11 Reasons For

Very Low Running Costs

The average running cost of the M323W is only £75 over 1 year based on average energy prices, which makes it one of the most economic to run projectors of this spec and age.

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

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

Supports 3D

The NEC M323W supports 3D, unlike most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the M323W which do not support 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including the MH741[pl_3116082_price], or the MH680[pl_1998672_price] both from Benq which has better reviews; or the NEC M333XS[plb_3113388_price] which is cheaper.

Supports Full HD

The NEC M323W supports full HD. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than a year do not support full HD.

Other multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to consider include the Hitachi CP-WX3041WN[plb_3792952_price] which is cheaper; or the MH741[pl_3116082_price], or the MH680[pl_1998672_price] both from Benq which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC M323W has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the M323W.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider including the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price], or the Epson PowerLite 955W[plb_2181186_price] which has better reviews.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Panasonic PT-VX420[plb_3723242_price] is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NEC M323W 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 comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the M323W. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this NEC data projector. In addition, this data projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 800 x 600 (SVGA), 832 x 624, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1152 x 870, 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1376 x 768, 1440 x 1050, 1440 x 900, 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1600 x 900 and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+). Across all similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the M323W the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 20 Watts, the NEC M323W has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year.
