9 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Data Projectors

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

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PT-DZ680 which do not support Full HD projection, the PT-DZ680 supports Full HD projection.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price].

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-DZ680 the projector brightness range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 6,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-DZ680 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Christie DXG1051-Q[plb_3022337_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Panasonic PT-DZ680 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution.

This data projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution across all projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-DZ680.

An XGA (1024x768) native projector resolution is the worst resolution across similar types of data projector.

The quietest noise level of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-DZ680 is 28dB, the loudest is 42dB, and the average noise level is 36dB.
