Energy

Running Costs Are Low

The V281W is one of the cheaper to run 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the V281W will cost only £86 over 1 year to run.


Reviews

Good Brand

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors manufactured by NEC have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all multimedia projectors (not just 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that NEC also has good ratings across its entire range. 100% of those that bought a NEC multimedia projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.

Released Over Three Years Ago

This multimedia projector has been on the market since October 2013.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC V281W has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Epson V11H475020 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as this multimedia projector, the NEC V281W does not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Epson 475Wi, or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A are also worth considering.

What is full HD? Less Chart Hide Chart Edit

HD-Ready

The NEC V281W is HD-Ready. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec also are HD-Ready.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,800 ANSI lumens, the NEC V281W has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to this multimedia projector.

We compared all the other 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this data projector and we think the NEC VE281 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Sony VPL-SW235 (£656.73) (3,000 ANSI lumens).
