7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the M332, the NEC M332 does not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Acer X1111[plb_1377014_price], the Vivitek H1180HD[plb_2341133_price], or the Panasonic PT-DZ21[plb_1986217_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the M332 do not support Full HD projection. The NEC M332 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Acer X1311[plb_1374828_price], the Panasonic PT-DZ13[plb_2000154_price], or the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The NEC M332 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the PowerLite 1222[pl_2225031_price], or the EB-X03[pl_2263795_price] both from Epson or the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price].
