11 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The average running cost of the UM280 is only £79 over 1 year based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 13% of all 89 data projectors of this age and type.

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

On average NEC 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all data projectors built by NEC.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC UM280 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper data projectors such as the Hitachi CP-CW300WN[plb_2411979_price].

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Sony VPL-SX630[plb_2576926_price], or the Hitachi CP-X5022[plb_1857320_price].

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the UM280 the projector brightness (economic mode)s range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 4,400 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness (economic mode) is 2,400 ANSI lumens. The NEC UM280 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (economic mode)s (only 1,680 ANSI lumen) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

The lamp power (economic mode)s of data projectors of a similar type and age to the UM280 range from 110W to 6,000W, and the average lamp power (economic mode) is 760W. The NEC UM280 has a fairly dim lamp power (economic mode) (only 140 Watts) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the UM280.
