4 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Projector Reviews

Panasonic is one of the top rated projector brands according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Low Running Costs

The PT-CX301 has an average 1 year running cost of £113 based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 20% of all 10 comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PT-CX301 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-CX301 also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to consider including the Optoma FX5200 (£546.60) which has a better Rating.

4 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-CX301

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Panasonic released the PT-CX301.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the PT-CX301 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-CX301.

Chart Edit

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the PT-CX301 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) currently available including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Sony VPL-EX295 or you might consider a better rated multimedia projector such as the X305 (£494.99), or the FX5200 (£546.60) both from Optoma.

If the resolution of this data projector is not high enough for you then you might also want to look at the Epson EH-TW550 (£526.06) (720p (1280x720 and cheaper) and cheaper), or the Optoma HD6720 (WXGA (1280x720 and cheaper) and cheaper) or the Benq W770ST (£460.02) (WXGA (1280x720 and higher rated) and higher rated).
