are impressed with the 8000:
"...that working the detail enhancement (detail clarity) now available in 3D, or the new "3D motion remaster" function, or the increased contrast, and of course the increased brightness, the GA. the 3D benefit. This made me the fluid of movements, the absolutely clean separation of image and convinces the high brightness (in dynamic mode). Subjectively, the 3D image was even brighter than in the TW9100, but that does of course not properly compare. Worked for me the image in any case fully convincing, so that I now have to buy the PT AT6000.
(frame interpolation FI) and resolution enhancement (Super resolution) only in 2D mode"
Ekkehart (cine4home) tested a preproduction unit
"and are regarded only as preliminary evidence!
The comfort was increased (lens memory also in 3D) and the picture quality in various details increased (sharpness, gamma). With a light increase of around 20% of PT AT6000 is noticeably brighter. The advantages for 3D are obvious, but by winning light, the device is still Wohnraumtauglicher, so he offers an impressive quality that can optimally be irritated by the various modes in not completely darkened rooms as a TV replacement for games and sports.
Very good colors, detailed appearance, bright and contrast image composition, 3D artifact-poor, all-in-all gave a very impressive first impression the Panasonic PT-AT6000 for our common afternoon and this is known to be the most important. But it is important to examine many details in the final test, so it remains exciting, until we reach the first series devices."
Its obvious that these are the products that should have been released last year. In fact Sony is now only releasing its x-reality/CR processing in its ES line for any projector priced under $25k. Their LCD line has had x-reality processing since 1997
Of the three projectors,the new Epson has the least amount of improvements this year. The reviews in the next couple of months should provide excellent guidance to make an informed decision.
