7 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

On average projectors made by NEC are rated 83 out of 100, which is in the top 37% of all multimedia projector brands that we have assessed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago which do not support 3D image projection, the NEC U260W supports 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the NEC U260W has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1400 X 1050 (SXGA+) Graphics Resolution

The NEC U260W supports a maximum resolution of 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+). That's over four times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the U260W. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this NEC multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The worst resolution of all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the U260W is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the NEC U260W is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the U260W the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the U260W is 28dB, the loudest is 42dB, and the average noise level is 36dB. The NEC U260W has a fairly quiet noise level (only 33 decibels) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the U260W.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Sony VPLFH31[plb_1475953_price] (37dB).

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of this spec and age do not support Full HD projection. The NEC U260W is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors that have been available for a similar time to the U260W do not support WiFi connectivity. The NEC U260W is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the U260W the projector brightness range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the NEC U260W has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Hitachi CP-EX250[plb_1874387_price] (2,700 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Lamp Power

The NEC U260W has a fairly small lamp power (only 230 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. Similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the U260W have lamp power of between 170W and 4,000W, and the average lamp power is 320W.
