4 Reasons For

NEC Projectors Have Good Reviews

Data projectors manufactured by NEC are some of the better data projectors according to average reviews from users and experts.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC UM361 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 6000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than a year also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the NEC UM301 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The NEC UM361 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 60% more resolution than a 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year. 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) is also supported by this NEC projector. In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 960, 1600 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x 1200 (W.

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1080 (HD 1080)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago.

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