4 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic PTEX16KU

33% Bigger Bulb Power

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is a 380W lamp power projector. That's 80W bigger than the DELL 4320 (300W), 180W bigger than the Epson VS210 (200W) and 135W bigger than the Sony VPL-CX235 (245W). More ...

'Bulb Power' denotes how powerful the bulb in the projector is, measured in watts (W).

A more powerful bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Full HD

The Panasonic PTEX16KU supports full HD, however the DELL 4320, the Epson VS210, the Optoma PK301 and the Sony VPL-CX235 do not. More ...

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

Ethernet LAN

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has an Ethernet LAN (as do the DELL 4320 and the Sony VPL-CX235), however the Epson VS210 and the Optoma PK301 do not have this feature. More ...

'Ethernet LAN' denotes whether the projector has the native capability to connect to the local network, in order to receive movie files and the like from your computer.

Ceiling Mountable

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is a ceiling mountable projector (as are the DELL 4320 and the Epson VS210), however the Optoma PK301 and the Sony VPL-CX235 are not. More ...

'Ceiling Mountable' indicates whether the projector is capable of being mounted to the ceiling or not.

Ceiling mounting is the best way of assuring the projector always has a clear line of sight to the projecting surface.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic PTEX16KU

Lower Resolution

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA), and so is the Sony VPL-CX235, whereas the DELL 4320 has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

22dB Louder Noise Level

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a noise level of 51dB, but the DELL 4320 and the Epson VS210 are both 37dB projectors (14dB quieter), the Optoma PK301 is a 29dB projector (22dB quieter) and the Sony VPL-CX235 is a 35dB projector (16dB quieter). More ...

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Half As High Contrast Ratio

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a low (2500:1) contrast ratio (as are the DELL 4320, the Epson VS210 and the Optoma PK301), however the Sony VPL-CX235 has a medium contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

Significantly Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a service life of lamp of 2h, and so does the DELL 4320. That's 2,000h shorter than the Epson VS210 (4,000h), 18,000h shorter than the Optoma PK301 (20,000h) and 1,000h shorter than the Sony VPL-CX235 (3,000h). More ...

'Service Life' indicates how long the lamp in the projector will last before it needs to be replaced, measured in hours.

A longer life lamp means you'll need to replace it far less frequently, saving you money.

Does Not Have a Built-in Speaker

The Panasonic PTEX16KU does not have a built-in speaker, but the DELL 4320, the Epson VS210, the Optoma PK301 and the Sony VPL-CX235 do. More ...

A projector with built in speakers is able to play sound as well as display images.

Built in speakers mean that you don't need a separate amplifier to play sound with the projector image.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has only received a Kagoo Score of 60, but the DELL 4320 scored 76, the Epson VS210 scored 81, the Optoma PK301 scored 80 and the Sony VPL-CX235 scored 76.

$5,225 More Expensive

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is more expensive than the Epson VS210 by $5,225 and more expensive than the Sony VPL-CX235 by $4,295.

Eight Months Older

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is older than the Epson VS210 by eight months.

584% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

The running costs over five years of the Panasonic PTEX16KU are $509 which is $374 more than the DELL 4320 and $435 more than the Sony VPL-CX235. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Panasonic projectors have an average rating of only 66.6%, however DELL has an average rating of 78.5%, Epson has an average rating of 95%, Optoma has an average rating of 93.4% and Sony has an average rating of 90.8%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the PTEX16KU in the US is $5,495.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Card Reader Integrated

The Optoma PK301 has a card reader integrated, however the DELL 4320, the Epson VS210, the Panasonic PTEX16KU and the Sony VPL-CX235 do not have this feature. More ...

7 Reasons For for Choosing the DELL 4320

Higher Resolution

The DELL 4320 has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA), which is twice as high resolution as the Epson VS210 (800 x 600 (SVGA)) and twice as high resolution as the Optoma PK301 (854 x 480 (WVGA)). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

3D

The DELL 4320 supports 3D, whereas the Epson VS210, the Optoma PK301, the Panasonic PTEX16KU and the Sony VPL-CX235 do not. More ...

