7 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked the reviews from experts and users of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average projectors from NEC have good ratings from experts and owners.

Supports Full HD

The NP-PA521U-13ZL supports full HD. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-PA521U-13ZL do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age, the NP-PA521U-13ZL has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Epson PowerLite W16SK, and the Ricoh PJ WX4141N which has better reviews is also worth considering.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the NP-PA521U-13ZL is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution amongst all projectors of this type and age.

Amongst similar types of data projector the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NP-PA521U-13ZL is 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). In addition, this projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL.

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

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

At only 0.11 Watts, the NP-PA521U-13ZL has a fairly low power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. Projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL have power consumption (PowerSave)s of between 0.11W and 730W.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the NP-PA521U-13ZL, the NEC NP-PA521U-13ZL does not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support 3D including the Epson Z8455WUNL which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most data projectors of this spec and age do not support wi-Fi. The NP-PA521U-13ZL is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

Most data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the NP-PA521U-13ZL have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, including the NP-PA521U-13ZL which has one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

Most projectors of this age and type have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys, including the NP-PA521U-13ZL which has one USB 2.0 ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Only One Lamps Quantity

The NP-PA521U-13ZL is a one lamps quantity projector. Most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-PA521U-13ZL have one lamps quantity.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The quietest noise level (economic mode) of multimedia projectors of this type and age is 28dB and the loudest is 35dB. At 33 decibels, the NP-PA521U-13ZL has a fairly loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

4 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-PA521U-13ZL

Released Over Two Years Ago

This NEC data projector was released over two years ago.

Running Costs Are Average

The NP-PA521U-13ZL has an average 1 year running cost of £196 based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 54 projectors of this age and type.

Average Noise Level

At 39 decibels, the NP-PA521U-13ZL has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL.

If you would consider a multimedia projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the NEC PA572 (£2,393.78) (39dB).
