3 Reasons For

Panasonic Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Panasonic is one of the leading projector manufacturers according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-TW343R has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-TW343R.

We compared all the other 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.

Four VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The PT-TW343R has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the comparable spec projectors that came out more than a year ago. This data projector is a four VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity multimedia projector compared to most of the 12000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago which only have between two and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The PT-TW343R does not support 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-TW343R also do not support 3D.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also support 3D including the Benq TH681+[plb_2977058_price], or the Panasonic PT-TX312[plb_3430220_price].

Does Not Support Full HD

The PT-TW343R does not support full HD. Most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-TW343R also do not support full HD.

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

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 12000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PT-TW343R do not support wi-Fi. The PT-TW343R is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Heavy

With a weight of 3.9 kilograms, the PT-TW343R is one of the heavier projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-TW343R amongst 12000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
