Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years, the Panasonic PT-EW730 does not support full HD.

Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider include the PA572 (£2,432.76), or the PA522 (£1,999) both from NEC which is also cheaper.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-EW730 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to this data projector.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think cheaper projectors such as the NEC PA572 (£2,432.76), and the Panasonic PT-EW640E (£2,429.99) is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Ricoh PJ WX4141 (£2,677.50).

Energy

Very High Running Costs

The PT-EW730 is in the most expensive 15% of all 68 projectors of a comparable type and age that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the PT-EW730 will cost £258 over 1 year to run.


Projector

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the data projectors that were launched more than two years ago the projector brightnesses range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 85,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 6,000 ANSI lumens. At 7,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-EW730 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-EX800ZLE (£2,828.40) (7,500 ANSI lumens).
