1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NEC L102 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this NEC projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 768, 1280 x 800, 1280 x 960, 1440 x 900, 1440 x 1050, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1366 х 768 and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the L102 the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The NEC L102 does not support 3D. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years also do not support 3D.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support 3D including the Acer X1111[plb_1377014_price], the Benq TH681[plb_2192820_price], or the Panasonic PT-DZ13[plb_2000154_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC L102 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the L102 also do not support wi-Fi.

Alternative data projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to consider include the EB-X18[pl_2017449_price], or the PowerLite 1222[pl_2225031_price] both from Epson or the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesss of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the L102 range from 300 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 1,000 ANSI lumen, the NEC L102 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the L102.

We compared all the other 1,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer K335[plb_1598465_price], and the Infocus IN1146[plb_2100767_price] is also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the W1070+W[pl_3252509_price] (2,200 ANSI lumens), or the W1350[pl_2750779_price] (2,500 ANSI lumens) both from Benq or the Vivitek H1180HD[plb_2341133_price] (2,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
