15 Reasons For

Good Expert Reviews

This NEC multimedia projector received an expert rating of 80 out of 100 from IT Reviews.com.

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

NEC has good average reviews for its 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire data projector range.

Good Size

One person who reviewed it thought it was easy to carry around. Itreviews.com mentioned in their review on IT Reviews.com three years ago “In particular, it’s LCD based, it’s just as easy to carry” and scored it 80 out of 100.

Acceptable Noise Level

One NEC NP-M311W reviewer reckoned that this projector was noisy. Itreviews.com said in their NEC NP-M311W review three years ago “A usefully loud audio system” .

Good Sound Quality

One person who reviewed the NEC NP-M311W reckoned that it had good sound quality.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the NP-M311W which do not support 3D, the NEC NP-M311W supports 3D.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NP-M311W has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the NP-M311W.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the V11H475020, and the EB-425W both from Epson which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1280 x 800 (WXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is the most commonly supported supported graphics resolutions on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The NEC NP-M311W has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the NP-M311W. This multimedia projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector compared to most of the multimedia projectors of this spec and age which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Optical Zoom

At 1.7 times zoom factor, the NP-M311W has a fairly big optical zoom compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the NP-M311W. 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago have optical zooms of between 1x and 2x, and the average optical zoom is 1.5x.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The NEC NP-M311W has a quite long service life of lamp (economic mode) (8,000 hours) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago. The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the NP-M311W range from 230h to 20,000h.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

At only 28 decibels, the NEC NP-M311W has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago. Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 35dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

With a power consumption (PowerSave) of only 0.2 Watts, the NP-M311W has a fairly low power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago. The power consumption (PowerSave)s of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 0.1W to 330W.

3 Reasons Against

Poor Product Quality

One customer mentioned in their reviews that the NEC NP-M311W was not good quality. Three years ago It Reviews.com said “Good (not great) audio quality”.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NP-M311W does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the NP-M311W also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the EB-425W, or the BrightLink 436Wi ($1,861.72) both from Epson is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The NEC NP-M311W does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-M311W also do not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support full HD which you might want to consider including the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating.

Average Noise Level

The NP-M311W has a relatively standard noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-M311W.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 35dB noise level projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the NP-VE281X ($694.00), or the VE281 both from NEC.
