+9 More reasons for
Very Bright Projector Brightness
Across all the battery powered projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P502HL the projector brightness range from 50 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 1,200 ANSI lumens. When compared to other battery powered projectors that were released one year ago, the projector brightness of the NEC P502HL of 5,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.
1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution
The NEC P502HL has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). The resolution of all multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the P502HL ranges from nHD (640x360) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the NEC P502HL 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 projectors that were launched around the same time as the P502HL. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this NEC projector. This data projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The worst resolution of all projectors that were released around the same time as the P502HL is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 4096 x 2160.
1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Analog Resolution
This projector has a maximum analog resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is the most commonly found maximum analog resolution on comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as it.
Three USB 2.0 Ports
Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the P502HL only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, however the NEC P502HL has three USB 2.0 ports.
Fairly High RMS Rated Power
With an RMS rated power of 20 Watts, the NEC P502HL has one of the higher RMS rated power amongst projectors of this age. Comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the P502HL have RMS rated power of between 1W and 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 6.8W.
Two HDMI Ports
The NEC P502HL has more HDMI ports than most of the multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the P502HL. This multimedia projector is a two HDMI port projector compared to most of the multimedia projectors of this spec and age which only have one HDMI port.
Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave
With a power consumption during PowerSave of only 0.5 Watts, the NEC P502HL has a quite low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the P502HL. Across all the comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the P502HL the power consumption during PowerSave range from 0.2W to 410W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 180W.
9 Reasons Against
Only 100V AC Input Voltage
This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
We think this data projector looks expensive compared to other multimedia projectors of this type and age. We checked 11 multimedia projectors of this type and age and they range in price from £199 to £3,219.
Quite Small Offset
With an offset of only 62 percent, the NEC P502HL has one of the smaller offsets amongst projectors of this age. The average offset of similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P502HL is 98%, and the offsets range from 10% to 130%.
Very Low Number of Colours
The NEC P502HL has one of the lower numbers of colours (only 16.7 million) amongst projectors of this age. The numbers of colours of multimedia projectors of this age and spec range from 1M to 1,100M.
+6 More reasons against
Very Loud Noise Level
At 39 decibels, the NEC P502HL has a very loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The average noise level of battery powered projectors that have been around for a similar time to the P502HL is 31dB.
When compared to other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the P502HL that we have checked the weight of, the NEC P502HL's weight of 8.8 kilograms is one of the heaviest. The lightest battery powered projector that is a comparable age to the P502HL is 83g heavy and the heaviest is 8.8kg.
The average width of projectors that have been available for a similar time to the P502HL is 170mm, and the widths range from 68mm to 470mm. When compared to other battery powered projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the P502HL that we have assessed, the NEC P502HL's width of 469 millimeters is one of the widest.
Quite Short Lamp Service Life
With a lamp service life of only 20,000 hours, the NEC P502HL has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the P502HL. The shortest lamp service life of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P502HL is 3,500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 24,000h.
High Running Costs
The P502HL is one of the less economic to run multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the P502HL is £151.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the NEC P502HLuses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.75 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 20 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
