4 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic PTEX16KU

29% Bigger Bulb Power

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a bulb power of 380. That's 150W bigger than the Benq MX711 (230W) and 105W bigger than the Epson VS350 and 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, but the Benq MX711, the Epson VS350, the Optoma PK301 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 Benq MX711 and the Sony VPLFX35), 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 is the Epson VS350), but the Benq MX711, the Optoma PK301 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.

11 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 MX711 and the Sony VPLFX35, however the Epson VS350 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 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 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.

Only Low (2500:1) Contrast Ratio

The Panasonic PTEX16KU has a low (2500:1) contrast ratio (as are the Optoma PK301 and the Sony VPLFX35), but the Benq MX711 has a medium contrast ratio and the Epson VS350 has 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. That's 1,500h shorter than the Benq MX711 (3,500h), 4,000h shorter than the Epson VS350 (6,000h), 18,000h shorter than the Optoma PK301 (20,000h) 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), whereas the Benq MX711, the Epson VS350 and the Optoma PK301 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 83, the Optoma PK301 scored 78 and the Sony VPLFX35 scored 72.

$6,570 More Expensive

The Panasonic PTEX16KU is more expensive than the Benq MX711 by $6,096, more expensive than the Epson VS350 by $6,570 and more expensive than the Sony VPLFX35 by $4,066.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 shop sell the Panasonic PTEX16KU, but 6 retailers sell the Epson VS350. More ...

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this projector, the lower the competition amongst retailers 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.

591% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

Over five years the running costs of the Panasonic PTEX16KU are $470 which is $402 more than the Benq MX711 and $331 more than the Sony VPLFX35. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Panasonic projectors have an average rating of only 67%, but Benq has an average rating of 93.9%, Epson has an average rating of 95%, Optoma has an average rating of 94.1% and Sony has an average rating of 92.6%.

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.

1 Reason For for Choosing the Sony VPLFX35

Ethernet LAN

The Sony VPLFX35 has an Ethernet LAN, and so do the Benq MX711 and the Panasonic PTEX16KU, whereas the Epson VS350 and the Optoma PK301 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.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony VPLFX35

Only 1024 X 768 (XGA) Resolution

The Sony VPLFX35 has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA) (as are the Benq MX711 and the Panasonic PTEX16KU), but the Epson VS350 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.

7% Louder Noise Level

The Sony VPLFX35 is a 31 projector. That's 1dB quieter than the Benq MX711 (32dB), 6dB quieter than the Epson VS350 (37dB), 2dB louder than the Optoma PK301 (29dB) and 20dB quieter than the Panasonic PTEX16KU (51dB). 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 Sony VPLFX35 has a low (2000:1) contrast ratio, and so are the Optoma PK301 and the Panasonic PTEX16KU, which is half as high contrast ratio as the Benq MX711 (medium) and half as high contrast ratio as the Epson VS350 (high). 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 Sony VPLFX35 has a projector brightness of 5, however the Benq MX711 is a 3,200 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (1,800 ANSI lumens dimmer), the Epson VS350 is a 3,700 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (1,300 ANSI lumens dimmer), the Optoma PK301 is a 100 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (4,900 ANSI lumens dimmer) and the Panasonic PTEX16KU is a 16,000 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (11,000 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.

A Lot Smaller Bulb Power

Sony VPLFX35 is only 275 lamp power (as does the Epson VS350), but the Benq MX711 is a 230W lamp power projector (45W smaller) and the Panasonic PTEX16KU is a 380W lamp power projector (105W bigger). 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.

17,000h Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Sony VPLFX35 is a 3 lamp service life projector, whereas the Benq MX711 is a 3,500h lamp service life projector (500h longer), the Epson VS350 is a 6,000h lamp service life projector (3,000h longer), the Optoma PK301 is a 20,000h lamp service life projector (17,000h longer) and the Panasonic PTEX16KU is a 2,000h lamp service life projector (1,000h shorter). 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 VPLFX35 does not support full HD (As do the the Benq MX711, the Epson VS350 and the Optoma PK301), however the Panasonic PTEX16KU does. More ...
