Several customers who bought this projector agreed that it was well made. Pcmag.com rated it 70 out of 100 and mentioned in their review of this projector on expert website PC Mag “The NEC Display Solutions NP-M322W ($799) is a solid data projector for classroom or business use”.

Good Sound Quality

Three customers who purchased it thought it had good sound quality.

NEC Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

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

Good Product Quality

One customer wrote in their reviews that it was good quality. Pc Mag mentioned “Good data-image quality” in their review of the NEC M322.

Supports Full HD

The NEC M322 supports full HD. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the M322 do not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Acer K137[plb_2190933_price].

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Acer H6510[plb_1557676_price], or the Benq TH681[plb_2192820_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC M322 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the M322.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Acer K137[plb_2190933_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the Acer H6510[plb_1557676_price], or the Epson EB-X20[plb_2017453_price] is also worth considering.
