13 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

Projector expert review site PC Mag scored this projector 70%.

Running Costs Are Low

Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the NP-M283X is only £84, which makes it one of the cheaper to run projectors of a comparable type and age.

Good Product Quality

Several customers said in their reviews that it was good quality. Expert review site Pcmag.com mentioned “A DLP-based XGA (1,024-by-768) data projector designed for classrooms and conference rooms, provides good data-image quality and a thorough set of connection choices” in their NEC NP-M283X review. Pcmag.com also mentioned “The DLP-based NEC Display Solutions NP-M283X offers good data-image quality”. Pc Mag said in their NEC NP-M283X review “Good data-image quality in our tests”.

NEC Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings as do all projectors manufactured by NEC.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC NP-M283X has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-M283X.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Optoma W515, the NEC NP-M363W, or the Canon WX320 (£491.46) which has better reviews.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The NP-M283X supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of this type and age. This data projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA). The worst resolution of all data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the NP-M283X is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-M283X the RMS rated power range from 2W to 26W. At 20 Watts, the NP-M283X has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the NP-M283X.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The NP-M283X has a quite quiet noise level (only 31 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the NP-M283X. The quietest noise level of similar spec multimedia projectors that were released one year ago is 25dB and the loudest is 47dB.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Benq MW853UST+ (£284.70) (33dB).

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The service life of lamp in economic mode of comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-M283X range from 3,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,400h. At 10,000 hours, the NEC NP-M283X has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The NEC NP-M283X is a two HDMI port data projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The NEC NP-M283X has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode (only 27 decibels) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average noise level in economy mode of projectors of this age and type is 30dB.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago that we have assessed, the power consumption in economy mode of the NP-M283X of only 170 Watts is one of the lowest. The power consumption in economy mode of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-M283X range from 170W to 760W.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other data projectors of this age and type support 3D image projection, however the NP-M283X does not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection which you might also want to look at including the Acer H6517ST, the Optoma W515, or the Epson Home Cinema 600 which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The NEC NP-M283X does not support Full HD projection, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the NP-M283X which support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Epson Home Cinema 600, the NEC PH1202HL, or the Acer H6517ST which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most data projectors of a similar spec and age to the NP-M283X do not support WiFi connectivity. The NP-M283X is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider include the Powerlite W28+, or the EX7235 (£515.01) both from Epson or the Hitachi CP-AW2505 which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,800 ANSI lumens, the NEC NP-M283X has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the NP-M283X. The projector brightness of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-M283X range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the Acer H6517ST (£321.10) (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Epson Home Cinema 600 (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Lamp Power in Economic Mode

At only 120 Watts, the NP-M283X has a quite dim lamp power in economic mode compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the NP-M283X. The dimmest lamp power in economic mode of projectors of a comparable spec and age to the NP-M283X is 120W, the brightest is 280W, and the average lamp power in economic mode is 180W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 200 Watts, the NP-M283X has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-M283X. The lamp power of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-M283X range from 170W to 420W, and the average lamp power is 250W.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

Most similar spec data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the NP-M283X have between one and three USB 2.0 ports, including the NP-M283X which has one USB 2.0 port.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

The average matrix size of multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-M283X is 0.61", and the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.76". The NEC NP-M283X has a quite small matrix size (only 0.55 inches) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.
