8 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

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

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-DZ680 the projector brightnesss range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 6,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-DZ680 has one of the brighter projector brightnesss amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Hitachi CP-X9110[plb_2240776_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

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

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

Amongst comparable types of projector the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The PT-DZ680 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution amongst all comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years.

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

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Projectors of this age and spec have noise levels of between 28dB and 42dB. The PT-DZ680 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 35 decibels) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Two RS-232 Portss

The PT-DZ680 is a two RS-232 ports multimedia projector. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-DZ680 only have one RS-232 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The PT-DZ680 has a quite quiet noise level (economic mode) (only 29 decibels) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PT-DZ680. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-DZ680 the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 37dB.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

The average power consumption (PowerSave) of multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-DZ680 is 200W. With a power consumption (PowerSave) of only 0.3 Watts, the Panasonic PT-DZ680 has a fairly low power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-DZ680.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-DZ680 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-DZ680.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Most similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-DZ680 do not support full HD. The PT-DZ680 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support 3D

The Panasonic PT-DZ680 does not support 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-DZ680 also do not support 3D.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support 3D which you might also want to consider including the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago, the PT-DZ680 does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the PT-DZ680 the weights range from 370g to 23kg.
