Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Panasonic PT-TW240 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-TW240. This projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector compared to most of the comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-TW240 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PT-TW240 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 3,000h and 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,000h. The service life of lamp in economic mode of the Panasonic PT-TW240 of 8,500 hours is one of the longest amongst projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-TW240.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PT-TW240 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-TW240 also do not support 3D image projection.

Alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the NEC L51W which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors of this age and type, the PT-TW240 does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the L51W, or the NP-P451 (£1,346.94) both from NEC which is also higher rated.
