10 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Multimedia Projector Reviews

Panasonic is one of the best projector manufacturers according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

When compared to other comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago that we have checked, the Panasonic PT-EX16's projector brightness of 16,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest. The average projector brightness of 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-EX16 is 4,100 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 500 ANSI lumens to 16,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD Projection

The PT-EX16 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PT-EX16 do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the CP-WU9410, or the CP-HD9320 both from Hitachi.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The PT-EX16 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-EX16. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this projector. This Panasonic projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720) and 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) and 640 x 480 (VGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is actually the best supported resolution amongst all projectors of this spec and age.

Amongst similar types of multimedia projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Very Big Matrix Size

The average matrix size of projectors of this type and age is 0.7", and the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 1.8". When compared to other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PT-EX16, the PT-EX16's matrix size of 1.8 inches is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Four Lamps

The PT-EX16 has more lamps than most of the 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-EX16. Most of the 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-EX16 only have between one and three lamps, however this multimedia projector has four lamps.

Chart Edit

Two RS-232 Ports

The Panasonic PT-EX16 has more RS-232 ports than most of the multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-EX16. This multimedia projector is a two RS-232 port data projector compared to most of the multimedia projectors of this type and age which only have one RS-232 port.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Uniformity

The uniformities of multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-EX16 range from 85% to 90%. With a uniformity of 90 percent, the Panasonic PT-EX16 has a quite big uniformity compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Very Big Lamp Power

With a lamp power of 380 Watts, the PT-EX16's lamp power is one of the biggest amongst 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago. Across all the comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-EX16 the lamp power range from 190W to 400W.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

The average dot clock scanning frequency of projectors of this type and age is 76MHz, and the dot clock scanning frequencies range from 1MHz to 170MHz. The Panasonic PT-EX16 has a very fast dot clock scanning frequency (162 megahertz) compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PT-EX16.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for more than two years have a built-in speaker, however the PT-EX16 does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Hitachi CP-WU9410 is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most comparable spec projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support 3D image projection. The PT-EX16 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-EX16, the Panasonic PT-EX16 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At only 3,000 hours, the PT-EX16 has a fairly short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. Across all the 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PT-EX16 the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 2,000h to 8,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The PT-EX16 has one of the shorter lamp service lives (only 2,000 hours) amongst 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The average lamp service life of 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-EX16 is 4,000h, and the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most data projectors of this age and type have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the PT-EX16 which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level

When compared to other 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-EX16 that we have assessed the noise level of, the PT-EX16's noise level of 51 decibels is one of the loudest. The noise levels of 2500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the PT-EX16 range from 24dB to 51dB, and the average noise level is 33dB.
