Reading the articles on this forum re: the PTAE100 it seems that this projector has a multitude of problems? But in the sticky poll the pro's outway the cons. Something in the region of 73% of you have had no problems. I have a friend who installs Audio Visual equipment and he informs me that most of the projectors he has dealt with have had problems at some time - even within the first few weeks of usage. I emailed Panasonic and expressed my concern at the amount of people complaining about the 100. In their reply thay stated that they had received no such complaints (maybe a cover up) But who knows. I am very happy with my purchase......although it is only a month old. And it isn't a Vauxhall!!!! Perhaps 16 reported problems (well in this forum anyway) in the 100's or so projectors sold so far isn't something to be too concerned about?
