Pcmag.com also wrote “A WXGA projector meant for use in up to midsize rooms, has good brightness and data-image quality, loud audio”. Pc Mag wrote last year “Good data-image quality in our tests”.

NEC Projectors Have Good Reviews

Data projectors manufactured by NEC generally have good ratings.

Acceptable Noise Level

One customer wrote in their reviews that this projector was noisy. Expert website Pcmag.com wrote “Businesses, is bright enough and has loud enough audio to be usable in a small to midsize room” in their review of this projector.

Good Sound Quality

One NEC NP-M323W owner who purchased this projector considered that it had good sound quality.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NEC NP-M323W supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the NP-M323W which do not support 3D image projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Acer K137i[plb_3828536_price], or the NEC P502HL[plb_2988130_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC NP-M323W has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-M323W also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic PT-LW362[plb_3399991_price], the Sagemcom PicoPix PPX4935[plb_3160843_price], and the Philips PPX4150[plb_2837273_price] is also worth considering.
