1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Panasonic PT-LW330 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by data projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-LW330. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. In addition, this multimedia projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1280 x 800 (WXGA).

This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-LW330.

The worst supported resolution amongst similar types of data projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This data projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many similar spec projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

With a dot clock scanning frequency of 162 megahertz, the Panasonic PT-LW330 has one of the faster dot clock scanning frequencys amongst projectors of this age. Projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-LW330 have dot clock scanning frequencys of between 20MHz and 170MHz, and the average dot clock scanning frequency is 81MHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The Panasonic PT-LW330 has one of the longer service life of lamp (economic mode)s (8,000 hours) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age. The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of similar spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-LW330 range from 1,000h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This multimedia projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is typical of many projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The Panasonic PT-LW330 has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s (only 28 decibels) amongst projectors of this age. Across all the data projectors of this age and type the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 40dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The Panasonic PT-LW330 does not support 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD
