10 Reasons For

NEC Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all NEC data projectors and also specifically for NEC 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors and found that in both cases NEC had good ratings.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC P401 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including the NEC P501X which has better reviews.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The NEC P401 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA).

This multimedia projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the P401.

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

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The NEC P401 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution.

This projector's resolution (WXGA (1280x800)) is actually the best resolution amongst all similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the P401.

An XGA (1024x768) native projector resolution is the worst resolution across similar types of projector.

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Analog Resolution

The biggest maximum analog resolution of the NEC P401 is 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 20% more maximum analog resolution than the most common maximum analog resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels.

This multimedia projector's maximum analog resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) is in fact the best maximum analog resolution across all multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Across similar types of multimedia projector the worst maximum analog resolution is 640 x 480 pixels.

Three USB 2.0 Ports

The NEC P401 is a three USB 2.0 port data projector.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The NEC P401 has more HDMI ports than most of the multimedia projectors of this type and age. This projector is a two HDMI port multimedia projector compared to most of the projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the P401 which only have one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Optical Zoom

At 1.7 times zoom factor, the NEC P401 has a quite big optical zoom compared to most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago. The smallest optical zoom of multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the P401 is 1.1x and the biggest is 2.1x.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Brightness in Economy Mode

The dimmest brightness in economy mode of 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the P401 is 1,500 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 3,000 ANSI lumens. At 2,680 ANSI lumens, the NEC P401 has a quite bright brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the P401.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

At only 0.4 Watts, the NEC P401 has a fairly low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago have power consumption during PowerSave of between 0.2W and 250W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 28W.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The NEC P401 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for more than two years, the NEC P401 does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the P401, the NEC P401 does not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the NEC P501X.

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

At only 0.12 kilohertz, the NEC P401 has a fairly low maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the P401. Across all the projectors that were released more than two years ago the maximum vertical synchronization range from 0.12kHz to 120kHz.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The NEC P401 is quite heavy (4.1 kilograms) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago. The lightest projector of this spec and age is 1.2kg heavy and the heaviest is 28kg.
