13 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

Supports 3D

The NEC M403W supports 3D, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the M403W which do not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support 3D and we think the PT-VW355N ($1,226.95), and the PT-VX425N ($1,282.95) both from Panasonic which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of other projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to consider including the Acer U5520B.

Supports Full HD

The NEC M403W supports full HD, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the M403W which do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors which support full HD currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Panasonic PT-VW355N ($1,226.95).

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Hitachi CP-TW2505 ($1,392.99), or the Acer U5520B.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC M403W has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Panasonic PT-VW355N ($1,226.95) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might also want to look at including the Hitachi CP-TW2505 ($1,392.99), or the Acer U5520B.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens, the NEC M403W has one of the brighter projector brightnesss amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the similar spec projectors that have been around for more than a year the projector brightnesss range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens.

If this NEC projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Hitachi CPX4041WN (4,200 ANSI lumens), or the Panasonic PT-VX425N ($1,282.95) (4,500 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NEC M403W supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). This multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 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 720 (HD 720), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1376 x 768, 1440 x 1050, 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1440 x 900, 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1600 x 900 and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+). The best resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the M403W is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).
