8 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

Projector expert review website PC Mag scored this multimedia projector 70%.

NEC Has Good Projector Reviews

NEC has good average reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other brands.

Good High Def TV

One NEC U321H owner concluded that the product was good at displaying high definition TV. Pcmag.com scored the product 4 stars and mentioned “Its ultra-short-throw lens lets you project a large image when the projector is placed mere inches from the screen, and its 1080p full HD resol”.

Supports Full HD

The NEC U321H supports full HD, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the U321H which do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma EH515 (£1,893.48) is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors of this type and age, the NEC U321H has a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the CP-WU5500 (£1,460.71), or the CP-WU5505 (£1,662.96) both from Hitachi or the Optoma W515 (£1,807.20) which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native 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). The worst resolution of all data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the U321H is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The NEC U321H is a two HDMI ports quantity multimedia projector. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than a year ago have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Lamp Power (economic Mode)

With a lamp power (economic mode) of 220 Watts, the NEC U321H has one of the brighter lamp power (economic mode)s amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age. 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the U321H have lamp power (economic mode)s of between 120W and 280W, and the average lamp power (economic mode) is 180W.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC U321H does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors that were launched more than a year ago also do not support wi-Fi.

Alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to look at include the EB-1420Wi (£1,296.89), or the EB-1430Wi (£1,953.74) both from Epson which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The NEC U321H does not support 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the U321H also do not support 3D.

Only 640 X 480 (VGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This multimedia projector supports supported graphics resolutionss of 640 x 480 (VGA), 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 800 x 600 (SVGA), 832 x 624, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1152 x 870, 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1280 x 960, 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 1600 x 900 and 1680 x, which is the most commonly supported supported graphics resolutions on projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Pricey

We checked 69 comparable spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago and they range in price from £200 to £6,779. We think that this 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector looks expensive compared to other comparable spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago.

Very Small Offset

The smallest offset of comparable spec projectors that were released more than a year ago is 62%, the biggest is 150%, and the average offset is 100%. The NEC U321H has one of the smaller offsets (only 65 percent) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The NEC U321H has one of the shorter service life of lamp (economic mode)s (only 4,000 hours) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of projectors of a comparable spec and age to the U321H is 1,000h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 7,100h.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp

Across all the data projectors that are a comparable age to the U321H the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 5,800h. At only 3,000 hours, the NEC U321H has a quite short service life of lamp compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the U321H.

Chart Edit

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

The NEC U321H has a fairly low RMS rated power (only 8 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the U321H. The lowest RMS rated power of multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the U321H is 2W, the highest is 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 13W.
