13 Reasons For

NEC Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors built by NEC have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors) and found that NEC also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports 3D

The NEC M303WS supports 3D, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than a year which do not support 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including the NEC M333XS which is cheaper.

There are a number of other projectors which also support 3D which you might want to consider including the Benq MW855UST ($1,299.99), or the Panasonic PT-VX425N ($1,282.95).

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC M303WS has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Hitachi CPAW2505, and the NEC M333XS which is cheaper is also worth considering.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Hitachi CPX4041WN.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NEC M303WS supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by data projectors of this age and spec. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution amongst all similar spec projectors that were released one year ago.

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

Quite High RMS Rated Power

Across all the projectors of a similar age and type to the M303WS the RMS rated powers range from 2W to 20W. With an RMS rated power of 20 Watts, the NEC M303WS has one of the higher RMS rated powers amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

Most multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the M303WS have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys, including the NEC M303WS which has two HDMI ports quantitys.

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of projectors that have been on the market for more than a year range from 1,000h to 30,000h. At 8,000 hours, the NEC M303WS has a fairly long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the M303WS.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of 5,500 hours, the NEC M303WS has one of the longer service life of lamps amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The service life of lamps of data projectors of a comparable age and type to the M303WS range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 5,700h.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data rates on projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The NEC M303WS has one of the quieter noise levels (only 27 decibels) amongst projectors of this age. The quietest noise level of similar spec data projectors that were released more than a year ago is 27dB and the loudest is 47dB.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the NEC M323W (30dB and cheaper).

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

Across all the similar spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the M303WS the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 43dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB. The NEC M303WS has a quite quiet noise level (economic mode) (only 27 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the M303WS.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption (economy Mode)

The average power consumption (economy mode) of projectors of this spec and age is 250W. When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the M303WS, the power consumption (economy mode) of the NEC M303WS of only 179 Watts is one of the lowest.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The NEC M303WS does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the M303WS also do not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support full HD which you might want to look at including the Benq MH741 ($691.99) or the NEC M333XS.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC M303WS does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the M303WS also do not support wi-Fi.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Panasonic PT-VX425N ($1,282.95).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Projectors of this type and age have projector brightnesss of between 600 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens. At only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the NEC M303WS has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the M303WS.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite 955W ($699.00) is also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the NEC M333XS (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CPWX3541WN (3,700 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.

Quite Small Bulb Power

The smallest bulb power of multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the M303WS is 170W, the biggest is 420W, and the average bulb power is 240W. The bulb power of the NEC M303WS of only 171 Watts is one of the smallest amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the M303WS.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

At only 135 Watts, the NEC M303WS has a quite dim lamp power (economic mode) compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the M303WS. The lamp power (economic mode)s of similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the M303WS range from 120W to 280W, and the average lamp power (economic mode) is 180W.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Digital Zoom

The average digital zoom of multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the M303WS is 1.8x. The NEC M303WS has one of the smallest digital zooms (only 1.2 times zoom factor) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.
