13 Reasons For

One Industry Award

This multimedia projector received a "Hot Product" award from Projectorreviews.com.

Good Expert Reviews

This projector received an expert rating of 80 out of 100 from IT Reviews.com.

NEC Has Good Projector Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all NEC multimedia projectors and also specifically for NEC 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases NEC had good ratings compared to other brands.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The NP-UM330 supports WiFi connectivity, unlike most of the other projectors of this spec and age which do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson BrightLink 436Wi[plb_1875520_price].

Other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to look at include the Epson EB-425W[plb_1844228_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC NP-UM330 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M271X[plb_1525269_price] is also worth considering.

4 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-UM330

Released Over Four Years Ago

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

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,300 ANSI lumens, the NP-UM330 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including the NEC UM330[plb_1525062_price] which has better reviews.

If this 3000:1 contrast ratio data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Infocus IN3118[plb_2221772_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Average Noise Level

The NEC NP-UM330 has a relatively standard noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-UM330.

If you would consider a multimedia projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the NEC VE281[plb_1473677_price] (35dB).
