13 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The M362 has an average running cost of only £82 over 1 year based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the cheaper to run comparable spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

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

Supports Full HD Projection

The NEC M362 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the M362 do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer K335[plb_1598465_price], or the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price].

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the NEC L102[plb_2226819_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other data projectors of this type and age which do not support 3D image projection, the NEC M362 supports 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Infocus IN8606HD[plb_2110248_price] which is cheaper; or the Acer K335[plb_1598465_price], and the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the M362, the NEC M362 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Acer K335[plb_1598465_price] which has better reviews; or the Acer P5207[plb_1629284_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the NEC NP-L102[plb_2571624_price].

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The NEC M362 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). This multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 800, 1280 x 960, 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 a comparable time to the M362 the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the M362 is 3,300 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 300 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens. The NEC M362 has a quite bright projector brightness (3,600 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the M362.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 33 decibels, the NEC M362 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type. The quietest noise level of similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the M362 is 28dB, the loudest is 49dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.

There are a number of alternative 33dB noise level data projectors currently available which you might want to consider including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Acer K132[plb_1564923_price], or the Infocus IN8606HD[plb_2110248_price] or you might consider a better rated multimedia projector such as the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price].

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The NEC M362 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the M362 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power in Economic Mode

Projectors of this age and spec have lamp powers in economic mode of between 130W and 30,000W, and the average lamp power in economic mode is 2,600W. With a lamp power in economic mode of only 150 Watts, the NEC M362 has one of the dimmer lamp powers in economic mode amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only 1024 X 768 Pixels Maximum Analog Resolution

The biggest maximum analog resolution of the NEC M362 is 1024 x 768 pixels. That's 66% less maximum analog resolution than a 1920 x 1200 pixels data projector, which is the most common maximum analog resolution. Across all similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years the best maximum analog resolution is 1920 x 1200 pixels and the worst is 640 x 480 pixels.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The NEC M362 is a one audio in port projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

The NEC M362 has one of the louder noise levels in economy mode (33 decibels) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. The noise levels in economy mode of similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the M362 range from 26dB to 40dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

At only 0.55 inches, the NEC M362 has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the M362. Projectors of this age and spec have matrix sizes of between 0.45" and 0.96", and the average matrix size is 0.62".
