4 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Projectors built by Panasonic generally have excellent ratings compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Panasonic PT-VX420 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PT-VX420.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think cheaper data projectors such as the Hitachi CPWX3541WN[plb_3869046_price] is also worth considering.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the Hitachi CP -AX2505[plb_3406374_price], or the NEC M333XS[plb_3113388_price] is also worth considering.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PT-VX420 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-VX420 do support 3D image projection.

Alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider include the Acer H6517[plb_2825633_price]; or the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price].

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The PT-VX420 does not support Full HD projection, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PT-VX420 which support Full HD projection.

Alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price]; or the Acer H6517[plb_2825633_price].

3 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-VX420

Released Over a Year Ago

This multimedia projector was released over a year ago.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the PT-VX420 has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-VX420.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Epson EB-965H[plb_2902129_price] is also worth considering.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price] (36dB) which also has a higher rating.
