That's 8% more resolution than the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) (which is also supported by this NEC projector). This projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 960, 1600 x 900, 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The best resolution of all data projectors that were released around the same time as the M311 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found projector native resolution on comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The NEC M311 has more USB 2.0 ports quantitys than most of the multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the M311. Most of the projectors that were launched around the same time as the M311 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys, however this data projector has three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the M311 range from 230h to 20,000h. At 8,000 hours, the NEC M311 has a quite long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

Data projectors of a similar age and type to the M311 have service life of lamps of between 1,500h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,400h. The NEC M311 has one of the longer service life of lamps (5,000 hours) amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago the noise levels range from 26dB to 45dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. With a noise level of only 28 decibels, the NEC M311 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the NEC VE281[plb_1473677_price] (35dB).

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Most multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the M311 do not support 3D. The NEC M311 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The NEC M311 does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other projectors of this spec and age, the NEC M311 does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

When compared to other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago that we have checked, the NEC M311's projector brightness of only 2,325 ANSI lumens is one of the dimmest. The projector brightnesss of projectors of this type and age range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price] (2,600 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
