8 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

On average data projectors made by Panasonic are rated 90 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all data projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-DZ680 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-DZ680. The projector brightness of multimedia projectors of this age and spec range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Hitachi CP-X9110[plb_2240776_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Panasonic PT-DZ680 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768).

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution amongst all projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-DZ680.

The worst resolution amongst comparable types of projector is XGA (1024x768).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Panasonic PT-DZ680 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-DZ680.

This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-DZ680.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution across similar types of data projector.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 35 decibels, the PT-DZ680 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-DZ680. The noise levels of projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-DZ680 range from 28dB to 42dB.

Chart Edit

Two RS-232 Ports

The PT-DZ680 has more RS-232 ports than most of the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-DZ680. Most of the similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago only have one RS-232 port, however this multimedia projector has two RS-232 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Uniformity

The average uniformity of projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-DZ680 is 86%, and the uniformities range from 78% to 95%. With a uniformity of 90 percent, the PT-DZ680 has a quite big uniformity compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-DZ680.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

Projectors of this spec and age have power consumption during PowerSave of between 0.2W and 460W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 200W. At only 0.3 Watts, the Panasonic PT-DZ680 has a quite low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-DZ680.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-DZ680 have a built-in speaker, however the Panasonic PT-DZ680 does not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most data projectors of this age and spec do not support Full HD projection. The Panasonic PT-DZ680 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Panasonic PT-DZ680 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support 3D image projection.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Panasonic PT-DZ680 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-DZ680 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to look at including the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price].

Running Costs Are High

The PT-DZ680 has an average 1 year running cost of £293 based on average energy prices, which makes it one of the less economic to run data projectors of a comparable age and spec.

Chart

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-DZ680 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the PT-DZ680 which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-DZ680 have weights of between 370g and 23kg. The PT-DZ680 is one of the heavier projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-DZ680 (15.1 kilograms) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.
