6 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Projector Reviews

We checked the reviews from experts and owners of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each projector brand. On average Panasonic multimedia projectors have excellent reviews from owners and experts.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The PT-CW330 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-CW330, the PT-CW330 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The PT-CW330 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over two times the resolution of a 1280 x 800 projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors that have been around for more than two years. This projector also support graphics resolutions of 704 x 576, 720 x 480, 832 x 624, 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1080 (HD 1080)) is actually the best supported resolution across all data projectors of this age and spec.

Across similar types of projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-CW330, the PT-CW330 does not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might also want to consider including the Viewsonic PRO8520HD[plb_1610101_price], or the Sony VPL-FHZ55[plb_1596654_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Panasonic PT-CW330 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-CW330 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

At only 3,100 ANSI lumens, the Panasonic PT-CW330 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-CW330. The average projector brightness of projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-CW330 is 3,700 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 2,600 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price].

If you want a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the IN3134a[pl_2544144_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens), or the IN3136a[pl_2544145_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens) both from Infocus which also has a higher rating.

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The Panasonic PT-CW330 has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode (only 4,000 hours) compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-CW330. The service life of lamp in economic mode of 8000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PT-CW330 range from 3,000h to 6,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 4,400h.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the PT-CW330 has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of this type and age.

We compared this projector to all the other 37dB noise level projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] is also worth considering.
