Panasonic PT-AE7000U projector review

Our Projector Expert Rich was able to take home the Panasonic PT-AE7000U projector last weekend. Lucky!

His “homework” was to watch movies and sports on the projector and write a review. Check it out below:

“I just took the new Panasonic PT-AE7000U home over the weekend for a test run. I have to say there isn’t anything I DON’T like about this projector. It’s bright, has great color and black levels, and looks sharper than any LCD projector I have seen. We watched the new Harry Potter movie which has a lot of dark scenes. The AE7000U handled them very well, even in the Normal mode. The blacks would be even deeper in Cinema mode but I liked the brightness of the Normal settings.”

“I put in the last Pirates of the Caribbean Blu-ray movie (talk about milking a franchise) and you could really see the crisp sharpness on the Panasonic PT-AE7000U projector. It was razor sharp!”

“Of course I also had to watch some football on it and the colors and smooth frame rate looked amazing (I wish my teams looked that good!) I even captured the classic “Tebowing” pose for those Gators-turned-Broncos fans out there.”

“And don’t forget the 3D on this unit! 2D to 3D conversion looked good. You can tell it’s not true 3D, but it added depth to the image. The 3D from a 3D Blu-ray was outstanding! The images are bright and colorful even with the glasses on. We watched some of Avatar and it looked actually better than in the theaters. Even things like smoke and dust particles seem to float in the room.”

“Other things I like about the AE7000 is the power lens, lens shift and three HDMI inputs. This projector is also very quiet. All in all just a great projector. Can I keep it? Please!”
