Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

The dimmest lamp power (economic mode) of similar spec data projectors that were released more than a year ago is 61W, the brightest is 11,000W, and the average lamp power (economic mode) is 2,400W. The NEC NP-M323W has one of the dimmer lamp power (economic mode)s (only 135 Watts) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

The service life of lamps of multimedia projectors of this age and type range from 3,500h to 30,000h. At only 3,500 hours, the NP-M323W has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other battery powered projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-M323W.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The average weight of battery powered projectors that are a similar age to the NP-M323W is 1.4kg. With a weight of 3.5 kilograms, the NEC NP-M323W is fairly heavy compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.
