7 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Projector Reviews

On average Panasonic multimedia projectors are rated 90 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all projector brands that we have looked at.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 6,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-DW640ULS has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PT-DW640ULS. Comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago have projector brightness of between 110 ANSI lumens and 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,000 ANSI lumens.

If you are looking for a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Christie DXG1051-Q (10,000 ANSI lumens).

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The PT-DW640ULS has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all multimedia projectors of this age and type the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Two Lamps

Most data projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-DW640ULS have between one and two lamps, including the PT-DW640ULS which has two lamps.

Chart Edit

Two RS-232 Ports

The PT-DW640ULS has more RS-232 ports than most of the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. Most of the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-DW640ULS only have one RS-232 port, however this multimedia projector has two RS-232 ports.

Chart Edit

Four VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Panasonic PT-DW640ULS has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-DW640ULS. This projector is a four VGA (D-Sub) port projector compared to most of the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

The smallest uniformity of projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 78%, the biggest is 95%, and the average uniformity is 86%. With a uniformity of 90 percent, the PT-DW640ULS has a fairly big uniformity compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-DW640ULS.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PT-DW640ULS does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-DW640ULS also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Panasonic PT-DW640ULS does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-DW640ULS also do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might also want to consider including the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro.
