8 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Data projectors built by Panasonic are some of the best data projectors according to average reviews from owners and experts.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years have projector brightnesss of between 110 ANSI lumens and 10,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 6,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-DZ680 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If this Panasonic data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Hitachi CP-X9110[plb_2240776_price] (10,000 ANSI lumens).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the PT-DZ680 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution.

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution across all multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-DZ680.

Across comparable types of projector the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Panasonic PT-DZ680 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution amongst all similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-DZ680.

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

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 28dB, the loudest is 42dB, and the average noise level is 36dB. The PT-DZ680 has a fairly quiet noise level (only 35 decibels) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Two RS-232 Portss

The Panasonic PT-DZ680 has more RS-232 portss than most of the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-DZ680. This Panasonic projector is a two RS-232 ports multimedia projector compared to most of the similar spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-DZ680 which only have one RS-232 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

Across all the projectors of this spec and age the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 37dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB. The PT-DZ680 has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) (only 29 decibels) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PT-DZ680 the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.2W to 460W, and the average power consumption (PowerSave) is 200W. The PT-DZ680 has a quite low power consumption (PowerSave) (only 0.3 Watts) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most of the other projectors of this type and age have a built-in speaker(s), however the Panasonic PT-DZ680 does not have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Most similar spec projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support full HD. The PT-DZ680 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support full HD which you might also want to look at including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price].

Does Not Support 3D

The PT-DZ680 does not support 3D. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-DZ680 also do not support 3D.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D that you might want to look at including the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PT-DZ680 does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-DZ680 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
