6 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Panasonic is one of the leading data projector manufacturers according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-DZ870 which do not support 3D image projection, the PT-DZ870 supports 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of 1000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-DZ870 range from 55 ANSI lumens to 8,500 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,800 ANSI lumens. At 8,500 ANSI lumens, the PT-DZ870 has a very bright projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-DZ870.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Panasonic PT-DZ870 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-DZ870 the worst resolution is VGA (640x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The PT-DZ870 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). Across all data projectors of this age and spec the worst resolution is 640 x 400 and the best is 4096 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Very Big Uniformity

When compared to other data projectors of this type and age that we have checked the uniformity of, the PT-DZ870's uniformity of 90 percent is one of the biggest. Similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-DZ870 have uniformities of between 85% and 90%, and the average uniformity is 88%.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The PT-DZ870 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-DZ870 also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-DZ870, the PT-DZ870 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-DZ870 have a built-in speaker, however the PT-DZ870 does not have a built-in speaker.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Canon SX-6000 which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

At 40 decibels, the Panasonic PT-DZ870 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PT-DZ870. The average noise level of similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-DZ870 is 36dB.

We compared all the other 40dB noise level multimedia projectors to this projector and we think the Canon SX-6000 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Wide

Projectors of this age and type have widths of between 72mm and 500mm, and the average width is 250mm. With a width of 498 millimeters, the PT-DZ870's width is one of the widest amongst 1000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-DZ870.

Chart Edit

Very Heavy

Across all the projectors that are a similar age to the PT-DZ870 the weights range from 110g to 19kg. When compared to other 1000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-DZ870 that we have assessed, the PT-DZ870's weight of 18.3 kilograms is one of the heaviest.
