8 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the U260W will cost only £100 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the more economic to run 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

NEC Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

On average projectors manufactured by NEC are rated 83%, which is in the top 34% of all projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

Supports 3D

The NEC U260W supports 3D, unlike most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the U260W which do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available including the NEC U310W which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC U260W has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the U260W also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite 935W.

1280 X 1024 (SXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NEC U260W supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024 (SXGA). That's over four times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this NEC projector). This data projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The worst resolution of all comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the U260W is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The NEC U260W has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all multimedia projectors of this spec and age the resolution ranges from XGA (1024x768) (worst) to WUXGA (1920x1200) (best).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years is 36dB, and the noise levels range from 28dB to 42dB. With a noise level of only 33 decibels, the NEC U260W has one of the quieter noise levels amongst projectors of this age.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Sony VPLFH31 (£2,346.00) (37dB), or the Benq SP870 (£838.80) (36dB).

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the U260W do not support full HD. The NEC U260W is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC U260W does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this data projector and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W, or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of multimedia projectors of this age and spec is 4,100 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesss range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the NEC U260W has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

The service life of lamps of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years range from 200h to 30,000h. At only 2,500 hours, the NEC U260W has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the U260W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

The NEC U260W has a fairly small bulb power (only 230 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the U260W the bulb powers range from 170W to 4,000W.
