6 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Multimedia Projector Reviews

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

Supports 3D

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the PT-CW330 supports 3D.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other data projectors which support 3D currently available including because of it's better review score, the Optoma FX5200[plb_1711424_price], or the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PT-CW330, the Panasonic PT-CW330 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Viewsonic PRO8520HD[plb_1610101_price], the Optoma FX5200[plb_1711424_price], and the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Panasonic PT-CW330 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-CW330. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this Panasonic projector. In addition, this multimedia projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 704 x 576, 720 x 480, 832 x 624, 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+).

A 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution across all multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

The worst supported resolution across comparable types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Panasonic PT-CW330 does not support full HD. Most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-CW330 also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the Viewsonic PRO8520HD[plb_1610101_price], or the Sony VPL-FHZ55[plb_1596654_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age, the Panasonic PT-CW330 does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-CW330 is 2,600 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,700 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 3,100 ANSI lumens, the Panasonic PT-CW330 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PT-CW330.

We compared all the other 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the IN3134a[pl_2544144_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens), or the IN3136a[pl_2544145_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens) both from Infocus which also has a higher rating.

With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of only 4,000 hours, the PT-CW330 has one of the shorter service life of lamp (economic mode)s amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 37dB noise level data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic PTCW330U[plb_1925639_price].
