3 Reasons For

Panasonic Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

On average projectors made by Panasonic are rated 90 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all projector brands that we have assessed.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other 12000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-TW342 which do not support 3D, the PT-TW342 supports 3D.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D and we think the Benq TH681+[plb_2977058_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D to this multimedia projector and we think the Acer P5515[plb_2850665_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-TW342, the PT-TW342 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq TH681+[plb_2977058_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Like most of the other 12000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the PT-TW342, the PT-TW342 does not support full HD.
