13 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

NEC has good average ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago, the NEC M303WS supports 3D image projection.

Other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper projectors such as the Panasonic PT-VX425N ($1,282.95), or the Acer P1515.

Alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to look at include the Benq MW855UST ($1,299.99).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The NEC M303WS supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is actually the best supported resolution across all projectors that were launched around the same time as the M303WS.

The worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of data projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the M303WS support Full HD projection, however the NEC M303WS does not support Full HD projection.

Other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the Panasonic PT-VX425N ($1,282.95), the Acer P1515, or the NEC M403W ($1,237.49) which is also cheaper.

Quite Small Lamp Power

When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago that we have assessed the lamp power of, the NEC M303WS's lamp power of only 171 Watts is one of the smallest. The smallest lamp power of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the M303WS is 170W, the biggest is 420W, and the average lamp power is 250W.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power in Economic Mode

Projectors of this age and spec have lamp powers in economic mode of between 120W and 280W, and the average lamp power in economic mode is 180W. With a lamp power in economic mode of only 135 Watts, the NEC M303WS has one of the dimmer lamp powers in economic mode amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Digital Zoom

The smallest digital zoom of data projectors of this type and age is 1.1x and the biggest is 2x. With a digital zoom of only 1.2 times zoom factor, the NEC M303WS has one of the smaller digital zooms amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.
