3 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Excellent Multimedia Projector Reviews

Projectors produced by Panasonic generally have excellent reviews compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-TW343R has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-TW343R also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Benq TH681+ ($775.18) which has better reviews.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-TW343R, the PT-TW343R does not support 3D.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support 3D including the Benq TH681+ ($775.18) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most data projectors of this type and age do not support full HD. The Panasonic PT-TW343R is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Benq TH681+ ($775.18) is also worth considering.
