10 Reasons For

Good Brand

Projectors built by NEC are some of the better projectors according to average user and expert reviews.

Price Drop of £458.60

The price of the PA522 dropped by £458.60 in the last couple of weeks.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NEC PA522 supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PA522 do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection and we think cheaper data projectors such as the NEC PA572[plb_2406093_price] is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD Projection

The NEC PA522 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the PA522 do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the NEC PA572[plb_2406093_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC PA522 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Panasonic PT-EX800[plb_2130355_price], and the NEC PA572[plb_2406093_price] is also worth considering.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Panasonic PT-EW730[plb_2130354_price] is also worth considering.

4096 X 2160 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the NEC PA522 is 4096 x 2160. That's over four times the resolution of a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PA522. This multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 2048 x 1080, 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and 2560 x 1600 (WQXGA) and 640 x 480 (VGA).

This data projector's resolution (4096 x 2160) is in fact the best supported resolution across all comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

The worst supported resolution across similar types of data projector is 640 x 400.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The NEC PA522 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution amongst all multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PA522.

The worst resolution amongst similar types of projector is XGA (1024x768).

Fairly Big Matrix Size

At 0.76 inches, the NEC PA522 has a quite big matrix size compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PA522. Across all the 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the PA522 the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.79", and the average matrix size is 0.7".

Chart Edit

Three HDMI Ports

The NEC PA522 is a three HDMI port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The NEC PA522 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the PA522 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 4,000 hours, the NEC PA522 has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode amongst data projectors of this age. The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PA522 is 2,500h and the longest is 6,000h.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The NEC PA522 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

The noise levels of projectors of this spec and age range from 29dB to 48dB, and the average noise level is 37dB. At 39 decibels, the NEC PA522 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PA522.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 39dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think the NEC PA572[plb_2406093_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Panasonic PT-EW730[plb_2130354_price] (37dB), or the Epson EB-G6050W[plb_1892938_price] (37dB).
