4 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Projectors manufactured by Panasonic are some of the best projectors according to average reviews from owners and experts.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-LB280E has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-LB280E.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M322X[plb_2324544_price] is also worth considering.

Very Fast Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

The PT-LB280E has one of the fastest dot clock scanning frequencys (162 megahertz) amongst projectors of this age. The average dot clock scanning frequency of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 81MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of 8,000 hours, the PT-LB280E has a quite long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-LB280E. The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of projectors of this age and spec is 3,500h and the longest is 30,000h.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are Very High

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the PT-LB280E will cost £141 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the most expensive to run 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Does Not Support 3D

The PT-LB280E does not support 3D. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-LB280E also do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The Panasonic PT-LB280E does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-LB280E also do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Panasonic PT-LB280E does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support wi-Fi.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to consider include the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated powers of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-LB280E range from 1W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 8.9W. The PT-LB280E has one of the lower RMS rated powers (only 2 Watts) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The PT-LB280E is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Uniformity

Across all the projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-LB280E the uniformitys range from 0.9% to 100%, and the average uniformity is 83%. The PT-LB280E has a fairly small uniformity (only 80 percent) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-LB280E.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Ports Quantity

The PT-LB280E is a one HDMI ports quantity data projector. Most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-LB280E have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys.
