16 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

Expert review site PC Mag scored this multimedia projector 70 out of 100.

Good Product Quality

Some people who bought the NEC NP-M323W concluded that it was good quality. Expert website Pcmag.com wrote “It showed good data-image quality”. Pcmag.com also wrote “A WXGA projector meant for use in up to midsize rooms, has good brightness and data-image quality, loud audio”. Pc Mag said in their review of this projector on PC Mag two years ago “Good data-image quality in our tests”.

Good Brand

Projectors built by NEC generally have good ratings.

Acceptable Noise Level

One NEC NP-M323W reviewer who reviewed the NEC NP-M323W concluded that it was noisy. Pcmag.com mentioned in their review on PC Mag “Businesses, is bright enough and has loud enough audio to be usable in a small to midsize room”.

Good Sound Quality

One person said that it had good sound quality.

Supports 3D

The NP-M323W supports 3D. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-M323W do not support 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors which support 3D currently available including because of it's better review score, the K137i (£497.97), or the P5515 (£749.97) both from Acer or the NEC P502HL.

Supports Full HD

The NP-M323W supports full HD, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the NP-M323W which do not support full HD.

Other projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to consider include the NEC P502HL, or the Acer K137i (£497.97) which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-M323W, the NP-M323W has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Sagemcom PicoPix PPX4935, and the NEC P502HL which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NP-M323W supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this NEC multimedia projector). This data projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). Across all multimedia projectors of this age and spec the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 4096 x 2160.

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Analog Resolution

This projector has a maximum analog resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is the most commonly found maximum analog resolution on projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

When compared to other battery powered projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-M323W that we have assessed, the NP-M323W's RMS rated power of 20 Watts is one of the highest. The average RMS rated power of similar spec data projectors that were released one year ago is 6.4W, and the RMS rated powers range from 1W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The NP-M323W has more HDMI ports quantitys than most of the data projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-M323W. This projector is a two HDMI ports quantity projector compared to most of the multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-M323W which only have one HDMI ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Optical Zoom

The optical zooms of multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago range from 1x to 2x, and the average optical zoom is 1.3x. The NEC NP-M323W has one of the bigger optical zooms (1.7 times zoom factor) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

At only 0.2 Watts, the NP-M323W has a fairly low power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-M323W. Across all the battery powered projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-M323W the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.2W to 270W, and the average power consumption (PowerSave) is 76W.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The NP-M323W has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s (only 27 decibels) amongst projectors of this age. The quietest noise level (economic mode) of projectors that have been around for more than a year is 27dB and the loudest is 34dB.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (economy Mode)

Across all the multimedia projectors of this age and spec the power consumption (economy mode)s range from 38W to 890W, and the average power consumption (economy mode) is 360W. The NEC NP-M323W has a fairly low power consumption (economy mode) (only 186 Watts) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-M323W.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the NP-M323W, the NP-M323W does not support wi-Fi.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to look at including the NEC P502HL, the Sagemcom PicoPix PPX4935, or the XSories XPWN3A021 (£318.34) which also has a higher rating.

Quite Loud Noise Level

At 33 decibels, the NEC NP-M323W has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the NP-M323W. The noise levels of data projectors of this age and type range from 25dB to 39dB.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Philips PPX4350 (£197.79) (28dB and higher rated), the Acer P5515 (£749.97) (29dB and higher rated), or the Asus P3B (£493.52) (32dB and higher rated).

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of projectors of this spec and age is 800h and the longest is 75,000h. When compared to other projectors of this age and type that we have assessed the service life of lamp (economic mode) of, the NP-M323W's service life of lamp (economic mode) of only 800 hours is one of the shortest.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

At only 135 Watts, the NEC NP-M323W has a fairly dim lamp power (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago. Across all the similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-M323W the lamp power (economic mode)s range from 61W to 10,000W.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

At only 3,500 hours, the NEC NP-M323W has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago. Across all the data projectors of this spec and age the service life of lamps range from 3,000h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 22,000h.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Projectors of this spec and age have weights of between 83g and 8.8kg, and the average weight is 1.4kg. The NP-M323W is one of the heavier multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the NP-M323W (3.5 kilograms) amongst battery powered projectors of this age.
