Panasonic PT-AX100U

 

The Panasonic PT-AX100U is a near perfect addition to Panasonic's long and storied line of excellent High Definition 3-chip LCD home theater projectors.

The Panasonic PT-AX100U's $2,999 price tag is a bit hefty (much like the projector itself) but its "street price" is appreciably lower, so it still offers excellent value for an HD-compatible (720p) LCD projector. Older models of the Panasonic had a...

Panasonic PT-AX100U

 

On the right side (we're back to viewing the projector from the front) is the air intake for the PT-AX100U projector

Extremely bright, great for Sports and TV/HDTV, as well as movies, and can forgive low levels of ambient light when movie watching ; Excellent room placement flexibility due to 2:1 zoom and large lens shift ; Good out of the box color- though it can...

Some unevenness in illumination, with a slight shift from red to blue (left side of screen to right). Note, the review unit was just barely pre-production (according to Panasonic) ; Only 3 user saveable settings ; Warranty ; Changing lamp requires...

With the overall quality and performance of the PT-AX100U, combined with Panasonic's wide distribution, I have no trouble believing that this new Panasonic home theater projector will replace the older projector as the best selling home theater...

Highly Rated!

Fantastic picture

 

This is my first front projector and I must say that I'm blown away. I built my own 120" screen out of Wilson Art Laminate (Designer White) and the picture is outstanding. I found that I didn't even have to play around with the controls (contrast,...

Quiet, good inputs, excellent picture, lots of control

Image could be a little sharper, but this is minor
