4 Reasons For

Panasonic Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Projectors built by Panasonic have excellent reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just projectors) and found that Panasonic also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

At 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Panasonic PT-RW430E has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type. The projector brightness of data projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 300 ANSI lumens to 9,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,900 ANSI lumens.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Panasonic PT-RZ470[plb_1844617_price], or the Viewsonic PJD6544W[plb_1536138_price] which has better reviews.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Epson EB-1930[plb_2594640_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Fairly Big Uniformity

The Panasonic PT-RW430E has one of the bigger uniformities (90 percent) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. The uniformities of similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago range from 80% to 130%, and the average uniformity is 85%.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This data projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is typical of many data projectors of this age and spec.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PT-RW430E does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the PT-RW430E which support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider including the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Panasonic PT-RW430E does not have a built-in speaker, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not have a built-in speaker.

Other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider include the Acer H7531D[plb_1418806_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The PT-RW430E does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-RW430E also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Panasonic PTAE7000U[plb_1897671_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PT-RW430E do not support WiFi connectivity. The PT-RW430E is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the LG PW700[plb_2778836_price], or the Optoma W305ST[plb_1726307_price].

Running Costs Are High

The PT-RW430E is in the most expensive 5% of all 102 projectors that were launched more than two years ago that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the PT-RW430E will cost £207 over 1 year to run.

Chart

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most projectors of this spec and age have between 1 and 11 VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the PT-RW430E which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The PT-RW430E is one of the heavier projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-RW430E (11 kilograms) amongst projectors of this age. The lightest data projector of a similar type and age to the PT-RW430E is 2.7g heavy, the heaviest is 26kg, and the average weight is 6.2kg.

This projector was released over four years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the PT-RW430E has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-RW430E.

Alternative 35dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available which you might also want to look at include the Panasonic PT-RZ470[plb_1844617_price] which has better reviews.
