9 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Panasonic is one of the top rated data projector manufacturers according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all data projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-EW540, the PT-EW540 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Asus P1[plb_1479406_price], the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price] which has better reviews.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Panasonic PT-EW540 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

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

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The Panasonic PT-EW540 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). The resolution of all projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-EW540 ranges from XGA (1024x768) (worst) to WUXGA (1920x1200) (best).

Chart Edit

Quite Big Matrix Size

With a matrix size of 0.76 inches, the PT-EW540 has one of the bigger matrix sizes amongst projectors of this age. The average matrix size of projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-EW540 is 1.7", and the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 55".

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

The PT-EW540 is a two audio in port projector. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-EW540 have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

The PT-EW540 has one of the bigger lamp power (335 Watts) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The lamp power of comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-EW540 range from 170W to 4,000W, and the average lamp power is 320W.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Data projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-EW540 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,500h and 10,000h. The Panasonic PT-EW540 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode (4,500 hours) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-EW540.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-EW540 do not support Full HD projection. The Panasonic PT-EW540 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Canon WUX400ST[plb_2983475_price], or the Sony VPL-FH36[plb_1477017_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PT-EW540 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of this spec and age 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[plb_1531485_price], or the Optoma TW775[plb_1774541_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PT-EW540 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PT-EW540 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to look at include the PowerLite 1761W[pl_1735741_price], or the PowerLite 935W[pl_1875522_price] both from Epson or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price].
