11 Reasons For

Panasonic Data Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Panasonic projectors have an average rating of 90%, which is in the top 1% of all projector brands that we have looked at.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-DZ13 is 300 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 20,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. When compared to other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-DZ13 that we have checked, the projector brightness of the Panasonic PT-DZ13 of 12,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-DZ13 which do not support Full HD projection, the PT-DZ13 supports Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support Full HD projection and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M322 ($679.00) is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-DZ13 which do not support 3D image projection, the PT-DZ13 supports 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Panasonic PT-DZ13 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution across all projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-DZ13.

Across comparable types of projector the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600).

Very Big Matrix Size

10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-DZ13 have matrix sizes of between 0.45" and 0.96", and the average matrix size is 0.62". With a matrix size of 0.96 inches, the PT-DZ13 has one of the biggest matrix sizes amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Two Lamps

Most multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-DZ13 have between one and three lamps, including the Panasonic PT-DZ13 which has two lamps.

Chart Edit

Three RS-232 Ports

Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PT-DZ13 only have between one and two RS-232 ports, however the Panasonic PT-DZ13 has three RS-232 ports.

Chart Edit

Nine BNC Input Ports

The Panasonic PT-DZ13 has more BNC input ports than most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-DZ13. Most of the projectors of this age and type only have between one and eight BNC input ports, however this projector has nine BNC input ports.

Chart Edit

Very Big Lamp Power

With a lamp power of 380 Watts, the PT-DZ13 has a very big lamp power compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-DZ13. The average lamp power of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-DZ13 is 240W, and the lamp power range from 15W to 470W.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This data projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is typical of many similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The PT-DZ13 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the NEC NP-M282 ($599.00) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PT-DZ13 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-DZ13 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the PowerLite 1222, or the 1985WU ($1,888.56) both from Epson or the Benq W1500 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Quite Small Uniformity

The average uniformity of projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 83%. When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-DZ13, the uniformity of the PT-DZ13 of only 0.9 percent is one of the smallest.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The PT-DZ13 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level

When compared to other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-DZ13, the noise level of the PT-DZ13 of 45 decibels is one of the loudest. The noise levels of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-DZ13 range from 28dB to 49dB.

Other projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Panasonic PT-DW11 ($19,999.00) (45dB).
