13 Reasons For

NEC Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all projectors produced by NEC.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the M323W which do not support 3D, the NEC M323W supports 3D.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Hitachi CP-CX301WN[plb_3419087_price] or you might consider a higher rated multimedia projector such as the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price], or the NEC M323X[plb_3084492_price].

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the M323W which do not support full HD, the NEC M323W supports full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which support full HD to this data projector and we think the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price] which has better reviews; or the CP-WX3041WN[pl_3792952_price], and the CP-CX301WN[pl_3419087_price] both from Hitachi which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the M323W, the NEC M323W has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Hitachi CP-WX3041WN[plb_3792952_price] or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price].

Alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at include the Panasonic PT-VX420[plb_3723242_price].

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NEC M323W supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by multimedia projectors of this age and type. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this NEC multimedia projector. This data projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 800 x 600 (SVGA), 832 x 624, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1152 x 870, 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1376 x 768, 1440 x 1050, 1440 x 900, 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1600 x 900 and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+). Across all 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the M323W the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

The NEC M323W has one of the higher RMS rated powers (20 Watts) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than a year ago the RMS rated powers range from 2W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 12W.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Vertical Synchronization (max)

The average vertical synchronization (max) of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the M323W is 52kHz, and the vertical synchronization (max)s range from 0.085kHz to 120kHz. With a vertical synchronization (max) of 120 kilohertz, the NEC M323W has one of the higher vertical synchronization (max)s amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The NEC M323W is a two HDMI ports quantity data projector. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The NEC M323W is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity multimedia projector. Most of the other projectors that have been around for more than a year have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

The NEC M323W has a fairly long service life of lamp (5,500 hours) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the M323W. The service life of lamps of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the M323W range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 5,700h.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of projectors that were released more than a year ago range from 27dB to 47dB, and the average noise level is 34dB. At only 30 decibels, the NEC M323W has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released one year ago.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the NEC V302W[plb_2988132_price] (34dB) which is also cheaper.

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors that came out more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (economy Mode)

With a power consumption (economy mode) of only 202 Watts, the NEC M323W has one of the lower power consumption (economy mode)s amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The average power consumption (economy mode) of data projectors that came out around the same time as the M323W is 250W.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC M323W does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the M323W also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

The dimmest lamp power (economic mode) of multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year is 120W, the brightest is 280W, and the average lamp power (economic mode) is 180W. With a lamp power (economic mode) of only 135 Watts, the NEC M323W has one of the dimmer lamp power (economic mode)s amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The average noise level (economic mode) of projectors that have been on the market for more than a year is 30dB. With a noise level (economic mode) of 30 decibels, the NEC M323W has one of the louder noise level (economic mode)s amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC M323W

Released Over a Year Ago

This multimedia projector was released over a year ago.

Average Projector Brightness

The NEC M323W has a relatively average projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
