7 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Projector Reviews

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of data projectors to determine an average rating for each multimedia projector manufacturer. On average multimedia projectors from NEC have good reviews from users and experts.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC M420 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the M420 also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The NEC M420 supports a maximum resolution of 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 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the M420. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this NEC data projector. In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 768, 1280 x 800, 1366 x 768, 1440 x 900, 1600 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVG. The resolution of all data projectors of a similar type and age to the M420 ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

Most of the other data projectors of this type and age only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, however the NEC M420 has three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Two Component Video in Ports

The NEC M420 is a two component video in port projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The NEC M420 has one of the higher RMS rated power (10 Watts) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The RMS rated power of multimedia projectors of this spec and age range from 1W to 19W.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the M420 do not support Full HD projection. The NEC M420 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The NEC M420 does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of a similar age and type to the M420 do not support WiFi connectivity. The NEC M420 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider including the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of data projectors of this age and type is 2,500h, the longest is 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 4,100h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 3,500 hours, the NEC M420 has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the M420 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the NEC M420 which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

Most data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the M420 have between one and two audio in ports, including the NEC M420 which has one audio in port.
