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
