15 Reasons For

One Industry Award

The reviewer at one expert review site thought that this NEC data projector was good. Projectorreviews.com gave this data projector a "Hot Product" award.

Good Expert Reviews

This data projector received a rating of 80 out of 100 from expert review website IT Reviews.com.

Good Brand

On average NEC 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews compared to other brands as do all projectors manufactured by NEC.

Reasonably Priced

One NEC NP-UM330 owner wrote in their reviews that the product was good value for money. Projectorreviews.com said “The NP-UM330W is an exceptionally sharp ultra-short throw projector that offers 3300 lumens and a better than most value proposition” in their review of the NEC NP-UM330.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The NP-UM330 supports WiFi connectivity, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the NP-UM330 which do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Epson BrightLink 436Wi which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson EB-425W (£828.73).

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NP-UM330 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the NP-UM330.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This data projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1280 x 768 (WXGA)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+)|1440 x 900 (WXGA+)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is the most frequently supported graphics resolution on comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many projectors of a comparable age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-UM330 only have one HDMI port, however the NP-UM330 has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Lamp Power in Economic Mode

With a lamp power in economic mode of 6,000 Watts, the NEC NP-UM330 has one of the brightest lamp powers in economic mode amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the NP-UM330 the lamp powers in economic mode range from 110W to 6,000W.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

At 16 Watts, the NEC NP-UM330 has a very high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago. 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the NP-UM330 have RMS rated power of between 0.5W and 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Lamp Power

The average lamp power of similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 240W, and the lamp power range from 140W to 400W. The NP-UM330 has one of the bigger lamp power (265 Watts) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of only 28 decibels, the NEC NP-UM330 has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the NP-UM330. Across all the projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-UM330 the noise levels in economy mode range from 26dB to 35dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

The NEC NP-UM330 has a quite low power consumption during PowerSave (only 0.2 Watts) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-UM330. Across all the multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the NP-UM330 the power consumption during PowerSave range from 0.1W to 330W.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the NP-UM330, the NP-UM330 does not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Infocus IN3118 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The NEC NP-UM330 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-UM330 also do not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at including the Optoma TW610STi.

Running Costs Are High

The NP-UM330 is in the most expensive 4% of all 92 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the NP-UM330 will cost £170 over 1 year to run.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-UM330

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when NEC released the NP-UM330.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the NEC NP-UM330 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the NP-UM330.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the NEC UM330 (£563.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the Infocus IN3118 (3,600 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the NEC NP-UM330 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the NP-UM330.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the NEC VE281 (£444.79) (35dB).
