8 Reasons For

NEC Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good reviews as do all projectors produced by NEC.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the U321Hi which do not support full HD, the NEC U321Hi supports full HD.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC U321Hi has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

Other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to consider include the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The NEC U321Hi has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). The best resolution of all data projectors of this age and type is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is XGA (1024x768).

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NEC U321Hi is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors that have been around for around the same time as the U321Hi. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 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 x 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 and 1600 x 900 and 1680 x 1050 (WS. 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the U321Hi supported graphics resolutionss range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The NEC U321Hi is a two HDMI ports quantity projector. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the U321Hi have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The NEC U321Hi is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity multimedia projector. Most of the other projectors of this type and age have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Lamp Power (economic Mode)

At 220 Watts, the NEC U321Hi has a fairly bright lamp power (economic mode) compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the U321Hi. The average lamp power (economic mode) of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the U321Hi is 180W, and the lamp power (economic mode)s range from 120W to 280W.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the U321Hi, the NEC U321Hi does not support 3D.

There are a number of other projectors which also support 3D which you might also want to consider including the Acer K137[plb_2190933_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC U321Hi does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Small Offset

The offsets of similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the U321Hi range from 62% to 150%. The NEC U321Hi has a fairly small offset (only 65 percent) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the U321Hi.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

Projectors that were released more than a year ago have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 1,000h and 30,000h. The NEC U321Hi has a fairly short service life of lamp (economic mode) (only 4,000 hours) compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the U321Hi.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

The NEC U321Hi has one of the shorter service life of lamps (only 3,000 hours) amongst projectors of this age. Across all the projectors that were released more than a year ago the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption (economy Mode)

The lowest power consumption (economy mode) of projectors of a similar age and spec to the U321Hi is 170W, the highest is 760W, and the average power consumption (economy mode) is 250W. The NEC U321Hi has one of the higher power consumption (economy mode)s (264 Watts) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

4 Other reasons to consider the NEC U321Hi

Running Costs Are OK

The U321Hi is typical compared to the other 88 multimedia projectors of this type and age that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the U321Hi will cost £103 over 1 year to run.

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this NEC data projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the NEC U321Hi has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the U321Hi.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the MW883UST[pl_3181970_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the MX882UST[pl_3258682_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens) both from Benq.
