That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. This data projector also support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-VX42 graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago have matrix sizes of between 0.55" and 0.65". The Panasonic PT-VX42 has a quite big matrix size (0.63 inches) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-VX42.

Chart Edit

Six Audio in Ports

The Panasonic PT-VX42 has more audio in ports than most of the similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-VX42. This Panasonic projector is a six audio in port projector compared to most of the projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PT-VX42 which only have between one and five audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

At only 29 decibels, the Panasonic PT-VX42 has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The noise levels in economy mode of comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-VX42 range from 28dB to 39dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the PT-VX42 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Panasonic PT-VX42 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might also want to consider including the L51W[pl_1496151_price], or the NP-P451[pl_1547970_price] both from NEC which is also higher rated.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price] which also has a higher rating.
