Panasonic Has Excellent Data Projector Reviews

Panasonic is one of the leading data projector manufacturers according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all multimedia projectors. 100% of those that bought a Panasonic data projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Other

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was August 2013 when Panasonic released the PT-CX300.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-CX300 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of its better review score, the Panasonic PTCW330U is also worth considering.

Performance

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the PT-CX300 has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as this multimedia projector.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 37dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think because of its better review score, the Panasonic PTCW330U is also worth considering.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The PT-CX300 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector also do not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support full HD including the Infocus IN3138 (£725.98), or the Sony VPL-FHZ55 (£1,932.36).

3D-Ready

The PT-CX300 is 3D-ready, as are most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Projector

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the Panasonic PT-CX300 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Panasonic PTCW330U which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the IN3138 (£725.98) (4,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the IN3134a (£512.99) (4,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the IN3136a (£568.98) (4,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated) all from Infocus.
