I'm with Mike G. I have the latest model Panasonic, the PT-AE8000U. The image is stunning. I have no cable, so I just watch movies with an Oppo 105 Blu-ray player. The sound and picture on that unit matches the projector. And the system does 3D. Watching a 3D movie, you are in an alternate reality. I find that when I watch a movie, I am never temped to get up and adjust this, or tweek that. I hit play and I am gone. I watched The Wizard of Oz in 3D the other night and it was surreal. A film that I have known and loved forever, now I am seeing in an all new way. Same with movies like The Searchers and Titanic in 3D. I have a Stewart 92" screen. That was about as big as I could go for the distance back I sit, any bigger and I would get a headache. Even still, some movies, like Cloverfield make me nauseous. Those films are rare though. If I had a bigger place, I would definitely go with a bigger screen. I don't see it as a draw back that I need a dark room, as I would not want to watch a movie any other way. I'm so glad I got this projection system instead of a conventional TV. It makes watching a movie at home, and event. And concert films are amazing. I have a National Geographic Universe Blu-ray that I like to put on and listen to other music to. That is a different experience. I have friends over often, but some of them come over just for the popcorn, as I figured out how to make amazing popcorn.
