They are also usually the number one selling projectors, year after year, at least at their given price point, so one should expect
to read more reports about dust blob problems from them
than any other brand.
|The Panasonic line of projectors is notorious for this "dust blob" problem.
Says who? Let's pretend for the moment that the 121 found instances for "dust blob" in a search of this thread [before this post went up, that is] are each an individual post of a testimony of an owner saying, effectively, "My unit has a dust blob problem that I can see on my projected image". This is a bit of a stretch because in truth many of these instances come repeatedly from within one post and also certain individuals, for example William G., having a legitimate back and forth discussion about it, and a good many are also posts from some others responding, essentially with, "There is a good solution for dust blobs
given in this other post if you don't want to send your unit in for service.", etc.
121 / 6268 posts = 1.9% of owners have a visible dust blob issue, 98.1% don't.
I personally wouldn't call that "notorious", but YMMV. I also see it as a "dust" problem, not a "Panasonic" problem. All
non-sealed optics light path projectors are potentially susceptible to dust blobs, not just Panasonic. If this is a known issue where you live, don't buy another.
