7 Reasons For

Panasonic Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Panasonic is one of the leading multimedia projector brands according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all data projectors.

Supports Full HD

The PT-DZ680 supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PT-DZ680 the projector brightnesss range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens. At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the Panasonic PT-DZ680 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-DZ680.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Christie DXG1051-Q[plb_3022337_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.

This multimedia projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution amongst all projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-DZ680.

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

Two Lamps Quantitys

Most similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-DZ680 have between one and two lamps quantitys, including the PT-DZ680 which has two lamps quantitys.

Chart Edit

Two RS-232 Portss

Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years only have one RS-232 ports, however the PT-DZ680 has two RS-232 portss.

Chart Edit

Four VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The PT-DZ680 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-DZ680. This multimedia projector is a four VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector compared to most of the multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PT-DZ680 which only have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-DZ680 have a built-in speaker(s), however the Panasonic PT-DZ680 does not have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The PT-DZ680 does not support 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors of this age and spec also do not support 3D.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support 3D including the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PT-DZ680 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-DZ680 also do not support wi-Fi.

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