3 Reasons For

Panasonic Data Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

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

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-TW342 which do not support 3D, the Panasonic PT-TW342 supports 3D.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the Benq TH681+[plb_2977058_price], the Panasonic PT-TX312[plb_3430220_price], or the Acer P5515[plb_2850665_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 12000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-TW342, the Panasonic PT-TW342 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq TH681+[plb_2977058_price], or the Panasonic PT-LB382[plb_3430221_price] is also worth considering.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago do not support wi-Fi. The Panasonic PT-TW342 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The Panasonic PT-TW342 does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support full HD which you might want to consider including the Benq TH681+[plb_2977058_price], the Panasonic PT-TX312[plb_3430220_price], or the Acer P5515[plb_2850665_price].

Very Small Matrix Size

At only 0.59 inches, the PT-TW342 has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-TW342. The smallest matrix size of projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PT-TW342 is 0.58", the biggest is 0.63", and the average matrix size is 0.62".

5 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-TW342

Running Costs Are OK

The PT-TW342 has an average running cost of £97 over 1 year based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 8 projectors that were launched more than a year ago.

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Panasonic released the PT-TW342.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the PT-TW342 has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-TW342.

If you would consider a multimedia projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the PT-LB412[pl_3354901_price] (37dB), or the PT-TX312[pl_3430220_price] (37dB) both from Panasonic.
