9 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

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

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NP-M403X supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the NP-M403X also 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 Epson Home Cinema 600[plb_3077179_price] which has better reviews.

Supports Full HD Projection

Like most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the NP-M403X, the NP-M403X supports Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Epson Home Cinema 600[plb_3077179_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC NP-M403X has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the NP-M403X.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-M403X is 3,700 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens. At 4,000 ANSI lumens, the NP-M403X has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price].

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens), the PT-VX420[pl_3723242_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens), or the PT-DW830E[pl_3897896_price] (8,500 ANSI lumens) all from Panasonic.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the NP-M403X is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors that have been available for more than a year. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. This NEC data projector also 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).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all projectors of a similar spec and age to the NP-M403X.

The worst supported resolution across similar types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

Projectors that came out more than a year ago have RMS rated power of between 2W and 26W. With an RMS rated power of 20 Watts, the NEC NP-M403X has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the NP-M403X.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

At only 0.2 Watts, the NP-M403X has a fairly low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the NP-M403X. Across all the data projectors that are a similar age to the NP-M403X the power consumption during PowerSave range from 0.18W to 290W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 130W.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago do not support WiFi connectivity. The NEC NP-M403X is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year is 1,500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 6,200h. The NEC NP-M403X has a quite short lamp service life (only 3,500 hours) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago.

4 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-M403X

Released Over a Year Ago

This data projector has been on the market for over a year.

Running Costs Are OK

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the NP-M403X is £127, which is typical compared to the other 82 projectors of a comparable age and type.

Average Noise Level

The NP-M403X has a relatively typical noise level (36 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the NP-M403X.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the CP-CX301WN[pl_3419087_price] (36dB), or the CP -AW3005[pl_3406373_price] (36dB) both from Hitachi.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The NP-M403X has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.
