What transformer did all you pricejapan 500 owners use?
there must be someone here who has a panny 500 and uses it in england..right?!
Possibly not, Japanese menus and needing a convertor is probably one concession too many most people
That and the Z2 seems to be getting better reviews.
I've got a AE500 running happily using a transformer
My supplier originally gave me a 100VA unit, but as the AE500 pulls 180W, the fuse blew in just under 5 minutes!
Currently I'm using an RS made 200VA autotransformer to good effect (borrowed from work) but I'm expecting my supplier to deliver a 200VA unit similar to this:
Very happy with my AE500, though the Jap menus are a slight pain...
Also have Ae500 using the transformer that jake has mentioned, Menus a pain in the proverbial but nothing much else to complain about.
please could you guys post some screenshots!!really would like to see some!
AE500 owners and users
Am dying to buy one from JAPAN, but have a couple of questions:
Pls help advise on this Japanese unit. I would like to know if
1. It can playback PAL discs.
Does it convert it back to NTSC.
What resolutions can it support? 480P/I, 720P/I, 1080i?
Does the power cycle affect the unit at all? I am in Singapore electric is pumped using 60hz. I know in Japan, its 50hz, does the transormer settle all these issues?
2. Does it have a DVI/HDCP port? I had my Japanese friend look at the specs at the panasonic Japan website, it said it had this port am wondering, do you guys have this on board?
I have a V880 Momitsu and am dying to try on this babay? anyone with this combo?
Did I mention I have a Japanese friend and be happy to help translate or whatever for this unit once of course I get my hands on it.
