7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The NEC M332 does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the M332 also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the NEC M302[plb_2250185_price], or the Optoma X600[plb_2067505_price] or the Optoma EH500[plb_2026249_price] are also worth considering.

Like most of the other projectors of this age and spec, the NEC M332 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Epson EB-1985WU[plb_2399673_price]; or the Optoma EH500[plb_2026249_price] are also worth considering.

NEC's NP-M332XS 3D-capable short-throw projector is bright enough for a small to midsize room, and you can place it close to the screen and still get a nice big image...

Bright
Short-throw lens for a big image from close to the screen
Nearly rainbow-free data images
Although 3D works with sources like Blu-ray players, using it is awkward
