9 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

Data projectors manufactured by Panasonic are some of the best data projectors according to average reviews from experts and owners.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-EW730, the PT-EW730 has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the NEC PA522[plb_2406092_price], or the Panasonic PT-EX800[plb_2130355_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson EB-G6050W[plb_1892938_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The PT-EW730 has one of the brighter projector brightness (7,000 ANSI lumens) amongst data projectors of this age. Across all the comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than two years the projector brightness range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,800 ANSI lumens.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-EX800[plb_2130355_price] (7,500 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The PT-EW730 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-EW730. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This projector also support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) and 800 x 600 (.

This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all projectors of this spec and age.

The worst supported resolution amongst similar types of data projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

The PT-EW730 has an average 1 year running cost of £258 based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is in the most expensive 12% of all 53 projectors of a comparable age and spec.

Chart

Quite Short Lamp Service Life

At only 3,000 hours, the PT-EW730 has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age. The shortest lamp service life of 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-EW730 is 2,000h and the longest is 5,000h.

With a weight of 10.6 kilograms, the PT-EW730 is one of the heavier comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-EW730 amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

The cheapeast 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago that we found costs £449 and the most expensive costs £11,999. We think that this 5000:1 contrast ratio data projector looks expensive for a multimedia projector of this type and age.
