Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-DZ680 does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago do have a built-in speaker(s).

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The PT-DZ680 does not support full HD. Most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to this projector also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector which also has a higher rating.

Projector

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesses of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years range from 110 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,200 ANSI lumens. The PT-DZ680 has a fairly bright projector brightness (6,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Panasonic PT-EX610 (£1,966.54) (6,200 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP-X9110 (£5,300.40) (10,000 ANSI lumens).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The PT-DZ680 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution across all data projectors of this age and type.

An XGA (1024x768) projector native resolution is the worst resolution across similar types of projector.
