5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The PT-TW230U does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support full HD.

Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to look at include the Optoma HD23[plb_1830006_price] which is also higher rated.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

The average dot clock scanning frequency of similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-TW230U is 150MHz. At only 140 megahertz, the PT-TW230U has a fairly slow dot clock scanning frequency compared to most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

It was over four years ago when this projector was released.

Average Noise Level

This projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many data projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

The PT-TW230U has a relatively standard projector brightness (2,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-TW230U.

We compared all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma HD23[plb_1830006_price] is also worth considering.
