7 Reasons For

Panasonic Data Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

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

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Panasonic PT-LX300 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-LX300.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC L51W is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the PT-LX300 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). The worst resolution of all 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-LX300 is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The lamp service lives of 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-LX300 range from 2,000h to 20,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,700h. With a lamp service life of 10,000 hours, the PT-LX300's lamp service life is one of the longest amongst projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-LX300.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

At only 29 decibels, the Panasonic PT-LX300 has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other data projectors of this type and age. The quietest noise level in economy mode of 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-LX300 is 28dB and the loudest is 39dB.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The PT-LX300 is quite light (only 2.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age. The weights of data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-LX300 range from 1.2kg to 28kg.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Data projectors of this spec and age have widths of between 220mm and 540mm. With a width of only 286 millimeters, the Panasonic PT-LX300 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-LX300.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PT-LX300 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-LX300 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the L51W, or the NP-P451 ($1,451.18) both from NEC which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Panasonic PT-LX300 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-LX300 also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the NEC L51W is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support Full HD projection. The PT-LX300 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 190 Watts, the PT-LX300 has one of the smaller lamp power amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PT-LX300 the lamp power range from 180W to 380W, and the average lamp power is 230W.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

Data projectors of this age and spec have RMS rated power of between 2W and 16W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W. The PT-LX300 has a quite low RMS rated power (only 2 Watts) compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

Data projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-LX300 have matrix sizes of between 0.55" and 0.65". At only 0.55 inches, the Panasonic PT-LX300 has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-LX300.

4 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-LX300

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Panasonic released the PT-LX300.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 34 decibels, the PT-LX300 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Hitachi CPAW252WNM (34dB).

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-LX300 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-LX300.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the NEC P401 ($1,163.64) (3,300 ANSI lumens).
