6 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Projector Reviews

Projectors manufactured by NEC have an average rating of 83 out of 100, which is in the top 37% of all multimedia projector brands that we have analysed.

Supports Full HD Projection

The NP-PA521U-13ZL supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-PA521U-13ZL do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq W1060 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NP-PA521U-13ZL has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Benq W1060 which has better reviews.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the NP-PA521U-13ZL is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

This multimedia projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution amongst all 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

The worst resolution across similar types of multimedia projector is XGA (1024x768).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The NP-PA521U-13ZL supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors of this age and spec. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this data projector 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 actually the best supported resolution amongst all projectors of this type and age.

Amongst similar types of projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

Across all the projectors of this spec and age the power consumption during PowerSave range from 0.11W to 730W. With a power consumption during PowerSave of only 0.11 Watts, the NEC NP-PA521U-13ZL has one of the lower power consumption during PowerSave amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL do not support 3D image projection. The NP-PA521U-13ZL is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Z8455WUNL, or the PowerLite W16 ($849.00) both from Epson which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors of this spec and age, the NP-PA521U-13ZL does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The NP-PA521U-13ZL is a one VGA (D-Sub) port projector.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The NEC NP-PA521U-13ZL is a one USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago have noise levels in economy mode of between 28dB and 35dB. At 33 decibels, the NEC NP-PA521U-13ZL has a quite loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-PA521U-13ZL

Released Over Two Years Ago

This projector has been on the market for over two years.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 39 decibels, the NP-PA521U-13ZL has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the NEC PA572 (39dB).
