17 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

Projector expert review site PC Mag scored this data projector 70 out of 100.

Running Costs Are Very Low

The M322 is one of the most economic to run projectors of this spec and age that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the M322 is only £76.

Acceptable Noise Level

Some people agreed that the NEC M322 was noisy. Pcmag.com mentioned “It offers good brightness, sharp text, loud sound” in their review of this projector and rated the NEC M322 70 out of 100. Pcmag.com also mentioned “NEC's NP-M322W is a WXGA data projector that delivers solid brightness, sharp text, loud sound”. Pcmag.com also wrote “The NEC Display Solutions NP-M322X ($699) is a solid data projector, for classroom or business use, that provides sharp text, loud sound”.

Robust

Three people who bought it thought it was well made. Pcmag.com wrote on expert review site PC Mag two years ago “The NEC Display Solutions NP-M322W ($799) is a solid data projector for classroom or business use” in their NEC M322 review and rated this projector 70 out of 100.

Good Sound Quality

Some NEC M322 reviewers who reviewed this projector considered that it had good sound quality.

Good Brand

NEC has good average ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Chart

Good Product Quality

One customer who reviewed the NEC M322 reckoned that it was good quality. Pc Mag said on PC Mag “Good data-image quality”.

Supports Full HD Projection

The NEC M322 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the M322 also support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors which support Full HD projection and we think cheaper data projectors such as the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price], and the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] both from Panasonic or the NEC M403W[plb_3078396_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NEC M322 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the M322.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Benq MW855UST[plb_3333837_price], the NEC M303WS[plb_3113387_price], and the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the M322, the NEC M322 has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Benq MW855UST[plb_3333837_price], the NEC M303WS[plb_3113387_price], or the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price] which is cheaper.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the NEC M322 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the M322. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. In addition, this multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 768, 1280 x 800, 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 were released one year ago the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Analog Resolution

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than a year do not support WiFi connectivity. The NEC M322 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 is also worth considering.

Chart Edit
