Very High RMS Rated Power

The NEC M332 has one of the highest RMS rated powers (20 Watts) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The lowest RMS rated power of similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1W, the highest is 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 8.9W.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At 8,000 hours, the NEC M332 has a fairly long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago. The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 7,100h.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Bulb Power

The NEC M332 has a fairly big bulb power (270 Watts) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the M332. The bulb powers of comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the M332 range from 15W to 840W, and the average bulb power is 240W.

8 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many multimedia projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Most projectors of this spec and age do not support 3D. The NEC M332 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the Acer X1111, the Infocus IN136 ($1,424.14), or the Panasonic PT-DZ21 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The NEC M332 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the M332 also do not support full HD.

Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might want to look at include the Acer X1311, or the Epson 1975W ($1,908.34) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the M332 do not support wi-Fi. The NEC M332 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the EB-X18, or the PowerLite 1222 ($695.00) both from Epson or the Benq W1500 ($1,976.29) is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC M332

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,300 ANSI lumens, the NEC M332 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the M332.

There are a number of other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the BrightLink 595WI+ ($1,936.99), or the PowerLite 585W both from Epson.

If this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the NEC M352 ($2,349.00) (3,500 ANSI lumens), the Panasonic PT-TX400 (3,500 ANSI lumens), or the Acer H6520BD (3,500 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

NEC's NP-M332XS 3D-capable short-throw projector is bright enough for a small to midsize room, and you can place it close to the screen and still get a nice big image...

Bright
Short-throw lens for a big image from close to the screen
Nearly rainbow-free data images
Although 3D works with sources like Blu-ray players, using it is awkward
