10 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Projector Reviews

Multimedia projectors from NEC have an average rating of 83 out of 100, which is in the top 34% of all data projector brands that we have looked at.

Supports Full HD

The NEC M403X supports full HD. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors which support full HD and we think because of it's better review score, the GT5000, and the HD28DSE ($674.00) both from Optoma or the LG PF1500 ($731.99) is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the M403X, the NEC M403X has a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Epson EB-536Wi or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the LG PF1500 ($731.99).

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at including the Optoma X320UST.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other projectors of this age and spec, the NEC M403X supports 3D.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support 3D currently available which you might also want to look at including the GT5000, or the HD28DSE ($674.00) both from Optoma which has better reviews.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to consider include the Optoma X320UST.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NEC M403X supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the M403X. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. This data projector also 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 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1280 x 960, 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 and 1600 x 900 and 1680 x 1050 (W. The worst resolution of all data projectors that were launched around the same time as the M403X is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

When compared to other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the M403X, the RMS rated power of the NEC M403X of 20 Watts is one of the highest. The RMS rated powers of data projectors that were released around the same time as the M403X range from 1.5W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Very High Vertical Synchronization (max)

With a vertical synchronization (max) of 120 kilohertz, the NEC M403X has a fairly high vertical synchronization (max) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. The vertical synchronization (max)s of comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago range from 0.12kHz to 120kHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the M403X is 22dB, the loudest is 39dB, and the average noise level is 32dB. With a noise level of only 30 decibels, the NEC M403X has one of the quieter noise levels amongst data projectors of this age.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Epson EB-536Wi (37dB and cheaper), or the Optoma W402 ($731.67) (28dB and cheaper).

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the M403X do not support wi-Fi. The NEC M403X is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

At only 162 Watts, the NEC M403X has a fairly dim lamp power (economic mode) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago. Comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the M403X have lamp power (economic mode)s of between 61W and 11,000W, and the average lamp power (economic mode) is 2,400W.
