9 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Projector Reviews

NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews on average and across all projectors NEC is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Supports 3D

The NEC NP-M403X supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the NP-M403X do not support 3D.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support 3D and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson Home Cinema 600[plb_3077179_price] is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD

The NP-M403X supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC NP-M403X has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens, the NEC NP-M403X has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the NP-M403X the projector brightnesss range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price].

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens), the PT-VX420[pl_3723242_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens), or the PT-DW830E[pl_3897896_price] (8,500 ANSI lumens) all from Panasonic.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NP-M403X is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by data projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-M403X. 640 x 480 (VGA) 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).

This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-M403X.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution across similar types of data projector.

Quite High RMS Rated Power

At 20 Watts, the NP-M403X has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-M403X. The RMS rated powers of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the NP-M403X range from 2W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Bulb Power

At 270 Watts, the NEC NP-M403X has a fairly big bulb power compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-M403X. The bulb powers of similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-M403X range from 170W to 420W, and the average bulb power is 240W.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-M403X the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.18W to 290W, and the average power consumption (PowerSave) is 140W. The NP-M403X has one of the lower power consumption (PowerSave)s (only 0.2 Watts) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the NP-M403X, the NP-M403X does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson EB-945H[plb_3077398_price].

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

Across all the data projectors of this age and type the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 6,100h. At only 3,500 hours, the NP-M403X has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-M403X.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the NP-M403X have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys, including the NEC NP-M403X which has one USB 2.0 ports quantity.

4 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-M403X

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this data projector was released.

Running Costs Are OK

The NP-M403X is typical compared to the other 90 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the NP-M403X is £127.

Average Noise Level

At 36 decibels, the NP-M403X has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the NP-M403X.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Canon X310ST[plb_3419097_price] (36dB), or the Hitachi CP-CX301WN[plb_3419087_price] (36dB).
