8 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

Based on average usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the UM301 will cost only £76 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the more economic to run data projectors that have been around for more than a year.

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Projectors made by NEC have an average rating of 83 out of 100, which is in the top 37% of all data projector brands that we have looked at.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 6000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than a year, the NEC UM301 has a built-in speaker.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the NEC UM301 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 720 x 480 data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by multimedia projectors of this spec and age. 720 x 480 is also supported by this projector. In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 960, 1440 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x 1200 (W.

A 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) graphics resolution is actually the best supported resolution amongst all data projectors of this age and spec.

A 720 x 480 graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution amongst similar types of multimedia projector.
