8 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Multimedia Projector Reviews

Projectors manufactured by Panasonic generally have excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD Projection

The PT-DZ680 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-DZ680 do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other data projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might want to consider including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector ($499.00) which has better reviews.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the Panasonic PT-DZ680 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-DZ680. Projectors that were released more than two years ago have projector brightness of between 110 ANSI lumens and 10,000 ANSI lumens.

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

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Panasonic PT-DZ680 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is in fact the best resolution across all data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-DZ680.

An XGA (1024x768) native projector resolution is the worst resolution across similar types of data projector.

Two Lamps

The PT-DZ680 is a two lamp projector. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age have between one and two lamps.

Chart Edit

Two RS-232 Ports

The Panasonic PT-DZ680 has more RS-232 ports than most of the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years. This Panasonic projector is a two RS-232 port projector compared to most of the projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-DZ680 which only have one RS-232 port.

Chart Edit

Four VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Panasonic PT-DZ680 is a four VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector. Most of the other projectors of this type and age only have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

Across all the data projectors of this age and spec the uniformities range from 78% to 95%, and the average uniformity is 86%. At 90 percent, the PT-DZ680 has a fairly big uniformity compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The PT-DZ680 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years which have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the PT-DZ680, the PT-DZ680 does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-DZ680, the PT-DZ680 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to look at include the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro which also has a higher rating.
