Other

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was April 2015 when this NEC projector was released.


Energy

OK Running Costs

The NP-U321H-WK has an average 1 year running cost of £126 based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 161 similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.


Video

Supports Full HD

The NP-U321H-WK supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to this multimedia projector do not support full HD.

Other multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to look at include because of its better review score, the Epson Home Cinema 600.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC NP-U321H-WK has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the NEC NP-M322X which has better reviews.

Projector

1080p (1920x1080) Resolution

The highest resolution of the NEC NP-U321H-WK is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to this multimedia projector the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the NEC NP-U321H-WK has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years.

There are a number of other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available which you might want to consider including because of their better review scores, the M322X, or the NP-M322X both from NEC.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Epson 1430Wi (3,300 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Average Noise Level
