13 Reasons For

NEC Projectors Have Good Reviews

NEC has good average ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD

The NEC M362 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the M362 do not support full HD.

There are a number of other projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to look at including the Acer H6520BD which is cheaper; or the Benq W1070 ($599.00) which has better reviews.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support full HD which you might also want to look at including the Infocus IN8606HD.

Supports 3D

The NEC M362 supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the M362 do not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support 3D and we think the Benq W1070 ($599.00) which has better reviews; or the Acer H6520BD which is cheaper are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support 3D including the Infocus IN8606HD.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC M362 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Benq W1070 ($599.00), and the Acer K335 ($524.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Infocus IN8606HD is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NEC M362 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the M362. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this NEC multimedia projector. This projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 800, 1280 x 960, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the M362 the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

At 3,600 ANSI lumens, the NEC M362 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the M362. The projector brightnesss of similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the M362 range from 300 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most commonly found projector native resolution on projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 33 decibels, the NEC M362 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M362. Across all the multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the M362 the noise levels range from 28dB to 49dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.

Alternative 33dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to look at include the W1070 ($599.00), or the W1400 both from Benq or the Acer K335 ($524.99) which has better reviews.
