7 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

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

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-VW330 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-VW330.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the AAXA Technologies P450[plb_3117063_price], the Canon LV-7390[plb_2366057_price], or the DELL 4320[plb_1406486_price].

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the PT-VW330 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-VW330. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. This Panasonic multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1152 x 870, 1280 x 960, 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution across all 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

The worst supported resolution across comparable types of data projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Panasonic PT-VW330 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). The worst resolution of all projectors of a similar spec and age to the PT-VW330 is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 10 Watts, the Panasonic PT-VW330 has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the PT-VW330. 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago have RMS rated powers of between 1W and 19W.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The noise level (economic mode)s of data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PT-VW330 range from 26dB to 37dB. At only 29 decibels, the PT-VW330 has a quite quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PT-VW330.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

This data projector received an expert rating of 60% from pcworld.pl. If all the projectors of a similar age and spec are ranked by average expert review score then this Panasonic data projector is in the bottom 20%.

Does Not Support Full HD

The PT-VW330 does not support full HD. Most of the other data projectors of this age and type also do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price], the Hitachi CP-DH300[plb_2149864_price], or the Ricoh PJ X6180N[plb_3011085_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

The Panasonic PT-VW330 does not support 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-VW330 also do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D including the U300X[pl_1530119_price], the U260W[pl_1531484_price], or the U310W[pl_1531485_price] all from NEC.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PT-VW330 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-VW330 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price], or the Casio XJ-A256[plb_1787918_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Slow Dot Clock Scanning Frequency

The PT-VW330 has a fairly slow dot clock scanning frequency (only 140 megahertz) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. The slowest dot clock scanning frequency of projectors of this spec and age is 140MHz and the fastest is 170MHz.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio (L,R) in

The PT-VW330 is a one audio (L,R) in data projector. Most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years have between one and two audio (L,R) ins.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

The matrix sizes of multimedia projectors of this spec and age range from 0.45" to 0.8", and the average matrix size is 0.65". At only 0.59 inches, the PT-VW330 has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

3 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PT-VW330

Released Over Three Years Ago

This 2000:1 contrast ratio projector was released over three years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the PT-VW330 has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the PT-VW330.

We compared all the other 35dB noise level multimedia projectors to this data projector and we think the PT-DZ680[pl_1844610_price], and the PT-DW640[pl_1844603_price] both from Panasonic or the Casio XJ-A251[plb_1997772_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the PT-VW330 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

There are a number of other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to look at including the CP-DH300[pl_2149864_price], or the CP-EW300[pl_1940042_price] both from Hitachi or the NEC U300X[plb_1530119_price] which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the WUX-400[pl_2476895_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the WUX400ST[pl_2983475_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Canon or the Epson D6155W[plb_3060325_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
