8 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors produced by NEC have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that NEC also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports Wi-Fi

The NP-P501X supports wi-Fi. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the NP-P501X do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other data projectors which support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the NP-P501X, the NEC NP-P501X has a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

At 5,000 ANSI lumens, the NEC NP-P501X has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. Across all the 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the NP-P501X the projector brightnesss range from 500 ANSI lumens to 13,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,700 ANSI lumens.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC P501X[plb_1555276_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NP-P501X supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. This projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) supported graphics resolutions is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-P501X.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of projector.

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

Most of the other data projectors of this type and age only have one HDMI ports quantity, however the NP-P501X has two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Bulb Power

Across all the projectors that came out more than two years ago the bulb powers range from 180W to 380W, and the average bulb power is 230W. With a bulb power of 270 Watts, the NP-P501X has one of the bigger bulb powers amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Supports Four Image Formats Supporteds

The NP-P501X has a greater number of supported image formats than most projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it. This data projector supports a JPG image formats supported, which is the most frequently supported image formats supported supported by 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-P501X. The image formats supporteds "BMP", "GIF" and "PNG" are also supported by this multimedia projector.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the NP-P501X, the NEC NP-P501X does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Most 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the NP-P501X do not support 3D. The NP-P501X is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to consider include the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price].

Only AAC++ Audio Formats Supported

This projector audio formats supported, which is typical of many data projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Data projectors of a similar age and spec to the NP-P501X have weights of between 3.4g and 28kg. With a weight of 4.1 kilograms, the NEC NP-P501X is quite heavy compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the NP-P501X.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

At 30 decibels, the NEC NP-P501X has a quite loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the NP-P501X. The average noise level (economic mode) of comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the NP-P501X is 30dB.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-P501X

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this NEC data projector was released.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the NEC NP-P501X has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the NP-P501X.

We compared this projector to all the other 37dB noise level projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-P451[plb_1547970_price] is also worth considering.
