Panasonic PT-AE7000E: 3D Pictures At A Price

Not that keen on 3D TVs? Panasonic's hoping to tempt buyers with its first 3D Home Theatre Projector instead, the Full HD capable PT-AE7000E. It's not exactly a name that slips off the tongue, although the base specifications of the PT-AE7000E are relatively impressive. It's Full HD capable, claims a 300,000:1 contrast ratio, 2,000 lumen brightness and uses transparent LCD panels running at 480Hz; Panasonic's claim for this technology is that it should significantly cut down on crosstalk. Lamp life is stated at 5,000 hours.

The PT-AE7000E sells for an RRP of $4179 with two pairs of 3D glasses. You'd want to make sure you didn't tread on too many pairs, as additional pairs will cost you a crunching $169 each. [Panasonic]
