Expert Reviews Are Excellent

This multimedia projector received a rating of 94% from projector expert review website pcformat.pl. If all the data projectors of a similar spec and age are ranked by average expert review score then this data projector is in the top 1%.

Running Costs Are Very Low

The L51W is in the cheapest 4% of all 32 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the L51W is only £38.

NEC Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

NEC is one of the better rated projector brands according to average reviews from experts and owners, and NEC also has good reviews for its 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NEC L51W supports 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The NEC L51W supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the L51W do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC L51W has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the L51W also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the NEC P501X[plb_1555276_price] is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The NEC L51W supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of a similar spec and age to the L51W. This NEC multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 960, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago the best resolution is 4096 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 400.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The NEC L51W has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution.

A WXGA (1280x800) native projector resolution is in fact the best resolution across all data projectors of this spec and age.

Across similar types of projector the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768).

Very Long Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of projectors of a similar type and age to the L51W is 4,600h. At 20,000 hours, the NEC L51W has a very long lamp service life compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 1.2 kilograms, the NEC L51W is quite light compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. The weights of data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the L51W range from 3.4g to 28kg, and the average weight is 3.9kg.

Narrow

At only 226 millimeters, the NEC L51W is fairly narrow compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the L51W. The widths of comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 98mm to 540mm.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of a comparable type and age to the L51W do not support Full HD projection. The NEC L51W is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think the NEC P501X[plb_1555276_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the L51W the projector brightness range from 500 ANSI lumens to 13,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,700 ANSI lumens. When compared to other similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have assessed, the projector brightness of the NEC L51W of only 500 ANSI lumens is one of the dimmest.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the NEC P501X[plb_1555276_price] (5,000 ANSI lumens).
