The NP-M282 has an average running cost of £101 over 1 year based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 161 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

NEC released the NP-M282 in February 2014.


Video

Supports Full HD

The NP-M282 supports full HD. Most of the other data projectors of this type and age do not support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support full HD currently available including the W1500, the MH680 (£607.98), or the W1300 (£773.95) all from Benq which all of have better reviews.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NP-M282 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Benq W1500 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

XGA (1024x768) Resolution

The highest resolution of the NP-M282 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

Average Projector Brightness

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the 1430Wi (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the 1975W (£1,546.99) (5,000 ANSI lumens) both from Epson.
