8 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Data projectors produced by Panasonic generally have excellent ratings.

Supports Full HD Projection

The PT-VX500 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PT-VX500 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-VX500 also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The PT-VX500 has one of the brightest projector brightness (5,000 ANSI lumens) amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The projector brightness of 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the PT-VX500 range from 500 ANSI lumens to 13,000 ANSI lumens.

There are a number of alternative 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the NEC P501X[plb_1555276_price].

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Panasonic PT-EX12KE[plb_1870036_price] (13,000 ANSI lumens).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Panasonic PT-VX500 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-VX500. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this Panasonic multimedia projector support a graphics resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD 720) and 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is actually the best supported resolution across all data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-VX500.

Across similar types of data projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Fairly Big Lamp Power

Across all the 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-VX500 the lamp power range from 180W to 380W. The PT-VX500 has a fairly big lamp power (280 Watts) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Wired Connectivity

This multimedia projector supports a Wired connectivity, which is the most frequently supported connectivity on comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to it.

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 frequently found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PT-VX500 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the L51W[pl_1496151_price], or the NP-P451[pl_1547970_price] both from NEC which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Panasonic PT-VX500 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support 3D image projection.

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

Very Dim Lamp Power in Economic Mode

The PT-VX500 has one of the dimmer lamp powers in economic mode (only 1 Watt) amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The dimmest lamp power in economic mode of projectors of this age and type is 1W, the brightest is 160W, and the average lamp power in economic mode is 120W.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The PT-VX500 has a quite low maximum horizontal synchronization (only 80 kilohertz) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age. The average maximum horizontal synchronization of similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago is 99kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

At only 140 megahertz, the PT-VX500 has a quite slow dot clock scanning frequency compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-VX500. The slowest dot clock scanning frequency of 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 140MHz, the fastest is 170MHz, and the average dot clock scanning frequency is 160MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

At only 2,500 hours, the PT-VX500 has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. The lamp service lives of projectors of this spec and age range from 2,000h to 20,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,700h.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

The noise levels of 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 29dB to 42dB. The PT-VX500 has a fairly loud noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level data projectors to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-P451[plb_1547970_price] is also worth considering.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The average service life of lamp in economic mode of 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-VX500 is 5,800h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 4,000 hours, the PT-VX500 has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The PT-VX500 is one of the heavier comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-VX500 (4.8 kilograms) amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Across all the 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-VX500 the weights range from 1.2kg to 28kg, and the average weight is 4.2kg.
