8 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

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

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Panasonic PT-CW241 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors of this age and type.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might want to consider including the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PT-CW241 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PT-CW241.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This multimedia projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The noise levels in economy mode of comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 29dB to 35dB. With a noise level in economy mode of only 30 decibels, the Panasonic PT-CW241 has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The PT-CW241 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-CW241 also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Viewsonic PRO8520HD[plb_1610101_price], or the Sony VPL-FHZ55[plb_1596654_price] which is also higher rated.
