In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 640 x 400, 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1600 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x 1200 (WU. The best resolution of all multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PT-VW340 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-VW340, the PT-VW340 does not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at including the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most projectors of this age and spec do not support 3D image projection. The PT-VW340 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years do not support WiFi connectivity. The PT-VW340 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the NEC NP-UM330[plb_1528333_price] is also worth considering.

High Running Costs

The PT-VW340 has an average running cost of £163 over 1 year based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the more expensive to run similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years.

3 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-VW340

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Panasonic released the PT-VW340.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,700 ANSI lumens, the PT-VW340 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-VW340.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

The PT-VW340 has a pretty standard noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-VW340.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 35dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] is also worth considering.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Epson EB-1400WI[plb_1851960_price] (35dB).
