7 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all NEC projectors and also specifically for NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors and found that in both cases NEC had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD Projection

Like most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the NP-U321H-WK, the NEC NP-U321H-WK supports Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC NP-U321H-WK has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the NP-U321H-WK is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution. The worst resolution of all multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the NP-U321H-WK is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the NP-U321H-WK is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-U321H-WK. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 576 (WSVGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all similar spec data projectors that were released one year ago the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

Data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the NP-U321H-WK have power consumption during PowerSave of between 0.18W and 290W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 130W. The NP-U321H-WK has a quite low power consumption during PowerSave (only 0.18 Watts) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-U321H-WK.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The NEC NP-U321H-WK does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year which support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-U321H-WK do not support WiFi connectivity. The NEC NP-U321H-WK is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price].

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The NP-U321H-WK has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode (only 4,000 hours) compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for more than a year. The service life of lamp in economic mode of comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the NP-U321H-WK range from 3,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,900h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The NP-U321H-WK has one of the shorter lamp service lives (only 3,000 hours) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The average lamp service life of projectors of this spec and age is 6,500h, and the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption in Economy Mode

The NP-U321H-WK has a fairly high power consumption in economy mode (272 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the NP-U321H-WK the power consumption in economy mode range from 170W to 760W, and the average power consumption in economy mode is 250W.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-U321H-WK

Released Over a Year Ago

This multimedia projector has been on the market for over a year.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the NEC NP-U321H-WK has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-U321H-WK.

We compared all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this data projector and we think the Epson PowerLite 955W[plb_2181186_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the NEC M333XS[plb_3113388_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP -AW3005[plb_3406373_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens).

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 34 decibels, the NP-U321H-WK has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 34dB noise level projectors currently available including the Benq W1350[plb_2750779_price] which has better reviews.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Epson EB-1430Wi[plb_2369726_price] (35dB), or the Acer K135[plb_1598409_price] (33dB).
