Panasonic Pt-Ar100U Lcd Projector Review


Panasonic PT-AR100U LCD Projector – 1080p – HDTV – 16:9 PTAR100U Projectors

I have been looking at home theater projectors for over ten years. In that time I have looked at everything from Sharpvision to Barco to Epson and Sony. Each time I would visit a home theater showroom and view a projector’s image in a controlled light environment, I would decide that the image quality and brightness were not quite impressive enough. I was just could not bring myself to spend thousands for something that was a bit dissapointing. But lately, I took a look at the Panasonic PT-AR100U and the older Epson 8700UB, as well as the new Epsons, 3010/5010 series. All of these projectors have high-quality bright images. Then I saw that the Panasonic PT-AR100U’s price dropped from $1999.00 to around $1000.00. I also saw that Panasonic also offered a $299.00 rebate. For $699.00, I am very satisfied. I am also projecting the PT-AR100U on a Favi 150″ motorized screen (also a great quality product for the money). The projected image is really bright and vibrant with great contrast. Color accuracy and flesh tones are very acceptable right out of the box. Lens shift, zoom and keystone correction line the projected image up perfectly. The black levels are not quite as good as the Epson projectors, but it was not a deal breaker. Overall, a feature film on Bluray viewed on the PT-AR100U is quite impressive. There are certainly home theater projectors which certainly achieve higher image quality, but you would be spending thousands more. If you are looking for an excellent quality projector at an affordable price, I belive you would be very satisfied with the PT-AR100U.
