9 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Panasonic is one of the best data projector brands according to average owner and expert review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-LW330 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Epson PowerLite 1222 ($695.00), and the NEC NP-M282 ($599.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Panasonic PT-LW330 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-LW330. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1280 x 800 (WXGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution amongst all 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

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

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found projector native resolution on similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

At 162 megahertz, the PT-LW330 has a fairly fast dot clock scanning frequency compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-LW330. The average dot clock scanning frequency of projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-LW330 is 81MHz, and the dot clock scanning frequencys range from 20MHz to 170MHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At 8,000 hours, the PT-LW330 has a quite long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-LW330. The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of data projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-LW330 range from 3,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 7,100h.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This data projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is the most commonly found ethernet LAN data rates on data projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

With a noise level (economic mode) of only 28 decibels, the Panasonic PT-LW330 has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s amongst similar spec projectors of this age. Across all the projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-LW330 the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 40dB.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

The average power consumption (PowerSave) of projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-LW330 is 160W, and the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.2W to 280W. At only 0.5 Watts, the PT-LW330 has a fairly low power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-LW330.

6 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support 3D. The PT-LW330 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The PT-LW330 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PT-LW330 also do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Benq W1300 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago do not support wi-Fi. The Panasonic PT-LW330 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Alternative data projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to look at include the Benq W1500 ($1,976.29), or the Epson PowerLite 1222 ($695.00).

Only Supports One Video Colour Modes

The number of video colour modes supported by the PT-LW330 is more than most projectors of a comparable age and spec to it. This data projector supports a Dynamic video colour modes, which is the most commonly supported video colour modes supported by multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-LW330.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Uniformity

The smallest uniformity of projectors of a similar age and type to the PT-LW330 is 0.9%, the biggest is 100%, and the average uniformity is 83%. With a uniformity of only 80 percent, the PT-LW330 has one of the smaller uniformitys amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

3 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-LW330

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this multimedia projector was released.

Average Noise Level

The Panasonic PT-LW330 has a pretty average noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 37dB noise level data projectors currently available including the Epson PowerLite W17 ($495.00) which has better reviews.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Panasonic PT-LW330 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the PT-LW330.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Epson BrightLink 595WI+ ($1,936.99) which has better reviews.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Epson 1980WU ($1,196.99) (4,400 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
