11 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Projector Reviews

On average Panasonic multimedia projectors are rated 90%, which is in the top 1% of all data projector brands that we have looked at.

Just Released Eight Months Ago

This data projector is one of the most recent projectors to be released. As such it is likely to have better features than some of the older projectors.

Supports 3D

The Panasonic PT-EW550 supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-EW550 do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the PT-EW550 which do not support full HD, the PT-EW550 supports full HD.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Panasonic PT-EW550 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-EW550 also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Panasonic PT-EX520LEJ[plb_3898814_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Panasonic PT-EX520EJ[plb_3898813_price].

This data projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution across all 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched in the last 12 months.

An XGA (1024x768) projector native resolution is the worst resolution amongst similar types of data projector.
