4 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic PTEX16KU

Bigger Bulb Power

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a bulb power of 380. That's 150W bigger than the Benq MX711 (230W), 105W bigger than the Epson VS350 (275W) and 180W bigger than the Sony VPLHW30ES (200W). 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, and so does the Sony VPLHW30ES, but the Benq MX711, the Epson VS350 and the Optoma PK301 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 Benq MX711 and the Sony VPLHW30ES), but the Epson VS350 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 Epson VS350 and the Sony VPLHW30ES), but the Benq MX711 and the Optoma PK301 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.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic PTEX16KU

3 Times Lower Resolution

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA), and so is the Benq MX711, which is 3 times lower resolution as the Sony VPLHW30ES (1920 x 1080 (1080p)). 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.

A Lot Louder Noise Level

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a noise level of 51, whereas the Benq MX711 is a 32dB projector (19dB quieter), the Epson VS350 is a 37dB projector (14dB quieter), the Optoma PK301 is a 29dB projector (22dB quieter) and the Sony VPLHW30ES is a 22dB projector (29dB 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.

Only Low (2500:1) Contrast Ratio

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a low (2500:1) contrast ratio (as is the Optoma PK301), but the Benq MX711 has a medium contrast ratio and the Epson VS350 and the Sony VPLHW30ES have a high 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.

Shorter Service Life of Lamp

Panasonic PTEX16KU is only 2 lamp service life, and so does the Sony VPLHW30ES. That's 1,500h shorter than the Benq MX711 (3,500h), 4,000h shorter than the Epson VS350 (6,000h) and 18,000h shorter than the Optoma PK301 (20,000h). 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, whereas the Benq MX711, the Epson VS350, the Optoma PK301 and the Sony VPLHW30ES 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, whereas the Benq MX711 scored 75, the Epson VS350 scored 84, the Optoma PK301 scored 72 and the Sony VPLHW30ES scored 78.

$6,815 More Expensive

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is more expensive than the Benq MX711 by $6,555, more expensive than the Epson VS350 by $6,815, more expensive than the Optoma PK301 by $6,068 and more expensive than the Sony VPLHW30ES by $6,280.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 seller sell the Panasonic PTEX16KU, but 5 shops sell the Epson VS350 and 3 shops sell the Sony VPLHW30ES. More ...

The smaller the number of stores that stock this projector, the lower the competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
Over Four Years Older

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is older than the Benq MX711 by seven months and older than the Epson VS350 by four years.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 670%

The running costs over five years of the Panasonic PTEX16KU are $496 which is $424 more than the Benq MX711 and $432 more than the Sony VPLHW30ES. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Panasonic projectors have an average rating of only 68%, but Benq has an average rating of 92.5%, Epson has an average rating of 95%, Optoma has an average rating of 94.4% and Sony has an average rating of 92.5%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the PTEX16KU in the US is $7,245.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Optoma PK301

Card Reader Integrated

The Optoma PK301 has a card reader integrated, but the Benq MX711, the Epson VS350, the Panasonic PTEX16KU and the Sony VPLHW30ES do not have this feature. More ...

'Card Reader Integrated' denotes whether the projector comes with an inbuilt reader for memory cards or not.

A memory card is a good way to easily load a film into the projector to watch, without having to hook it up to a computer first.

Built-in Speaker

The Optoma PK301 has a built-in speaker (as do the Benq MX711 and the Epson VS350), whereas the Panasonic PTEX16KU and the Sony VPLHW30ES do 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.

1 Expert Review Site Gave It a Higher Review Score

Projectorcentral.com all gave the Optoma PK301 a better review score. More ...

Projectorcentral.com: Optoma PK301 = 85% vs Sony VPLHW30ES = 78%

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Optoma PK301

Only 854 X 480 (WVGA) Resolution

The Optoma PK301 has a projector native resolution of 854 x 480 (WVGA), which is half as high resolution as the Benq MX711 and the Panasonic PTEX16KU (1024 x 768 (XGA)), half as high resolution as the Epson VS350 (1280 x 800 (WXGA)) and 5 times lower resolution as the Sony VPLHW30ES (1920 x 1080 (1080p)). 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.

20% Louder Noise Level

The Optoma PK301 has a noise level of 29, however the Benq MX711 is a 32dB projector (3dB louder), the Epson VS350 is a 37dB projector (8dB louder), the Panasonic PTEX16KU is a 51dB projector (22dB louder) and the Sony VPLHW30ES is a 22dB projector (7dB 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.

Lower Contrast Ratio

The Optoma PK301 has a low (3000:1) contrast ratio (as is the Panasonic PTEX16KU), whereas the Benq MX711 has a medium contrast ratio and the Epson VS350 and the Sony VPLHW30ES have a high 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.

Vastly Dimmer Projector Brightness

The Optoma PK301 has a projector brightness of 100. That's 3,100 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Benq MX711 (3,200 ANSI Lumens), 3,600 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Epson VS350 (3,700 ANSI Lumens), 15,900 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Panasonic PTEX16KU (16,000 ANSI Lumens) and 1,200 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Sony VPLHW30ES (1,300 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.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma PK301 does not support full HD (As do the the Benq MX711 and the Epson VS350), however the Panasonic PTEX16KU and the Sony VPLHW30ES support this feature. More ...
