7 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors built by NEC have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that NEC also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports Full HD Projection

The NEC NP-U321H-WK supports Full HD projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-U321H-WK also support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NP-U321H-WK has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the NP-U321H-WK.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson Home Cinema 600 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the NP-U321H-WK is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all similar spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-U321H-WK the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The NP-U321H-WK supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the NP-U321H-WK. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. This data projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 576 (WSVGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the NP-U321H-WK graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors that have been around for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

With a power consumption during PowerSave of only 0.18 Watts, the NP-U321H-WK has a quite low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the NP-U321H-WK. The power consumption during PowerSave of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-U321H-WK range from 0.18W to 290W.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-U321H-WK support 3D image projection, however the NEC NP-U321H-WK does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Epson Home Cinema 600 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The NP-U321H-WK does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the NP-U321H-WK also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson EX7235 which is also higher rated.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the NP-U321H-WK have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 3,500h and 30,000h. The NP-U321H-WK has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode (only 4,000 hours) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

At only 3,000 hours, the NEC NP-U321H-WK has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-U321H-WK. Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the NP-U321H-WK the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 6,200h.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption in Economy Mode

The NP-U321H-WK has a quite high power consumption in economy mode (272 Watts) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than a year ago. The average power consumption in economy mode of multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the NP-U321H-WK is 250W.

4 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-U321H-WK

Released Over a Year Ago

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

Running Costs Are Average

The NP-U321H-WK is typical compared to the other 82 projectors of a comparable age and spec that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the NP-U321H-WK is £126.

Average Projector Brightness

The NEC NP-U321H-WK has a pretty standard projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-U321H-WK.

There are a number of alternative 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to look at including the NEC M322 (£1,067.89) which has better reviews.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the NEC M333XS (£682.80) (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP -AW3005 (3,300 ANSI lumens).

Average Noise Level

The NP-U321H-WK has a pretty typical noise level (34 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 34dB noise level data projectors currently available including the Benq W1350 (£1,059.99) which has better reviews.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the EB-1420Wi (£1,327.57) (35dB), or the EB-1430Wi (35dB) both from Epson.
