6 Reasons For

Good Brand

NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all data projectors NEC is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the M332, the NEC M332 has a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider include the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] which has better reviews.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NEC M332 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this NEC projector). In addition, this data projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1280 x 768, 1280 x 960, 1600 x 900, 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The worst resolution of all multimedia projectors of this type and age is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

The average RMS rated power of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the M332 is 8.9W, and the RMS rated powers range from 1W to 20W. At 20 Watts, the NEC M332 has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the M332.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The NEC M332 has a fairly long service life of lamp (economic mode) (8,000 hours) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the M332. The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of data projectors of this age and type is 6,700h, and the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 3,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Bulb Power

At 270 Watts, the NEC M332 has a fairly big bulb power compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the M332. 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago have bulb powers of between 15W and 840W.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other data projectors of this spec and age, the NEC M332 does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the M332 do not support full HD. The NEC M332 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC M332 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the M332 also do not support wi-Fi.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

With a lamp power (economic mode) of only 162 Watts, the NEC M332 has one of the dimmer lamp power (economic mode)s amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average lamp power (economic mode) of data projectors of a comparable age and type to the M332 is 2,400W.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The average noise level of projectors of a similar spec and age to the M332 is 35dB, and the noise levels range from 27dB to 49dB. At 39 decibels, the NEC M332 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the Panasonic PT-DZ870[plb_1968831_price] (40dB).

Fairly Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The average noise level (economic mode) of multimedia projectors of this type and age is 30dB. At 33 decibels, the NEC M332 has a fairly loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

4 Other reasons to consider the NEC M332

Average Running Costs

Average Projector Brightness

The NEC M332 has a pretty standard projector brightness (3,300 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the M332.

Alternative 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available which you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the BrightLink 595WI+[pl_2175966_price], or the PowerLite 585W[pl_2175974_price] both from Epson.

NEC's NP-M332XS 3D-capable short-throw projector is bright enough for a small to midsize room, and you can place it close to the screen and still get a nice big image...

Bright
Short-throw lens for a big image from close to the screen
Nearly rainbow-free data images
Although 3D works with sources like Blu-ray players, using it is awkward
