9 Reasons For

User Reviews Are Excellent

Excellent Brand

Panasonic has excellent average ratings for its data projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Other projectors which support full HD currently available which you might also want to consider include the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Optoma HD30[plb_1915718_price] which has better reviews.

Supports 3D

The PT-AE8000U supports 3D, as do most of the other data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PT-AE8000U.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price] is also worth considering.

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

Average Projector Brightness

The Panasonic PT-AE8000U has a fairly standard projector brightness (2,400 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2,400 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic PT-AT6000E[plb_1803042_price], or the Epson EH-TW9000[plb_1751108_price].
