Consolidated AE700 thread- Ban is lifted - Page 2

post #31 of 4527
Mid next year will be two years with my 200u. This could be the machine I upgrade to, maybe. No sign of HD-DVD yet so if that peeks it's head out sometime next year, I'm upgrading. If not I'll wait another year for the AE-800
post #32 of 4527
Watch the AE700 will be perfect but for some reason it won't do something like 1:1 pixel mapping.

After Panasonic did this with the 300u I will never trust them again.

Hi Monkey_Man and others,

Interesting to see you guys know so much about a upcoming product!

For me I only want the END of VB.

regards,

Li On

If the AE-700 does away with VB I'll upgrade my AE-500 in a heart beat. To me - the elimination of VB would be the most important modification Panasonic could make. That would be #1 on my wish list. Lens shift would be #2 - and is very welcomed. Any increase (however small) in contrast ratio would be #3.
post #35 of 4527
Is there any indication whether Panasonic will continue with their (moronic) separate Consumer and Business models of the 700? I qualify for an employee discount on the consumer model, but not on the business model. And since they recently stopped selling the consumer model of the 500, I have to either wait for a consumer 700 or decide to buy a different projector without discount. Any hints?

VB is a problem that shouln't exsist at all. i mean, CR and fill factor is technology limitation, but VB is just bad quality control.
so it seems better blacks are in order, this is very welcome, as they are defenetly lacking in the current model, a bit of increased fill factor will help a bit in the peek a boo scanlines department.. but to be honest, i expected this to pretty much go away, as i thought they'd use 1080p instead of 720p. (even with out the added fill factor on the new panel 1080p would beat it in a heartbeat!).

so hopefully, this time around epson and all of their clients will hopefuly have better quality control and give us a VB free display.

If the 700 uses d4 panels too, i would think that the vb is exactly the same. Db specs where are you! I'm so exited about how little noise it will make.

Hmm... they changed the form factor anyway.

Does anyone know how to translate a pdf?

1000 ANSI in normal mode
850 ANSI in eco mode

Could this be right?

Also says 27 db in normal mode, wonder what it is in eco mode?
post #43 of 4527
Doubtful, unless they've decided to stop inflating their specs

Lol! I think it looks like a philips product now. But it looks simple and beutiful to me.

This picture shows that the air intake is still on the side.
And on the other you can see the air filter.

Thanks for all the info so far! Here's hoping no VB

Thanks for the translation B.Wilson.

Does hdmi have the same problems with cable length as dvi does?

Looks like panasonic want to be ahead of the z3, because last year panasonic released the 500 first in japan then in america and at last europe. And now AE700 will have WORLD RELEASE at september. Go for it Panasonic!
post #50 of 4527
I am a noob with pj's so please help me out here. Just when I am ready to pull the trigger and make a decision between the Panny 500 and the Z2, I find that IF is pulling out the 5000 and now panny is pulling out a 700.

Is this always the case. Am I ever going to find a time when it is not prudent to wait and see... Or is this abnormal?

The lack of DVI might be more hurtful for HTPC users than evryone realizes, this *could* mean no 1:1 pixel maping (at least digital 1:1), the reason is, on "HDTV inputs" there's overscan in the panny 500, and if this is treated as one, it will probably have overscan, hopefuly they'll add an option to enable/disable overscan (i belive this overscan is so that 1.85 movies fit the screen entirely)
post #52 of 4527
If this is really released in september and the specs turn out to be half of what they claim then you should get the 700. Hopefully Vb is worked out and the contrast is 1000 or better calibrated. That would be twice the projector my 500u is now. I'll get one myself. I can live with the 1280x720 still. As long as this projector performs.

I was thinkin about the Yamaha 510. What do you guys think?

an HDMI <> DVI adapter should solve this problem.

Heimkinofeeling polyurethane promises the Pt-ae700e.

if we're to believe the hype this projector will leave no more desires open.
post #55 of 4527
I assume it will be on display at the CEDIA show this year. Can't wait to see it

post #56 of 4527
yipchunyu, that's my point exactly, the HDMI input will probably be just a "HDTV input" wich means it will have overscan if it's treated like one, but like i said, hopefully they'll just add an option to turn overscan off.

i heard that Hitachi's TX100 has the overscan control (don't know it's true or not). Just hope the AE700 has the same kind of function.

UK supplier AVland now have it on their site. Not sure there's any new info in it.
