5 Reasons For

Good Brand

Projectors produced by NEC generally have good reviews.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NEC U300X supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the U300X which do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC U300X has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the U300X.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the NEC U300X is 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 projector). In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the U300X graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The NEC U300X does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The NEC U300X does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the U300X also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider include the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the U300X have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,500h and 10,000h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 3,000 hours, the NEC U300X has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

The quietest noise level in economy mode of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the U300X is 26dB and the loudest is 37dB. With a noise level in economy mode of 32 decibels, the NEC U300X has a quite loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

The smallest matrix size of data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 0.45", the biggest is 55", and the average matrix size is 1.7". With a matrix size of only 0.55 inches, the NEC U300X has one of the smaller matrix sizes amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

5 Other reasons to consider the NEC U300X

OK Running Costs

Based on average usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the U300X will cost £120 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 86 projectors of a similar age and type.

Released Over Four Years Ago

This NEC projector has been on the market for over four years.

Average Noise Level

At 36 decibels, the NEC U300X has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the U300X.

Other 36dB noise level projectors currently available which you might want to consider include the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which has better reviews.

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

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