3D compatible projectors are able to display 3D content. Most projectors will require you to wear special glasses in order to view the 3D effect.

A 3D projector allows you to view the huge range of 3D films and content that is now available.

Wi-Fi

The DELL 4320 supports Wi-Fi, however the Epson VS210, the Optoma PK301, the Panasonic PTEX16KU and the Sony VPL-CX235 do not support this feature. More ...

Wi-Fi projectors can connect to your local WiFi network which means that you display content from other devices connected to the same network.

Wi-Fi projectors allow you display content from other devices connected to the same network without the need to use a cable.

Ethernet LAN

The DELL 4320 has an Ethernet LAN (as do the Panasonic PTEX16KU and the Sony VPL-CX235), however the Epson VS210 and the Optoma PK301 do not have this feature. More ...

'Ethernet LAN' denotes whether the projector has the native capability to connect to the local network, in order to receive movie files and the like from your computer.

Built-in Speaker

The DELL 4320 has a built-in speaker (as do the Epson VS210, the Optoma PK301 and the Sony VPL-CX235), however the Panasonic PTEX16KU does not have this feature. More ...

A projector with built in speakers is able to play sound as well as display images.

Built in speakers mean that you don't need a separate amplifier to play sound with the projector image.

Ceiling Mountable

The DELL 4320 is a ceiling mountable projector (as are the Epson VS210 and the Panasonic PTEX16KU), however the Optoma PK301 and the Sony VPL-CX235 are not. More ...

'Ceiling Mountable' indicates whether the projector is capable of being mounted to the ceiling or not.

Ceiling mounting is the best way of assuring the projector always has a clear line of sight to the projecting surface.

Expert Reviews Are Marginally Better

The average expert review score of the DELL 4320 is 70% based on 1 review, but the average rating of the Optoma PK301 is 69% (based on 16 reviews).

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the DELL 4320

Louder Noise Level

The DELL 4320 has a noise level of 37dB (as does the Epson VS210), but the Optoma PK301 is a 29dB projector (8dB quieter), the Panasonic PTEX16KU is a 51dB projector (14dB louder) and the Sony VPL-CX235 is a 35dB projector (2dB quieter). More ...

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Half As High Contrast Ratio

The DELL 4320 has a low (2000:1) contrast ratio (as are the Epson VS210, the Optoma PK301 and the Panasonic PTEX16KU), however the Sony VPL-CX235 has a medium contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

Dimmer Projector Brightness

DELL 4320 is only 4 ANSI lumens brightness. That's 1,700 ANSI lumens brighter than the Epson VS210 (2,600 ANSI Lumens), 4,200 ANSI lumens brighter than the Optoma PK301 (100 ANSI Lumens), 11,700 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Panasonic PTEX16KU (16,000 ANSI Lumens) and 200 ANSI lumens brighter than the Sony VPL-CX235 (4,100 ANSI Lumens). More ...

'Projector Brightness' is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

80W Smaller Bulb Power

The DELL 4320 is a 300W lamp power projector. That's 100W bigger than the Epson VS210 (200W), 80W smaller than the Panasonic PTEX16KU (380W) and 55W bigger than the Sony VPL-CX235 (245W). More ...

'Bulb Power' denotes how powerful the bulb in the projector is, measured in watts (W).

A more powerful bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Significantly Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The DELL 4320 has a service life of lamp of 2h, and so does the Panasonic PTEX16KU. That's 2,000h shorter than the Epson VS210 (4,000h), 18,000h shorter than the Optoma PK301 (20,000h) and 1,000h shorter than the Sony VPL-CX235 (3,000h). More ...

'Service Life' indicates how long the lamp in the projector will last before it needs to be replaced, measured in hours.

A longer life lamp means you'll need to replace it far less frequently, saving you money.

Does Not Support Full HD

The DELL 4320 does not support full HD (As do the the Epson VS210, the Optoma PK301 and the Sony VPL-CX235), but the Panasonic PTEX16KU supports this feature. More ...

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.
