Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Panasonic PT-FW430U has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to this data projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Panasonic PT-FX400U which has better reviews.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Panasonic PT-FW300NT.

The Panasonic PT-FW430U has a fairly typical projector brightness (3,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 600:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this data projector.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-FX400U (4,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Performance

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 33 decibels, the PT-FW430U has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

We compared all the other 33dB noise level multimedia projectors to this projector and we think the Infocus IN1110A (£539.56) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
