12 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The M302 is one of the cheaper to run projectors that have been available for more than two years that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the M302 will cost only £75 over 1 year to run.

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

NEC is one of the better rated projector manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and NEC also has good reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age which do not support 3D image projection, the NEC M302 supports 3D image projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Optoma ML550[plb_1947306_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC M302 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the M302 also have a built-in speaker.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price].

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The NEC M302 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 768, 1280 x 800, 1280 x 960, 1600 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

The average RMS rated power of projectors of this spec and age is 8.9W, and the RMS rated power range from 1W to 20W. The NEC M302 has a fairly high RMS rated power (20 Watts) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Most comparable spec data projectors that came out more than two years ago have between one and two HDMI ports, including the NEC M302 which has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Similar spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the M302 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 1,000h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,400h. The NEC M302 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode (8,000 hours) compared to most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 35dB, and the noise levels range from 28dB to 49dB. The NEC M302 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 30 decibels) amongst data projectors of this age.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 30dB noise level projectors currently available including the Optoma ML550[plb_1947306_price], or the Acer X1240[plb_1403576_price] which has better reviews.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The NEC M302 does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors of this age and type also do not support Full HD projection.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of this age and spec do not support WiFi connectivity. The NEC M302 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this data projector and we think the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
