5 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

We checked the reviews from users and experts of hundreds of data projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average multimedia projectors produced by Panasonic have excellent ratings from users and experts.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PT-VX42 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Uniformity

The Panasonic PT-VX42 has a fairly big uniformity (85 percent) compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PT-VX42. Comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago have uniformities of between 80% and 90%, and the average uniformity is 83%.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is typical of many data projectors of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

With a power consumption in economy mode of only 0.4 Watts, the Panasonic PT-VX42 has one of the lower power consumption in economy mode amongst similar spec projectors of this age. Across all the 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago the power consumption in economy mode range from 0.4W to 300W.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Panasonic PT-VX42 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-VX42 also do not support 3D image projection.

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

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The PT-VX42 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-VX42 also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PT-VX42 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-VX42 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the L51W[pl_1496151_price], or the NP-P451[pl_1547970_price] both from NEC.

Only One Audio in Port

Most data projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-VX42 have between one and two audio in ports, including the PT-VX42 which has one audio in port.

6 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-VX42

Average Running Costs

The PT-VX42 has an average running cost of £163 over 1 year based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 32 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Panasonic released the PT-VX42.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-VX42 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-VX42.

We compared this projector to all the other 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think the NP-P401W[pl_2050694_price], and the NP-P451[pl_1547970_price] both from NEC which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

1024 X 768 (XGA) Graphics Resolution

Chart Edit

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is typical of many similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago.
