11 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The average running cost of the UM280 is only £79 over 1 year based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the cheaper to run comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years.

NEC Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average NEC 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings compared to other brands as do all data projectors produced by NEC.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC UM280 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years.

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Epson EB-1935[plb_1806951_price], or the Hitachi CPWX4022WN[plb_1875061_price].

It is worth considering other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Sony VPL-SX630[plb_2576926_price].
