12 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

NEC has good average reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire projector range.

Supports Full HD Projection

The NP-M322 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the NP-M322 do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson 1975W.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NP-M322 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the NP-M322 also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the NEC NP-M282 which has better reviews.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The NP-M322 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). In addition, this NEC projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all data projectors of a comparable age and type to the NP-M322.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of multimedia projector.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated power of projectors of this age and spec range from 1W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 8.9W. With an RMS rated power of 20 Watts, the NP-M322 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and two HDMI ports, including the NP-M322 which has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Optical Zoom

Across all the similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years the optical zooms range from 1.1x to 2.1x, and the average optical zoom is 1.4x. The NP-M322 has one of the bigger optical zooms (1.7 times zoom factor) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

This projector has a maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At 8,000 hours, the NEC NP-M322 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago. The average service life of lamp in economic mode of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the NP-M322 is 7,400h, and the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 1,000h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the NP-M322 the lamp power range from 15W to 840W. At 282 Watts, the NP-M322 has a fairly big lamp power compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

The NP-M322 has one of the lower power consumption in economy mode (only 202 Watts) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. The lowest power consumption in economy mode of multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 72W, the highest is 420W, and the average power consumption in economy mode is 250W.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The NP-M322 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the NP-M322 also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The NP-M322 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq W1500, or the Epson PowerLite 1222 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Short Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of only 3,500 hours, the NEC NP-M322 has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The shortest lamp service life of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 500h and the longest is 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The noise levels of similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago range from 28dB to 49dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. The NEC NP-M322 has one of the louder noise levels (38 decibels) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 38dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including the NEC NP-M282 which has better reviews.

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The NEC NP-M322 is a one USB 2.0 port multimedia projector. Most of the other projectors of this age and type have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

The noise levels in economy mode of projectors of a comparable age and type to the NP-M322 range from 26dB to 40dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB. The NP-M322 has one of the louder noise levels in economy mode (31 decibels) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The NEC NP-M322 is a one audio in port projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-M322 have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-M322

Running Costs Are Average

The NP-M322 is typical compared to the other 136 data projectors of a similar age and type that we have analysed for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the NP-M322 will cost £109 over 1 year to run.

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when NEC released the NP-M322.

Average Projector Brightness

The NP-M322 has a pretty average projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the NP-M322.

We compared this data projector to all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the Epson PowerLite 580 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Epson 1430Wi (£1,680.81) (3,300 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
