Excellent Brand

Data projectors built by Panasonic generally have excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Just Released Five Months Ago

This projector has only been on the market for five months.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Panasonic PT-RZ970 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched in the last 12 months do not support Full HD projection.

Alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might also want to look at include the Panasonic PT-RZ770[plb_3899138_price] which is cheaper.
