do acoustic screens hamper sound in any way? this might be a perfect option for me and my room due to the width. To fit a larger screen than 92-100, I would have to build a false wall and put speakers and subs behind it.

You can speed up the break in by putting the lamp on high mode instead of eco.

 

I don't believe it was a flicker, by flicker I'm assuming the screen would go completely black for a split second?

 

It was an episode of boardwalk empire, it was a slight choppiness for probably a second and would happen every few minutes or so

They attenuate sound a very small amount. Check http://www.seymourav.com/ I think they have some measurements.

If the screen is motorized or can swing out of the way, then you might not need a wall. The screen would disappear when you weren't using it.

If Im watching a movie on the screen, I would need the screen and speakers. lol

I was just wondering if the screen would interfere with any calibrations etc..

I also recommend Seymour AT screens. It has been a few years, but from what I remember, it was a pleasure to buy and they helped me get the right size for the right amount. I went the DIY route and highly recommend it. A chop saw, wood, felt, and a staple gun is all you really need. From what I remember, I was in the $400 range. To buy that made by Seymour, while I am sure is quality, costs nearly $1000.

I got my AE8000 unit the other day. I was working on basic calibration and checking out the unit since this is my first projector. I noticed the sharpness and focus were not at all uniform once you got to sides of the screen about halfway over from center screen.Here is what I have for vertical convergence, seems like this isn't very good. Horizontal convergence is fine. Any thoughts about returning this unit for another? The first pic is the right hand side of the screen and the other 3 are the left.

I'm guessing you mean the Seymour Center Stage XD material. If so, that's the exact screen I purchased from Jamestown. Took a bit longer to arrive than originally stated, so be prepared to stay in touch with them. Other than that, it was easy to assemble and I haven't had any problems. The Seymour Center Stage XD pairs great with the 8000.

This is why I recommended testing even if not using for several months. I would contact vender and send this back if it were me.

Can anyone recommend a screen? I'm looking for a 2.35-2.4 aspect 130"+ screen. It will be used for Games/TV/Movies so there will be a couple lights on during the day. The lights won't be right above the viewing area, but they will be off to the side giving some ambient light (a little, not much). As of now I'm leaning towards getting one of the Black Diamond Zero Edge screens. Can anyone recommend anything else? If not, I'll probably stick with the Black Diamond. Budget is max $4,000.

I suspect they are all like this. Those pictures show identical uniform focus issues to the unit I demoed before choosing the JVC RS46. Feel free to exchange, but you'll have the same results.

My black friday PT-Ae8000 arrived today. Had a few hours to play with it, first checking convergence, focus and color uniformity ... and overall I'm satisfied. Looks fine to me. Popped in a 3D disk (Jurassic Park) ... and was pretty impressed with the 3D stuff. Not really into 3D, but very watchable.

The other point I was a bit concerned about is the fan sound. In eco I can't hear it really ... no different from the older PT-AE4000 that this is replacing.

The only thing that I absolutely loathed was that stupid lens shift joystick thing. What were they thinking. There was nothing wrong with the lens shift system on the 4000 ... so whoever dreamed that joystick thing up should be let go from Panasonic !

How do you check convergence? I'm not familiar with that. As for the joystick, I don't mind it. Once I have the projector in place, I'll set it up one time with the joystick and never touch it again.

There is some depending on perforated like some manufactures or woven lime Seymo. The perforated has a lot the woven not so much only in higher frequency You're audio calibration will be able to fix it on woven. Perforated not so much.

I'm thinking either going DIY with Seymour xd or letting James build me a Seymour xd.

Roughly same price by the time I get materials and velvet.

You checked at least 9 points, not just the center, correct? Center, right, left, top right, left, center and bottom right, left, center?

What's your build date? so far 3 people have posted in the last week or so with an identical focus uniformity issue...

I would like to know this also since my 8000 should be here soon. No screen yet so I'm assuming ill project it on a sheet or the wall.

Is there a reason that there is a green or bluish green blob in the middle of the picture. This is projected onto a sheetrock wall in my living room just to see if the projector was working or not.

It's defective, shut it off before you hit the 4 hour limit for returns. It is a sign from the projector gods. A $500 rebate is tempting, but not at this quality level. Try a swap if you wish, but I'd return it and wait until you need one and purchase then...just not the Panasonic. If your doing a 16x9 screen, get the Sony.

Are you saying that the Panny 8000 isn't a good PJ? I always thought they were good units? Did I miss something

and what sony are you recommending?

Read my mini-review. I'd look into the Sony HW30, HW50, JVC RS46/x35 or that new Epson.

Frankly, it doesn't make sense to purchase and store electronics, unless its for a short time and you got a good deal (like the $500 rebate). New models release so often, your better waiting until you need it.

I hate to be too harsh, but from what I've seen recently and experienced personally, these Pannys do not hold up to scrutiny. They look good, as long as you don't look to closely.

maybe it was a blessing in disguise. I haven't researched them much. a couple years back, I saw everyone going with the panny 4000, 7000 etc... I just bought this one because of the great deal.

I would definitely contact your seller about that green blob and get a replacement. Seems very out of character to me. Have had mine for a year, and am very happy with it. Color uniformity, focus, everything looks great for me. It's always a good idea to research products online. Just remember that for every negative review, there are probably 5 positive experiences that never get posted. Just the nature of the Internet. I'm not saying to disregard the negative reviews, just know that there are a great many of us out here who are hilariously happy with our panny 8000.

I had a AE7000 and loved it until the red panel started having issues. I did research and tried the AE8000 and ended up with the JVC RS46.

I'm not saying GWCR is guilty of this but many happy users don't notice the issues. I didn't notice the soft focus on my AE7000 for 2 years.

No offense taken. There may very well be some convergence or focus issue that might crop up down the road, I just haven't experienced them and have about 500 hours on the pj. We primarily watch movies and HD sports. When I did the initial calibration, I used the Disney WOW disk. Didn't notice any issues. I have had to adjust the focus 1-2 times over the past year (once when I accidentally saved over the 2.35 setting mad.gif), and just used the video onscreen after a good warmup period. If I don't notice it during a movie or TV show, I don't care about it. Not too often (if ever) that I watch white lines on a blue or black background. Not trying to be a d!ck, just saying that under normal viewing conditions, I LOVE this pj! wink.gif

I didn't mean I DONT research anything I buy. I just meant that I haven't been researching very hard on the PJs. Years back, I saw a lot of members using the Panasonics and still are. I just figured it being the updated model and all, plus having a rebate it was a no brainer.

Dream, do you sell PJs for a living? I was just wondering how you are so knowledgeable in this field. Not being a dick.

I used to sell commercial projectors, Sanyo, Barco, etc. For home theater I was pretty green but I wanted to make sure I spent my money wisely. I loved my AE7000 until I started looking closely at it. When I got the AE8000 I looked closely at it right away and I hated it. I ended up with the JVC RS46 because I have a 2.35:1 screen and needed something with lens memory. When you do your research you will find that Sony stands out as the best all around performer. I recommended the HW50 to my brother, I would have purchased another screen and picked up a HW50 myself but the screen would have been too small to fit in my room. While the HW50 is more expensive than the AE8000 (especially with that rebate) it certainly does not excuse the focus, uniformity and convergence issues with the Panasonic.

I will probably only go with a 16x9 screen. What made you hate the 8000? Where is a good place to purchase the JVC? what made you like JVC.
