7 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Projector Reviews

We checked the reviews from experts and owners of hundreds of data projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average projectors manufactured by Panasonic have excellent ratings from experts and owners.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-VX500 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-VX500.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The Panasonic PT-VX500 has a fairly bright projector brightness (5,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-VX500. The dimmest projector brightness of multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 500 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 13,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,700 ANSI lumens.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the NEC P501X[plb_1555276_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this 4000:1 contrast ratio data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-EX12KE[plb_1870036_price] (13,000 ANSI lumens).

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 34 decibels, the PT-VX500 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-VX500. The quietest noise level of projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PT-VX500 is 30dB and the loudest is 42dB.

Chart Edit

Three Audio (L,R) Ins

Most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-VX500 only have between one and two audio (L,R) ins, however the PT-VX500 has three audio (L,R) ins.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data rates on 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Wired Connectivity Technology

This multimedia projector supports a Wired connectivity technology, which is the most commonly supported connectivity technology on projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support wi-Fi. The PT-VX500 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support wi-Fi which you might want to look at including the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago, the Panasonic PT-VX500 does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The PT-VX500 does not support 3D. Most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-VX500 also do not support 3D.

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