7 Reasons For

Panasonic Multimedia Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Multimedia projectors manufactured by Panasonic have an average rating of 90%, which is in the top 1% of all projector brands that we have looked at.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

Unlike most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years which do not support WiFi connectivity, the Panasonic PT-VX505NE supports WiFi connectivity.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors which support WiFi connectivity and we think the L51W[pl_1496151_price], and the NP-P451[pl_1547970_price] both from NEC which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Panasonic PT-VX505NE has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-VX505NE.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago have projector brightness of between 500 ANSI lumens and 13,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,700 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 5,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-VX505NE has one of the brightest projector brightness amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including the NEC P501X[plb_1555276_price] which has better reviews.

If this 4000:1 contrast ratio data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-EX12KE[plb_1870036_price] (13,000 ANSI lumens).
