7 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Multimedia Projector Reviews

Panasonic is one of the top rated projector manufacturers according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-CW240, the PT-CW240 supports 3D.

We compared all the other data projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think the Optoma FX5200[plb_1711424_price], and the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-CW240 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-CW240.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PRO8520HD[plb_1610101_price], the Optoma FX5200[plb_1711424_price], and the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the PT-CW240 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this data projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+).

This multimedia projector's resolution (1920 x 1080 (HD 1080)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all projectors that were released more than two years ago.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution amongst similar types of multimedia projector.
