3 Reasons For

Panasonic Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

On average projectors manufactured by Panasonic are rated 90 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all multimedia projector brands that we have looked at.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PT-TW343R has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-TW343R.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the Panasonic PT-TW342[plb_3430218_price].

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Acer P5515[plb_2850665_price].

Four VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-TW343R only have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the PT-TW343R has four VGA (D-Sub) ports.

7 Reasons Against

Price Has Recently Increased by £142.14

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider including the Panasonic PT-TW342[plb_3430218_price].
