10 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all NEC projectors and also specifically for NEC 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases NEC had good ratings compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC M271 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the M271.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the VPL-DW122 ($499.94), the VPL-DX142 ($736.83), and the VPL-DX122 ($499.95) all from Sony is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NEC M271 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors of a comparable age and type to the M271. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this NEC multimedia projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1280 x 960, 1600 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The best resolution of all comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the M271 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Analog Resolution

The NEC M271 has a maximum maximum analog resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 20% more maximum analog resolution than a 1600 x 1200 pixels data projector, which is the most frequently found maximum analog resolution.

This data projector's maximum analog resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) is actually the best maximum analog resolution across all comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the M271.

Across comparable types of data projector the worst maximum analog resolution is 640 x 480 pixels.

Three USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys, however the NEC M271 has three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

When compared to other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the M271 that we have checked the service life of lamp (economic mode) of, the NEC M271's service life of lamp (economic mode) of 10,000 hours is one of the longest. Across all the multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 230h to 20,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

The average service life of lamp of projectors of a comparable type and age to the M271 is 4,400h, and the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h. With a service life of lamp of 6,000 hours, the NEC M271 has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the M271.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 26 decibels, the NEC M271 has a very quiet noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the M271. The quietest noise level of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the M271 is 26dB and the loudest is 45dB.

Average Expert Reviews

Based on two expert reviews from sites including PC Mag and IT Reviews.com this 3000:1 contrast ratio projector has an average expert rating of 65 out of 100.

Does Not Support 3D

The NEC M271 does not support 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the M271 also do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors of this spec and age, the NEC M271 does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC M271 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the M271 also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the M271 is 3,500 ANSI lumens. At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the NEC M271 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the VPL-DX142 ($736.83) (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-DX147 ($725.00) (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Sony which also has a higher rating.
