7 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Projector Reviews

Projectors manufactured by Panasonic generally have excellent ratings compared to other brands.

Running Costs Are Very Low

The PT-LX270 has an average 1 year running cost of only £74 based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 7% of all 32 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-LX270, the Panasonic PT-LX270 has a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The PT-LX270 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector).

A 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution across all projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-LX270.

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

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The Panasonic PT-LX270 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 34 decibels) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The quietest noise level of projectors of this age and type is 30dB and the loudest is 42dB.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-VX500[plb_1746995_price] (34dB).

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

Data projectors of this age and spec have service life of lamps of between 2,000h and 20,000h. At 5,000 hours, the PT-LX270 has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-LX270.

Chart Edit

Light

The average weight of similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years is 4kg. At only 2.3 kilograms, the PT-LX270 is quite light compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-LX270, the PT-LX270 does not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The PT-LX270 does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of this spec and age also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support wi-Fi. The Panasonic PT-LX270 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

The PT-LX270 has one of the smaller bulb powers (only 190 Watts) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. The bulb powers of data projectors of this age and spec range from 180W to 380W, and the average bulb power is 230W.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The average RMS rated power of 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PT-LX270 is 11W. The PT-LX270 has one of the lower RMS rated powers (only 2 Watts) amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

The average uniformity of multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-LX270 is 83%, and the uniformitys range from 80% to 90%. The PT-LX270 has a quite small uniformity (only 80 percent) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-LX270.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

At only 162 megahertz, the Panasonic PT-LX270 has a fairly slow dot clock scanning frequency compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PT-LX270. 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PT-LX270 have dot clock scanning frequencys of between 160MHz and 170MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

At only 0.55 inches, the Panasonic PT-LX270 has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-LX270. The average matrix size of 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-LX270 is 0.61", and the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.65".
