7 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Projectors manufactured by Panasonic are some of the best projectors according to average reviews from owners and experts.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other projectors of this age and type which do not support 3D, the PT-CW230U supports 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this data projector and we think the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-CW230U has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The PT-CW230U has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). The best resolution of all projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-CW230U is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is XGA (1024x768).

Chart Edit

Two Audio (L,R) Ins

The PT-CW230U is a two audio (L,R) in projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The Panasonic PT-CW230U has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) (only 28 decibels) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The quietest noise level (economic mode) of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 26dB and the loudest is 37dB.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years do not support full HD. The PT-CW230U is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

Other projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider include the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-CW230U do not support wi-Fi. The PT-CW230U is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to consider including the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which is also higher rated.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-CW230U have projector brightnesss of between 110 ANSI lumens and 10,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the PT-CW230U has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-CW230U.

If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Hitachi CP-EX250[plb_1874387_price] (2,700 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

2 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-CW230U

Released Over Four Years Ago

Panasonic released the PT-CW230U over four years ago.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 36 decibels, the PT-CW230U has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

We compared all the other 36dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Benq SP870[plb_1387494_price] (36dB).
