Panasonic PT-AE8000U Home Theater Projector Review

Panasonic PT-AE8000 Projector: Pros and Cons

Panasonic PT-AE8000 Projector: Pros

  • A very bright “brightest” mode, – A light canon with over 2000 usable lumens, six hundred calibrated
  • Very clean 3D, three brightness settings
  • 3D glasses exceptionally light, very comfortable
  • Truly outstanding placement flexibility
  • Lens Memory – for using widescreens without an anamorphic lens (a real plus for some)
  • CFI – smooth motion, one of the smoothest/best, many may even use for movie viewing, who would not engage most others for same
  • Calibrates very nicely, though not the absolute most natural color
  • 3 HDMI 1.4a (Blu-ray 3D compatible) inputs
  • 480hz panels for faster response time, including gaming
  • Nice remote control
  • CFI and Dynamic iris both function in 3D!
  • Works with 3rd party glasses, as well as some brands like Epson and some Optoma
  • Excellent Lamp Life (4000/5000 hours)
  • Very quiet operation, even at full power
  • Extensive, and well laid out menus
  • Dark finish, which is ideal for most home theaters
  • Waveform monitor and split screen adjustments for the enthusiast/tweaker
  • An excellent value – it simply does more of most things, for less than most of the competition

Panasonic PT-AE8000 Projector: Cons

  • Short warranty – 2 year Parts/labor, but only 2000 hours maximum on the warranty. Definitely less warranty than most competitors
  • Lamp brightness control hard to find on menu
  • Good black levels for the price range (for 2D/3D projectors) but still could be improved significantly, to be fully competitive
  • Not quite as sharp as some
  • Detail enhancement not as effective as some
