LCD projectors are known for having more visible pixel structures, requiring you to sit further back than with a DLP projector. Last year's PT-AE900U sported what Panasonic named "Smooth Screen" LCD panels. Pixel visibility was no more noticeable that DLP projectors, but the image appeared a bit soft. The PT-AX100U, by comparison, has new panels, and the pixels are far less visible than DLP projectors, and yet the image of the AX-100U is definitely sharper than the older Panny. More on this in the General Performance section.
