5 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Data Projector Reviews

NEC is one of the superior projector manufacturers according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Supports 3D

The NEC U300X supports 3D, unlike most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the U300X which do not support 3D.

We compared all the other data projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC U300X has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the U300X.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NEC U300X supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). This projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all data projectors that came out around the same time as the U300X the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to it.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The NEC U300X does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the U300X also do not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD which you might want to look at including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC U300X does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support wi-Fi.

Other projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to consider include the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At only 3,000 hours, the NEC U300X has a quite short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the U300X. Multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the U300X have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 2,500h and 10,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The quietest noise level (economic mode) of multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the U300X is 26dB, the loudest is 37dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB. At 32 decibels, the NEC U300X has a quite loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the U300X.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

The average matrix size of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 0.65". With a matrix size of only 0.55 inches, the NEC U300X has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

5 Other reasons to consider the NEC U300X

Running Costs Are OK

The U300X has an average running cost of £120 over 1 year based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 85 projectors of this type and age.

Released Over Four Years Ago

This projector has been on the market for over four years.

Average Noise Level

The NEC U300X has a fairly typical noise level (36 decibels) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 36dB noise level projectors currently available including the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which has better reviews.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Sony VPLFH31[plb_1475953_price] (37dB), or the Benq SP870[plb_1387494_price] (36dB).
