7 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The U250X is one of the cheaper to run 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the U250X is only £100.

NEC Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average multimedia projectors produced by NEC are rated 83%, which is in the top 37% of all data projector brands that we have looked at.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NEC U250X supports 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the U250X do not support 3D image projection.

Other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might want to consider include the Optoma W505[plb_2411917_price], or the Vivitek D5110W-WNL[plb_2358468_price] which is cheaper.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC U250X has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the U250X.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Optoma W505[plb_2411917_price], or the Panasonic PT-EX510[plb_2584403_price] which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Canon WX-520[plb_2199325_price].

1400 X 1050 (SXGA+) Graphics Resolution

The NEC U250X supports a maximum resolution of 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+). That's over four times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the U250X. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Projectors that have been around for around the same time as the U250X graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of data projectors of this age and type range from 28dB to 42dB. The NEC U250X has a quite quiet noise level (only 33 decibels) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the U250X.

Other multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Sony VPLFH31[plb_1475953_price] (37dB).

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors of a comparable age and type to it.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years do not support Full HD projection. The NEC U250X is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at include the Vivitek D5110W-WNL[plb_2358468_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most similar spec data projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support WiFi connectivity. The NEC U250X is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the NEC U250X has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The dimmest projector brightness of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 110 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 10,000 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Vivitek D5110W-WNL[plb_2358468_price] (5,000 ANSI lumens), or the Optoma W505[plb_2411917_price] (5,200 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.

Very Short Lamp Service Life

2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the U250X have lamp service lives of between 200h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 5,200h. With a lamp service life of only 2,500 hours, the NEC U250X has one of the shorter lamp service lives amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

The NEC U250X has a fairly small matrix size (only 0.55 inches) compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago. The smallest matrix size of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the U250X is 0.45" and the biggest is 55".
