The uniformitys of 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago range from 80% to 90%, and the average uniformity is 83%. The PT-VX42Z has one of the bigger uniformitys (85 percent) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PT-VX42Z, the Panasonic PT-VX42Z does not support 3D.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D that you might want to consider including the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support full HD. The Panasonic PT-VX42Z is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-VX42Z do not support wi-Fi. The Panasonic PT-VX42Z is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

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