7 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

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

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors of this age and spec, the PT-VW330 has a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to consider including the AAXA Technologies P450, or the Canon WUX-450 which has better reviews.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The PT-VW330 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this Panasonic multimedia projector). This multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1152 x 870, 1280 x 960, 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-VW330.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution amongst similar types of projector.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The Panasonic PT-VW330 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). The resolution of all projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-VW330 ranges from XGA (1024x768) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

At 10 Watts, the PT-VW330 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago the RMS rated powers range from 1W to 19W.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on projectors of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The average noise level (economic mode) of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 30dB. With a noise level (economic mode) of only 29 decibels, the PT-VW330 has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

This 2000:1 contrast ratio projector received an expert rating of 60% from pcworld.pl. Projector experts aren't convinced by this projector.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-VW330 do not support full HD. The Panasonic PT-VW330 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector, the Optoma EX855, or the Panasonic PT-DZ680ULK which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

Most similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-VW330 do not support 3D. The PT-VW330 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support 3D which you might also want to look at including the U300X, the U260W, or the U310W all from NEC.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PT-VW330 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-VW330 also do not support wi-Fi.

Other data projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to look at include the Epson PowerLite 1761W, the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro, or the Casio XJ-A256 which also has a higher rating.

Very Slow Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

The PT-VW330 has one of the slower dot clock scanning frequencys (only 140 megahertz) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The slowest dot clock scanning frequency of similar spec multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago is 140MHz, the fastest is 170MHz, and the average dot clock scanning frequency is 160MHz.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio (L,R) in

The PT-VW330 is a one audio (L,R) in projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

At only 0.59 inches, the Panasonic PT-VW330 has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the PT-VW330. The average matrix size of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-VW330 is 0.65".

4 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-VW330

Running Costs Are Average

Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the PT-VW330 will cost £107 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 85 projectors of a similar spec and age.

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Panasonic released the PT-VW330.

Average Noise Level

The PT-VW330 has a fairly average noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-VW330.

We compared this projector to all the other 35dB noise level data projectors and we think the PT-DZ680, and the PT-DW640 both from Panasonic or the Casio XJ-A251 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-VW330 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-VW330.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the CP-DH300, or the CP-EW300 (£490.14) both from Hitachi or the NEC U300X which has better reviews.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the WUX-400 (4,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the WUX400ST (£7,870.73) (4,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Canon or the Epson D6155W (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
