12 Reasons For

NEC Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

NEC 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all projectors NEC is one of the superior brands.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NEC V281W supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the V281W do not support 3D image projection.

Alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might want to look at include the NEC NP-M311W which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC V281W has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the V281W also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the NEC V281W is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). This multimedia projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all projectors of a similar type and age to the V281W.

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

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Matrix Size

Across all the projectors that have been available for around the same time as the V281W the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.75", and the average matrix size is 0.61". At 0.65 inches, the NEC V281W has a quite big matrix size compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the V281W only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the NEC V281W has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The biggest maximum digital resolution of the NEC V281W is 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's 8% more maximum digital resolution than a 1600 x 1200 pixels projector, which is the most common maximum digital resolution.

This data projector's maximum digital resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) is in fact the best maximum digital resolution amongst all comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Amongst similar types of data projector the worst maximum digital resolution is 1600 x 1200 pixels.

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the V281W have widths of between 120mm and 510mm. With a width of only 310 millimeters, the NEC V281W is quite narrow compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the V281W.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 2.5 kilograms, the NEC V281W is quite light compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the V281W. Across all the comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago the weights range from 230g to 30kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave

At only 0.5 Watts, the NEC V281W has a quite low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the V281W. The power consumption during PowerSave of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the V281W range from 0.1W to 330W, and the average power consumption during PowerSave is 170W.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of this age and spec do not support Full HD projection. The NEC V281W is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support WiFi connectivity. The NEC V281W is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might want to consider including the NEC NP-UM330 ($489.00) which also has a higher rating.

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of multimedia projectors of this spec and age is 0.5W and the highest is 20W. The NEC V281W has one of the lower RMS rated power (only 7 Watts) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

Multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the V281W have noise levels in economy mode of between 26dB and 35dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB. With a noise level in economy mode of 33 decibels, the NEC V281W has one of the louder noise levels in economy mode amongst data projectors of this age.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC V281W

Released Over Three Years Ago

NEC released the V281W over three years ago.

Average Noise Level

The NEC V281W has a pretty standard noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the V281W.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 37dB noise level projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Hitachi CP-WX8255A.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,800 ANSI lumens, the NEC V281W has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the V281W.

We compared all the other 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think the NEC VE281 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Sony VPL-SW235 ($969.95) (3,000 ANSI lumens), the Promethean UST-P1 (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP-CX300WN (3,100 ANSI lumens).
