11 Reasons For

Panasonic Data Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Projectors built by Panasonic generally have excellent ratings.

Only Released Five Months Ago

This projector has only been on the market for five months.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Panasonic PT-RZ970 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-RZ970 which do not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Panasonic PT-RZ770 (£10,012.20).

Very Bright Projector Brightness

At 9,400 ANSI lumens, the PT-RZ970 has a very bright projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released in the last 12 months. The average projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PT-RZ970 is 4,900 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Panasonic PT-RZ970 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is in fact the best resolution across all comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-RZ970.

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

Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The service life of lamp in economic mode of similar spec multimedia projectors that were released in the last 12 months range from 3,000h to 24,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 9,000h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 24,000 hours, the PT-RZ970 has one of the longest service life of lamp in economic mode amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Six BNC Input Ports

The PT-RZ970 is a six BNC input port data projector. Most of the other projectors that came out in the last year only have between one and five BNC input ports.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The PT-RZ970 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Very Big Uniformity

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-RZ970 the uniformities range from 70% to 90%, and the average uniformity is 82%. The Panasonic PT-RZ970 has one of the biggest uniformities (90 percent) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of 20,000 hours, the PT-RZ970 has a quite long lamp service life compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched in the last 12 months. Comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-RZ970 have lamp service lives of between 2,500h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 8,000h.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on latest projectors.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Not Cheap

We checked 38 similar spec data projectors that were released in the last 12 months and they range in price from £220 to £13,126. We think that this Panasonic projector looks expensive compared to other similar spec data projectors that were released in the last 12 months.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The PT-RZ970 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-RZ970 do have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PT-RZ970 do not support 3D image projection. The PT-RZ970 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PT-RZ970 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released in the last 12 months also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The average maximum horizontal synchronization of data projectors that were released in the last 12 months is 92kHz, and the maximum horizontal synchronization range from 67kHz to 110kHz. The Panasonic PT-RZ970 has one of the lower maximum horizontal synchronization (only 67.5 kilohertz) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

The PT-RZ970 is a one HDMI port projector. Most of the other new data projectors have between one and two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level

When compared to other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PT-RZ970, the PT-RZ970's noise level of 41 decibels is one of the loudest. Across all the recently released data projectors the noise levels range from 28dB to 41dB.

Chart Edit

Very Wide

The width of the PT-RZ970 of 498 millimeters is one of the widest amongst comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PT-RZ970. The widths of similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-RZ970 range from 100mm to 500mm, and the average width is 400mm.

Chart Edit

Very High Power Consumption During PowerSave

When compared to other latest 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that we have checked, the PT-RZ970's power consumption during PowerSave of 617 Watts is one of the highest. Across all the newly released similar spec projectors the power consumption during PowerSave range from 8W to 620W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 250W.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The Panasonic PT-RZ970 is one of the heavier 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PT-RZ970 (22.4 kilograms) amongst projectors of this age. Newly released 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have weights of between 2.2g and 28kg.
