Be aware of the limited lifespan Anyone buying a Panasonic LCD projector with organic LCD panels, such as this one. Great picture as long as it works The projector worked fine for about 18 months.

very happy, great picture especially with good DVD/HD signal. Owned it for about 10mths and so far so good on the reliability front.

However, if you use it for extended time periods, such as in lieu of a normal family TV (for daily TV watching or video gaming).

This projector is the best value at present. I use it with a Comcast HDTV Cable Box and my RCA HD DVD Home Theater System. I swapped this out for my old panasonic PTL900. The pt-ax200u is 2/3 the price for what I paid for the 900.

Thus far I have only hooked up the projector to my computer and Xbox 360. Crappy downloaded movies from the internet look amazingly good.

Cinema 1 Mode Offers Hollywood Picture Quality
Panasonic worked with experts in Hollywoodthe movie capital of the worldto create the ideal image reproduction for viewing movies. This allows the PT-AX200 to deliver true Hollywood picture quality, with images that faithfully express the directors artistic intent.

Pure Color Filter

The Pure Color Filter was born from Panasonics pursuit of optical technology that delivers true Hollywood picture quality. The light spectrum is adjusted to produce a level of light that maximizes the performance of the LCD panels, which expands the color range and produces truer blacks.

Smooth Screen Technology

Developed exclusively by Panasonic, this effectively reduces the black lines between pixels that mar picture quality. The highdefinition picture of the PT-AX200 is remarkably smooth and film-like, while remaining amazingly sharp and detailed.
PT-AX200: Light Harmonizer 2

Dynamic Iris

Dynamic Iris has been refined to provide deeper, richer blacks needed for true image reproduction with stunning smoothness. This technology adjusts the lamp power, iris, and gamma curve according to data obtained from frame-by-frame histogram analysis of the image brightness level.
High-precision iris mechanism
Advanced Dynamic Sharpness Control
The new Advanced Dynamic Sharpness Control determines image areas that need to be sharpened at varying degrees by examining small changes in brightness levels within the image. This greatly reduces noise amplification and delivers clear and natural looking images.
A 1,000-lumen class projector
*1: For LCD projectors with native resolution of 720p, as of August 1, 2007. *2: The Light Harmonizer 2 is set to Auto at the factory. There is also a Manual mode if you want to finetune the picture yourself.

2x Optical Zoom Lens

The 2x optical zoom lens provides a wide throw range that gives you outstanding setup flexibility, letting you enjoy large-screen viewing in different sized rooms. Position it on a table in front of you, suspend it from the ceiling, or place it on a bookshelf behind you.
Simple, Convenient Remote Control
The remote control is intuitively laid out for ease of use. The picture mode select buttons are divided into Theater Room and Living Room to separate the modes into those recommended for dark room viewing and bright room viewing respectively.
Vertical and Horizontal Lens Shift
Adjust the positioning of the picture vertically and horizontally by simply operating a joystick. The shift range is 63% of the screen height for vertical adjustment, and 25% of the screen width for horizontal adjustment.

Other Features

Seven picture modes include game, vivid cinema, normal, dynamic, cinema 1, and cinema 2. User equalizing function lets you adjust the high, mid and low gamma levels.

Ecology-Conscious Design

Panasonic strives to minimize environmental impact caused by its products through careful consideration of design, production, delivery, process and product life cycle. The PT-AX200 reflects the following ecological considerations. Lead-free solder is used to mount components on the printed circuit boards. No halogenated flame retardants are used in the cabinet. No polystyrene foam is used in the packing materials. Lead-free glass is used for the lens. The packing case and operating manual are made from recycled paper. Lamp power switching further reduces power consumption. Standby power consumption is a mere 0.08 watts in the standby mode.

