NEC Projectors Have Good Reviews

Energy

OK Running Costs

The NP-M402X is typical compared to the other 161 projectors of this age and type that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the NP-M402X is £126.


Other

Released Over Three Years Ago

This multimedia projector was released in February 2014.


Video

Supports Full HD

The NP-M402X supports full HD, unlike most of the other projectors of this age and type which do not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think because of its better review score, the Epson Home Cinema 600 is also worth considering.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NP-M402X has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the NEC NP-M322X which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Projector

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesses of similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to this projector range from 300 ANSI lumens to 20,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. The NEC NP-M402X has one of the brighter projector brightnesses (4,000 ANSI lumens) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Epson 1980WU (£1,346.73) (4,400 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Lamps

Quite Big Bulb Power

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of only 3,500 hours, the NP-M402X has one of the shorter service life of lamps amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The shortest service life of lamp of projectors of this age and type is 500h and the longest is 30,000h.

Performance

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The NP-M402X has a fairly loud noise level (38 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as this multimedia projector. The quietest noise level of data projectors of a similar age and spec to this data projector is 28dB and the loudest is 49dB.

There are a number of alternative 38dB noise level projectors currently available that you might want to look at including the NP-M282, or the M322X both from NEC which and both of have better reviews.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the NEC NP-M332 (£442.15) (38dB).
