11 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The M271 is one of the cheapest to run data projectors of a comparable age and type that we have analysed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the M271 will cost only £65 over 1 year to run.

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

NEC 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews on average and across all projectors NEC is one of the superior manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC M271 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at including the VPL-DX127[pl_2514843_price], the VPL-DX142[pl_2446393_price], or the VPL-DW122[pl_2514842_price] all from Sony which has better reviews.

The highest resolution supported by the NEC M271 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This NEC projector also support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1280 x 960, 1600 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (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). Data projectors of this type and age graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many comparable spec data projectors that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Analog Resolution

This multimedia projector has a maximum analog resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is the most frequently found maximum analog resolution on similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the M271 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, however the NEC M271 has three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The NEC M271 has a very long service life of lamp in economic mode (10,000 hours) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the M271. The service life of lamp in economic mode of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the M271 range from 230h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,800h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The lamp service lives of projectors of this age and spec range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,400h. With a lamp service life of 6,000 hours, the NEC M271 has a quite long lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M271.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

When compared to other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years that we have assessed, the NEC M271's noise level of only 26 decibels is one of the quietest. The noise levels of similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the M271 range from 26dB to 45dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.

8 Reasons Against

Average Expert Reviews

The average expert rating of this data projector is 65% based on two expert reviews from sites including PC Mag and IT Reviews.com.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The NEC M271 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the M271 also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most data projectors of a similar age and spec to the M271 do not support Full HD projection. The NEC M271 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The NEC M271 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the M271 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The NEC M271 has a quite dim projector brightness (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the M271. Projectors that have been around for around the same time as the M271 have projector brightness of between 100 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens.

If this 3000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the VPL-DX142[pl_2446393_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-DX147[pl_2516968_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Sony which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Small Lamp Power

The lamp power of projectors of this spec and age range from 140W to 400W, and the average lamp power is 240W. When compared to other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the M271 that we have checked the lamp power of, the NEC M271's lamp power of only 145 Watts is one of the smallest.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power in Economic Mode

The NEC M271 has one of the dimmer lamp powers in economic mode (only 110 Watts) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. The lamp powers in economic mode of multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the M271 range from 110W to 6,000W, and the average lamp power in economic mode is 1,300W.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

The NEC M271 has a fairly dim brightness in economy mode (only 1,620 ANSI lumen) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the M271. The brightness in economy mode of data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the M271 range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 4,400 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 2,400 ANSI lumens.
