Panasonic PT-AE3000 review

 

A full HD LCD projector that pays dividends if you optimise it

Decent contrast and black levels ; Vivid colour reproduction ; Runs very quietly

Won't accept 480/576i via HDMI ; No screen triggering

An undeniably flexible projector, but for the best pictures tweaking is required

Panasonic PT-AE3000 review

 

It might have humdrum looks, but under this 1080p Panasonic projector's dour exterior lies a real party animal

Simple to use and with superb results – a hugely persuasive argument for taking the big-screen plunge

Panasonic PT-AE3000E review

 

If you're serious about home cinema, projectors don't come much better than this. The PT-AE3000E is Panasonic's new flagship model. It has a 1,920x1,080 resolution and a brightness of 1,600 lumens.

With excellent image quality, low noise and the ability to play games, the PT-AE3000E won't disappoint.

Panasonic PT-AE3000 review

 

The Panasonic PT-AE3000 might look unappealing, but performs like a winner in our eyes

Superb set-up procedure ; full HD spec with three HDMI inputs ; colourful, natural and detailed video ; smooth motion ; quiet operation

Uninspiring looks

Simple to use and with superb results – a hugely persuasive argument for taking the big-screen plunge

Panasonic PT-AE3000 projector

 

These days, LCD-based projectors are usually to be found only at the budget end of the market, but Panasonic has different ideas with the PT-AE3000. Coming in at more than two grand, this is a resolutely high-end unit, with a hefty 7.3kg frame to...

Panasonic PT-AE3000 LCD Projector Review

 

How can you watch scope films without the black bars and not use an anamorphic lens? Panasonic may have the answer.

From my initial viewing of the PT-AE3000 all those months ago at Panasonic HQ I knew it had raised its game. However, it’s not until you get it in the perfect surrounding of our test room that it truly pushes the right buttons. If I was in this end of...

This one’s a Soldier, we have no issues with the performance, and in fact find it quite exemplary in terms of brightness and contrast. Colors are also superb but they can overwhelm if not checked in the menu. The slight iffy is actually the price - Rs...

Panasonic PT-AE3000E

 

Let's cut to the chase: the Panasonic PT-AE3000E is one of the most accomplished home-theatre projectors we've laid eyes on. Like the best models on t...

Superb image quality, lots of useful and innovative features, vastly improved contrast ratio (compared to PT-AE2000U)

There are cheaper (albeit inferior) HD home-theatre projectors on the market

The PT-AE3000E is easily one of the best home-theatre projectors we've ever had the pleasure of testing. Short of a built-in Blu-ray player and drink dispenser it provides everything the average videophile could possibly want.
