6 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Projectors produced by Panasonic generally have excellent ratings compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-LX270 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the PT-LX270 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-LX270. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector.

This data projector's resolution (1600 x 1200 (UXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-LX270.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution across comparable types of data projector.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 34 decibels, the PT-LX270 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for more than two years. The noise levels of 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PT-LX270 range from 30dB to 42dB.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

At 5,000 hours, the PT-LX270 has a fairly long service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. Across all the 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-LX270 the service life of lamps range from 2,000h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,500h.

Chart Edit

Light

At only 2.3 kilograms, the PT-LX270 is quite light compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago. The lightest data projector of a similar type and age to the PT-LX270 is 3.4g heavy and the heaviest is 28kg.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-LX270 do not support wi-Fi. The PT-LX270 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most data projectors of this type and age do not support full HD. The Panasonic PT-LX270 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The Panasonic PT-LX270 does not support 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years also do not support 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Very Small Bulb Power

Multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-LX270 have bulb powers of between 180W and 380W. The PT-LX270 has one of the smaller bulb powers (only 190 Watts) amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

At only 2 Watts, the PT-LX270 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-LX270. Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PT-LX270 the RMS rated powers range from 2W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

With a uniformity of only 80 percent, the PT-LX270 has one of the smaller uniformitys amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The uniformitys of data projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-LX270 range from 80% to 90%, and the average uniformity is 83%.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

With a dot clock scanning frequency of only 162 megahertz, the PT-LX270 has one of the slower dot clock scanning frequencys amongst projectors of this age. The dot clock scanning frequencys of projectors of this age and type range from 160MHz to 170MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The smallest optical zoom of similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-LX270 is 1.1x, the biggest is 2.1x, and the average optical zoom is 1.3x. With an optical zoom of only 1.1 times zoom factor, the Panasonic PT-LX270 has one of the smaller optical zooms amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

Across all the 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.65", and the average matrix size is 0.61". At only 0.55 inches, the Panasonic PT-LX270 has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-LX270.
