Panasonic PT-AX100 review

 

Panasonic provides both price and performance to please

Good range of features ; Modest price tag

Hi-def images are less impressive

The PT-AX100 offers far more flexibility and performance than you've any right to even dream of for a low price

Panasonic PT-AX100E review

 

Panasonic's PT-AX100E projector will happily digest any HD fodder you throw at it. But is it a worthy flatscreen replacement?

It may not be a headline-grabber but its sharp, colourful picture and ease of use make this projector a star performer

Panasonic PT-AX100E

 

Panasonic's PT-AX100E is another 3LCD projection design that has been shaming its DLP rivals with a performance that can claim to be class-leading at this price. The off-white design appears ordinary but allows the machine to disappear into its...

Flexible design; advanced technology; simplistic set up; peerless picture quality

No vertical keystone correction

For those true fans of home cinema, a Hi-Def Projector will be an essential piece of hardware. Macworld took a look at six contenders.

Panasonic PT-AX100U Projector Review

 

The PT-AX100U offers some updates to what was quite possibly the best-selling product of 2006. With smooth screen technology and a powerful lens shift, form meets function in this low cost

ZERO screen door effect from real viewing distances ; Excellent contrast with deep, rich colors ; Consumer adjustment of RGB gain, cut and gamma ; Backlit remote ; Light Harmonizer" dynamic picture adjustment ; 1080p/24/60 support

IR sensor on front only ; Non-standard power cable ; No 12V trigger

Panasonic PT-AX100E

 

The PT-AX100E is similar to Panasonic's award winning PT-AE900 -- it keeps all the excellent visuals, but this time it's twice as bright. An excellent projector for the money.

Excellent picture regardless of source ; High brightness ; Sophisticated, yet simple, menu system ; Manual lens shift and zoom

Limited setup options ; No learning remote ; Larger than competitors

Conclusion The Panasonic PT-AE900 scored an Editors' Choice Award when it was reviewed late last year, and though very similar, the PT-AX100E is just as worthwhile -- particularly if you don't already own that model. The price is the same and video...

Panasonic PT-AX100E

 

Another year has rolled past and it is that time again when the good folk at Panasonic unveil another "cheap as chips" home theatre projector. Although Panasonic now seem old hands at the home theatre projector scene, it has only been about five years...

Often these "facts and figures" are little more than marketing hype. However the real life performance of the AX100E certainly feels close to what they have stated. Previously you could have either high lumen (light) output at the cost of contrast...

Panasonic PT-AX100U

 

The Panasonic PT-AX100U is a near perfect addition to Panasonic's long and storied line of excellent High Definition 3-chip LCD home theater projectors.

The Panasonic PT-AX100U's $2,999 price tag is a bit hefty (much like the projector itself) but its "street price" is appreciably lower, so it still offers excellent value for an HD-compatible (720p) LCD projector. Older models of the Panasonic had a...

Product Specifications

The PT-AX100 not only provides superb viewing of movies in a dark room, it meets the needs of users who want to watch sports events in a bright living room. This bright-room viewing capability is achieved by the combination of a redesigned optical unit that delivers 2, 000-lumen brightness and Panasonic's Light Harmonizer, a technology that senses and responds to the immediate surroundings. The Light Harmonizer automatically adjusts image quality to room lighting conditions, so that images are clear, bright and easy to see even in a well-lit room. The PT-AX100 also incorporates a Pure Color Filter developed by Panasonic specifically to improve color production accuracy in movies. This refined Hollywood picture quality makes the PT-AX100 an ideal projector to serve as the heart of a home cinema system. In addition to its many advanced imaging technologies, the PT-AX100 features a 2x optical zoom lens and lens shift function. These features, which earned high acclaim in the earlier PT-AE900 projector, give the PT-AX100 outstanding installation flexibility. Users can place the PT-AX100 just about anywhere and enjoy beautiful large-screen images in rooms big or small. Ideal for everything from watching sports events on a sunny weekend afternoon to enjoying full-fledged home cinema entertainment at night, the PT-AX100 is an LCD projector that meets virtually everyone's viewing needs.
