12 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The average 1 year running cost of the M302 is only £75 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the most economic to run 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

NEC Projectors Have Good Reviews

10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors produced by NEC have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all data projectors (not just 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that NEC also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago which do not support 3D, the NEC M302 supports 3D.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC M302 does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the M302 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

2 Other reasons to consider the NEC M302

Released Over Three Years Ago

This projector has been on the market for over three years.

Average Projector Brightness

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

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer P1500[plb_1569835_price].

If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the NEC NP-M322X[plb_2324544_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
