12 Reasons For

One Industry Award

One expert review site decided that this NEC multimedia projector was good. Projectorreviews.com gave this projector a "Hot Product" award.

NEC Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

NEC is one of the superior data projector brands according to average reviews from experts and users, and NEC also has good ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Easy to Use

One NEC M363W reviewer who reviewed the NEC M363W concluded that it was easy to setup. Projectorreviews.com wrote last year “Easy to setup”.

Good Picture Quality

One person mentioned in their reviews that it had a sharp image. Last year Projectorreviews.com said “Good sharpness with any normally used resolution” in their NEC M363W review.

Good Size

One NEC M363W owner who bought it concluded that it was compact. Projectorreviews.com wrote last year “Presentation flexibility in a compact package that should please business” .

Supports Full HD

The NEC M363W supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the M363W do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD and we think the M333XS, and the M323W ($641.49) both from NEC or the Benq MH741 ($687.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC M363W has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the M363W also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Epson PowerLite 955W ($699.00), the NEC M333XS, or the Hitachi CPAW2505 which has better reviews.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NEC M363W supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this NEC data projector). In addition, this projector 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+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+). Across all projectors of a similar spec and age to the M363W the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

At 20 Watts, the NEC M363W has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. The RMS rated powers of similar spec projectors that were released one year ago range from 2W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The NEC M363W has one of the quieter noise levels (only 31 decibels) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than a year have noise levels of between 27dB and 47dB, and the average noise level is 34dB.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

The NEC M363W has a quite long service life of lamp (5,500 hours) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the M363W. Comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the M363W have service life of lamps of between 1,500h and 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 multimedia projectors of this type and age.

7 Reasons Against

Inferior Remote Control

One customer wrote in their reviews that the product did not have a good remote control. Projectorreviews.com said in their NEC M363W review “Remote can be difficult to operate in a dark room, since it has no backlight or glowinthedark buttons” .

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type, the NEC M363W does not support 3D.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support 3D including the M333XS, or the M303WS both from NEC or the Benq MH741 ($687.99) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC M363W does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago also do not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Panasonic PT-VX425N ($1,282.95) which is also higher rated.

Very Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

With a lamp power (economic mode) of only 150 Watts, the NEC M363W has a fairly dim lamp power (economic mode) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than a year. The average lamp power (economic mode) of similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the M363W is 180W, and the lamp power (economic mode)s range from 120W to 280W.
