7 Reasons For

Panasonic Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

We checked the reviews from experts and owners of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average Panasonic projectors have excellent ratings from experts and users.

Supports Wi-Fi

The Panasonic PT-VX505NE supports wi-Fi, unlike most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-VX505NE which do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Panasonic PT-VX505NE has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PT-VX505NE also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors of this age and spec the projector brightnesss range from 500 ANSI lumens to 13,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 5,000 ANSI lumens, the Panasonic PT-VX505NE has one of the brighter projector brightnesss amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

We compared all the other 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the NEC P501X[plb_1555276_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-EX12KE[plb_1870036_price] (13,000 ANSI lumens).
