Panasonic PT-AE900U Review Roundup

This site has moved to AVReport.com

Panasonic PT-AE900U LCD Projector rivals highly acclaimed Sanyo PLV-Z4. According to some readings I have done over last couple of months, Panasonic is doing a better job than PLVZ4 although by specifications, Sanyo is a clear winner. Especially if you compare two by their contrast ratio. Basically, not counting a few properties, these two share the same feature set and for someone new to video projection image will seem the same. However, there is one major difference that will put my bias towards Panasonic - deinterlacing. Every review of PLV-Z4 states that projector lacks good deinterlacing and will be complete only when used with external video processor. Trust me that you will have more 480i output from various sources, such as that VCR which you still cannot part with or your cable set-top box, that will leave you with no choice but to go for a video scaler. There are many other reasons before 2009 for someone to care about deinterlacing and PLV-Z4 is not in the list of projectors that are "designed" for 480i video. In contrast, HomeTheaterHiFi does like the deinterlacing capabilities of PT-AE900U. And that is the major difference that makes me wander my preference towards Panasonic.

So here is a collection of links that will make your job much easier in making a decision.
