4 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Multimedia projectors manufactured by Panasonic generally have excellent ratings.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the PT-LB280E, the Panasonic PT-LB280E has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

The dot clock scanning frequencies of data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-LB280E range from 20MHz to 170MHz. With a dot clock scanning frequency of 162 megahertz, the Panasonic PT-LB280E has one of the fastest dot clock scanning frequencies amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The service life of lamp in economic mode of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-LB280E range from 1,000h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,400h. At 8,000 hours, the PT-LB280E has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-LB280E.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PT-LB280E does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support Full HD projection. The Panasonic PT-LB280E is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PT-LB280E does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated power of projectors of this spec and age range from 1W to 20W. With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Panasonic PT-LB280E has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The Panasonic PT-LB280E is a one VGA (D-Sub) port data projector.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PT-LB280E have between one and two HDMI ports, including the PT-LB280E which has one HDMI port.

5 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-LB280E

Released Over Two Years Ago

Panasonic released the PT-LB280E over two years ago.

Average Running Costs

The PT-LB280E is typical compared to the other 136 comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the PT-LB280E is £141.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the Panasonic PT-LB280E has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-LB280E.

Other 37dB noise level projectors currently available that you might want to consider include the Epson EB-X24[plb_2017451_price] which has better reviews.
