I currently have a Panasonic AX200. I'd prefer not to have to move a new projector any closer as it will bring it 'into' the theater room (it shines through an opening in the wall at the moment).
I really want this unit to work, but if it won't... It won't. I'll keep looking. I have not interest in 3D, but I do want at least as good as black levels and picture quality as I have now. I would think going from 720p to 1080p would certainly offset any shortcomings of
I have a very similar setup ; over 19' from screen,100" diagonal,living room with 9 skylights (screen is placed in the darkest part of that room...) and in the evening I don't like to seat and watch my movies in complete darkness. Lens shift is a must ; shelf installation. In my opinion , AR-100 is gonna be perfect. That excessive brightness is coming down with Eco mode engaged and increased distance from screen,same for black levels. What I need ,is the light power of that PJ to make good PQ and nice pop. But,this is my setup,others may differ in opinions.
Definitely I'm going with that purchase. Now,I'm waiting to finish a nest for my new PJ (building a shelf...),and for another reviews ; from Art,and regular users in AVS forum. In about a month,I be ready to order. Then,I will post my own impressions,but I know now,I be not unhappy camper...
