9 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Projectors manufactured by NEC are some of the better projectors according to average reviews from experts and users.

Supports Wi-Fi

The NP-P501X supports wi-Fi, unlike most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-P501X which do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC NP-P501X has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesss of comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-P501X range from 500 ANSI lumens to 13,000 ANSI lumens. At 5,000 ANSI lumens, the NP-P501X has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the NEC P501X (£1,287.25) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NP-P501X supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). In addition, this data projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution across all 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Across comparable types of projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The NP-P501X has more HDMI ports quantitys than most of the 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-P501X. Most of the projectors that are a similar age to the NP-P501X only have one HDMI ports quantity, however this data projector has two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Bulb Power

The smallest bulb power of data projectors of this type and age is 180W, the biggest is 380W, and the average bulb power is 230W. The NP-P501X has a fairly big bulb power (270 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the NP-P501X.

Chart Edit

Supports Four Image Formats Supporteds

The NP-P501X has a greater number of supported image formats than most similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it. This multimedia projector supports a JPG image formats supported, which is the most frequently supported image formats supported supported by comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than two years. The image formats supporteds "BMP", "GIF" and "PNG" are also supported by this projector.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Lamp Power (economic Mode)

Across all the data projectors of this type and age the lamp power (economic mode)s range from 1W to 160W. With a lamp power (economic mode) of 160 Watts, the NEC NP-P501X's lamp power (economic mode) is one of the brightest amongst projectors of this age and type.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the NP-P501X, the NP-P501X does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Most projectors of a similar age and type to the NP-P501X do not support 3D. The NP-P501X is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the NEC L51W which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

High Running Costs

The NP-P501X has an average running cost of £189 over 1 year based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is in the most expensive 10% of all 32 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Heavy

Comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the NP-P501X have weights of between 3.4g and 28kg, and the average weight is 4kg. With a weight of 4.1 kilograms, the NP-P501X is fairly heavy compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-P501X

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector was released.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the NP-P501X has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-P501X.

There are a number of alternative 37dB noise level projectors currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-P451 (£1,403.59).
