16 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Projector Reviews

On average NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good ratings compared to other brands as do all projectors built by NEC.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NEC M403H supports 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the M403H also support 3D image projection.

Other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to look at include the Benq MH856UST[plb_2921325_price], or the Acer U5520B[plb_3013609_price] which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Benq MW883UST[plb_3181970_price].

Supports Full HD Projection

The NEC M403H supports Full HD projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the M403H also support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might want to look at including the Benq W3000[plb_3190084_price] which has better reviews; or the Benq MH856UST[plb_2921325_price] which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq MW883UST[plb_3181970_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the M403H, the NEC M403H has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq W3000[plb_3190084_price] which has better reviews; or the Panasonic PT-VX605N[plb_3123717_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the Epson EB-1420Wi[plb_2369727_price] is also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The NEC M403H has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution. The best resolution of all projectors that have been around for around the same time as the M403H is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is XGA (1024x768).

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year the projector brightness range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens. At 4,000 ANSI lumens, the NEC M403H has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the M403H.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-VX605N[plb_3123717_price] (5,500 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
