7 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Panasonic is one of the best projector manufacturers according to average owner and expert review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Supports Wi-Fi

The PT-VX505NE supports wi-Fi, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-VX505NE do not support wi-Fi.

There are a number of other projectors which support wi-Fi currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the L51W, or the NP-P401W ($1,108.65) both from NEC.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-VX505NE has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PT-VX505NE also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-VX505NE is 500 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 13,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,700 ANSI lumens. At 5,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-VX505NE has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PT-VX505NE.

Other 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available that you might also want to consider include the NEC P501X which has better reviews.

If you want a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-EX12KE (13,000 ANSI lumens).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the PT-VX505NE is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors that came out more than two years ago. This projector also supports a supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA). The resolution of all multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-VX505NE ranges from 640 x 400 (worst) to 4096 x 2160 (best).

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Bulb Power

4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago have bulb powers of between 180W and 380W. With a bulb power of 280 Watts, the PT-VX505NE has a very big bulb power compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-VX505NE.

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This data projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is typical of many projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-VX505NE, the PT-VX505NE does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Most 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support 3D. The PT-VX505NE is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support 3D including the NEC L51W which also has a higher rating.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

Comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-VX505NE have service life of lamps of between 2,000h and 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,500h. At only 2,500 hours, the PT-VX505NE has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-VX505NE.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the Panasonic PT-VX505NE has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-VX505NE. Projectors of this age and spec have noise levels of between 30dB and 42dB.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 37dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-P451 ($1,451.18).

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-VX505NE range from 3,000h to 8,500h. At only 4,000 hours, the PT-VX505NE has a fairly short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-VX505NE.

Heavy

The average weight of multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-VX505NE is 4.1kg. The PT-VX505NE is one of the heavier projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-VX505NE (4.8 kilograms) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

At only 162 megahertz, the PT-VX505NE has a fairly slow dot clock scanning frequency compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years. The dot clock scanning frequencys of 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-VX505NE range from 160MHz to 170MHz.
