8 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Multimedia projectors made by Panasonic have an average rating of 90 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all projector brands that we have assessed.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PT-TX300 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-TX300 also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to consider including the NEC L51W which has better reviews.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The PT-TX300 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector. Most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

Across all the projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-TX300 the dot clock scanning frequencies range from 140MHz to 170MHz, and the average dot clock scanning frequency is 160MHz. When compared to other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the dot clock scanning frequency of the PT-TX300 of 165 megahertz is one of the fastest.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At 7,500 hours, the Panasonic PT-TX300 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the PT-TX300. The average service life of lamp in economic mode of 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PT-TX300 is 5,800h.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most commonly found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The average weight of 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-TX300 is 4.2kg, and the weights range from 1.2kg to 28kg. At only 2.5 kilograms, the PT-TX300 is fairly light compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-TX300.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Projectors that came out more than two years ago have widths of between 220mm and 540mm. The PT-TX300 is one of the narrower projectors that were released more than two years ago (only 288 millimeters) amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Panasonic PT-TX300 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-TX300 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the L51W, or the NP-P451 ($1,451.18) both from NEC is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most multimedia projectors of this age and spec do not support 3D image projection. The PT-TX300 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider including the NEC L51W which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other projectors of this spec and age, the PT-TX300 does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The PT-TX300 has one of the shorter lamp service lives (only 3,000 hours) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The lamp service lives of projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-TX300 range from 2,000h to 20,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

At only 80 percent, the PT-TX300 has a fairly small uniformity compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-TX300. 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-TX300 have uniformities of between 80% and 90%.

Chart Edit

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-TX300 is 2W, the highest is 16W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W. At only 8 Watts, the PT-TX300 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-TX300.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

Across all the 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PT-TX300 the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.65". The PT-TX300 has one of the smaller matrix sizes (only 0.55 inches) amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

4 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-TX300

Released Over Three Years Ago

This 4000:1 contrast ratio data projector was released over three years ago.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 36 decibels, the PT-TX300 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-TX300.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

The PT-TX300 has a pretty average projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-TX300.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the NEC P401 ($1,164.64) (3,300 ANSI lumens).
