Panasonic PT-AR100U 1080p Home Entertainment Projector
4.5 Star Review  projectorcentral.com - Nov 1, 2011

The Panasonic PT-AR100U is a strong multi-purpose projector that's ideal for the ambient light of a typical living room. Following in the tradition of the AX100 and AX200 models from several years ago, the AR100U makes some improvements to the Light Harmonizer feature that sets these projectors apart from other home entertainment models. With the Light Harmonizer, you won't even need to change image modes, especially if you're using a preset like Vivid Cinema, which combines high brightness with accurate color. In a classic home theater situation, where ambient light is not a factor, the projector's less than solid black level becomes more noticeable and digital noise can be distracting. When compared to the Epson Home Cinema 8350, it becomes clear that Panasonic made some compromises in order to design a better home entertainment projector, and these compromises make it less effective as a home theater projector--though not by much. The bottom line is this: if you want a projector that performs in the living room, whether that be for games, or sports, or just television, the AR100U is about as good as it gets. The fact that it can multi-task as a home theater projector is a bonus, and a good one, but its faults in that area in no way take away from its performance in its intended niche.
