18 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This NEC projector received an expert rating of 70 out of 100 from PC Mag.

Good Product Quality

Some customers mentioned in their reviews that it was good quality. Expert website Pcmag.com gave this projector a rating of 70 out of 100 and said in their review of this projector “It showed good data-image quality”. Pcmag.com also wrote “A WXGA projector meant for use in up to midsize rooms, has good brightness and data-image quality, loud audio”. Pc Mag said last year “Good data-image quality in our tests” in their review and scored it 70 out of 100.

Good Brand

Projectors produced by NEC are some of the better projectors according to average reviews from experts and owners.

Acceptable Noise Level

One NEC NP-M323W owner considered that the product was noisy. Pcmag.com scored it 70 out of 100 and said on expert website PC Mag “Businesses, is bright enough and has loud enough audio to be usable in a small to midsize room”.

Good Sound Quality

One NEC NP-M323W owner said in their reviews that the NEC NP-M323W had good sound quality.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NP-M323W supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-M323W do not support 3D image projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Acer K137i (£373.92), or the NEC P502HL which has better reviews.

Supports Full HD Projection

The NEC NP-M323W supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the NP-M323W which do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support Full HD projection and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer K137i (£373.92), and the NEC P502HL is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NP-M323W has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the NP-M323W also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the PPX4150 (£199.00), and the PPX4350 (£259.00) both from Philips or the Sagemcom PicoPix PPX4935 is also worth considering.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The NP-M323W 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 multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). Projectors of a comparable age and spec to the NP-M323W graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 4096 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the NP-M323W has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the NP-M323W. Battery powered projectors that have been available for a similar time to the NP-M323W have projector brightness of between 50 ANSI lumens and 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 1,200 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The NP-M323W has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of WVGA (854x480).

This projector's resolution (WXGA (1280x800)) is actually the best resolution amongst all projectors that have been available for more than a year.

The worst resolution amongst similar types of projector is WVGA (854x480).

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Analog Resolution

This projector has a maximum analog resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is the most frequently found maximum analog resolution on projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated power of projectors that are a similar age to the NP-M323W range from 1W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 6.8W. With an RMS rated power of 20 Watts, the NP-M323W's RMS rated power is one of the highest amongst projectors that are a similar age to the NP-M323W.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The NEC NP-M323W is a two HDMI port projector. Most of the other battery powered projectors that were released more than a year ago only have one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Optical Zoom

The smallest optical zoom of projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-M323W is 1x and the biggest is 2x. The NP-M323W has a fairly big optical zoom (1.7 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-M323W.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

Across all the data projectors of a similar age and spec to the NP-M323W the power consumption during PowerSave range from 0.2W to 410W. The NP-M323W has a fairly low power consumption during PowerSave (only 0.2 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-M323W.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The average noise level in economy mode of similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-M323W is 32dB, and the noise levels in economy mode range from 24dB to 40dB. The NP-M323W has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode (only 27 decibels) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

At only 186 Watts, the NP-M323W has a fairly low power consumption in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the NP-M323W. The power consumption in economy mode of projectors that were released one year ago range from 38W to 890W, and the average power consumption in economy mode is 330W.

8 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on data projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other battery powered projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-M323W, the NP-M323W does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Sagemcom PicoPix PPX4935, the Aiptek PocketCinema A100W (£279.00), or the XSories XPWN3A021 (£311.99) which also has a higher rating.

Very Low Horizontal Resolution

At only 540 lines, the NP-M323W has a fairly low horizontal resolution compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the NP-M323W. The average horizontal resolution of similar spec projectors that were released one year ago is 790 lines, and the horizontal resolutions range from 540 lines to 1,100 lines.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

When compared to other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the NP-M323W that we have assessed, the NP-M323W's service life of lamp in economic mode of only 800 hours is one of the shortest. The average service life of lamp in economic mode of projectors that were launched around the same time as the NP-M323W is 9,500h, and the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 800h to 75,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power in Economic Mode

Across all the projectors of this age and spec the lamp powers in economic mode range from 130W to 6,000W. With a lamp power in economic mode of only 135 Watts, the NP-M323W has one of the dimmer lamp powers in economic mode amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

Projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-M323W have lamp service lives of between 3,500h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 24,000h. The NP-M323W has one of the shorter lamp service lives (only 3,500 hours) amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Heavy

With a weight of 3.5 kilograms, the NP-M323W is one of the heavier battery powered projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-M323W amongst battery powered projectors of this age.
