7 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

On average multimedia projectors from Panasonic are rated 90 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all data projector brands that we have analysed.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Panasonic PT-LX300 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The PT-LX300 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this Panasonic data projector).

This projector's resolution (1600 x 1200 (UXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all data projectors of this spec and age.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of projector.

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

When compared to other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago that we have checked the lamp service life of, the Panasonic PT-LX300's lamp service life of 10,000 hours is one of the longest. Similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-LX300 have lamp service lives of between 2,000h and 20,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,600h.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The Panasonic PT-LX300 has a quite quiet noise level in economy mode (only 29 decibels) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-LX300. The quietest noise level in economy mode of 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 28dB, the loudest is 39dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.

Light

With a weight of only 2.3 kilograms, the PT-LX300 is quite light compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago. 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-LX300 have weights of between 3.4g and 28kg.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Panasonic PT-LX300 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PT-LX300, the Panasonic PT-LX300 does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-LX300 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Panasonic PT-LX300 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider including the L51W[pl_1496151_price], or the NP-P451[pl_1547970_price] both from NEC which is also higher rated.
