We first told you about the Panasonic PT-AX100U HD projector back in September, but I finally got my hands on this projector to try out on my own.

Jump for photos, and my impressions of the automatic brightness adjuster.

This projector is beautiful. It is one of the better, more reasonable ($3,000) HD home theatre projectors out there. It runs at a glorious 720p resolution with a lamp capable of producing 2,000 lumens of brightness. It also has a 6,000:1 contrast ratio. It isn't too bulky, and runs quiet as a mouse fart.

I have only been trying this projector out for a day, but thus far it is pretty amazing. From the picture image you see below, I have it projected across my entire wall (roughly 150 inches diagonal) and it still looks beautiful.

One of the nicer features is the automatic brightness adjustments. I have a giant patio door in my living room that lets in a decent amount of light. Using the Light Harmonizer technology, this projector will adjust the brightness depending on how much light is in the room.

(Pardon my projection picture. It is difficult to accurately capture how beautiful this image is with a camera)
