3 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

We checked the expert and user reviews of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each data projector brand. On average Panasonic projectors have excellent reviews from experts and users.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The PT-LX22 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by data projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-LX22. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this Panasonic multimedia projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 480, 768 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 960, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+), 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is in fact the best supported resolution across all 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PT-LX22.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution across similar types of multimedia projector.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The PT-LX22 has a quite quiet noise level (only 34.1 decibels) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-LX22. The average noise level of projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-LX22 is 35dB.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Canon LV-7292 (£344.10) (36.4dB).

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most projectors of this age and type do not support full HD. The PT-LX22 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Optoma HD23 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Panasonic PT-LX22 does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PT-LX22 do have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-LX22, the Panasonic PT-LX22 does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PT-LX22 does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Panasonic PT-LX22 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 2,200 ANSI lumens) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age. The average projector brightness of 500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-LX22 is 2,500 ANSI lumens.

If you are looking for a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Optoma HD23 (2,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Quite Slow Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

Projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-LX22 have dot clock scanning frequencys of between 1MHz and 230MHz. With a dot clock scanning frequency of only 140 megahertz, the PT-LX22 has one of the slower dot clock scanning frequencys amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.
