15 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Good

Expert review site IT Reviews.com scored this 3000:1 contrast ratio data projector 80%.

NEC Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors built by NEC have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that NEC also has good reviews across its entire range.

Good Size

One NEC NP-M311W owner who purchased it concluded that it was easy to carry around. Itreviews.com gave the product a rating of 4 stars and mentioned on expert review site IT Reviews.com “In particular, it’s LCD based, it’s just as easy to carry” in their NEC NP-M311W review.

Acceptable Noise Level

One NEC NP-M311W owner thought the product was noisy. Expert review site Itreviews.com gave the product a rating of 80 out of 100 and wrote in their review of the NEC NP-M311W “A usefully loud audio system”.

Good Sound Quality

One NEC NP-M311W owner who purchased it considered that it had good sound quality.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the NP-M311W which do not support 3D image projection, the NEC NP-M311W supports 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NP-M311W has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is the most commonly supported graphics resolution on projectors of a similar spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many data projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the NP-M311W has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of 1.7 times zoom factor, the NEC NP-M311W has a fairly big optical zoom compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the NP-M311W. The smallest optical zoom of data projectors of a comparable type and age to the NP-M311W is 1x and the biggest is 2x.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The service life of lamp in economic mode of projectors of this type and age range from 230h to 20,000h. The NP-M311W has one of the longer service life of lamp in economic mode (8,000 hours) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of only 28 decibels, the NP-M311W has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the NP-M311W. Across all the comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-M311W the noise levels in economy mode range from 26dB to 35dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

At only 0.2 Watts, the NEC NP-M311W has a fairly low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. The average power consumption during PowerSave of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the NP-M311W is 170W, and the power consumption during PowerSave range from 0.1W to 330W.

3 Reasons Against

Poor Product Quality

One NEC NP-M311W owner who bought the NEC NP-M311W thought it was not good quality. Three years ago It Reviews.com wrote in their review of the NEC NP-M311W on IT Reviews.com “Good (not great) audio quality”.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support WiFi connectivity. The NP-M311W is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this multimedia projector and we think the NEC NP-UM330 ($1,640.31) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The NEC NP-M311W does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the NP-M311W also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-M311W

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when NEC released the NP-M311W.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 35 decibels, the NEC NP-M311W has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-M311W.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 35dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including the NP-VE281X ($400.00), or the VE281 both from NEC which has better reviews.
