Reviews

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

On average NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings compared to other brands as do all data projectors built by NEC. 100% of those that bought a NEC multimedia projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Energy

Running Costs Are OK

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the NP-M332 will cost £126 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 161 data projectors that came out more than two years ago.


Other

Released Over Three Years Ago

This multimedia projector has been on the market since February 2014.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC NP-M332 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as this data projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Epson EB-W28 (£434.99) which is cheaper; or the MH680 (£461.47), and the GP10 (£472) both from Benq and both of which have better reviews are also worth considering.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The NP-M332 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support full HD.

There are a number of other projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider including the MH680 (£461.47), or the W1070 (£499) both from Benq.

3D-Ready

The NP-M332 is 3D-ready, as are most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this multimedia projector.

Projector

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the NEC NP-M332 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Epson 965H (£350.04) (3,500 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

Lamps

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp

The NEC NP-M332 has one of the shorter service life of lamps (only 3,500 hours) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Performance

Quite Loud Noise Level

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years the noise levels range from 28dB to 49dB, and the average noise level is 36dB. At 38 decibels, the NEC NP-M332 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to this projector.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the EB-X18 (£379.98) (37dB and cheaper), or the EB-X03 (£429.99) (37dB and cheaper) both from Epson.
