13 Reasons For

One Industry Award

This multimedia projector received a "Hot Product" award from Projectorreviews.com.

Running Costs Are Low

Based on average usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the M363W will cost only £82 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the cheaper to run data projectors of this age and spec.

NEC Has Good Data Projector Reviews

NEC is one of the superior data projector brands according to average reviews from experts and users, and NEC also has good reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Easy to Use

One NEC M363W reviewer who reviewed the NEC M363W concluded that it was easy to setup. Projectorreviews.com wrote last year “Easy to setup”.

Good Picture Quality

One person mentioned in their reviews that it had a sharp image. Last year Projectorreviews.com said “Good sharpness with any normally used resolution” in their NEC M363W review.

Good Size

One NEC M363W owner who bought it concluded that it was compact. Projectorreviews.com wrote last year “Presentation flexibility in a compact package that should please business” .

Supports Full HD

The NEC M363W supports full HD, unlike most of the other projectors of this type and age which do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including the NEC M323W[plb_3058192_price], the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price], or the Acer K335[plb_1598465_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC M363W has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the M363W.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite 955W[plb_2181186_price], the Panasonic PT-VX420[plb_3723242_price], and the Hitachi CPX4041WN[plb_3393438_price] is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NEC M363W supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of this spec and age. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. This NEC data projector also 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+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+). 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the M363W supported graphics resolutionss range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of similar spec projectors that have been available for more than a year is 3,600 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 3,600 ANSI lumens, the NEC M363W has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the M363W.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the CPWX3541WN[pl_3869046_price] (3,700 ANSI lumens), or the CPX4041WN[pl_3393438_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens) both from Hitachi or the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

8 Reasons Against

Inferior Remote Control

One customer wrote in their reviews that the product did not have a good remote control. Projectorreviews.com said in their NEC M363W review “Remote can be difficult to operate in a dark room, since it has no backlight or glowinthedark buttons” .

Recent Price Increase of £170.66

In the last few weeks the price of the M363W has increased by £170.66.

Does Not Support 3D

The NEC M363W does not support 3D. Most of the other projectors that were released more than a year ago also do not support 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the M303WS[pl_3113387_price], or the M323W[pl_3058192_price] both from NEC or the Benq MW855UST[plb_3333837_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most similar spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the M363W do not support wi-Fi. The NEC M363W is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price] which also has a higher rating.

Only 1280 X 1024 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The biggest maximum digital resolution of the NEC M363W is 1280 x 1024 pixels. That's 37% less maximum digital resolution than the most common maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

This data projector's maximum digital resolution (1280 x 1024 pixels) is in fact the worst maximum digital resolution amongst all projectors that have been available for a similar time to the M363W.

A 1920 x 1200 pixels maximum digital resolution is the best maximum digital resolution amongst comparable types of data projector.
