15 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Data Projector Reviews

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

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the M403H which do not support 3D, the NEC M403H supports 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including the Benq W1350[plb_2750779_price] which has better reviews; or the Acer U5520B[plb_3013609_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq MH856UST[plb_2921325_price] is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD

The NEC M403H supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which support full HD to this data projector and we think the Acer U5520B[plb_3013609_price], and the Hitachi CP-TW2505[plb_3255162_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the Benq MH856UST[plb_2921325_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC M403H has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the M403H 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 MX882UST[plb_3258682_price], and the Acer U5520B[plb_3013609_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The NEC M403H has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). The worst resolution of all projectors of a similar age and spec to the M403H is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than a year is 600 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens, the NEC M403H has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the M403H.

We compared this projector to all the other 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think the NEC M403W[plb_3078396_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price] (4,500 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NEC M403H supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this 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+), 1152 x 870, 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1280 x 960, 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 x 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 900 and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x. The best resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the M403H is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

The NEC M403H has one of the higher RMS rated powers (20 Watts) amongst data projectors of this age. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the M403H the RMS rated powers range from 2W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The NEC M403H is a two HDMI ports quantity projector.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The NEC M403H is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity data projector. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that were launched more than a year ago have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

This multimedia projector has a maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is typical of many data projectors of a comparable age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

Across all the multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h. With a service life of lamp of 5,500 hours, the NEC M403H has one of the longer service life of lamps amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of multimedia projectors of this type and age is 34dB, and the noise levels range from 27dB to 47dB. At only 30 decibels, the NEC M403H has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the M403H.

We compared all the other 30dB noise level data projectors to this projector and we think the NEC M403W[plb_3078396_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Quite Big Bulb Power

Comparable spec data projectors that have been available for more than a year have bulb powers of between 170W and 420W. With a bulb power of 270 Watts, the NEC M403H has a quite big bulb power compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the M403H.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC M403H does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec also do not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi including the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price], or the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price] both from Panasonic which is also cheaper.
