Panasonic Data Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

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

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Panasonic PT-LW330 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-LW330.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The PT-LW330 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-LW330. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. This Panasonic data projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA).

This multimedia projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-LW330.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of multimedia projector.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

Projectors of this age and spec have dot clock scanning frequencies of between 20MHz and 170MHz, and the average dot clock scanning frequency is 81MHz. At 162 megahertz, the PT-LW330 has a fairly fast dot clock scanning frequency compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The PT-LW330 has one of the longer service life of lamp in economic mode (8,000 hours) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age. Similar spec projectors that have been around for more than two years have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 3,500h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,100h.

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 the most frequently found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of only 28 decibels, the PT-LW330 has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago. 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-LW330 have noise levels in economy mode of between 26dB and 40dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

The lowest power consumption during PowerSave of similar spec data projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 0.2W, the highest is 280W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 170W. At only 0.5 Watts, the Panasonic PT-LW330 has a quite low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PT-LW330.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-LW330, the PT-LW330 does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-LW330, the Panasonic PT-LW330 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the NEC NP-M322 ($679.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Panasonic PT-LW330 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-LW330 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider include the PowerLite 1222, or the 1985WU ($1,920.29) both from Epson or the Benq W1500 which also has a higher rating.

Only Supports One Video Colour Mode

The number of video colour modes supported by the Panasonic PT-LW330 is more than most 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to it. This data projector supports a Dynamic video colour mode, which is the most frequently supported video colour mode supported by comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-LW330.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Uniformity

The PT-LW330 has a quite small uniformity (only 80 percent) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-LW330. 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-LW330 have uniformities of between 0.9% and 100%, and the average uniformity is 83%.

3 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-LW330

Released Over Two Years Ago

Panasonic released the PT-LW330 over two years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the PT-LW330 has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 37dB noise level projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson EB-X24.

Other projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the EB-W28 (37dB), or the EB-W03 (37dB) both from Epson.

Average Projector Brightness

The PT-LW330 has a relatively average projector brightness (3,300 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-LW330.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the 1980WU ($1,109.99) (4,400 ANSI lumens), or the 1985WU ($1,920.29) (4,800 ANSI lumens) both from Epson which is also higher rated.
