6 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic PTEX16KU

Low (2500:1) Contrast Ratio

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a low (2500:1) contrast ratio (as are the Benq SP870, the Epson PowerLite 1751 and the Sony VPLFX35), whereas the NEC NP4100 only has a very 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.

Bigger Bulb Power

Panasonic PTEX16KU is 380W lamp power. That's 20W bigger than the Benq SP870 (360W), 150W bigger than the Epson PowerLite 1751 (230W), 100W bigger than the NEC NP4100 (280W) and 105W bigger than the Sony VPLFX35 (275W). 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, whereas the Benq SP870, the Epson PowerLite 1751, the NEC NP4100 and the Sony VPLFX35 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 NEC NP4100 and the Sony VPLFX35), whereas the Benq SP870 and the Epson PowerLite 1751 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 Benq SP870 and the Epson PowerLite 1751), whereas the NEC NP4100 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.

13 Months Newer

The Panasonic PTEX16KU was released two years later than the Benq SP870, released 13 months later than the Epson PowerLite 1751, released three years later than the NEC NP4100 and released three years later than the Sony VPLFX35

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic PTEX16KU

Lower Resolution

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA), and so are the Benq SP870 and the Epson PowerLite 1751, but the NEC NP4100 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.

A Lot Louder Noise Level

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a noise level of 51dB, however the Benq SP870 is a 36dB projector (15dB quieter), the Epson PowerLite 1751 is a 40dB projector (11dB quieter), the NEC NP4100 is a 38dB projector (13dB quieter) and the Sony VPLFX35 is a 31dB projector (20dB 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.

2,000h Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is a 2h lamp service life projector, and so do the Benq SP870 and the NEC NP4100. That's 2,000h shorter than the Epson PowerLite 1751 (4,000h) and 1,000h shorter than the Sony VPLFX35 (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 (As does the the Sony VPLFX35), however the Benq SP870, the Epson PowerLite 1751 and the NEC NP4100 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, however the Benq SP870 scored 83, the Epson PowerLite 1751 scored 76, the NEC NP4100 scored 71 and the Sony VPLFX35 scored 74.

$5,695 More Expensive

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is more expensive than the Benq SP870 by $5,695, more expensive than the Epson PowerLite 1751 by $5,500, more expensive than the NEC NP4100 by $4,227 and more expensive than the Sony VPLFX35 by $3,195.

Less Retailers

Only 1 seller sell the Panasonic PTEX16KU, whereas 2 sellers sell the Sony VPLFX35. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this projector and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 513%

Over five years the Panasonic PTEX16KU costs $498 to run which is $406 more than the Benq SP870, $417 more than the NEC NP4100 and $351 more than the Sony VPLFX35. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Panasonic projectors have an average rating of only 68.3%, whereas Benq has an average rating of 91.6%, Epson has an average rating of 95%, NEC has an average rating of 88.2% and Sony has an average rating of 94.4%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the PTEX16KU in the US is $5,995.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Benq SP870

Higher Contrast Ratio

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony VPLFX35

4 Reasons For for Choosing the NEC NP4100

1280 X 800 (WXGA) Resolution

The NEC NP4100 has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA), but the Benq SP870, the Epson PowerLite 1751 and the Panasonic PTEX16KU have a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and the Sony VPLFX35 only has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768. 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.

Ethernet LAN

The NEC NP4100 has an Ethernet LAN, and so do the Panasonic PTEX16KU and the Sony VPLFX35, whereas the Benq SP870 and the Epson PowerLite 1751 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.

Built-in Speaker

The NEC NP4100 has a built-in speaker, and so do the Benq SP870 and the Epson PowerLite 1751, whereas the Panasonic PTEX16KU and the Sony VPLFX35 do not. 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.

84% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the NEC NP4100 is $11 cheaper to run than the Benq SP870, $417 cheaper to run than the Panasonic PTEX16KU and $66 cheaper to run than the Sony VPLFX35. More ...

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the NEC NP4100

16% Louder Noise Level

The NEC NP4100 is a 38dB projector. That's 2dB louder than the Benq SP870 (36dB), 2dB quieter than the Epson PowerLite 1751 (40dB), 13dB quieter than the Panasonic PTEX16KU (51dB) and 7dB 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 NEC NP4100 has a very low (1000:1) contrast ratio, which is half as high contrast ratio as the Benq SP870, the Epson PowerLite 1751, the Panasonic PTEX16KU and the Sony VPLFX35 (low). 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 NEC NP4100 has a projector brightness of 6 ANSI lumens, however the Benq SP870 and the Sony VPLFX35 are both 5,000 ANSI Lumens brightness projectors (1,200 ANSI lumens dimmer), the Epson PowerLite 1751 is a 2,600 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (3,600 ANSI lumens dimmer) and the Panasonic PTEX16KU is a 16,000 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (9,800 ANSI lumens brighter). 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.

100W Smaller Bulb Power

NEC NP4100 is only 280W lamp power, but the Benq SP870 is a 360W lamp power projector (80W bigger), the Epson PowerLite 1751 is a 230W lamp power projector (50W smaller), the Panasonic PTEX16KU is a 380W lamp power projector (100W bigger) and the Sony VPLFX35 is a 275W lamp power projector (5W 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 NEC NP4100 is a 2h lamp service life projector (as do the Benq SP870 and the Panasonic PTEX16KU), whereas the Epson PowerLite 1751 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The NEC NP4100 has only received a Kagoo Score of 71, however the Benq SP870 scored 83, the Epson PowerLite 1751 scored 76 and the Sony VPLFX35 scored 74.

More Expensive by $1,468

The NEC NP4100 is $1,468 more expensive than the Benq SP870 and $1,273 more expensive than the Epson PowerLite 1751.

Less Retailers

The NEC NP4100 is only stocked by 1 seller, whereas the Sony VPLFX35 is stocked by 2 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this projector remaining in stock.
Older by Over Two Years

The NEC NP4100 is seven months older than the Benq SP870, 19 months older than the Epson PowerLite 1751 and three years older than the Panasonic PTEX16KU.

Worse Brand

NEC projectors have an average rating of only 88.2%, whereas Benq has an average rating of 91.6%, Epson has an average rating of 95% and Sony has an average rating of 94.4%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the NP4100 in the US is $1,768.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
