13 Reasons For

Very Low Running Costs

The M361X is in the cheapest 4% of all 92 data projectors of a similar type and age that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the M361X is only £69.

NEC Has Good Projector Reviews

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

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC M361X has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think cheaper projectors such as the VPL-SW235[pl_2284441_price], and the VPL-SW225[pl_2284439_price] both from Sony is also worth considering.

Other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider include the Hitachi CP-WX4022[plb_1887899_price].

4 Reasons Against

Recent Price Increase of £79.86

In the last 59 days the price of the M361X has increased by £79.86.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The NEC M361X does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the M361X also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Infocus IN3126[plb_1475113_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
