9 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

NEC 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors have good ratings on average and across all projectors NEC is one of the superior brands.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The NP-P501X supports WiFi connectivity, unlike most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-P501X which do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available including because of it's better review score, the L51W, or the NP-P451 ($1,477.91) both from NEC.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and type, the NP-P501X has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC L51W is also worth considering.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 5,000 ANSI lumens, the NP-P501X has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the NP-P501X. The average projector brightness of similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-P501X is 3,700 ANSI lumens.

We compared this projector to all the other 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC P501X ($1,450.60) is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The NP-P501X supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors of a similar spec and age to the NP-P501X. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this NEC projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-P501X the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The NP-P501X is a two HDMI port projector. Most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-P501X only have one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Lamp Power

With a lamp power of 270 Watts, the NP-P501X has a quite big lamp power compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years. The average lamp power of similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago is 230W, and the lamp power range from 180W to 380W.

Chart Edit

Supports Four Image Formats

The number of supported image formats on the NEC NP-P501X is more than most 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as it. This NEC multimedia projector supports a GIF image format, which is the most frequently supported image format supported by multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the NP-P501X. The image formats "BMP", "JPG" and "PNG" are also supported by this data projector.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Lamp Power in Economic Mode

Across all the multimedia projectors of this spec and age the lamp powers in economic mode range from 1W to 160W. At 160 Watts, the NP-P501X has a very bright lamp power in economic mode compared to most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-P501X.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The NP-P501X does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors of this age and type also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection. The NEC NP-P501X is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NEC L51W.

Only AAC++ Supported Audio Format

This data projector supported audio format, which is typical of many projectors of this age and type.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-P501X

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when NEC released the NP-P501X.

Average Noise Level

The NEC NP-P501X has a relatively typical noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the NP-P501X.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 37dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-P451 ($1,477.91).
