This NEC multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The best resolution of all data projectors that have been around for more than a year is 4096 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The NP-UM361X has one of the higher RMS rated power (20 Watts) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-UM361X have RMS rated power of between 1W and 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 10W.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The widths of data projectors of a similar age and spec to the NP-UM361X range from 420mm to 440mm. With a width of only 429 millimeters, the NP-UM361X is quite narrow compared to most of the other projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 5.6 kilograms, the NEC NP-UM361X is one of the lighter 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-UM361X amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the NP-UM361X have weights of between 5.6kg and 8.5kg, and the average weight is 7.1kg.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

The power consumption in economy mode of projectors of this age and spec range from 220W to 340W.
