4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-VW340, the PT-VW340 does not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

The Panasonic PT-VW340 does not support 3D. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-VW340 also do not support 3D.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support 3D including the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Panasonic PT-VW340 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the PT-VW340 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Epson BrightLink 436Wi[plb_1875520_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
