Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC U321H has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the BrightLink 575Wi, or the EB-1420Wi (£1,649.99) both from Epson or the Acer P7305 (£1,669.97) are also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Resolution

The NEC U321H has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to this projector the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the NEC U321H has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this multimedia projector.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including a cheaper data projector such as the Benq MW853 (£1,261) or you might consider a higher rated data projector such as the Benq MW853UST+.

Video

Supports Full HD

The NEC U321H supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors which support full HD and we think the 1985WU, and the 1980WU (£899.99) both from Epson which and both of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If you would consider a multimedia projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the BrightLink 575Wi (35dB), or the BrightLink 585WI+ (35dB) both from Epson or the Panasonic PT-RW330E (£1,859.75) (35dB).
