11 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the PJ WX4240 is £104, which is in the cheapest 19% of all 53 projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

Unlike most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PJ WX4240 which do not support WiFi connectivity, the PJ WX4240 supports WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the EB-4650[pl_1949829_price], and the EB-4750W[pl_1949826_price] both from Epson is also worth considering.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Epson EB-4850WU[plb_1949825_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PJ WX4240 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for more than two years.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to look at including the PT-VZ570[pl_2843893_price], or the PT-VW535[pl_2843895_price] both from Panasonic which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Epson EB-4850WU[plb_1949825_price].

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago is 4,800 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens. At only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the PJ WX4240 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the PJ WX4240.

If this 5000:1 contrast ratio data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-AX3503[plb_3020951_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens), or the Epson EB-4750W[plb_1949826_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
