5 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Projector Reviews

Data projectors produced by Panasonic are some of the best data projectors according to average expert and user reviews.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PTCW330U, the Panasonic PTCW330U supports 3D image projection.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection which you might also want to look at including the IN3134a[pl_2544144_price], or the IN3136a[pl_2544145_price] both from Infocus or the Optoma FX5200[plb_1711424_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Panasonic PTCW330U has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PTCW330U.

It is worth considering other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the IN3134a[pl_2544144_price], or the IN3136a[pl_2544145_price] both from Infocus or the Optoma FX5200[plb_1711424_price].

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This multimedia projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Two Component Video in Ports

The PTCW330U is a two component video in port projector.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Panasonic PTCW330U does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Viewsonic PRO8520HD[plb_1610101_price], or the Sony VPL-FHZ55[plb_1596654_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PTCW330U, the PTCW330U does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors of this spec and age is 2,600 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 7,000 ANSI lumens. At only 3,100 ANSI lumens, the PTCW330U has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If this 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the IN3134a[pl_2544144_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens), or the IN3136a[pl_2544145_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens) both from Infocus.

Very Low Number of Colours

With a number of colours of only 16.7 million, the PTCW330U has one of the lower numbers of colours amongst similar spec projectors of this age. 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago have numbers of colours of between 16M and 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 330M.

Chart Edit

Only Two VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Panasonic PTCW330U is a two VGA (D-Sub) port projector. Most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the PTCW330U have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

4 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PTCW330U

Running Costs Are OK

Based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the PTCW330U is £154, which is typical compared to the other 13 projectors of a comparable type and age.

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Panasonic released the PTCW330U.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the Panasonic PTCW330U has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PTCW330U.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Sony VPL-FHZ55[plb_1596654_price] (40dB) which also has a higher rating.

1280 X 800 Graphics Resolution

The PTCW330U supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800. That's over three times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the PTCW330U.

We are using the projector about 3ft away from the wall. The image is still strong and bright. I was concerned when we purchased it that it wouldn't be bright enough for the area it was going. We... Read more…
