4 Reasons For

Panasonic Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Projectors produced by Panasonic are some of the best projectors according to average expert and user reviews.

Supports Full HD

The Panasonic PT-DW740ELS supports full HD, unlike most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-DW740ELS which do not support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative data projectors which support full HD currently available including the Sony VPL-DW125[plb_1443008_price] which has better reviews.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 500 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 16,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens. The PT-DW740ELS has one of the brighter projector brightnesss (7,000 ANSI lumens) amongst 2500:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the CP-HD9320[pl_3868820_price] (8,200 ANSI lumens), the CP-WX9210[pl_2240713_price] (8,500 ANSI lumens), or the CP-WU9410[pl_2240694_price] (8,500 ANSI lumens) all from Hitachi.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-DW740ELS does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-DW740ELS which have a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to consider include the Ricoh PJ WX4130[plb_2922469_price].

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the PT-DW740ELS does not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D including the Vivitek Qumi Q2[plb_1925642_price] which also has a higher rating.
