Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to this projector, the Panasonic PT-VW330 does not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the NP-PA600X, or the NP-PH1000 both from NEC or the Optoma EH503 are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Alternative 35dB noise level data projectors currently available which you might want to consider include because of their better review scores, the PT-DZ680, the PT-DX610, or the PT-DW640 all from Panasonic.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-VW330 has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to this multimedia projector.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of their better review scores, the NEC U300X, the Casio XJ-A256, or the Epson EB-465i.

If this Panasonic projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Ricoh PJ WX2240 VP (3,100 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Optoma X310 (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
