17 Reasons For

Good Product Quality

A few NEC V311 reviewers wrote in their reviews that it was good quality. Pcmag.com mentioned in their review “It showed good data image quality in our testing, has a solid range of connection ports, is portable”. Pcmag.com also wrote “The NEC NP-V311W provides 3D capability and good image quality”. Pcmag.com also wrote “Its data image quality is good”.

Good Picture Quality

A few NEC V311 owners wrote in their reviews that the product had good picture quality.

Good 3D Picture Quality

Several customers who reviewed the NEC V311 agreed that it had a good 3D picture quality. Two years ago Pcmag.com said on PC Mag “Is 3D cap”.

NEC Projectors Have Good Reviews

NEC has good average reviews for its 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other brands.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The NEC V311 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the V311 do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the NP-M311W[pl_1525270_price], and the NP-V311[pl_1617184_price] both from NEC or the Infocus IN3124[plb_1475112_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC V311 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the EB-426Wi[pl_1946842_price], or the EB-430 LW[pl_1837070_price] both from Epson or the Benq SH960[plb_1385329_price].

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The NEC V311 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the V311. In addition, this NEC projector supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA). Across all 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the V311 the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

7 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Average

Based on two expert reviews from sites including PC Mag and IT Reviews.com this projector has an average expert rating of 65%.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The NEC V311 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the V311 also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq SH960[plb_1385329_price], the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price], or the Vivitek D8300[plb_1986896_price] which is also higher rated.

2 Other reasons to consider the NEC V311

Released Over Three Years Ago

NEC released the V311 over three years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the NEC V311 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the V311.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the NP-M311W[pl_1525270_price], and the NP-V311[pl_1617184_price] both from NEC or the Epson BrightLink 485Wi[plb_1778249_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the VPL-SX235[pl_2284442_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens), the VPL-DX142[pl_2446393_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-DX147[pl_2516968_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) all from Sony which also has a higher rating.
