The average 1 year running cost of the PT-TW342 is £97 based on typical energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 5 similar spec projectors that came out more than a year ago.


Other

It was December 2015 when Panasonic released the PT-TW342.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-TW342 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Panasonic PT-TX312 (£679) is also worth considering.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Panasonic PT-TW343R (£906.26) is also worth considering.

Performance

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the PT-TW342 has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to this projector.

We compared this data projector to all the other 37dB noise level projectors and we think the Panasonic PT-TX312 (£679) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Panasonic PT-TW343R (£906.26) (37dB).
