10 Reasons For

One Industry Award

One expert review site concluded that this Panasonic multimedia projector was exceptional and gave it their highest award. This projector received an "Editor's Choice" award from PC Mag.

Expert Reviews Are Good

This data projector received a score of 80% from data projector expert review site PC Mag.

Panasonic Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Projectors built by Panasonic are some of the best projectors according to average reviews from owners and experts.

Robust

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it was well made. Pcmag.com said in their review on expert review site PC Mag “It's part of Panasonic's Solid Shine Series, which means it uses a laser-LED h”.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Panasonic PT-RZ370 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might want to look at including the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the PT-RZ370 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-RZ370 the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

Similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years have projector brightness of between 300 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Panasonic PT-RZ370 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-RZ370.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Epson 1980WU[plb_2746486_price] (4,400 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Fairly Big Matrix Size

With a matrix size of 0.65 inches, the Panasonic PT-RZ370 has a fairly big matrix size compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. The smallest matrix size of projectors that are a similar age to the PT-RZ370 is 0.45", the biggest is 0.96", and the average matrix size is 0.62".

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Optical Zoom

Across all the multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-RZ370 the optical zooms range from 1.1x to 2.1x. At 2 times zoom factor, the PT-RZ370 has a fairly big optical zoom compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

With a uniformity of 90 percent, the PT-RZ370 has a quite big uniformity compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-RZ370. The smallest uniformity of projectors of this spec and age is 0.9%, the biggest is 100%, and the average uniformity is 83%.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Inferior Sound Quality

One customer reckoned that the product did not have good sound quality. Pc Mag wrote on PC Mag “No built-in audio” in their Panasonic PT-RZ370 review.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The PT-RZ370 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago which have a built-in speaker.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the EB-W18[pl_2069440_price], or the 1975W[pl_3009713_price] both from Epson which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-RZ370, the PT-RZ370 does not support 3D image projection.

Other projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider include the Optoma ML550[plb_1947306_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PT-RZ370 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-RZ370 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider including the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price] which is also higher rated.

High Running Costs

The PT-RZ370 is in the most expensive 9% of all 136 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the PT-RZ370 is £207.

Chart

Quite Small Offset

With an offset of only 90 percent, the PT-RZ370 has a quite small offset compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-RZ370. The smallest offset of data projectors of this type and age is 8%, the biggest is 140%, and the average offset is 100%.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-RZ370 have weights of between 360g and 54kg. At 11 kilograms, the PT-RZ370 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.
