9 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good reviews on average and across all data projectors NEC is one of the superior brands.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NP-M403X supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the NP-M403X.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Epson Home Cinema 600[plb_3077179_price].

Supports Full HD Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the NP-M403X, the NP-M403X supports Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the NP-M403X, the NEC NP-M403X has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite W29[plb_2896328_price].

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Projectors of a comparable age and type to the NP-M403X have projector brightness of between 600 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens. The NEC NP-M403X has a quite bright projector brightness (4,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that were released one year ago.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price] which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens), the PT-VX420[pl_3723242_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens), or the PT-DW830E[pl_3897896_price] (8,500 ANSI lumens) all from Panasonic.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the NEC NP-M403X is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). This multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all data projectors of this age and type.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of projector.

Fairly Big Lamp Power

The average lamp power of similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-M403X is 250W. With a lamp power of 270 Watts, the NEC NP-M403X has one of the bigger lamp power amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on data projectors of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

The lowest power consumption during PowerSave of projectors of a similar type and age to the NP-M403X is 0.18W and the highest is 290W. The NP-M403X has one of the lower power consumption during PowerSave (only 0.2 Watts) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The NEC NP-M403X does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of data projectors of a similar spec and age to the NP-M403X is 1,500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 6,500h. The NP-M403X has a quite short lamp service life (only 3,500 hours) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the NP-M403X.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

Most comparable spec projectors that came out more than a year ago have between one and three USB 2.0 ports, including the NEC NP-M403X which has one USB 2.0 port.
