13 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The M303WS is in the cheapest 4% of all 82 projectors of this type and age that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the M303WS is only £70.

NEC Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all NEC projectors and also specifically for NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases NEC had good ratings.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NEC M303WS supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the M303WS.

Alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to look at include the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price] which is cheaper; or the NEC M322[plb_2268469_price] which has better reviews.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Benq MW855UST[plb_3333837_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the M303WS, the NEC M303WS has a built-in speaker.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price] or you might consider a better rated multimedia projector such as the NEC M322[plb_2268469_price] are also worth considering.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Benq MW855UST[plb_3333837_price] is also worth considering.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The NEC M303WS supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the M303WS. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. This data projector also support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution across all comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago.

Across similar types of projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

7 Reasons Against

Price Has Increased by £137.18

In the last 25 days the M303WS has increased in price by £137.18.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the other data projectors of this type and age support Full HD projection, however the NEC M303WS does not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might want to consider including the NEC M322[plb_2268469_price] or the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price], or the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] both from Panasonic.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the M303WS do not support WiFi connectivity. The NEC M303WS is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price], or the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] both from Panasonic which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
