7 Reasons For

Panasonic Multimedia Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Data projectors from Panasonic have an average rating of 90%, which is in the top 1% of all projector brands that we have assessed.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PT-VW340 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the PT-VW340.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Epson EB-425W[plb_1844228_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The PT-VW340 does not support 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support 3D.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to consider including the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price].

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-VW340, the Panasonic PT-VW340 does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PT-VW340 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support wi-Fi.

Other projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to look at include the EB-425W[pl_1844228_price], or the BrightLink 436Wi[pl_1875520_price] both from Epson which also has a higher rating.
