Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors that have been around for more than a year, the PT-JW130 does not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Sony VPL-HW65ES which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the data projectors of a similar type and age to this projector the projector brightnesses range from 1,000 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens. The Panasonic PT-JW130 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 1,000 ANSI lumen) amongst projectors of this age.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Sony Vpl-vw550es (£8,999) (1,800 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
