6 Reasons For

Panasonic Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Data projectors made by Panasonic have an average rating of 90%, which is in the top 1% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other data projectors that came out more than two years ago, the PT-VX500 has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 5,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-VX500 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The average projector brightness of 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 3,700 ANSI lumens.

We compared this data projector to all the other 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC P501X[plb_1555276_price] is also worth considering.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-EX12KE[plb_1870036_price] (13,000 ANSI lumens).

Three Audio in Ports

The PT-VX500 has more audio in ports than most of the projectors that came out more than two years ago. Most of the data projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-VX500 only have between one and two audio in ports, however this multimedia projector has three audio in ports.

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 multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Wired Connectivity

This multimedia projector supports a Wired connectivity, which is typical of many similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PT-VX500 does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-VX500 also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data 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

The PT-VX500 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-VX500 also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-VX500 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Panasonic PT-VX500 is no exception to this as it too does 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 which also has a higher rating.

Very Dim Lamp Power in Economic Mode

With a lamp power in economic mode of only 1 Watt, the PT-VX500 has a quite dim lamp power in economic mode compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago. The dimmest lamp power in economic mode of 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1W, the brightest is 160W, and the average lamp power in economic mode is 120W.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The PT-VX500 has a quite low maximum horizontal synchronization (only 80 kilohertz) compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago. The maximum horizontal synchronization of projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 80kHz to 110kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 99kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

At only 2,500 hours, the PT-VX500 has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-VX500. The lamp service lives of multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-VX500 range from 2,000h to 20,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The service life of lamp in economic mode of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-VX500 range from 3,000h to 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,000h. At only 4,000 hours, the PT-VX500 has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.
