3 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

We checked the reviews from users and experts of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each projector brand. On average multimedia projectors from Panasonic have excellent reviews from experts and users.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Panasonic PT-TW342 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 12000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-TW342 do not support 3D image projection.

Other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Panasonic PT-TX312[plb_3430220_price].

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Acer P5515[plb_2850665_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 12000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PT-TW342, the PT-TW342 has a built-in speaker.

Other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper multimedia projectors such as the PT-TX312[pl_3430220_price], or the PT-LB412[pl_3354901_price] both from Panasonic.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Panasonic PT-TW343R[plb_3430219_price] is also worth considering.
