13 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

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

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the M403W, the NEC M403W supports 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection which you might also want to look at including the Acer P1515[plb_2417211_price], the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price], or the NEC M303WS[plb_3113387_price].

Supports Full HD Projection

The NEC M403W supports Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the M403W also support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including cheaper projectors such as the NEC M333XS[plb_3113388_price].

It is worth considering other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Acer P1515[plb_2417211_price], or the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC M403W has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the M403W also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the CPAW2505[pl_3820160_price], or the CPX4041WN[pl_3393438_price] both from Hitachi.

There are a number of other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider including the Acer P1515[plb_2417211_price].

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The NEC M403W has a quite bright projector brightness (4,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the M403W range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Hitachi CPX4041WN[plb_3393438_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens), or the Panasonic PT-VX420[plb_3723242_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the NEC M403W is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of a similar age and spec to the M403W. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this NEC multimedia projector. This data projector also support graphics resolutions of 720 x 576, 800 x 600 (SVGA), 832 x 624, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1152 x 870, 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1376 x 768, 1440 x 1050, 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1440 x 900, 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1600 x 900 and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+). The resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released one year ago ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

When compared to other projectors that came out around the same time as the M403W that we have assessed, the RMS rated power of the NEC M403W of 20 Watts is one of the highest. Across all the multimedia projectors that were released one year ago the RMS rated power range from 1W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 12W.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Maximum Vertical Synchronization

At 120 kilohertz, the NEC M403W has a fairly high maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the M403W. The maximum vertical synchronization of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the M403W range from 0.085kHz to 120kHz.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The NEC M403W is a two HDMI port data projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago have between one and two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of projectors of a comparable age and type to the M403W is 27dB, the loudest is 47dB, and the average noise level is 34dB. At only 30 decibels, the NEC M403W has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the M403W.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Acer P1515[plb_2417211_price] (33dB), or the Benq MW853UST+[plb_2893619_price] (33dB).

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the M403W have lamp service lives of between 1,500h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 6,500h. At 5,500 hours, the NEC M403W has a quite long lamp service life compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M403W.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

The NEC M403W has one of the bigger lamp power (270 Watts) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. The smallest lamp power of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the M403W is 170W, the biggest is 420W, and the average lamp power is 250W.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to it.

2 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the M403W, the NEC M403W does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth also looking at other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price], or the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] both from Panasonic.
