9 Reasons For

Excellent User Reviews

On average, based on 38 user reviews this Panasonic projector has a superb overall user rating.

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Data Projectors

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

Supports Full HD

The PT-AE8000U supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec do not support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available including the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Epson 5020UB[plb_1992731_price] which has better reviews.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other data projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-AE8000U, the PT-AE8000U supports 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price] which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

This multimedia projector has a projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is the most commonly found projector native resolution on data projectors that have been available for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Matrix Size

At 0.74 inches, the PT-AE8000U has a fairly big matrix size compared to most of the other data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PT-AE8000U. The average matrix size of similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 0.63".

Chart Edit

Three Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) Ins

The Panasonic PT-AE8000U is a three component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in projector.

Chart Edit

Three HDMI Ports Quantitys

The PT-AE8000U is a three HDMI ports quantity projector. Most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-AE8000U have between one and three HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Panasonic PT-AE8000U does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Benq SX914[plb_1999632_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PT-AE8000U does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other data projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Slow Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

The slowest dot clock scanning frequency of projectors of this age and type is 150MHz, the fastest is 170MHz, and the average dot clock scanning frequency is 160MHz. The Panasonic PT-AE8000U has a quite slow dot clock scanning frequency (only 154 megahertz) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The PT-AE8000U is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector. Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-AE8000U have between 1 and 11 VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The weights of data projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-AE8000U range from 2.2g to 26kg. With a weight of 8.7 kilograms, the Panasonic PT-AE8000U is fairly heavy compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-AE8000U.

3 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-AE8000U

Average Running Costs

The PT-AE8000U has an average 1 year running cost of £100 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 123 projectors of a comparable type and age.

Released Over Four Years Ago

Panasonic released the PT-AE8000U over four years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,400 ANSI lumens, the PT-AE8000U has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-AE8000U.

We compared all the other 2,400 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this data projector and we think the Panasonic PT-AT6000E[plb_1803042_price], and the Epson EH-TW9000[plb_1751108_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Optoma HD25e[plb_2819896_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
