9 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Data projectors from Panasonic have an average rating of 90 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Panasonic PT-LW330 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The PT-LW330 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 Panasonic data projector). This projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA).

This multimedia projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-LW330.

Amongst similar types of multimedia projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-LW330 the dot clock scanning frequencies range from 20MHz to 170MHz, and the average dot clock scanning frequency is 81MHz. The PT-LW330 has one of the faster dot clock scanning frequencies (162 megahertz) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The PT-LW330 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode (8,000 hours) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-LW330. The service life of lamp in economic mode of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PT-LW330 range from 1,000h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,400h.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This multimedia projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The Panasonic PT-LW330 has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode (only 28 decibels) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-LW330 have noise levels in economy mode of between 26dB and 40dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

The PT-LW330 has a quite low power consumption during PowerSave (only 0.5 Watts) compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-LW330. The average power consumption during PowerSave of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-LW330 is 170W.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PT-LW330 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The PT-LW330 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-LW330 also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Epson 1975W which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-LW330, the PT-LW330 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this data projector and we think the Benq W1500, or the Epson PowerLite 1222 is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very High Running Costs

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the PT-LW330 will cost £141 over 1 year to run, which is in the most expensive 18% of all 136 data projectors of a comparable spec and age.

Chart

Quite Small Uniformity

With a uniformity of only 80 percent, the Panasonic PT-LW330 has one of the smaller uniformities amongst projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-LW330 the uniformities range from 0.9% to 100%, and the average uniformity is 83%.

3 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-LW330

Released Over Two Years Ago

This projector has been on the market for over two years.

Average Noise Level

The PT-LW330 has a relatively average noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PT-LW330.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 37dB noise level data projectors currently available including the Epson EB-X24 (£489.56) which has better reviews.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Epson EB-W28 (£434.99) (37dB).

Average Projector Brightness

The Panasonic PT-LW330 has a pretty typical projector brightness (3,300 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the 1980WU (4,400 ANSI lumens), or the 1985WU (4,800 ANSI lumens) both from Epson which also has a higher rating.
