12 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Data Projector Reviews

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

Supports Full HD Projection

The NEC M322 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the M322 do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think a cheaper data projector such as the Optoma DH1017 or you might consider a higher scoring data projector such as the Benq W1300 are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC M322 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the M322 also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Optoma X600 ($1,250.82), or the Benq W1300 which has better reviews; or the Optoma DH1017 which is cheaper.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The NEC M322 supports a maximum resolution of 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 comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the M322. 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, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 768, 1280 x 800, 1600 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Data projectors of this spec and age graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This multimedia projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most commonly found native projector resolution on 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

At 20 Watts, the NEC M322 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. Across all the data projectors that were released more than two years ago the RMS rated power range from 1W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Maximum Vertical Synchronization

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the M322 the maximum vertical synchronization range from 0.085kHz to 240kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 68kHz. The NEC M322 has a fairly high maximum vertical synchronization (120 kilohertz) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Most multimedia projectors of this age and spec have between one and two HDMI ports, including the NEC M322 which has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

The NEC M322 is a two audio in port projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the M322 have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The biggest maximum digital resolution of the NEC M322 is 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more maximum digital resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels projector, which is the most frequently found maximum digital resolution.

A 1920 x 1200 pixels maximum digital resolution is in fact the best maximum digital resolution amongst all 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

A 1920 x 1080 pixels maximum digital resolution is the worst maximum digital resolution amongst comparable types of projector.

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At 8,000 hours, the NEC M322 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the M322. 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M322 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 3,500h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,100h.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

The average power consumption in economy mode of data projectors of a similar age and type to the M322 is 250W. The NEC M322 has a fairly low power consumption in economy mode (only 202 Watts) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support 3D image projection. The NEC M322 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider including the Optoma DH1017; or the Optoma X600 ($1,250.82), or the Benq W1300.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The NEC M322 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Lamp Power in Economic Mode

Multimedia projectors of this age and type have lamp powers in economic mode of between 130W and 30,000W. At only 135 Watts, the NEC M322 has a quite dim lamp power in economic mode compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the M322.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Lamp Service Life

Across all the multimedia projectors of this age and spec the lamp service lives range from 500h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 6,300h. At only 3,500 hours, the NEC M322 has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the M322.

Chart Edit
