8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Panasonic PT-DW830 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-DW830 which have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might also want to look at including the Acer H7531D[plb_1418806_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Panasonic PT-DW830 does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PT-DW830 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

High Running Costs

The PT-DW830 is in the most expensive 4% of all 118 comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the PT-DW830 will cost £333 over 1 year to run.

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

Most data projectors of this age and type have between 1 and 11 VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, including the PT-DW830 which has one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity.
