Panasonic PT-AX200U 720p LCD Projector


At $1,699 street price - which includes a screen, ceiling mount, and cable - and if you are on a budget but want a very nice projector, here is one to consider. It looks fine out of the box, but I think all consumers should get some sort of calibration...

Panasonic PT-AX200U LCD Projector Review


The budget-priced 720p PT-AX200U projector has several new features of Panasonic's incremental but impressive projector update – not the least of which involved a tantalizing gaming-centric mode which decreases lag and speeds up gameplay.

No screen door effect ; Excellent contrast ; Game mode for fast response and more visible shadow detail ; Great "out of the box" colors ; Backlit remote ; Light Harmonizer 2 automatic picture adjustment ; 1080p/24/60 support

Potential HDCP compatibility issues ; Non-standard power cable ; No 12V trigger

Panasonic PT-AX200U


Every year I have to listen to Panasonic remind me that the model they are replacing has been the best selling home theater projector in the market. Every year, they proclaim that they expect the newly released Panasonic home theater projector to...

Brightest home theater projector around, over 2000 lumens at brightest ; Very bright in best movie mode, as well ; Very good at revealing shadow details ; Significantly lower starting price ($1299) than its predecessor, the PT-AX100U ; Vertical and...

A slightly soft image (sharpness) ; Needs minor color adjustments, out of the box ; Black levels could be a bit better ; Warranty is only 1 year parts and labor ; Although quieter than average, not as quiet as the quietest LCD projectors in its class

Perfectionists may choose another projector in the general price range, especially those focused heavily on black level performance, but for the rest of us, the PT-AX200U, is going to be a serious contender. Of course, a number of competitors cost...

Great colour reproduction, impressively clean image quality

Heavy and bulky, only 720p

Panasonic's PT-AX200E projector is great for both viewing data and movies thanks to impressive image quality and unaltered colour reproduction, but lacks Full HD output.
