9 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each data projector brand. On average multimedia projectors from Panasonic have excellent ratings from experts and users.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-EW730 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of this age and type.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including cheaper projectors such as the PA522[pl_2406092_price], or the PA572[pl_2406093_price] both from NEC.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Panasonic PT-EX800ZLE[plb_2130355_price] is also worth considering.
