6 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Panasonic projectors have an average rating of 90 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all data projector brands that we have assessed.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PT-VW431 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-VW431 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus P2[plb_1731161_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

Data projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-VW431 have projector brightness of between 350 ANSI lumens and 4,800 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 4,300 ANSI lumens, the PT-VW431 has one of the brighter projector brightness amongst 3500:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Panasonic PT-VW431 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-VW431. Most of the projectors that are a similar age to the PT-VW431 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this data projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

At 10 Watts, the PT-VW431 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. The RMS rated power of 3500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PT-VW431 range from 1.5W to 10W, and the average RMS rated power is 6.5W.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This multimedia projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most commonly found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on 3500:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PT-VW431 does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-VW431 also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years, the PT-VW431 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Panasonic PT-VW435N[plb_1788306_price] is also worth considering.

Very Short Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of only 2,500 hours, the PT-VW431 has one of the shorter lamp service lives amongst 3500:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Projectors of this type and age have lamp service lives of between 2,500h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 16,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

The smallest digital zoom of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1.1x, the biggest is 12x, and the average digital zoom is 4x. The Panasonic PT-VW431 has a quite small digital zoom (only 1.6 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-VW431.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

Comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-VW431 have noise levels of between 32dB and 38dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. The PT-VW431 has one of the louder noise levels (37 decibels) amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Other multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Panasonic PT-VW435N[plb_1788306_price] (37dB).

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

The PT-VW431 is one of the less economic to run projectors of a comparable age and type that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the PT-VW431 will cost £210 over 1 year to run.
