Released Over Three Years Ago

This multimedia projector has been on the market for over three years.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the NEC V311 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

Alternative 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available which you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the BrightLink Pro 1410Wi[pl_1901965_price], or the BrightLink 485Wi[pl_1778249_price] both from Epson or the Optoma TW610STi[plb_1749808_price].

If this NEC projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the VPL-SX235[pl_2284442_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens), the VPL-DX142[pl_2446393_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-DX147[pl_2516968_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) all from Sony which also has a higher rating.
