9 Reasons For

Owner Reviews Are Excellent

Based on 37 owner reviews this multimedia projector has a brilliant average owner rating.

Panasonic Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Projectors built by Panasonic have excellent ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just projectors) and found that Panasonic also has excellent ratings across its entire range.

Supports Full HD Projection

The PT-AE8000U supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-AE8000U which do not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the HD30[pl_1915718_price], or the HD50[pl_2578841_price] both from Optoma.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Viewsonic Pro9000[plb_1517329_price] is also worth considering.
