    Not to the standard you have come to expect from InFocus, February 8, 2012

    I have used InFocus projectors for the last 10 years. All projectors I have had were 5 stars. When recently I needed to replace one to upgrade to a higher resolution, I naturally chose InFocus again.

    This projector is quiet and bright (although the fan gets louder after about 15 minutes of use). Images are sharp all the way to the corners and it is lightweight and it is not expensive.

    But it is nowhere near the quality I have come to enjoy from InFocus over the years. The projector comes without a bag. Neither is there a lens cap. Leg adjustment is adquate, but the quick adjustments from the previous versions of their projectors is not available on this model. The image on the screen is small, you need to go a great distance before you fill a decent sized screen. Zoom range is a joke (you can add about 2 or 3 inches to the size of the image at 4 metres). The remote control doesn’t control your laptop or PC, like it did with all my previous InFocus projectors.

    So unfortunately I am not impressed. I’d much rather have payed another $150 for it to have had a bag, wider angle lens, good zoom range, lens cap, bag and USB conenction for remote control of laptop.

    It is bright, has many adjustments for screen size and at 1024×768 res, a blu ray disc looked incredible on a 11 ft wide screen(outdoors). Just a reminder, to hook my Blu ray player to it, I had to purchase an rgb to vga adaptor.

    Impressive! Panasonic PT-AE8000U vs. the Epson 5020UB – Draw?, March 7, 2013

    This review is from: Panasonic PT-AE8000U Full HD 3D Home Theater Projector + 2 Pairs of Xpand 3D Glasses (Electronics)

    In response to some of the interesting customer comments on the Panasonic PT-AE8000U Projector, please consider a few things such as the lighting in your viewing environment, the correct calibration, and of course a very reputable review attached here from ProjectorCentral.com, comparing the Panasonic PT-AE8000U vs. the Epson 5020UB, where it seems to come down to personal taste. Visit: “projectorcentral.com/epson_5020_vs_panasonic_ae8000″
    By the way, in response to David Freeman… I’ve been extremely pleased with the “Peerless PRGUNV Precision Gear Universal Projector Mount – Black” (~$90) for normal ceiling mount.

    From ProjectorCentral.com (November 7, 2012):
    The most obvious competition in home theater this year is between the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5020UB / 5020UBe and the Panasonic PT-AE8000, another sub-$3000 1080p 3D LCD projector released this year. With similar specifications and features at a similar price point, the two are going to go head-to-head for the attention and dollars of many home theater consumers this year. Below are the most important differences between the two.

    Shootout Comparison
    2D Image quality. (DRAW) Our comparison uses the AE8000’s Cinema 2 mode and the 5020UBe’s Cinema mode, which are (a) very similar and (b) the best images that the projectors can produce for home theater use. The 5020UBe has a slight black level advantage over the AE8000. Both projectors have sufficient brightness, excellent color, and razor-sharp pictures. It is becoming more and more difficult to make a distinction between two projectors, especially two projectors exhibiting this high level of polish. We’re ready to call this a draw.

    3D Image quality. (Panasonic) As 3D is newer and less established than 2D, there are still some important differences in these two projectors’ 3D images. The AE8000 has a number of interesting features such as 3D Depth Control and 3D Motion Remaster that make it easier to watch 3D comfortably, and Frame Creation is available in 3D on the AE8000. The 5020UBe does not have these features and 3D Frame Interpolation is not available. On the other hand, the 5020UBe has radio-frequency synchronized glasses, while the AE8000 uses infrared. RF glasses are less prone to interference and losing synchronization than their IR counterparts. The AE8000’s glasses have a 3D-to-2D function, which is a nice touch if you want to watch in 3D but someone else in your household prefers 2D. Neither projector needs an outboard signal emitter. Both projectors do an outstanding job of controlling crosstalk, but we were more likely to see slight crosstalk on the 5020UBe than on the AE8000.

    Light output. (DRAW) While there was a light output difference between the AE7000 and 5010, that difference has been eliminated in these new models. In Dynamic mode, the AE8000 measures 2471 lumens; the 5020UBe measures 2432 lumens. Living Room mode on the 5020UBe measures 1725 lumens after calibration while Cinema 2 mode on the AE8000 measures 1612 lumens. Cinema 1 mode on the AE8000 measures 822 lumens to the 5020UBe’s 914 lumens in Cinema mode. These differences — all under 150 lumens — are near invisible to the human eye. They are functionally irrelevant.

    Contrast. (DRAW Epson) We’ve come to the point where you can safely ignore contrast differences on spec sheets. The 5020UBe is rated at 320,000:1 on/off contrast, while the AE8000 is rated at 500,000:1. However, the 5020UBe has a more aggressive auto iris. The difference boils down to a small black level advantage for the 5020UBe in most scenes. Both projectors maintain shadow detail exceptionally well.

    Color. (DRAW) Neither projector is perfect out of the box, but both of them calibrate very well. This is a tie.

    Sharpness and clarity. (DRAW Epson) The AE8000 and 5020UBe both have smart sharpening systems (the AE8000’s is called Detail Clarity instead of Super Resolution) but Super Resolution on the 5020UBe seems more aggressive than Detail Clarity on the AE8000. That could be good or bad, depending on how much you enjoy the effect.

    Frame Interpolation. (Panasonic) Both FI systems have three settings, but the AE8000 has an edge in maintaining the film-like character of the picture on its lowest setting. Even on the 5020UBe’s Low setting, there is still a touch of the digital video effect that one can see. The AE8000’s FI system is also available in 3D.

    Placement Flexibility. (Epson?) Both projectors feature extensive zoom range and lens shift. The 5020UBe has an incrementally larger shift range while the AE8000 has powered zoom and focus. While both projectors can be focused to razor-sharp clarity, the powered focus helps to get your focus adjustments done quickly. On the other hand, the larger shift range of the 5020UBe makes it easier to mount.

    2.4x Cinemascope compatibility. (Panasonic) The AE8000 has an anamorphic stretch…

    Awesome projector if you like misery., November 7, 2013

    This review is from: Panasonic PT-AE8000U Full HD 3D Home Theater Projector + 2 Pairs of Xpand 3D Glasses (Electronics)
    This projector is awesome but it’s going to break and when it does, you’re going to experience Hell firsthand. Sent mine in for a bad HDMI board repair. It’s been a month, I STILL don’t have a working projector. They beat the daylights out of it, put 60 extra hours on it, scratched the crap out of the IR and Lens covers, unplugged it with the main power switch on re-nuking the HDMI board, shipped it with the lens unsecured and packed it like it was frozen fish rather than a $3000 projector. John McConkey at Panasonic’s customer service center is a real jerk to boot; he’s curt, condescending and promises things he can’t deliver. The whole fiasco was so bad he and another rep both said they’d be sending a new unit to replace the one destroyed by the service center. INSTEAD they re-re-repaired it, replaced the scratched components and are sending it back with an extra lamp to offset the life lost being repeatedly hammered in UPS planes, trucks and sorting centers. Instead of admitting they blew it and make it right, they’ve wasted a month of my life (and I STILL don’t have a projector back yet), an untold fortune in parts, shipping and labor only to return my AE8000U in worse condition than I gave it. Buy the Epson. Buy the Epson. Buy the Epson.

    I love Panasonic’s product but after dealing with their warranty service for a month I’d compare the experience to dating a supermodel with syphilis. It starts out seeming like a dream come true but ends up being the biggest mistake of your life.

    I took 3 months debating between the Panasonic PT-AE8000U and the Epson. This is a great projector. Mine sits 16′ from the screen and the picture is crystal clear. I’m now waiting for my WOW disc to calibrate.
