Pieter was very helpful with the purchase of a discounted laser projector listed on their site. He explained (after checking his records on the item) that it was an open box unit with no hours of usage, and the original purchaser had decided that it was not suitable for their needs. (It is somewhat larger and heavier than most projectors.) Since it had been opened, they couldn't sell it as "new", hence the discount. This has worked out extremely well for us, and the exhibit area we're using it in has been revitalized by the improved image quality and brightness. Many thanks to Pieter and Audio General for their excellent service!

I've been using audio general for years now with multiple companies. They always provide timely quotes and great customer service. I especially appreciate the quality products both new and bstock and their ability to always find me a cost effective solution to my needs.

Panasonic Projector PT-MZ670U is great. Really brightened up our main auditorium display. We were using a 3000 lumen projector in there before and I received multiple complaints about it not being bright enough with the lights on. With this new Panasonic, everyone is very happy, and say it is bright, clear and crisp on their fundus images (back of the eye).

I was as skeptical as anyone else out there that was in the market for a new Projector. I can attest that AGI really knows their products, are knowledgeable in the use case and function of projectors on the market. Finding one that really meets your needs is the key. There are so many choices and capabilities. I had a dedicated AV room and a large screen (135 inches) and wanted something that would fill that screen with a bright, detailed image. 4k was nice, but not a deal killer. Alexa support would be great, but there are workarounds. Go get a Harmony Hub and simplify your life instead of buying an inferior projector with an Alexa feature.

I am not a video snob. I just wanted quality equipment, great bright display, and did it get great reviews. Projector Central had my eyeballs for several months as I read reviews and shootouts. It came down to Optoma, Epson and Sony. I felt that Epson would do the trick and the price was right for the feature sets. Pixel shifting I will say is just as close to 4k as native. And I looked at many projectors before I finally pulled the trigger.

Being an American living in the Philippines it is often not easy to pay for purchases on products. I can tell you it was a breeze with AGI, after getting elaborate ways to pay with other vendors it was a quick purchase process once we agreed on which model I wanted. They accept PayPal. (Note to other vendors: Allow international customers to pay with PayPal from outside the US)

I asked them to pull it out of the box, ensure the firmware was up to date and run a test on it at their office before shipping. On my end, it was unpacked, mount and turn on the power. I had my Harmony Hub all set up and linked to Alexa. All I had to do was say "Alexa, watch a movie and the projector turned on, my Apple TV and Pioneer Elite turned on and I was watching Netflix in less than 5 minutes!

Within a week it was in my house, safe and sound. My Epson 5040UB is a gem. Bright display, great color, and the Projector Central screen calculator exactly matched my mount point on my ceiling. Using Apple TV 4k and other sources, I have 4k content streaming from the US on my Fiber to the Home connection (yes we have it here and it works great!)and no hiccups whatsoever.

Am I pleased? Absolutely. Do I know customer service? Yes, I was a Senior VP in a past life in that field. Do I understand technology? Yes, I was in Senior IT roles too. Can I spot a winner? AGI is a winner. Go buy from them, and support Projector Central for all they do for us novices out there trying to keep abreast of what's hot and what's not in the consumer world.

Audio General had by far the best price on my new JVC projector and it was shipped quickly and arrived well packed. There were plenty of emails communicating the status of my order along the way as well. This is a good place to do business.
