Panasonic PT-EX12KE In-Depth Analysis
Panasonic Projectors Have Excellent Reviews
Panasonic has excellent average reviews for its data projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other manufacturers. 98% of those that bought a Panasonic projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.
Value For Money
After checking the price of 1,099 data projectors they range in price from £106 to £17,495. We think that this data projector looks expensive compared to other data projectors.
Has a DVI Port
The PT-EX12KE has a DVI port, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors do not have a DVI port.
Quite Big Bulb Power
At 380 Watts, the PT-EX12KE has a fairly big bulb power compared to most of the other projectors. Data projectors have bulb powers of between 3.5W and 3,000W, and the average bulb power is 250W.
1024 X 768 Resolution
The highest resolution of the PT-EX12KE is 1024 x 768. That's over three times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of 280 x 800. This projector also has a projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all multimedia projectors the resolution ranges from 280 x 800 (worst) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) (best).
Does Not Support Full HD
The Panasonic PT-EX12KE does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors also do not support full HD.
Quite Bright Projector Brightness
The PT-EX12KE has one of the brightest projector brightnesses (13,000 ANSI lumens) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors is 12 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 85,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,700 ANSI lumens.
Quite Loud Noise Level
The noise levels of data projectors range from 10dB to 93dB. The noise level of the Panasonic PT-EX12KE of 42 decibels is one of the loudest amongst multimedia projectors.
The PT-EX12KE is not HD-Ready, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors which are HD-Ready.
Very Short Service Life of Lamp
At only 2,000 hours, the Panasonic PT-EX12KE has a quite short service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors. The shortest service life of lamp of multimedia projectors is 20h, the longest is 40,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 6,700h.
Released Over Four Years Ago
It was January 2013 when Panasonic released the PT-EX12KE.
Running Costs Are High
The PT-EX12KE is one of the more expensive to run projectors that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the PT-EX12KE is £427.
