4 Reasons For

Panasonic Data Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Projectors produced by Panasonic have an average rating of 90%, which is in the top 1% of all projector manufacturers that we have looked at.

Just Released Eight Months Ago

This data projector is one of the latest multimedia projectors to be released. This means it is likely to use better technology than some of the older multimedia projectors.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 35 decibels, the Panasonic PT-EX520 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst data projectors of this age. The noise levels of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out in the last year range from 28dB to 40dB.

Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the PT-EW550[pl_3431095_price] (35dB), or the PT-EX520EJ[pl_3898813_price] (35dB) both from Panasonic.

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released in the last year the noise levels in economy mode range from 29dB to 36dB. At only 29 decibels, the Panasonic PT-EX520 has a quite quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-EX520.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-EX520, the Panasonic PT-EX520 does not support Full HD projection.

Other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the Hitachi CP-CX251N[plb_3690281_price], or the Panasonic PT-EW550[plb_3431095_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PT-EX520 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other recently released 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider include the EB-G7000W[pl_3419529_price], or the EB-G7800[pl_3710140_price] both from Epson or the Canon WUX450ST[plb_3584068_price].

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PT-EX520 does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out in the last year also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Panasonic PT-EW550[plb_3431095_price] is also worth considering.

Very High Running Costs

The PT-EX520 is in the most expensive 15% of all 14 latest data projectors that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the PT-EX520 is £195.

Chart

Very Small Display Diagonal

The display diagonals of projectors that were launched in the last 12 months range from 0.63" to 12". The PT-EX520 has a quite small display diagonal (only 0.63 inches) compared to most of the other new data projectors.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption During PowerSave

The lowest power consumption during PowerSave of projectors that were launched in the last 12 months is 0.4W, the highest is 400W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 140W. With a power consumption during PowerSave of 305 Watts, the PT-EX520 has one of the higher power consumption during PowerSave amongst similar spec projectors of this age.
