10 Reasons For

One Industry Award

This 10000:1 contrast ratio projector was given an "Editor's Choice" award by PC Mag who thought that this multimedia projector was excellent.

Expert Reviews Are Good

Projector expert review website PC Mag scored this projector 80 out of 100.

Panasonic Has Excellent Data Projector Reviews

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of data projectors to determine an average rating for each multimedia projector brand. On average projectors from Panasonic have excellent ratings from experts and owners.

Robust

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it was well made. Pcmag.com said in their review on expert review site PC Mag “It's part of Panasonic's Solid Shine Series, which means it uses a laser-LED h”.

Supports Full HD

The PT-RZ370U supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-RZ370U do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors which support full HD currently available including the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price], or the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The Panasonic PT-RZ370U has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most common resolution. The best resolution of all data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-RZ370U is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,500 ANSI lumens, the PT-RZ370U has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-RZ370U. The average projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 3,300 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesss range from 300 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the 1980WU[pl_2746486_price] (4,400 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the 1985WU[pl_2785330_price] (4,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Epson.

Quite Big Matrix Size

The Panasonic PT-RZ370U has a fairly big matrix size (0.65 inches) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-RZ370U. Across all the projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-RZ370U the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.96", and the average matrix size is 0.62".

Chart Edit

Very Big Optical Zoom

At 2 times zoom factor, the Panasonic PT-RZ370U has a very big optical zoom compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-RZ370U. The average optical zoom of multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PT-RZ370U is 1.3x.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Uniformity

Across all the projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-RZ370U the uniformitys range from 0.9% to 100%. At 90 percent, the PT-RZ370U has a quite big uniformity compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-RZ370U.

8 Reasons Against

Inferior Sound Quality

One customer reckoned that the product did not have good sound quality. Pc Mag wrote on PC Mag “No built-in audio” in their Panasonic PT-RZ370 review.

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-RZ370U have a built-in speaker(s), however the PT-RZ370U does not have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might also want to consider including the Benq GP3[plb_2027406_price], or the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price].

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age, the PT-RZ370U does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors of this type and age do not support wi-Fi. The Panasonic PT-RZ370U is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to look at include the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the Epson 1985WU[plb_2785330_price] which is also higher rated.

Running Costs Are High

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the PT-RZ370U will cost £207 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the more expensive to run projectors of this age and spec.

Chart

Quite Small Offset

The offsets of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-RZ370U range from 8% to 150%. With an offset of only 90 percent, the PT-RZ370U has one of the smaller offsets amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Heavy

With a weight of 11 kilograms, the Panasonic PT-RZ370U is one of the heavier 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PT-RZ370U amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The lightest 10000:1 contrast ratio projector that has been available for a similar time to the PT-RZ370U is 360g heavy, the heaviest is 54kg, and the average weight is 4.7kg.
