12 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Projector Reviews

10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors produced by NEC have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all data projectors (not just 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that NEC also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports Full HD Projection

The NEC M362 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the M362 do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support Full HD projection and we think the Vivitek H1180HD[plb_2341133_price] which is cheaper; or the TH682[pl_2448398_price], and the MH680[pl_1998672_price] both from Benq which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NEC M362 supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other data projectors of this age and type which do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think a cheaper data projector such as the Vivitek H1180HD[plb_2341133_price] or you might consider a higher rated data projector such as the TH682[pl_2448398_price], and the MH680[pl_1998672_price] both from Benq are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC M362 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the M362.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Benq TH682[plb_2448398_price] which has better reviews; or the Acer P5207[plb_1629284_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the NEC NP-L102[plb_2571624_price] is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the NEC M362 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the M362. This NEC multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 960, 1366 x 768, 1600 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), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x 1080 (HD 108. The resolution of all projectors that were released more than two years ago ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,600 ANSI lumens, the NEC M362 has one of the brighter projector brightness amongst data projectors of this age. The projector brightness of comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the M362 range from 300 ANSI lumens to 20,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 33 decibels, the NEC M362 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age. The quietest noise level of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M362 is 28dB, the loudest is 49dB, and the average noise level is 36dB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 33dB noise level projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer K335[plb_1598465_price], or the Benq W1400[plb_1731595_price].

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Benq MX852[plb_2254642_price] (33dB).
