9 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Projectors manufactured by NEC are some of the better projectors according to average user and expert reviews.

Supports 3D

The NEC PA522 supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the PA522 do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available including the NEC PA572[plb_2406093_price] which is cheaper.

Supports Full HD

The NEC PA522 supports full HD, unlike most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the PA522 which do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support full HD and we think cheaper projectors such as the NEC PA572[plb_2406093_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC PA522 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider including the Panasonic PT-EW730[plb_2130354_price], or the NEC PA572[plb_2406093_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the Panasonic PT-EX800ZLE[plb_2130355_price] is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC PA522

Running Costs Are OK

The PA522 is typical compared to the other 54 projectors of this age and type that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the PA522 is £149.
