Excellent Brand

We checked the reviews from experts and users of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each data projector manufacturer. On average projectors from Panasonic have excellent reviews from experts and users.

Supports Full HD Projection

The PT-FX400U supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-FX400U do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-FX400U, the PT-FX400U has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Gigabyte BRIX Projector.

This projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 576 (WSVGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA). The resolution of all multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago ranges from 640 x 400 to 4096 x 2160.
