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...

Warranty is meaningless

 

I had a good experience with the PT-AE3000U projector for about 15 months as the picture was good. After 1800 hours of time on the original lamp, I purchased a replacement lamp March 2010 from MWave.com and it failed 2 months later after only 225...

Good projector while it lasts

Replacement lamps are garbage ; Panasonic does not honor warranties

Customer Service Disaster and Poor Product Quality

 

I don?t usually write reviews, but I strongly felt this is worth informing as many people as possible. I read all the reviews on the Panasonic PT-AX200U projector and they all looked good, so I bought one. For me, I wanted the best possible resolution...

It was very nice picture quality while it worked and the lens tilt was a good feature

The product broke after almost no use and customer service at Panasonic is impossibly difficult, to the point that I will never buy another Panasonic product
