8 Reasons For

Panasonic Multimedia Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Data projectors from Panasonic have an average rating of 90 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,000 ANSI lumens. The PT-DZ680 has a quite bright projector brightness (6,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If you want a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Hitachi CP-X9110[plb_2240776_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens), or the Christie DXG1051-Q[plb_3022337_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The PT-DZ680 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is in fact the best resolution amongst all projectors of this age and spec.

Amongst similar types of multimedia projector the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The PT-DZ680 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-DZ680.

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

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of similar spec data projectors that have been around for more than two years range from 28dB to 42dB. With a noise level of only 35 decibels, the PT-DZ680 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Two RS-232 Ports

The PT-DZ680 has more RS-232 ports than most of the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago. This multimedia projector is a two RS-232 port multimedia projector compared to most of the similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-DZ680 which only have one RS-232 port.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The PT-DZ680 has a quite quiet noise level in economy mode (only 29 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-DZ680. The quietest noise level in economy mode of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-DZ680 is 26dB and the loudest is 37dB.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

Multimedia projectors of this type and age have power consumption during PowerSave of between 0.2W and 460W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 190W. The PT-DZ680 has one of the lower power consumption during PowerSave (only 0.3 Watts) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The PT-DZ680 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-DZ680 do have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Panasonic PT-DZ680 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-DZ680 also do not support Full HD projection.

Other data projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PT-DZ680 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-DZ680 also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PT-DZ680 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-DZ680 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to look at include the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which is also higher rated.

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the PT-DZ680 which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Very Heavy

The weights of comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 370g to 23kg. At 16 kilograms, the Panasonic PT-DZ680 is quite heavy compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.
