11 Reasons For

Excellent Expert Reviews

This data projector received a score of 90 out of 100 from expert review website

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

We calculated the average reviews for all Panasonic projectors and also specifically for Panasonic projectors and found that in both cases Panasonic had excellent reviews compared to other brands.

Good 3D Picture Quality

One person who bought the product reckoned that it had a good 3D picture quality. said “It uses active 3D technology, with a builtin IR emitter” in their review of this projector.

Easy to Use

One person concluded that it was easy to use. gave it a score of 5 stars and mentioned “Panasonic has opted to use IR instead of RF for its sync emitter”.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the PTAE7000U which do not support Full HD projection, the PTAE7000U supports Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+, the Epson PowerLite Pro G6900WU, or the Acer H9500BD.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The PTAE7000U supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the PTAE7000U.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Benq W7000+, the Sony VPL-VW1000ES, and the Epson PowerLite 4650 ($1,862.42) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Three Component Video in Ports

The PTAE7000U has more component video in ports than most of the similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. This Panasonic projector is a three component video in port projector compared to most of the data projectors that are a comparable age to the PTAE7000U which only have between one and two component video in ports.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Panasonic PTAE7000U does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the PTAE7000U also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

Data projectors of this age and spec have dot clock scanning frequencies of between 150MHz and 240MHz. At only 154 megahertz, the PTAE7000U has a fairly slow dot clock scanning frequency compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The PTAE7000U is a one VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector. Most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the PTAE7000U have between 1 and 11 VGA (D-Sub) ports.

2 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PTAE7000U

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this Panasonic projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

The PTAE7000U has a pretty average projector brightness (2,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

Other 2,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available which you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+, or the Acer H9500BD.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the 5020UB (2,400 ANSI lumens), or the PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub ($2,995.00) (2,400 ANSI lumens) both from Epson or the Optoma HD50 (2,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
