Re: The Panasonic PT-AE4000U Projector Giveaway Qualification Thread

Okay, I am qualified for this one.

I've been wanting to do a projector with an acoustically transparent screen for two or three years now. I haven't been able to do it yet. This would obviously make it a reality (if I DIY the Seymour CenterStage XD screen for a few hundred bucks, which I intended to do anyway). Awesome giveaway yet again!

I've always wanted a projector ever since on of my college friends had a 100 inch screen on a bed sheet that still managed to look great in dark light, and this was a Chinese piece of , I can only imagine a quality projector on a quality screen being quite the show. I would love to sett this up in our living room since we have excellent light control. It would be great since we have company over almost everyday just to sit and hang with us. Our 55 inch led gets praise all the time, can't imagine reactions to this bad boy. Good luck to all who have entered, and thanks again Sonnie and HTS for giving everyone an opportunity to attain quality gear we otherwise couldn't afford.

Re: The Panasonic PT-AE4000U Projector Giveaway Qualification Thread

I love Panasonic projectors and they are they the only brand we install in our HT systems. I am still running my AE-2000 and would love to have a HD 1080P projector. I need it bad.

I own a Panasonic TV and love the black levels.
I have never owned a projector and would love to have a dedicated home theater. I would convert one of the rooms so when it is movie time the family can enjoy.

Please consider my entry to this contest. My two year old son would love to watch his disney classic "dumbo" on the big screen. And this would help get us there!

Please enter me in the drawing. Right now I only have a 59" plasma. If I win this projector I will buy a motorized, tensioned screen and have it drop down in front of the plasma for movie viewing! Theater complete!

I would love to be entered into this giveaway. Once again thank you HTS

If I were to win this I would install a drop down screen in front of my 55" LCD tv. I've considered doing this anyway since it may be awhile before I have a dedicated HT room. It seems many people are very high on Panasonic projectors.

Re: The Panasonic PT-AE4000U Projector Giveaway Qualification Thread

When I head down to my basement theater and fire up the lights, audio, and projector, my excitement is slightly dampened when I look at the poor contrast and lack of sharp picture of the projector. I spent a lot of time making my modest theater as good as I could make it. My budget speakers and budget A/V receiver combine well to make some solid sound, but the compromises I had to make on the projector because of price and the dreaded DLP rainbow effect have left me underwhelmed.

I originally had a DLP 1080p projector with 15,000:1 contrast ratio. It had great black levels and a clear picture, especially considering the price. But I saw rainbows everywhere. My heart sank, and I started to worry that I had spent a year of my life and a substantial amount of money to watch movies that looked like acid flashbacks. I finally sucked it up and returned the projector, eating the $150 re-stocking fee, and got an LCD projector. The LCD has vivid colors and no rainbows, but the contrast is a pathetic 3000:1, and it lacks the sharpness of full 1080 HD.

I love my home theater. This is the first time I have done anything like it, and I am hooked. It has only been complete since August, but my wife, kids, and I have already made it a favorite part of our weekend. I want to upgrade my projector, but I can't. It just isn't feasible right now. I have tried to do the best with what I have by using masking and an ND filter to improve perceived contrast, but what I need is the Panasonic PT-AE4000U. Thanks for your time and consideration!
