3 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic PTEX16KU

Full HD

The Panasonic PTEX16KU supports full HD (as does the DELL 7700), whereas the Benq MX711, the Epson PowerLite 1761W and the Sony VPLFX35 do not support this feature. 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, and so do the Benq MX711, the DELL 7700 and the Sony VPLFX35, whereas the Epson PowerLite 1761W does not. 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 ceiling mountable, and so are the DELL 7700 and the Epson PowerLite 1761W, whereas the Benq MX711 and the Sony VPLFX35 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.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic PTEX16KU

Only 1024 X 768 (XGA) Resolution

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA) (as are the Benq MX711 and the Sony VPLFX35), but the DELL 7700 has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) and the Epson PowerLite 1761W 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.

29% Louder Noise Level

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is a 51 projector. That's 19dB louder than the Benq MX711 (32dB), 12dB louder than the DELL 7700 (39dB), 11dB louder than the Epson PowerLite 1761W (40dB) and 20dB louder than the Sony VPLFX35 (31dB). 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 Panasonic PTEX16KU has a low (2500:1) contrast ratio, and so are the DELL 7700, the Epson PowerLite 1761W and the Sony VPLFX35, which is half as high contrast ratio as the Benq MX711 (medium). 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.

Slightly Smaller Bulb Power

Panasonic PTEX16KU is only 380 lamp power, but the Benq MX711 is a 230W lamp power projector (150W smaller), the DELL 7700 is a 400W lamp power projector (20W bigger), the Epson PowerLite 1761W is a 205W lamp power projector (175W smaller) and the Sony VPLFX35 is a 275W lamp power projector (105W smaller). 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.

2,000h Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is a 2 lamp service life projector, whereas the Benq MX711 is a 3,500h lamp service life projector (1,500h longer), the DELL 7700 is a 1,500h lamp service life projector (500h shorter), the Epson PowerLite 1761W is a 4,000h lamp service life projector (2,000h longer) and the Sony VPLFX35 is a 3,000h lamp service life projector (1,000h longer). 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 (As does the the Sony VPLFX35), however the Benq MX711, the DELL 7700 and the Epson PowerLite 1761W 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has only received a Kagoo Score of 60, however the Benq MX711 scored 77, the DELL 7700 scored 69, the Epson PowerLite 1761W scored 80 and the Sony VPLFX35 scored 72.

More Expensive by $6,370

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is $6,346 more expensive than the Benq MX711, $4,299 more expensive than the DELL 7700, $6,370 more expensive than the Epson PowerLite 1761W and $4,066 more expensive than the Sony VPLFX35.

Less Retailers

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is only stocked by 1 store, whereas the Epson PowerLite 1761W is stocked by 3 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this projector remaining in stock.
Older by Six Months

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is six months older than the Benq MX711.

$393 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

The running costs over five years of the Panasonic PTEX16KU are $460 which is $393 more than the Benq MX711, $256 more than the DELL 7700 and $324 more than the Sony VPLFX35. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Panasonic projectors have an average rating of only 67.2%, whereas Benq has an average rating of 91.4%, DELL has an average rating of 80.7%, Epson has an average rating of 95% and Sony has an average rating of 93.1%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the PTEX16KU in the US is $6,995.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
