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...

Shoot-out: Panasonic PT-AX100U vs. Sanyo PLV-Z5


It's October again. And regular as clockwork, the Harvest moon rises, the fall colors turn, the Yankees lose in the playoffs, and the home theater industry sees an all-new clash of the LCD titans, Panasonic and Sanyo.

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...

Review: Panasonic PT-AX100U


The Panasonic PT-AX100U is the seventh model in a line of low-cost widescreen LCD home theater projector to come from Panasonic's laboratories in under five years. Starting with the original AE100, an 854x484 projector released in January, 2002, the...

The Panasonic AX100U is the closest thing to a truly universal home theater projector we have yet seen. Its 2.0x zoom range and lens shift capabilities make it easy to place almost anywhere in the room you might want it. And its exceptional lumen...

Panasonic PT-AX100 review


Panasonic provides both price and performance to please

Good range of features ; Modest price tag

Hi-def images are less impressive

The PT-AX100 offers far more flexibility and performance than you've any right to even dream of for a low price

Panasonic PT-AX100E review


We have a confession to make. When Panasonic released this low-cost PT-AX100E alongside the swankier PT-AE100E it was completely neglected in the rush to throw every HD source we could find at its 1080p-loving big brother. No 1080p, no problem But...

Panasonic's PT-AX100E projector will happily digest any HD fodder you throw at it. But is it a worthy flatscreen replacement?

It may not be a headline-grabber but its sharp, colourful picture and ease of use make this projector a star performer
