8 Reasons For
Projectors from NEC have an average rating of 83%, which is in the top 34% of all projector manufacturers that we have analysed.
Unlike most of the other projectors of this age and spec which do not support 3D, the NEC P502H supports 3D.
Supports Full HD
Like most of the other projectors of this spec and age, the NEC P502H supports full HD.
Other data projectors which support full HD currently available that you might want to look at include the NEC P502W[plb_3268041_price] which is cheaper.
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
The NEC P502H has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 6000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the P502H also have a built-in speaker(s).
We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the UM352Wi[pl_3119671_price], and the P502W[pl_3268041_price] both from NEC which is cheaper is also worth considering.
1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution
This projector has a projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is typical of many projectors that are a comparable age to it.
Quite High Vertical Synchronization (max)
Across all the data projectors that have been around for more than a year the vertical synchronization (max)s range from 0.085kHz to 120kHz, and the average vertical synchronization (max) is 58kHz. The NEC P502H has a quite high vertical synchronization (max) (120 kilohertz) compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the P502H.
+3 More reasons for
Quite High Horizontal Synchronization (max)
At 100 kilohertz, the NEC P502H has a quite high horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the P502H. Similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the P502H have horizontal synchronization (max)s of between 91kHz and 110kHz, and the average horizontal synchronization (max) is 97kHz.
Across all the multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the P502H the weights range from 5.2kg to 5.8kg. The NEC P502H is fairly light (only 5.2 kilograms) compared to most of the other 6000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the P502H.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
Most projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P502H do not support wi-Fi. The NEC P502H is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.
Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)
The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of data projectors that were released around the same time as the P502H is 6,000h, and the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 5,000h to 8,000h. At only 5,000 hours, the NEC P502H has a fairly short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P502H.
Very Short Service Life of Lamp
At only 4,000 hours, the NEC P502H has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the P502H. The shortest service life of lamp of 6000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the P502H is 4,000h and the longest is 5,000h.
Fairly High Power Consumption (economy Mode)
Data projectors of a similar age and spec to the P502H have power consumption (economy mode)s of between 190W and 310W, and the average power consumption (economy mode) is 250W. At 305 Watts, the NEC P502H has a quite high power consumption (economy mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the P502H.
+3 More reasons against
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys
The NEC P502H is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity projector.
The price range of data projectors of a similar age and type is from £690 to £1,767. We think that this 6000:1 contrast ratio projector looks expensive compared to other data projectors of a similar age and type.
4 Other reasons to consider the NEC P502H
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this multimedia projector was released.
Average Projector Brightness
The NEC P502H has a pretty standard projector brightness (4,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 6000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the P502H.
If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the NEC P502W[plb_3268041_price] (5,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
Running Costs Are Average
The P502H is typical compared to the other 7 projectors of a comparable age and type that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the P502H is £121.
+2 Other reasons
Average Noise Level
At 36 decibels, the NEC P502H has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.
We compared all the other 36dB noise level data projectors to this projector and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the NEC P502W[plb_3268041_price] is also worth considering.
If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the NEC UM352Wi[plb_3119671_price] (29dB) which is also cheaper.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the NEC P502Huses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.6 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 16 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
