Energy

Low Running Costs

Reviews

Good Brand

NEC has good average ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other brands. 100% of those that bought a NEC projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Other

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was January 2014 when NEC released the M302.


Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The NEC M302 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as this projector also do not support full HD.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Benq W1300 (£773.95) which is also higher rated.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC M302 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of their better review scores, the Benq W1300 (£773.95), or the Epson EB-X24 (£799.99).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Acer P5307 is also worth considering.

Average Projector Brightness

The NEC M302 has a relatively typical projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to this projector.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think the Optoma X304M (£599.65), and the Epson PowerLite 99W (£597.51) both of which are cheaper; or the Epson PowerLite 955W (£728.76) which has better reviews are also worth considering.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-TW340 (£611.98) (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the NEC M362 (£638.54) (3,600 ANSI lumens and cheaper); or the NEC M352 (£843.34) (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Very Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of comparable spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as this multimedia projector is 36dB, and the noise levels range from 28dB to 49dB. At only 30 decibels, the NEC M302 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to this multimedia projector.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 30dB noise level projectors currently available including the NEC L102 (£621.73) which is cheaper.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the DH1017 (£804) (28dB), or the EH500 (£932.12) (30dB) both from Optoma.
