15 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This NEC projector received a score of 70% from expert review site PC Mag.

Robust

Three NEC NP-UM351W reviewers who reviewed it agreed that it was well made. Expert review site Pcmag.com mentioned “The NEC Display Solutions NP-UM351W ($1,369) is a bright data projector for classroom or business use that offers good brightness, loud sound, solid data- and video-image quality”. Pcmag.com also wrote “The NEC Display Solutions NP-UM361X is a WXGA ultra-short-throw data projector that offers solid data- and video-image quality”. Last year Pc Mag said in their review of the NEC NP-UM351W on PC Mag “Image quality, though solid, is unimpressive”.

Good Product Quality

A few customers who reviewed it thought it was good quality.

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors built by NEC have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that NEC also has good reviews across its entire range.

Good Sound Quality

One NEC NP-UM351W reviewer who purchased it concluded that it had good sound quality.

Acceptable Noise Level

One NEC NP-UM351W owner said in their reviews that it was noisy.

Good Picture Quality

One person who reviewed this projector considered that it had good picture quality.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other projectors of this type and age which do not have a built-in speaker, the NEC NP-UM351W has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The NP-UM351W supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this NEC multimedia projector). This projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the NP-UM351W the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 4096 x 2160.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Analog Resolution

This projector has a maximum analog resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is typical of many projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

The average RMS rated power of projectors of this age and spec is 10W. With an RMS rated power of 20 Watts, the NP-UM351W has one of the higher RMS rated power amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The NP-UM351W has more HDMI ports than most of the projectors of this age and spec. This projector is a two HDMI port data projector compared to most of the similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the NP-UM351W which only have one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,000h and 6,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 4,000h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 6,000 hours, the NEC NP-UM351W's service life of lamp in economic mode is one of the longest amongst similar spec projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

When compared to other data projectors of a similar age and type to the NP-UM351W, the NEC NP-UM351W's lamp service life of 3,800 hours is one of the longest. The shortest lamp service life of multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-UM351W is 1,500h, the longest is 3,800h, and the average lamp service life is 2,700h.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

Similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year have power consumption during PowerSave of between 0.2W and 410W. At only 0.2 Watts, the NP-UM351W has a very low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The NEC NP-UM351W does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that came out more than a year ago also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The NP-UM351W does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the NP-UM351W also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The NEC NP-UM351W does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the NP-UM351W also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of data projectors of this age and spec is 4,500 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 3,500 ANSI lumens to 6,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 3,500 ANSI lumens, the NP-UM351W has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-UM351W.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the PU9220 (£2,557.99) (5,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the PX9210 (6,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Benq.

Quite Small Offset

Data projectors of this spec and age have offsets of between 10% and 130%, and the average offset is 98%. The NP-UM351W has a fairly small offset (only 81 percent) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power in Economic Mode

The lamp powers in economic mode of projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-UM351W range from 130W to 6,000W. The NP-UM351W has one of the dimmer lamp powers in economic mode (only 160 Watts) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

The NP-UM351W is one of the less economic to run projectors of this age and spec that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the NP-UM351W is £167.
