NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

NEC is one of the better rated multimedia projector manufacturers according to average expert and user reviews, and NEC also has good reviews for its 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors. 100% of those that bought a NEC multimedia projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Support

No Optical Zoom So Placement is a Little More Difficult, No Lens Cover, Either Manual or Automatic, Supplied

One person who purchased it reckoned that it did not have good technical guidance. Projectorreviews.com wrote “No optical zoom so placement is a little more difficult, no lens cover, either manual or automatic, supplied”.


Price

Reasonably Priced

One owner who reviewed the product thought it was good value for money. Expert review site Projectorreviews.com gave it a score of 5 stars and mentioned “The NP-UM330W is an exceptionally sharp ultra-short throw projector that offers 3300 lumens and a better than most value proposition” in their review of this projector.

Released Over Four Years Ago

This data projector was released in February 2013.


Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this projector, the NEC NP-UM330X-WK1 does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Benq SH960, the Epson 475Wi, or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC NP-UM330X-WK1 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Benq SH960, the LG BC775, or the Hitachi CP-WX4022WN which all of have better reviews.

Performance

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 35 decibels, the NEC NP-UM330X-WK1 has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

We compared all the other 35dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think because of their better review scores, the NP-VE281X, and the VE281 both from NEC or the Infocus IN5132 are also worth considering.

Projector

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the NP-UM330X-WK1 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as this data projector.

We compared this data projector to all the other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think because of its better review score, the NEC UM330Xi (£907.58) is also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the EW695 (£1,298) (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the EX632 (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the TW695 (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated) all from Optoma.

The bulb powers of projectors of this age and spec range from 140W to 400W, and the average bulb power is 230W. The NP-UM330X-WK1 has one of the bigger bulb powers (265 Watts) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Energy

Running Costs Are High

The NP-UM330X-WK1 is in the most expensive 4% of all 97 projectors of a similar spec and age that we have analysed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the NP-UM330X-WK1 will cost £170 over 1 year to run.
