6 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Panasonic projectors have an average rating of 90 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all multimedia projector brands that we have assessed.

Low Running Costs

Based on average usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the PT-CX301 will cost £113 over 1 year to run, which is in the cheapest 16% of all 13 8000:1 contrast ratio data 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 projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-CX301 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the IN3136a[pl_2544145_price], and the IN3134a[pl_2544144_price] both from Infocus or the Optoma FX5200[plb_1711424_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-CX301 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the PT-CX301 has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of 4,000 hours, the PT-CX301 has one of the longer lamp service lives amongst 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The average lamp service life of projectors of this age and spec is 5,400h.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This multimedia projector has a 10 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most commonly found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to it.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PT-CX301 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-CX301 which support 3D image projection.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the IN3136a[pl_2544145_price], or the IN3134a[pl_2544144_price] both from Infocus or the Optoma FX5200[plb_1711424_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The PT-CX301 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PT-CX301 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-CX301 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

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 Noise Level

The Panasonic PT-CX301 has a fairly standard noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-CX301.

Alternative 37dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the IN3134a[pl_2544144_price], or the IN3136a[pl_2544145_price] both from Infocus.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the PT-CX301 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-CX301.

If this 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at 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.
