4 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic PTEX16KU

A Lot Bigger Bulb Power

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a bulb power of 380W, however the Benq MP610 and the Epson VS210 are both only 200W lamp power projectors (180W smaller), the DELL 4320 is only a 300W lamp power projector (80W smaller) and the Sony VPL-CX235 is only a 245W lamp power projector (135W 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.

Full HD

The Panasonic PTEX16KU supports full HD (as does the Benq MP610), but the DELL 4320, the Epson VS210 and the Sony VPL-CX235 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 DELL 4320 and the Sony VPL-CX235, but the Benq MP610 and the Epson VS210 do 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 Benq MP610, the DELL 4320 and the Epson VS210, but the Sony VPL-CX235 is 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

Only 1024 X 768 (XGA) Resolution

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA) (as is the Sony VPL-CX235), however 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.

27% Louder Noise Level

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is a 51dB projector. That's 18dB louder than the Benq MP610 (33dB), 14dB louder than the DELL 4320 and the Epson VS210 (37dB) and 16dB louder than the Sony VPL-CX235 (35dB). 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, and so are the Benq MP610, the DELL 4320 and the Epson VS210, which is half as high contrast ratio as the Sony VPL-CX235 (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.

Shorter Service Life of Lamp

Panasonic PTEX16KU is only 2h lamp service life (as does the DELL 4320), but the Benq MP610 and the Sony VPL-CX235 are both 3,000h lamp service life projectors (1,000h longer) and the Epson VS210 is a 4,000h lamp service life projector (2,000h 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, whereas the Benq MP610, the DELL 4320, the Epson VS210 and the Sony VPL-CX235 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, whereas the Benq MP610 scored 80, the DELL 4320 scored 76, the Epson VS210 scored 81 and the Sony VPL-CX235 scored 76.

More Expensive by $5,225

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is $5,097 more expensive than the Benq MP610, $4,765 more expensive than the DELL 4320, $5,225 more expensive than the Epson VS210 and $4,295 more expensive than the Sony VPL-CX235.

Older by Nine Months

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is nine months older than the Epson VS210.

$454 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

The Panasonic PTEX16KU costs $514 to run which is $454 more than the Benq MP610, $378 more than the DELL 4320 and $439 more than the Sony VPL-CX235 over five years. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Panasonic projectors have an average rating of only 66.6%, but Benq has an average rating of 91.9%, DELL has an average rating of 78.5%, Epson has an average rating of 95% 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.

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony VPL-CX235

Medium (3100:1) Contrast Ratio

The Sony VPL-CX235 has a medium (3100:1) contrast ratio, but the Benq MP610, the DELL 4320, the Epson VS210 and the Panasonic PTEX16KU have a low 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.

Ethernet LAN

The Sony VPL-CX235 has an Ethernet LAN (as do the DELL 4320 and the Panasonic PTEX16KU), but the Benq MP610 and the Epson VS210 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 Sony VPL-CX235 has a built-in speaker (as do the Benq MP610, the DELL 4320 and the Epson VS210), but 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.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony VPL-CX235

Lower Resolution

The Sony VPL-CX235 has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA), and so is the Panasonic PTEX16KU, however 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.

2dB Louder Noise Level

The Sony VPL-CX235 has a noise level of 35dB, whereas the Benq MP610 is a 33dB projector (2dB quieter), the DELL 4320 and the Epson VS210 are both 37dB projectors (2dB louder) and the Panasonic PTEX16KU is a 51dB projector (16dB louder). 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.

11,900 ANSI Lumens Dimmer Projector Brightness

The Sony VPL-CX235 is a 4 ANSI lumens brightness projector. That's 2,100 ANSI lumens brighter than the Benq MP610 (2,000 ANSI Lumens), 200 ANSI lumens dimmer than the DELL 4320 (4,300 ANSI Lumens), 1,500 ANSI lumens brighter than the Epson VS210 (2,600 ANSI Lumens) and 11,900 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Panasonic PTEX16KU (16,000 ANSI Lumens).

'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.

Shorter Service Life of Lamp

Sony VPL-CX235 is only 3h lamp service life, and so does the Benq MP610. That's 1,000h longer than the DELL 4320 and the Panasonic PTEX16KU (2,000h) and 1,000h shorter than the Epson VS210 (4,000h). 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 Sony VPL-CX235 does not support full HD (As do the the DELL 4320 and the Epson VS210), whereas the Benq MP610 and the Panasonic PTEX16KU support this feature. More ...
