Other

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was August 2013 when Panasonic released the PT-DW740ELS.


Projector

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Comparable spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago have projector brightnesses of between 500 ANSI lumens and 16,000 ANSI lumens. The PT-DW740ELS has a quite bright projector brightness (7,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to this multimedia projector.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the CP-HD9320 (£8,960.40) (8,200 ANSI lumens), the CP-WX9210 (£4,792.80) (8,500 ANSI lumens), or the CP-WU9410 (£9,033.60) (8,500 ANSI lumens) all from Hitachi.

Video

Supports Full HD

The PT-DW740ELS supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to this multimedia projector do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD and we think because of its better review score, the Ricoh PJ WX4130 is also worth considering.

HD-Ready

The PT-DW740ELS is HD-Ready. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to this multimedia projector also are HD-Ready.
