; Intuitive and easy-to-use menus

Panasonic PT-AE700E

 

For image quality, ease of set-up and its HD widescreen capabilities, this projector leaves many of its more fancied and more expensive competitors for dead.

Sharp, realistic picture ; HDMI input ; easy set up

HDMI cables are extra ; vertical keystone correction only ; no carry case

All up, we couldn't find much to complain about with the Panasonic PT-AE700E. There are certainly cheaper home cinema projectors on the market, but for its image quality, ease of set-up and HD widescreen capabilities, this projector leaves many of its...

Product Specifications

The PT-AE700U is the most impressive home cinema projector ever from Panasonic. Compact enough to sit on a bookshelf, it is packed with advanced features designed to bring you a whole new level of home theater enjoyment. Dynamic contrast is now 2000: 1, by far the best in its class, so the picture is sharp and clear even in a well-lit room. New integrated cinema quality circuitry includes a Dynamic Iris optical system that constantly adjusts the brightness and gamma characteristics in real time, so the picture is always optimal and transitions betweens scenes are more natural. An innovative color correction system - developed after consultation with top Hollywood colorist David Bernstein 1 - incorporates Cinema Color Management technology to ensure faithful color reproduction. This cinema-quality integrated circuitry brings you on-screen colors just as you would see them in a movie theater. And the PT-AE700U comes with advanced Smooth Screen technology that effectively eliminates the typical "screen door" effect, so the images you see on the screen are natural and lifelike.
