Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to this projector, the NEC M332 does not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the Acer X1311, the Optoma ML750, or the Epson Home Cinema 600 are also worth considering.

With a projector brightness of 3,300 ANSI lumens, the NEC M332 has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.
