Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Panasonic PT-DZ680 does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this age and type do have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to consider including the Canon LV-8235 which also has a higher rating.

Running Costs Are Very High

The PT-DZ680 has an average 1 year running cost of £237 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the most expensive to run projectors of this age and spec.


Projector

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the data projectors of a similar type and age to this projector the projector brightnesses range from 110 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens. At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-DZ680 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to this data projector.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Christie DXG1051-Q (£7,015.20) (10,000 ANSI lumens).

Supports Full HD

We compared all the other data projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector which has better reviews is also worth considering.
