This 5 star review of ther Panasonic PT-AT5000 projector is extremely misleading and in parts inaccurate. Ok while the 2D pictures are excellent and perhaps do deserve a 5 Star rating the claims that the 3D are "Near Faultless, Minimal Cross Talk and the reviewer was struck with the Quality" is just rubbish. I have tried all sorts of variations, adjustments and even acquired a new Sky HD+ box plus 1.4a Hdmi cables, I cannot rid the Projectors abject display of the "Cross Talk" phenomenon it is extremly poor especially via SKY 3D (Not so bad on 3D DVD). Everything has a ghosting shadow around it and for example when watching live sport, take the Golf Ryder Cup, the flag had an shadow sleeve around it almost as if there were 3 flags, football, in paricular anything other than close ups has the same issue, rubbish, even David Attenborughs "Flying with the Dinasors" gives the creatures shadows and blurring. Just to be sure my critisms are fair I have watched the same progammes on a large LG Passive 3D TV and also via a Optoma HD67 Projector with a 3D-XL converter and there was hardly any Cross Talk.
Very dissapointed and feel misled by the reviews after 200 hours trying to get this right I can only manage to award it a 3 Star and that is only because the 2D is excellent.
Just got mine picture is superb but suprised nobody mentioned the major flaw none of my remotes work when watching 3d because of the glasses emiter
Thanks for that. Unfortunately, we don't have many AV retailers in Dublin. Many good places have closed down over the last couple years, and the places that are still here don't stock things like that.
The best price I've found online is from Pixmania.ie, for €3100 (about £2565). Never used them before though. Any thoughts on their respectability?
Hi, i am wondering how you got on with finding a Panasonic At5000 projector ?
I am in the process of deciding on a new projector at the moment .
I am looking at the At5000 ,Epson EH6000 and the Optoma HD33.
I'm not finding much help here in Ireland.
It's worth checking out the January sales from retail chains such as Sevenoaks, RGB Direct, Hi-Fi Corner and others as there may be some good deals around. It generally seems to be available for around £2700 at the mo.
Where is the best place to buy one of these? Is online definitely the cheapest? What are the best sales websites? I'm in Dublin, so they'd need to ship to Ireland.
Wait till 2012 for the newcomers, watch it beat all age newcomers then buy it at a reduced price!!
should i get this? or wait till 2012 for the new comers?

A classic example of style over substance. Given tweaks to the sound it could be far better, but that’s not to be for now
All style and little substance – the Pill isn’t talented enough to compete with more accomplished class rivals
The picture doesn’t have the impact of the top 4K TVs, but it’s still a fantastic watch
