12 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

On average projectors manufactured by Panasonic are rated 90%, which is in the top 1% of all projector manufacturers that we have looked at.

Just Released Seven Months Ago

The PT-EW550 was only relased by Panasonic seven months ago.

Price Has Dropped by £76.45

The price of the PT-EW550 dropped by £76.45 in the last fortnight.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Panasonic PT-EW550 supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PT-EW550 which do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD Projection

The PT-EW550 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PT-EW550 do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-EW550, the Panasonic PT-EW550 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think cheaper data projectors such as the Panasonic PT-EX520LEJ[plb_3898814_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Panasonic PT-EX520EJ[plb_3898813_price].

This multimedia projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution amongst all comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PT-EW550.

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