Panasonic PT-AR100U - Overall Color & Picture Quality 3

Panasonic PT-AR100U Projector: Bottom Line on HDTV Sports, and also 3D HDTV content

Wow!  If good brightness - horsepower - is the basic minimum requirement of enjoying sports... That is, not having to watch it in a darkened cave, instead, bright enough so you can see your buddies... then the Panasonic is the brightest and probably the best choice out there for the price, from that standpoint.

Of course the Panasonic lacks the creative frame interpolation found on more expensive projectors. However, I can only really think of one or two under $2,000 projectors, that currently offer CFI for smooth motion.

When you're choosing between the PT-AR100U projector and others near its price, none of them offer that nice optional feature (CFI - smooth motion).

As part of this review, I’ve taken pictures of the Panasonic projector with more ambient light hitting my screen than I have attempted with any other projectors since we moved to this place a year and a half ago.

And note, while our calibrated REC 709 “best” mode is fairly washed out on those images with the most ambient light, even with that massive amount of ambient light, the brighter modes had no real problem, you still have a very watchable image.  So enjoy it.

Impressive, yes?
