Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

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

The highest resolution supported by the PT-FX400U is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 576 (WSVGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA). Similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-FX400U graphics resolutions range from 640 x 400 (worst) to 4096 x 2160 (best).

Chart Edit

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Benq SX914[plb_1999632_price].
