Panasonic PT-D5700U User Reviews
User ReviewsWrite a Review
The best projector money can buy. We already use 5500 and the 3500 from Panasonic along with other brands and models and this 5700 is a great machine compared with the preview model. Bether contrast, better image along with a better constrution, better fan location and the use of some lens from the rest of the family was a key point for this choose. Great job for Panasonic and we are glad to use this machine.
Any Problems: None.
I installed this projector, along with its sibling PT-D4000U, in an elementary school gymnasium for use as a scoreboard; it has been in use for about 2 months. I'm running about a 250" diagonal 4:3 picture projected on a flat white painted wall. Image is clear & bright even under full gym lighting. As far as I'm concerned, this projector line is ideal for large-venue permanent mount use; all functions except horiz lens shift are powered & available via remote and web browser. It has a large case and is rugged, well-cooled and filtered, designed more like industrial equipment than consumer electronics. Also; one of the lower-priced units in this class. First rate!
Bought the PT-D5700U for a film series in a historic theatre. Fantastic picture quality and brilliance on a 20 by 30 foot screen! Has many menu options that can tailor it to your auditorium application. Even though it has 2000:1 contrast ratio, the lower ratio setting gives a better brighter picture on very large screens. Projects widescreen movies equally well. Very happy with the unit and value.
Any Problems: This unit is not really designed to be portable, so somewhat awkward to carry around and set up. (it is a large and heavy unit) Inconvenience is worth the screen quality!
