5 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Multimedia projectors built by Panasonic generally have excellent ratings compared to other brands.

Supports 3D

The PTCW330U supports 3D, as do most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PTCW330U.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the IN3134a (£512.99), or the IN3136a (£568.98) both from Infocus is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PTCW330U has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PRO8520HD.

Other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at include the Infocus IN3134a (£512.99).

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most commonly found projector native resolution on similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Two Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) Ins

The PTCW330U has more component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins than most of the projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PTCW330U. Most of the 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PTCW330U only have one component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in, however this data projector has two component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Panasonic PTCW330U does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Viewsonic PRO8520HD, or the Sony VPL-FHZ55 (£4,689.96) is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Panasonic PTCW330U does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The PTCW330U has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 3,100 ANSI lumens) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The dimmest projector brightness of 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years is 2,600 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,700 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the IN3134a (£512.99) (4,200 ANSI lumens), or the IN3136a (£568.98) (4,500 ANSI lumens) both from Infocus.

Only Two VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The PTCW330U is a two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector.

4 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PTCW330U

Average Running Costs

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the PTCW330U will cost £154 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 13 data projectors of this type and age.

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Panasonic released the PTCW330U.

Average Noise Level

The PTCW330U has a pretty typical noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Sony VPL-FHZ55 (£4,689.96) (40dB) which also has a higher rating.

1280 X 800 Supported Graphics Resolutions

The PTCW330U supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800. That's over three times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA).

BPBC would recommend the Panasonic PT-CW330U (Verified Purchase)

We are using the projector about 3ft away from the wall. The image is still strong and bright. I was concerned when we purchased it that it wouldn't be bright enough for the area it was going. We... Read more…
