8 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Multimedia projectors built by Panasonic generally have excellent ratings.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years which do not support Full HD projection, the Panasonic PT-DZ680ULK supports Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector is also worth considering.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-DZ680ULK has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the PT-DZ680ULK. The dimmest projector brightness of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PT-DZ680ULK is 110 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 10,000 ANSI lumens.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Christie DXG1051-Q (£7,015.20) (10,000 ANSI lumens).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the PT-DZ680ULK is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution amongst all projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-DZ680ULK.

Amongst comparable types of projector the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768).

Two Lamps

The Panasonic PT-DZ680ULK is a two lamp projector.

Chart Edit

Two RS-232 Ports

The PT-DZ680ULK is a two RS-232 port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Four VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most of the other projectors of this spec and age only have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the PT-DZ680ULK has four VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

Multimedia projectors of this age and type have uniformities of between 78% and 95%. The PT-DZ680ULK has a fairly big uniformity (90 percent) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the PT-DZ680ULK.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The PT-DZ680ULK does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-DZ680ULK which have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PT-DZ680ULK does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-DZ680ULK also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NEC U310W which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Panasonic PT-DZ680ULK does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson PowerLite 1761W, or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro which is also higher rated.

Running Costs Are Very High

The PT-DZ680ULK is one of the least economic to run projectors of this spec and age that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the PT-DZ680ULK is £242.

Chart

Heavy

With a weight of 15.1 kilograms, the Panasonic PT-DZ680ULK is one of the heavier data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-DZ680ULK amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Across all the data projectors of this age and spec the weights range from 370g to 23kg.
