6 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Data projectors made by Panasonic have an average rating of 91%, which is in the top 1% of all projector manufacturers that we have looked at.

Running Costs Are Low

The PT-CX301 is in the cheapest 16% of all 13 data projectors that have been around for more than two years that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the PT-CX301 will cost £113 over 1 year to run.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Panasonic PT-CX301 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PT-CX301.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Viewsonic PRO8520HD[plb_1610101_price], the Optoma FX5200[plb_1711424_price], and the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The PT-CX301 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the 8000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago. Most of the projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-CX301 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, however this projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of 4,000 hours, the PT-CX301 has one of the longer service life of lamps amongst data projectors of this age. The average service life of lamp of 8000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 5,400h.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This data projector has a 10 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data rates on projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The PT-CX301 does not support 3D, unlike most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-CX301 which support 3D.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D to this multimedia projector and we think the Optoma FX5200[plb_1711424_price], or the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The PT-CX301 does not support full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-CX301 also do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Viewsonic PRO8520HD[plb_1610101_price], or the Sony VPL-FHZ55[plb_1596654_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Panasonic PT-CX301 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-CX301 also do not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support wi-Fi including the DELL S520[plb_2464459_price].

4 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-CX301

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Panasonic released the PT-CX301.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the PT-CX301 has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-CX301.

We compared this projector to all the other 37dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] is also worth considering.

Average Projector Brightness

The PT-CX301 has a relatively standard projector brightness (3,100 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

There are a number of alternative 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price].

If this Panasonic projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the IN3134a[pl_2544144_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the IN3136a[pl_2544145_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Infocus.
