Robust

Three NEC NP-UM351W reviewers who reviewed it agreed that it was well made. Expert review site Pcmag.com mentioned “The NEC Display Solutions NP-UM351W ($1,369) is a bright data projector for classroom or business use that offers good brightness, loud sound, solid data- and video-image quality”. Pcmag.com also wrote “The NEC Display Solutions NP-UM361X is a WXGA ultra-short-throw data projector that offers solid data- and video-image quality”. Last year Pc Mag said in their review of the NEC NP-UM351W on PC Mag “Image quality, though solid, is unimpressive”.
