10 Reasons For

Excellent Expert Reviews

This NEC projector received a rating of 94 out of 100 from expert review website pcformat.pl. If all the data projectors of this age and type are ranked by average expert review score then this projector is in the top 1%.

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

We calculated the average ratings for all NEC data projectors and also specifically for NEC 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors and found that in both cases NEC had good ratings.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NEC L51W supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago which do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The NEC L51W supports WiFi connectivity, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the L51W which do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC L51W has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the L51W.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the NEC P501X[plb_1555276_price].

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the NEC L51W is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of a similar age and type to the L51W. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 960, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all projectors of this type and age the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the NEC L51W is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768).

This multimedia projector's resolution (WXGA (1280x800)) is actually the best resolution across all similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the L51W.

Across similar types of multimedia projector the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768).

Very Long Lamp Service Life

Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the L51W the lamp service lives range from 2,000h to 20,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,700h. When compared to other projectors of a similar spec and age to the L51W that we have checked, the NEC L51W's lamp service life of 20,000 hours is one of the longest.

Chart Edit

Light

When compared to other multimedia projectors of this spec and age that we have assessed the weight of, the NEC L51W's weight of only 1.2 kilograms is one of the lightest. The lightest similar spec projector that has been around for a comparable time to the L51W is 1.2kg heavy and the heaviest is 28kg.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The narrowest 4000:1 contrast ratio data projector that has been around for around the same time as the L51W is 220mm wide and the widest is 540mm. When compared to other projectors of a similar age and type to the L51W that we have assessed, the NEC L51W's width of only 226 millimeters is one of the narrowest.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The NEC L51W does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the L51W also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the NEC P501X[plb_1555276_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

When compared to other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the L51W that we have assessed the projector brightness of, the NEC L51W's projector brightness of only 500 ANSI lumens is one of the dimmest. Across all the 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the L51W the projector brightness range from 500 ANSI lumens to 13,000 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the NEC P501X[plb_1555276_price] (5,000 ANSI lumens).
