Across all the multimedia projectors of this type and age the projector brightnesss range from 20 ANSI lumens to 5,500 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 470 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Optoma DH1009 ($1,117.33) (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the EIKI LC-WXL200 (5,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Two VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The PT-LX30 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-LX30. Most of the battery powered projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-LX30 only have one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity, however this projector has two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Wired Connectivity Technology

This projector supports a Wired connectivity technology, which is typical of many comparable spec data projectors that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

The PT-LX30 has a fairly low power consumption (PowerSave) (only 0.47 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. Across all the data projectors of this spec and age the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.46W to 350W.

8 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This projector received a rating of 60% from projector expert review website pcworld.pl. That puts this battery powered projector in the bottom 34% of all the projectors of a comparable type and age.

Does Not Support 3D

Most multimedia projectors of this type and age do not support 3D. The Panasonic PT-LX30 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the Optoma DH1009 ($1,117.33) is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Panasonic PT-LX30 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support full HD.

Other multimedia projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to consider include the Philips PPX3410/CN, or the Optoma DH1009 ($1,117.33) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other battery powered projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-LX30, the Panasonic PT-LX30 does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the PPX3610, or the PPX3610/CN both from Philips or the Aiptek PocketCinema V150W which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the Benq GP2 (29dB and higher rated), the AAXA Technologies P3 Pico (30dB and higher rated), or the LG PG60 (34dB and higher rated).
