7 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

We checked the reviews from owners and experts of hundreds of data projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average NEC multimedia projectors have good ratings from experts and users.

DCI 4K (4096 X 2160) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the PH1201QL is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160). That's over four times the resolution of a 1080p (1920x1080) projector, which is the most common resolution.

This projector's resolution (DCI 4K (4096 x 2160)) is in fact the best resolution amongst all comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PH1201QL.

An nHD (640x360) projector native resolution is the worst resolution across comparable types of projector.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 12,000 ANSI lumens, the PH1201QL has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the PH1201QL. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released one year ago the projector brightnesss range from 2,700 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than a year ago, the PH1201QL supports full HD.

Other projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to consider include the Canon WUX6000 which has better reviews.

4096 X 2160 Supported Graphics Resolutions

The PH1201QL supports a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160. That's over three times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). In addition, this NEC multimedia projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 2048 x 1080 and 3840 x 2160 and 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

A 4096 x 2160 supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution across all data projectors that have been around for more than a year.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution across similar types of projector.

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The PH1201QL has more HDMI ports quantitys than most of the multimedia projectors of this spec and age. This projector is a two HDMI ports quantity projector compared to most of the data projectors of this spec and age which only have one HDMI ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Very Long Service Life of Lamp

When compared to other projectors of this spec and age, the PH1201QL's service life of lamp of 20,000 hours is one of the longest. The service life of lamps of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PH1201QL range from 1,500h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,300h.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC PH1201QL does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PH1201QL do have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to look at including the Canon WUX6000 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D

Most projectors of a similar age and type to the PH1201QL do not support 3D. The PH1201QL is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors of this age and type do not support wi-Fi. The NEC PH1201QL is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

The PH1201QL has an average 1 year running cost of £513 based on average energy prices, which makes it one of the less economic to run 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than a year.

Chart

Very Loud Noise Level

The NEC PH1201QL has one of the loudest noise levels (54 decibels) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago have noise levels of between 28dB and 54dB, and the average noise level is 38dB.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Canon WUX6000 (40dB) which is also higher rated.

Very Heavy

The weights of data projectors of a similar age and spec to the PH1201QL range from 850g to 68kg, and the average weight is 9.6kg. When compared to other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PH1201QL that we have checked the weight of, the NEC PH1201QL's weight of 67.5 kilograms is one of the heaviest.
