15 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This projector has an average expert rating of 75 out of 100 based on two expert reviews from sites including PC Mag and projectorcentral.com.

Good Product Quality

Three NEC M402 reviewers who bought the product wrote that it was good quality. Expert review site Pcmag.com said two years ago “The NEC Display Solutions NP-M402X projector($959) offers high quality for data images” in their review of the NEC M402. Pcmag.com also wrote “The NEC NP-M402X projector delivers high quality for data screens, plus conveniences like 3D support”. Pc Mag said on PC Mag “Excellent quality for data images”.

NEC Has Good Projector Reviews

NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors have good reviews on average and across all projectors NEC is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Good Size

One NEC M402 owner said in their reviews that it was heavy and bulky. Expert review site Projectorcentral.com gave the product a rating of 79 out of 100 and said “It's also heavy enough, at eight pounds, not to mention bulky enough, at 3.5" x 13.4" x 10.1" (HWD), to make it more a”.

Good High Def TV

One NEC M402 reviewer concluded that this projector was good at displaying high definition TV. Expert review site Crn.com said “This one has full HD resolution and supports 3-D, HDMI copy protection, direct USB input, centraliz” in their review of the NEC M402.

Supports Full HD

The NEC M362W supports full HD, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M362W which do not support full HD.

There are a number of other data projectors which support full HD currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC M362W has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price], and the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] is also worth considering.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The NEC M362W has a quite bright projector brightness (4,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched more than two years ago. Projectors of this type and age have projector brightnesss of between 300 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the Epson 1980WU[plb_2746486_price] (4,400 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NEC M362W is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the M362W. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this NEC data projector. This multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

The worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of data projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the M362W, the NEC M362W does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most multimedia projectors of this age and type do not support wi-Fi. The NEC M362W is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.
