Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The PT-VW340 does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to this multimedia projector also do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the Hitachi CP-CW300WN (£727.25), or the NEC UM280X (£685.99) are also worth considering.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-VW340 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as this data projector.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think a cheaper data projector such as the Hitachi CP-CW300WN (£727.25) or you might consider a better rated data projector such as the Epson EB-425W (£769) are also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Hitachi CP-X5022 (£786.23).

Projector

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of projectors that are a similar age to this data projector is 3,400 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesses range from 100 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 3,700 ANSI lumens, the PT-VW340 has one of the brighter projector brightnesses amongst data projectors of this age.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Epson EB-1930 (£699) (4,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

WXGA (1280x800) Resolution

Performance

Average Noise Level

The Panasonic PT-VW340 has a fairly typical noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

We compared this projector to all the other 35dB noise level projectors and we think because of its better review score, the Epson EB-425W (£769) is also worth considering.

If you are not bothered about having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Optoma EX685 (£811.37) (30dB), or the Hitachi CP-WX4022 (£860.69) (35dB).

High Running Costs

The PT-VW340 is in the most expensive 5% of all 97 data projectors of this spec and age that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the PT-VW340 will cost £163 over 1 year to run.
