10 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Multimedia projectors produced by Panasonic generally have excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of the PT-DZ870 of 8,500 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest amongst comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PT-DZ870. Similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago have projector brightnesss of between 300 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Supports 3D

The Panasonic PT-DZ870 supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this type and age do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the PT-DZ870 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is in fact the best resolution across all projectors that came out more than two years ago.

The worst resolution across comparable types of projector is SVGA (800x600).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the PT-DZ870 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA).

This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-DZ870.

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

Quite Big Matrix Size

The PT-DZ870 has a fairly big matrix size (0.67 inches) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-DZ870. The average matrix size of projectors of this type and age is 0.62", and the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.96".

Chart Edit

Two Lamps Quantitys

Most multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago have between one and three lamps quantitys, including the PT-DZ870 which has two lamps quantitys.

Chart Edit

Very Big Bulb Power

The bulb powers of projectors of this age and type range from 15W to 840W. When compared to other data projectors of this age and spec, the bulb power of the PT-DZ870 of 840 Watts is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Uniformity

The average uniformity of projectors of this spec and age is 83%. With a uniformity of 90 percent, the Panasonic PT-DZ870 has a quite big uniformity compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-DZ870.

Chart Edit

Two Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) Ins

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-DZ870 have between one and four component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins, including the PT-DZ870 which has two component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-DZ870 does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-DZ870 do have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The PT-DZ870 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-DZ870 also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Panasonic PT-RZ670[plb_3246687_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PT-DZ870 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-DZ870 also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 40 decibels, the PT-DZ870 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the PT-DZ870. Comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago have noise levels of between 28dB and 49dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.

Chart Edit

Only Five BNC Input Portss

The PT-DZ870 is a five BNC input ports projector. Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-DZ870 have between one and nine BNC input portss.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

With a noise level (economic mode) of 35 decibels, the PT-DZ870 has a quite loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the PT-DZ870. The average noise level (economic mode) of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 30dB, and the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 40dB.

Chart Edit

Heavy

At 18.3 kilograms, the PT-DZ870 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The lightest comparable spec projector that has been around for around the same time as the PT-DZ870 is 360g heavy and the heaviest is 54kg.
