Panasonic PT-AE4000 review

 

Panasonic builds on its superb LCD projector line with a new red-rich lamp

Easy to set up and operate ; Wide zoom and optical lens shift range ; Lush colours ; Smooth, filmic picture ; Useful features

Boxy design ; Some forward firing fan noise ; Take care with the high frame-rate settings

An impressive projector that has a simple setup and great pictures

Panasonic PT-AE4000 LCD Projector

 

The Panasonic PT-AE4000 projector is a unique, almost crazily flexible and hugely tantalising product for its price point.

Although the AE4000 still has room for improvement and leaves Epson plenty of wiggle room to justify charging significantly more for its TW5500 flagship LCD projector, Panasonic has undoubtedly delivered some really key improvements over the AE3000.

Panasonic PT-AE4000E review

 

Still a top performer and living room friendly, but loses a star on price - it's stayed the same while others have cut prices

Great HD spec ; easy set-up ; punchy, bright colours ; fine insight

A little noise at times ; not the contrast reach of best

Still great, but rivals leave the AE4000E wanting in certain areas

Panasonic PT-AE4000E review

 

Panasonic's PT-AE4000E is the successor to the Ultimate award-winning PT-AE3000E. It's just as good as you'd hope a projector this expensive to be. It has three HDMI inputs, as well as component, composite, S-Video and VGA, so you're unlikely to run...

Stunning image quality make this one of the best projectors you can get. Simply put, if you can afford it, buy it.

Stunning image quality make this one of the best projectors you can get. Simply put, if you can afford it, buy it.

At this price, the PT-AE4000E is one for serious home cinema enthusiasts but its phenomenal image quality and range of controls make this an ideal choice if you can afford it. We've given it our Ultimate award.

The Panasonic PT-AE4000 displays 1080p full high definition video, and features a 'Pure Colour' filter to deliver some of the deepest blacks possible on a home projector. It has a contrast ratio of 100000:1, a quiet fan noise of 22 decibels and 3 HDMI...

Panasonic PT-AE4000 3LCD Projector

 

I have said it with the previous Panasonic projectors and I'm yet again forced to say it this year. This is an ugly looking brick of a chassis. The black box with sharp corners and square lines has been with us for 4 years now, and this year's model is...

Panasonic PT-AE4000 LCD Projector Review

 

Panasonic's new PT-AE4000 projector looks the same as last years model, but is the performance?

Good black levels ; Good dynamic range ; Excellent lens memory function ; Excellent greyscale and colour performance out of the box in Colour 1 preset ; Reference level colour and greyscale results when professionally calibrated ; Good range of...

CMS system needs to be redesigned do you are not forced to use a workaround when professionally calibrating ; Lens Function control needs to be on the remote control, a 16:9 and 2.35:1 button please ; Lens shift controls are a little weak, these should...

Panasonic PT-AE4000E

 

The AE4000 doesn't improve quite as much as we'd like over last year's equivalent Panasonic model, but it's easily the most flexible projector in its class. We still couldn't get totally perfect pictures out of it despite that, but it's nonetheless a...

Good picture quality ; Excellent connectivity ; Exceptional array of set-up aids ; Built-in aspect-ratio adjustment ; Good motion handling

Some features too complex for mainstream users ; Picture looks rather dark when optimised for black colour reproduction ; Slightly soft HD images
