12 Reasons For

One Industry Award

This projector received a "Hot Product" award from Projectorreviews.com.

Very Low Running Costs

The M363W is one of the most economic to run data projectors of this spec and age that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the M363W will cost only £82 over 1 year to run.

Good Brand

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

Easy to Use

One NEC M363W reviewer who reviewed the NEC M363W concluded that it was easy to setup. Projectorreviews.com wrote last year “Easy to setup”.

Good Picture Quality

One person mentioned in their reviews that it had a sharp image. Last year Projectorreviews.com said “Good sharpness with any normally used resolution” in their NEC M363W review.

Good Size

One NEC M363W owner who bought it concluded that it was compact. Projectorreviews.com wrote last year “Presentation flexibility in a compact package that should please business” .

Supports Full HD Projection

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year, the NEC M363W supports Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors which support Full HD projection and we think because of it's better review score, the M333XS[pl_3113388_price], and the M323W[pl_3058192_price] both from NEC or the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the M363W, the NEC M363W has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Philips HDP1550[plb_2138690_price], the NEC M333XS[plb_3113388_price], or the Hitachi CP -AX2505[plb_3406374_price] which has better reviews.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the NEC M363W is 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 NEC multimedia projector). In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 800 x 600 (SVGA), 832 x 624, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+). Across all projectors of a comparable age and spec to the M363W the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M363W the RMS rated power range from 2W to 26W, and the average RMS rated power is 13W. The NEC M363W has one of the higher RMS rated power (20 Watts) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of 5,500 hours, the NEC M363W has one of the longer lamp service lives amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average lamp service life of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the M363W is 6,200h, and the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than a year.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Inferior Remote Control

One customer wrote in their reviews that the product did not have a good remote control. Projectorreviews.com said in their NEC M363W review “Remote can be difficult to operate in a dark room, since it has no backlight or glowinthedark buttons” .

Price Has Increased by £99.29

The price of the M363W has increased by £99.29 in the last 59 days.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year support 3D image projection, however the NEC M363W does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Philips HDP1550[plb_2138690_price], the NEC M333XS[plb_3113388_price], or the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most data projectors that were launched more than a year ago do not support WiFi connectivity. The NEC M363W is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to look at include the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price], or the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] both from Panasonic which also has a higher rating.
