11 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

This data projector received an expert rating of 70% from PC Mag.

Good Product Quality

Several customers said in their reviews that it was good quality. Expert review site Pcmag.com mentioned “A DLP-based XGA (1,024-by-768) data projector designed for classrooms and conference rooms, provides good data-image quality and a thorough set of connection choices” in their NEC NP-M283X review. Pcmag.com also mentioned “The DLP-based NEC Display Solutions NP-M283X offers good data-image quality”. Pc Mag said in their NEC NP-M283X review “Good data-image quality in our tests”.

Good Brand

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

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the NP-M283X, the NP-M283X has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma W515, the Vivitek DX3351, and the NEC NP-M403X ($780.99) is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NP-M283X supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the NP-M283X. In addition, this projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA). Projectors that were released one year ago supported graphics resolutionss range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

The average RMS rated power of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year is 12W, and the RMS rated powers range from 2W to 20W. With an RMS rated power of 20 Watts, the NEC NP-M283X has a very high RMS rated power compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than a year is 34dB, and the noise levels range from 27dB to 47dB. The NEC NP-M283X has a fairly quiet noise level (only 31 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the NP-M283X.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the NP-M283X is 1,000h and the longest is 30,000h. The NP-M283X has a quite long service life of lamp (economic mode) (10,000 hours) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-M283X.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

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

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

At only 27 decibels, the NP-M283X has a quite quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the NP-M283X. Multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the NP-M283X have noise level (economic mode)s of between 26dB and 43dB.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption (economy Mode)

With a power consumption (economy mode) of only 170 Watts, the NP-M283X has a very low power consumption (economy mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-M283X. The lowest power consumption (economy mode) of projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the NP-M283X is 170W and the highest is 760W.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The NEC NP-M283X does not support 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the NP-M283X also do not support 3D.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D to this data projector and we think the H6517ST ($610.94), or the H6517ST both from Acer or the NEC NP-M363W ($895.00) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the NP-M283X, the NEC NP-M283X does not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the NP-M403X ($780.99), the PH1202HL, or the NP-M363W ($895.00) all from NEC which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NP-M283X does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the NP-M283X also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Powerlite W28+, or the EX7235 ($649.97) both from Epson or the Hitachi CP-AW2505 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-M283X is 600 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 12,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,800 ANSI lumens, the NEC NP-M283X has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the NP-M283X.

If you are looking for a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Acer H6517ST (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Epson Home Cinema 600 ($355.34) (3,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

Quite Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

The NP-M283X has a fairly dim lamp power (economic mode) (only 120 Watts) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago. Across all the multimedia projectors that were released one year ago the lamp power (economic mode)s range from 120W to 280W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

The bulb powers of projectors of a similar age and spec to the NP-M283X range from 170W to 420W. At only 200 Watts, the NP-M283X has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the NP-M283X.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

Most projectors of a similar age and type to the NP-M283X have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys, including the NP-M283X which has one USB 2.0 ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

With a matrix size of only 0.55 inches, the NP-M283X has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-M283X. The smallest matrix size of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the NP-M283X is 0.55" and the biggest is 0.76".
