Just Projectors review on the Panasonic PT-LB425

All of these features work together to give you, clear, sharp images with realistic and bright colours with added depth. The clear and glowing images will enhance the learning and working experience whether the PT-LB425 is ceiling mounted or being used as a portable projector as it is very lightweight at only 2.9KGs. Give us a shout if you are thinking of installation as we also offer this service. Corner keystoning will help with installation or if you have to place your projector off-centre; you will still be able to project a straight image. We can also provide you with a suitable screen, from an electric, manual or a portable screen.

It has a HDMI input to connect to modern devices and show your content in high definition. There are also two VGA ports to connect to older laptops. You will be able to connect to multiple sources without swapping the cables around. The USB input is also useful for PC free presentations via a USB stick. This projector also has a built in 10W speaker, which is suitable for a medium sized audience.

To help reduce maintenance and operating costs, the Panasonic PT-LB425 has a very long lamp life of 20,000 hours, so you won’t have to replace the lamp anytime soon! This Panasonic projector has a standard throw ratio and gives you a bit of flexibility where you mount the projector if you are installing it.

The PT-LB425 has XGA resolution which is suitable for presentations and only short video clips. If you wish to show longer videos or movies, then we recommend you go up to at least WXGA resolution as your image will not stretch or distort and may only be an extra £30 for a better resolution, which will be definately worth your money. Take a look at some alternatives below. For presentations, the PT-LB425 will still give you a clear and sharp image. Overall, this is a great projector for medium rooms and has quite a few features.

What Panasonic say about the PT-LB425

The PT-LB425 Series combines vivid picture quality and fantastic cost-efficiency in a compact body. Breakthrough lamp technology extends lifespan up to 20,000 hours*1, significantly reducing your overheads. The flexible, wireless-ready, easy-to-use projectors bring media to life in classrooms and office spaces.

Breakthrough technology extends lamp replacement to 20,000 hours*. Longer lamp-life is achieved by reducing degradation and by improving cooling capabilities. Enjoy bright picture quality, low TCO, and less downtime for maintenance.

Daylight View Lite optimizes color and brightness according to ambient lighting levels. This function is easily accessed using the supplied remote control.

The projector includes a 1.2x zoom lens to support a wide range of projection throw-distances. This is useful when presenting in different installation environments.

If on-site conditions call for off-axis projection, simply designate four screen corners and Horizontal & Vertical Corner Keystone Correction performs necessary adjustments for distortion-free image presentation.

Barrel and pincushion distortions are easily corrected when projecting onto a curved screen surface such as black- or whiteboards.

To reduce hassle, the filter can be replaced via the side and the lamp from the top of the projector. There’s no need to remove the unit from its ceiling mount for periodic maintenance.

Insert a USB memory device into the USB port and start projecting stored content straight away without need of a connected PC. The USB media player supports a variety of image files, such as JPEG and PNG. Start your presentation right away without having to connect to a computer.

Transmission of audio and video content via PC to the projector is supported over USB cable with the projector set to USB Display Mode. No need to install software, just plug and play and start presenting immediately.

Projectors with Direct Power Off function allow you to switch off the projector and unplug the power cord right after use. You can safely turn off the room’s breaker switch without waiting for the projector to cool down. This is useful in applications where the projector is mounted on the ceiling, or in time-critical situations.

