NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good ratings on average and across all projectors NEC is one of the superior brands.

Good Product Quality

One person reckoned that it was good quality. Expert review site Pcmag.com said “Excellent quality for data images” in their review of this projector and gave this projector a score of 4 stars.

This projector also support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 768, 1280 x 800, 1280 x 960, 1440 x 900, 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), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXG.
