4 Reasons Against

Poor Product Quality

One person who bought it thought it was not good quality. It Reviews.com said “Good (not great) audio quality” but even so they scored the NEC NP-M311W 80 out of 100.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-M311W do not support full HD. The NP-M311W is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years, the NP-M311W does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson BrightLink 436Wi[plb_1875520_price] which also has a higher rating.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-M311W

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when NEC released the NP-M311W.

Average Noise Level

The NP-M311W has a relatively average noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 35dB noise level projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the NP-VE281X[pl_1495517_price], or the VE281[pl_1473677_price] both from NEC.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the Infocus IN5132[plb_1518430_price] (35dB).

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the NEC NP-M311W has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years.

If this 3000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the VPL-EX246[pl_1564841_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-EX276[pl_1564842_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Sony.