*1: The projector uses a type of liquid crystal panel that typically consists of millions of pixels. This panel is built with very high-precision technology designed to provide one of the finest possible images. Occasionally, a few pixels may remain turned on (bright) or turned off (dark). Please note that this is an intrinsic characteristic of the manufacturing technology that affects all products using LCD technology. *2: The projector uses a high-voltage mercury lamp that contains high internal pressure. This lamp may break, emitting a large sound, or fail to illuminate, due to impact or extended use. The length of time that it takes for the lamp to break or fail to illuminate varies greatly depending on individual lamp characteristics and usage conditions. *3: Measurement, measuring conditions, and method of notation all comply with ISO 21118 international standards. *4: In AI mode, with dynamic iris on *5: Shift range is limited during simultaneous horizontal and vertical shifting. *6: Excluding protrusions

Panasonic PT-AX200E

An affordable projector, but the price comes with strings attached
BCheap as chips; terrific game mode; no chicken wire problems visible EBlack level issues; brightness stepping; slight noise in dark areas
MOST PEOPLE USUALLY dismiss the idea of owning a projector for two main reasons: price and the difculty of accommodating one in the home. But with its strikingly low price tag and remarkably high brightness level, the PT-AX200E is out to sweep away both of those obstacles in one fell swoop. The AX200E also boasts more genuinely useful features than youd expect to nd on something this affordable. Panasonics Smooth Screen technology, is on hand to cure LCDs traditional chicken wire problem where the pixel structure of the panels are clearly delineated in the nal projected image. Its also pleasing to nd the unit compatible with 1080p/24fps feeds from Blu-ray players, even though its native resolution is only 1,280 x 720 pixels. Theres a likeable selection of themed image presets too, including one called Cinema 1 that has been specially calibrated by Hollywood insiders. Inevitably for an LCD projector, the AX200E employs a dynamic contrast system that dims the lamp output when dark scenes are

Similarly priced, this DLP model has much to offer if youre not bothered by its slight rainbow effect problem. Reviewed: Issue 320

/ InFocus IN76

This DLP model is slightly more expensive. But its a really accomplished performer despite its relative vintage. Reviewed: Issue 309
Its rather chunky shape and bland colour scheme are hardly going to make it a design classic. Things look up with the array of connections, which rise above that budget price tag by including two HDMI sockets. Of course you also get a component video input to satisfy the HD Ready demands, plus a D-Sub PC input, the standard S-video and composite fallbacks and one serial port.

Have your say on the PT-AX200E Log on to

Ease of use

Setup is the AX200Es real strength, thanks to a brilliant little joystick affair that lets you shift the picture up, down, left or right, combined with loads of keystone adjustment, and a massive x2 zoom that should also make it adaptable to pretty much any room size. The backlit remote control is simple, too.

Fact le

/ LCD projector / HD Ready / Smooth Screen technology / 6,000:1 claimed contrast ratio / 2,000 ANSI Lumens brightness


As youd expect of something from a manufacturer with such a long and prestigious projector heritage, the AX200Es pictures are far better than its price might suggest. For instance, the Smooth Screen system ensures theres absolutely no sign of LCDs chicken wire problem and images are as smooth as silk. Choose the Cinema 1 preset and colours are unusually natural for this price point, too, avoiding the tendency of cheap, liquid crystal projectors to overcook hues to a level more suited to PC than video purposes. That said, theres also a genuinely terric Game mode that pumps up the colour range and drives your Xbox 360 and PS3 games off the screen. And nally, motion looks crisp and noise-free, devoid of the rainbow effect that blights budget DLP rivals. So, why the low picture score? Theres a small cluster of reasons. First and worst, black levels arent great; dark scenes are noticeably greyed over, even with the lamp set to eco and the Cinema presets on. Also, we noticed some rather distracting brightness jumps at times when the dynamic contrast system snaps // into action. As a result of the black level limitations, dark scenes lack a few background details and even suffer the odd colour discrepancy. Some gentle zzing noise also appears in dark scenes, and nally, while the Smooth Screen system successfully removes the chicken wire effect, it makes HD sources look slightly softer than is ideal.

into a normal domestic setting, for it implies that its pictures should be watchable even in a not completely darkened room. In fact, the projector goes so far as to include a Light Harmoniser function that adjusts the pictures settings in response to how much ambient light is detected in the room. Furthermore, a Pure Colour Filter manipulates the lamp output to improve colour toning; sceneadaptive MPEG noise reduction; a dynamic sharpness control that seeks out and subdues potentially over-harsh edges; and normal and eco lamp power options.
AV enthusiasts may wish for a little more core picture quality than the AX200E offers, but more casual users will lap it up


The sort of casual user the AX200E is clearly aimed at will probably scarcely be able to believe their luck when they realise what huge and bright images they can get for south of a grand. Z
