Other

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was February 2013 when Ricoh released the PJ WX4240.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Ricoh PJ WX4240 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Panasonic PT-VW535 (£1,243.95) which is cheaper.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the EB-4850WU (£1,318.15), or the EB-4650 (£1,319.99) both from Epson are also worth considering.

Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The PJ WX4240 supports Wi-Fi, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec do not support Wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Wi-Fi and we think the Epson EB-4850WU (£1,318.15) is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to this data projector, the PJ WX4240 does not support full HD.

Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider include the EB-4850WU (£1,318.15), or the EB-4950WU (£1,399.99) both from Epson or the Panasonic PT-VZ570 (£1,235.98).

HD-Ready

The PJ WX4240 is HD-Ready. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as this data projector also are HD-Ready.

Projector

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The Ricoh PJ WX4240 has a quite dim projector brightness (only 3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago. 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as this data projector have projector brightnesses of between 2,000 ANSI lumens and 85,000 ANSI lumens.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-TW3003 (£103.76) (3,300 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the Epson EB-4750W (£1,057.46) (4,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
