5 Reasons For

Panasonic Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

On average Panasonic data projectors are rated 90 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of this type and age, the PT-CX300 supports 3D image projection.

Alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to consider include the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other data projectors of this spec and age, the PT-CX300 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the PT-CX300 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-CX300. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 720 x 400, 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1080 (HD 1080)) is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-CX300.

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

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This data projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is typical of many multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to it.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Panasonic PT-CX300 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Viewsonic PRO8520HD[plb_1610101_price], or the Sony VPL-FHZ55[plb_1596654_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-CX300 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Panasonic PT-CX300 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

High Running Costs

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the PT-CX300 is £154, which makes it one of the more expensive to run data projectors of this age and type.

Very Small Matrix Size

8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-CX300 have matrix sizes of between 0.55" and 0.95". The Panasonic PT-CX300 has one of the smaller matrix sizes (only 0.55 inches) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.

4 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-CX300

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this multimedia projector was released.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the Panasonic PT-CX300 has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-CX300.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level projectors to this data projector and we think the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the PT-CX300 has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

We compared all the other 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] is also worth considering.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the IN3134a[pl_2544144_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the IN3136a[pl_2544145_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Infocus.
