7 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

On average Panasonic multimedia projectors are rated 91%, which is in the top 1% of all projector brands that we have assessed.

Supports 3D

The Panasonic PT-CW230U supports 3D, unlike most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched more than two years ago which do not support 3D.

We compared all the other data projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC U310W is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Panasonic PT-CW230U has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PT-CW230U also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Epson PowerLite 935W which has better reviews is also worth considering.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The PT-CW230U has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-CW230U the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is XGA (1024x768).

Chart Edit

Two Audio (L,R) Ins

The PT-CW230U is a two audio (L,R) in multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The Panasonic PT-CW230U has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s (only 28 decibels) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The noise level (economic mode)s of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-CW230U range from 26dB to 37dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors of this age and type, the PT-CW230U does not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the PT-CW230U does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W, or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very High Running Costs

The PT-CW230U has an average running cost of £194 over 1 year based on average energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the least economic to run projectors of this age and type.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-CW230U have projector brightnesss of between 110 ANSI lumens and 10,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the PT-CW230U has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss amongst projectors of this age.

2 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-CW230U

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when Panasonic released the PT-CW230U.

Average Noise Level

The PT-CW230U has a fairly standard noise level (36 decibels) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-CW230U.

We compared this projector to all the other 36dB noise level projectors and we think the NEC U310W which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Benq SP870 (£838.80) (36dB).
