6 Reasons For

Panasonic Data Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Panasonic is one of the top rated projector manufacturers according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other projectors of this type and age, the PT-CW330 supports 3D.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other data projectors which support 3D currently available including the Optoma FX5200[plb_1711424_price], or the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-CW330, the Panasonic PT-CW330 has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Viewsonic PRO8520HD[plb_1610101_price], the Optoma FX5200[plb_1711424_price], or the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Panasonic PT-CW330 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 704 x 576, 720 x 480, 832 x 624, 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+).

A 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) supported graphics resolutions is in fact the best supported resolution across all comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-CW330.

The worst supported resolution across similar types of data projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This multimedia projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This data projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is typical of many similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support full HD. The Panasonic PT-CW330 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

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

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-CW330, the Panasonic PT-CW330 does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the DELL S520[plb_2464459_price].

Very High Running Costs

The PT-CW330 is in the most expensive 16% of all 13 multimedia projectors of a similar type and age that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the PT-CW330 will cost £154 over 1 year to run.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors of this spec and age the projector brightnesss range from 2,600 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,700 ANSI lumens. The PT-CW330 has a quite dim projector brightness (only 3,100 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-CW330.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the IN3134a[pl_2544144_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the IN3136a[pl_2544145_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Infocus.

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This data projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At only 4,000 hours, the PT-CW330 has a fairly short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PT-CW330. The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-CW330 range from 3,000h to 6,000h.

2 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-CW330

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Panasonic released the PT-CW330.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the PT-CW330 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We compared this projector to all the other 37dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
