6 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Data Projectors

On average projectors made by Panasonic are rated 91%, which is in the top 1% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

Supports 3D

The Panasonic PT-CW331 supports 3D. Most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-CW331 also support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia 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)

The PT-CW331 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-CW331.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PRO8520HD[plb_1610101_price], the Optoma FX5200[plb_1711424_price], or the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price].

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The PT-CW331 supports a maximum resolution of 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 Panasonic data projector). In addition, this data projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+).

This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1080 (HD 1080)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all data projectors that have been available for more than two years.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-CW331 do not support full HD. The PT-CW331 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support full HD including the Viewsonic PRO8520HD[plb_1610101_price], or the Sony VPL-FHZ55[plb_1596654_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and spec, the Panasonic PT-CW331 does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the DELL S520[plb_2464459_price] is also worth considering.

The PT-CW331 is in the most expensive 8% of all 13 multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the PT-CW331 is £154.

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The Panasonic PT-CW331 has a fairly short service life of lamp (economic mode) (only 4,000 hours) compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 3,000h and 6,000h.
