Reviews

Excellent Brand

Panasonic is one of the top rated data projector manufacturers according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all data projectors. 100% of those that bought a Panasonic data projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-CW240 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Panasonic PTCW330U which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Performance

Average Noise Level

The PT-CW240 has a pretty average noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic PTCW330U is also worth considering.
