11 Reasons For

Excellent Expert Reviews

Expert review website hometheaterreview.com scored this multimedia projector 90%.

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Data Projectors

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

Good 3D Picture Quality

One person who bought the product reckoned that it had a good 3D picture quality. Hometheaterreview.com said “It uses active 3D technology, with a builtin IR emitter” in their review of this projector.

Easy to Use

One person concluded that it was easy to use. Hometheaterreview.com gave it a score of 5 stars and mentioned “Panasonic has opted to use IR instead of RF for its sync emitter”.

Supports Full HD Projection

The PTAE7000U supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type which do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], the Panasonic PT-RZ470[plb_1844617_price], or the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub[plb_2301495_price].

Supports 3D Image Projection

The PTAE7000U supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PTAE7000U.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to look at including the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], the Panasonic PT-RZ470[plb_1844617_price], or the Optoma W311[plb_3054527_price] which has better reviews.

This projector has a native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is typical of many projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Three Component Video in Ports

The PTAE7000U has more component video in ports than most of the projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PTAE7000U. Most of the comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PTAE7000U only have between one and two component video in ports, however this Panasonic projector has three component video in ports.

Chart Edit

Three HDMI Ports

The PTAE7000U is a three HDMI port data projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on data projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

At only 22 decibels, the PTAE7000U has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PTAE7000U. The average noise level of projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PTAE7000U is 32dB, and the noise levels range from 20dB to 47dB.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 22dB noise level data projectors and we think the VPL-HW30ES[pl_1576440_price], and the VPL-VW1000ES[pl_1610583_price] both from Sony or the Panasonic PT-AT6000E[plb_1803042_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The PTAE7000U does not have a built-in speaker, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the PTAE7000U also do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the W311[pl_3054527_price], or the HD25[pl_1883129_price] both from Optoma which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Panasonic PTAE7000U has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PTAE7000U. The dimmest projector brightness of projectors of this spec and age is 300 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 9,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,900 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the 5020UB[pl_1992731_price] (2,400 ANSI lumens), or the PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub[pl_2301495_price] (2,400 ANSI lumens) both from Epson or the Optoma HD50[plb_2578841_price] (2,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
