    Hi guys! I'm here to ask some advices.My rented apartment doesn't have a TV, and firstly I thought I'd buy one by myself. But lately I was browsing eBay and home projectors came into my field of view. I did a little research and found out that some used projectors priced under $200 are actually...
  2. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I need a recommendation on a projector. I don't even know what questions to ask. A basic model I guess. I just want to watch movies and football occasionally. Does the size of the screen dictate the projection need?
  3. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    I just posted a request to review the JVC also as I am trying to compare these two units. Does anyone know where I could demo Panasonic PT-AE8000 in the Atlanta area? I just need to see for myself what level of “black” these projectors can reproduce. Having come from CRT projectors, I know...

     This is my first post on AVS and it being NYE I'm a little out of it (sorry), but here goes, I've had a Pioneer receiver since I lived in the Army barracks (23 years ago and it still works like a champ) and a Harman Kardon for maybe 10 years and it also is going strong but lacking modern tech...

  7. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
     Hello I hope this is an interesting question for the folks in the forum used to mainly home theatre display questions.   I am designing an art installation for an artist who needs a high resolution, high brightness image. The image being projected is high contrast so I am looking for deep...
  8. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I have had my eye on the Optoma HD131xe for a while, to replace my old Panasonic AE900U that crapped out on me a couple of months ago. I was concerned about the lack of lens shift though, as I used it for my setup with the AE900. When I got the Black Friday email from B&H I bit, seeing that the...
  9. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I am not buying a new projector until 4K projectors are under $3K. Recently I changed my Panasonic PT AE3000 lamp. Then the Temperature warning light came on the screen more often and the unit turned off frequently. I panicked and started looking for a new 4K projectors or a new 4K 90 inch...

    Hello, I have a Panasonic AE900u and a 4'x8' Parkland screen in a dedicated light controlled theater. I am using the full height of the Parkland and we like the size but with the new projector, I want to use the features to easily project similar height widescreen movies which results in a...

    Hey folks, I am in the process of replacing my Panny AE900U PJ that went bad on me. I loved the pj, but am looking to replace it with one of the lower priced value projectors (Optoma HD131Xe or BenQ W1070). I would love to get the Panasonic PT-AE8000, but college tuitions make that an...
  12. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    What to do? Budget is about $2500 or less. Shooting on a 92" dalite (sp) about 14 feet away, ceiling mount. Finished basement, light controlled, 3D isn't needed. Huge open room with a fireplace under screen. Mainly used for movies and watching sports. Yes, I've been reading the reviews but...
  13. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I'm wondering if anyone has an opinion as to whether or not it's worth upgrading to get higher picture quality. The Panasonic is 720P, and of course the new Epson is 1080P The Epson has lots of features, but for me the real decision maker is the picture quality. 3D is of no particular...
  14. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I have owned my AE900U for nearly 10 years and have loved it. I still have the original bulb as a spare. I am sure there are better ones out there now, but for my needs I would be fine fixing this one if it can be done for a reasonable price. The new LCDs I have looked at in the 1000 to 1500...
  15. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi, I have had my projector for about two years. I am now having the following issue: I turn on the unit and the standby light goes to Red. I press power and the light goes to green, but the fan does not make any sound, and the lamp does not come on. I have waited for as much as 20 minutes...

    Thanks for the welcome. I've been a follower of this forum for 7 years back when i built my first media room and got sound advice from the experts here on equipment to use.

    I've owned the Panasonic PT-AE900U and an Optoma HD-65 but got rid of both over the years. Well, I'm coming back to projectors again. Want great black levels and contrast My chief "complaint" about both projectors was the black level and contrast were really weak. Like most other AVSers, I'm...
  18. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    I recently purchased the AE7000... I'm generally really happy with it's performance and it's an amazing upgrade from my previous AE900! My only issue is that for some reason, I get a bright white screen at start-up and the remotes are all non-responsive. I have to shut it down and restart...
  19. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    I'm just curious to see if anyone else on here is as crazy as me as far as purchases go? The unfortunate thing about anything visual is that you need to actually see it in person to really get an understanding of what the product is all about. I have to say that projectors are one of the hardest...
  20. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    My AE900 randomly shuts off, then will turn itself back on. It could happen after 1 hr or 5 minutes. Thinking it might be the iris, I lubricated it according to a YouTube video mentioned in another thread. I'm thinking of disconnecting the iris, but wanted to see if anyone else has...
