8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-LX270 do not support 3D image projection. The PT-LX270 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection which you might also want to look at including the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price].

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-LX270 do not support WiFi connectivity. The PT-LX270 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the L51W[pl_1496151_price], or the NP-P451[pl_1547970_price] both from NEC which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
