3 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Projectors manufactured by Panasonic generally have excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The PT-TW342 supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-TW342 do not support 3D image projection.

Alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might want to look at include the Panasonic PT-TX312[plb_3430220_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq TH681+[plb_2977058_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Panasonic PT-TW342 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the PT-TX312[pl_3430220_price], the PT-LB412[pl_3354901_price], or the PT-LB382[pl_3430221_price] all from Panasonic.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Panasonic PT-TW342 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of this type and age do not support Full HD projection. The Panasonic PT-TW342 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to look at include the Benq TH681+[plb_2977058_price] or the Panasonic PT-TX312[plb_3430220_price].

Very Small Matrix Size

Across all the comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-TW342 the matrix sizes range from 0.58" to 0.63", and the average matrix size is 0.62". At only 0.59 inches, the PT-TW342 has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-TW342.

5 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-TW342

Average Running Costs

The PT-TW342 has an average running cost of £97 over 1 year based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 8 multimedia projectors of this type and age.

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this multimedia projector was released.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the PT-TW342 has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-TW342.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level data projectors to this projector and we think the PT-LB412[pl_3354901_price], and the PT-TX312[pl_3430220_price] both from Panasonic which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-TW343R[plb_3430219_price] (37dB).

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,300 ANSI lumens, the PT-TW342 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-TW342.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-LB382[plb_3430221_price] (3,800 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
