10 Reasons For

Good Brand

NEC is one of the superior projector brands according to average owner and expert review score data that we have collected for all multimedia projectors.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-PA550 which do not support full HD, the NP-PA550 supports full HD.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NP-PA550 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the NP-PA550 also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesss of data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the NP-PA550 range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 5,500 ANSI lumens, the NEC NP-PA550 has one of the brighter projector brightnesss amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NP-PA550 supports a maximum resolution of 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 projectors of this spec and age. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This projector also 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).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution amongst all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the NP-PA550.

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

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the NEC NP-PA550 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the NP-PA550 the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Quite Big Matrix Size

The average matrix size of projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-PA550 is 0.65". With a matrix size of 0.75 inches, the NEC NP-PA550 has one of the bigger matrix sizes amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

This projector has a maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is typical of many similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

Across all the projectors of this type and age the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.2W to 460W. At only 0.2 Watts, the NP-PA550 has a very low power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-PA550.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Most multimedia projectors of this type and age do not support 3D. The NEC NP-PA550 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support 3D including the NEC U310W which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other projectors of this spec and age, the NP-PA550 does not support wi-Fi.

Alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to consider include the Epson PowerLite 1761W, or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro which is also higher rated.
