Robust

Several NEC NP-M322 owners thought it was well made. Pcmag.com said on PC Mag “The NEC Display Solutions NP-M322W ($799) is a solid data projector for classroom or business use” and scored it 4 stars.

Good Sound Quality

Several customers who purchased this projector concluded that it had good sound quality.

Good Brand

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

Good Product Quality

One NEC NP-M322 owner said in their reviews that the product was good quality. Pc Mag mentioned “Good data-image quality” in their NEC NP-M322 review.

Supports Full HD Projection

The NP-M322 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the NP-M322 do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support Full HD projection and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson 1980WU[plb_2746486_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NP-M322 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the NEC NP-M322 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by multimedia projectors of this spec and age. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. This NEC data projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution across all multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

The worst supported resolution amongst similar types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most commonly found native projector resolution on 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated power of similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-M322 range from 1W to 20W. At 20 Watts, the NEC NP-M322 has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the NP-M322.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Most projectors of this type and age have between one and two HDMI ports, including the NP-M322 which has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Optical Zoom

The NEC NP-M322 has one of the bigger optical zooms (1.7 times zoom factor) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-M322 the optical zooms range from 1.1x to 2.1x.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The biggest maximum digital resolution of the NP-M322 is 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more maximum digital resolution than the most common maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

A 1920 x 1200 pixels maximum digital resolution is actually the best maximum digital resolution across all multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the NP-M322.

A 1920 x 1080 pixels maximum digital resolution is the worst maximum digital resolution amongst comparable types of data projector.

Across all the data projectors of this spec and age the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 3,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,100h. At 8,000 hours, the NP-M322 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the NP-M322.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

The smallest lamp power of data projectors of a similar type and age to the NP-M322 is 15W and the biggest is 470W. The NEC NP-M322 has a fairly big lamp power (282 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-M322.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

Across all the projectors of a comparable spec and age to the NP-M322 the power consumption in economy mode range from 72W to 420W. With a power consumption in economy mode of only 202 Watts, the NP-M322 has a quite low power consumption in economy mode compared to most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-M322.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The NP-M322 does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the NP-M322 also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Epson EX6220[plb_3076989_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors of this age and type, the NP-M322 does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the PowerLite 1222[pl_2225031_price], or the 1985WU[pl_2785330_price] both from Epson or the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price] which also has a higher rating.

Fairly Loud Noise Level

At 38 decibels, the NP-M322 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years. The average noise level of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the NP-M322 is 36dB.

We compared all the other 38dB noise level data projectors to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The NEC NP-M322 is a one USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-M322 have between one and three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

At 31 decibels, the NEC NP-M322 has a fairly loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-M322. The quietest noise level in economy mode of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 26dB, the loudest is 40dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.

2 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-M322

Released Over Two Years Ago

NEC released the NP-M322 over two years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the NP-M322 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the NP-M322.

We compared all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite 580[plb_2175976_price], and the NEC M322[plb_2268469_price] is also worth considering.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Epson 1430Wi[plb_2953476_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