About Classroom
Good news when buying an education projector for your classroom, the projector manufacturers want your business so they offer you extra features such as extended warranties like de install/re install (please check with us as every model is different) lamp warranties. When I first started this business in 2001, I was selling 800 Lumens SVGA projectors to schools for over £1000, nowadays you can get a 2500 Lumen XGA for under £300, how times have changed, so now is the time not to buy SVGA any longer. Only 3 manufacturers still produce it and unless you can't afford the extra £50 to get almost a 50% better image then buy SVGA. The laptops and PC's you have purchased in the last 3 years have such high resolutions that SVGA struggles on anything bigger than a 4ft wide image. The single most important thing to do when buying a replacement classroom projector which is installed is know your throw ratio. This is easy to work out. Measure the distance back the current projector is from the wall/screen/iwb say its 300 cm, then measure the image size you want whether that is to fill a projector screen or just a desired size on the wall, let's say this is 180 cm . Divide 300/180 = 1.67 this is throw ratio. Not all projector will have this throw ratio, of course most of them have a range say 1.5-1.8 , that means 1.67 would be fine, but something like the Optoma's that have 1.95-2.15 will produce the grown size image. If you are unsure of your throw ratio or you just can't measure then call us with your old model, we can work this out for you. it is no point looking at any projector until this is sorted if its replacement projector. Once that is all sorted then buying a classroom projector really is now a choice of standard throw or short throw, this of course depends again if its a replacement but if its not and you have a new requirement then the trend for classroom projectors is short throw, there is no shadow , no glaring in the teachers eyes, installed on the wall rather than long cable runs, easier to change the lamps. Yes they are more expensive so maybe not a choice for everyone. Remember lumens is important when buying a education projector for your school as you don't really want to have to pull the blinds down, and there is no need to do this now with projectors having high lumens for very little money. Be brave go for 2700-3200 and see the change from your projector that was 1800 lumens struggling on a bright day. It is important to note that a short throw classroom projector with a lumens of even 2000 will be the same as a standard throw projector of 3800 lumens as the distance the image has to go is significantly shorter. Resolution for schools should be XGA or WXGA , go for the wider screen WXGA as they is how formats have changed from 4:3 to 16:10 in recent years but of course if you have a 4:3 interactive whiteboard you need to pair that with a 4:3 projector resolution such as XGA. So again if this is a new requirement for the classroom and you haven't yet brought the screen and projector then go for WXGA. There are some bright 1080p projectors out there at sub £1000 and if you have good budget and say its for a art or media classroom then it would be worth it as yet again you are improving the quality. Not really 1080p for day to day classroom use yet but maybe the next time you buy that will be the new standard. Projectors for schools need to be flexible in connectivity, the VGA connection is beginning to be phased out by PC manufacturers and the new standard is HDmi , so getting a HD ready projector with a Hdmi connection makes the most sense, again you add say £20 to the purchase cost but it will be future proof. The strong Education brands traditionally have been Epson & NEC offering the best warranties but other brands such as BenQ are well worth a look. Just Projectors have a large education client base with many councils using us as their preferred supplier, we are popular because we can help your school on the phone, listen to your specific needs, provide a complete installation service if you want and help you get the best classroom projector. of course our web prices are a guide, there is always improvements that can be made on 5+ deals, and the larger ones 15+ we can get special pricing from the manufacturer to support a discounted price. Give Just Projectors a chance to supply your classroom projector. A case study of replacement projectors for a classroom, we were asked by a London school based in Greenwich to find a replacement for their seven Sanyo XE32's which were no longer bright enough and had faded, the replacement lamp cost was significant and there had been some failures. All of these projectors were installed and the school didn't want to move the mounts, all the mounts were universal. The first thing to do was see the old spec as the resolution was OK, XGA but the brightness wasn't enough 2000 lumens, as prices had changed since the XE32 were purchased and lumens was more affordable it was decided to go for 3000 Lumens , XGA. The next thing was to deal with the slightly strange throw ratio of the Sanyo XE32 1.77-2.17 , if this wasn't taken into consideration then the image would either be too big for the screen or too small. To keep the price down the measurements were taken for each room as they had not been placed in a uniform position, it turned out that the throw ratios ranged from 1.9 -2.1 and this was great news as there was a more affordable choice. We supplied the IN114a for under £300 pre vat, we did give a discount for purchasing over 5 and we carried out the installation one week later. The new projectors are performing well in the classroom and the brightness issue had been resolved. We did consider whether to go to widescreen but it was felt with all the screens being 4:3 it was best to stick to XGA for the time being.

ABOUT JUST PROJECTORS

We provide advice on the phone listening to your requirements we are able to help you get the right one as we have trained staff . We have a network of installers to cover your area. On higher end models we can arrange a loan or demo. We think most people should buy HD resolution , they are so affordable now and you wouldn't buy a 5 year old laptop so why buy SVGA which is over 20 years old. Yes XGA & WXGA are ideal for simple presentations and education use but we have all been use to decent home TV's or high resolution phones or tables so why put a huge image on the wall/screen which is inferior. There are some great brands out there BenQ, Infocus, Epson and less known ones like EIKI or Vivitek. Yes you can buy the wrong one, this is why we still offer advice rather than just an add to cart website.
