8 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Projector Reviews

Data projectors produced by NEC generally have good ratings compared to other brands.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the M403X which do not support full HD, the NEC M403X supports full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other data projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD7830HDL[plb_3244300_price], or the Optoma GT5000[plb_3141494_price].

Supports 3D

The NEC M403X supports 3D. Most of the other data projectors of this type and age also support 3D.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma GT5000[plb_3141494_price] is also worth considering.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D and we think the Optoma X320UST[plb_3054691_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC M403X has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M403X.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD7830HDL[plb_3244300_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Panasonic PT-VW530[plb_3390574_price], or the Optoma X320UST[plb_3054691_price] is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NEC M403X is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this NEC multimedia projector). This multimedia 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+), 1152 x 870, 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1280 x 960, 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 and 1600 x 900 and 1680 x 1050 (W. Across all data projectors that are a similar age to the M403X the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

When compared to other data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the M403X that we have checked the RMS rated power of, the NEC M403X's RMS rated power of 20 Watts is one of the highest. The average RMS rated power of data projectors that are a similar age to the M403X is 6.9W, and the RMS rated powers range from 1.5W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Very High Vertical Synchronization (max)

When compared to other projectors of this type and age that we have assessed, the NEC M403X's vertical synchronization (max) of 120 kilohertz is one of the highest. The vertical synchronization (max)s of data projectors that are a comparable age to the M403X range from 0.12kHz to 120kHz.

Chart Edit

Quite High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

At 100 kilohertz, the NEC M403X has a quite high horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the M403X. Projectors of this age and spec have horizontal synchronization (max)s of between 72kHz and 110kHz, and the average horizontal synchronization (max) is 92kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

With a lamp power (economic mode) of only 162 Watts, the NEC M403X has one of the dimmer lamp power (economic mode)s amongst projectors of this age. Similar spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the M403X have lamp power (economic mode)s of between 61W and 10,000W, and the average lamp power (economic mode) is 2,000W.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio (L,R) in

The NEC M403X is a one audio (L,R) in multimedia projector. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the M403X have between one and three audio (L,R) ins.
