6 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

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

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PT-VW340 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PT-VW340.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at including the CP-CW250WN, or the CP-CW300WN both from Hitachi which is cheaper.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to look at include the Sony VPL-SW225.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The PT-VW340 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-VW340. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this Panasonic projector. This data projector also support graphics resolutions of 640 x 400, 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1600 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x 1200 (WU. The best resolution of all data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-VW340 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most similar spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-VW340 do not support 3D image projection. The PT-VW340 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Infocus IN3126.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-VW340, the PT-VW340 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the CP-CW300WN, or the CP-CX300WN both from Hitachi which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The PT-VW340 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider include the Hitachi CP-WX4022 ($1,032.99).

Quite Small Matrix Size

With a matrix size of only 0.59 inches, the PT-VW340 has one of the smaller matrix sizes amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-VW340 have matrix sizes of between 0.55" and 0.75".

3 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-VW340

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this multimedia projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

The Panasonic PT-VW340 has a pretty standard projector brightness (3,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-VW340.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the Panasonic PT-VW340 has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PT-VW340.

There are a number of other 35dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the NEC VE281.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the Infocus IN3126 (33dB) which is also cheaper.
